ABOUT THE OILERS (1-4-1): After keeping Lightning superstar Steven Stamkos off the scoresheet, Nugent-Hopkins knows that Edmonton hosts a bevy of heavyweights during its season-high seven-game homestand. "It's good to go up against guys like that, they definitely push you to play better," Nugent-Hopkins said. "Playing against him, we have Ovechkin coming up here and (Pittsburgh's Sidney) Crosby a little bit later. Those kinds of guys, they really make you play your best." Ben Scrivens, who likely will be in net to face Ovechkin, has split a pair of starts against the Capitals in his career.
