Covers Preview - The Edmonton Oilers try to avoid finishing their road trip without a victory when they visit the Minnesota Wild on Friday in the finale of their three-game trek. Edmonton settled for one point in the opener on Tuesday, squandering a 3-2 lead in the final minute of the third period at Buffalo before falling in overtime, and came up empty in Philadelphia two nights later as it dropped a 6-5 decision after blowing a two-goal advantage over the final 13 1/2 minutes.
