Edmonton Oilers head coach Kris Knoblauch has confirmed that Evander Kane will be with the team as they prepare for game five against the Florida Panthers.

It was quite the show on Saturday night as the Edmonton Oilers dismantled the Florida Panthers with a 8-1 victory avoiding elimination. Connor McDavid led the Oilers to a convinicing win, all without Evander Kane, who was out with injury.
Kris Knoblauch has provided a new and improved update regarding the gritty forward.
Question: Does Evander Kane go with you to Game 5?

Knoblauch: Yes, Evander is going with us and there's a possibility and we'll just evaluate his health and make a decision then.

This is exciting news for the Edmonton Oilers, who will likely get back one of their wingers if the series extends. As for how the team is feeling down 3-1 to the Florida Panthers, Knoblauch described it as a confident and fun locker room:
I think our team, obviously after a game like that they feel good about themselves. They're feeling confident. But I think even when we were down three games to zero, our team felt confident about how they can play so I think it's important during the game that say line one has a strong shift, spends a lot of time in the offensive zone, I think I believe in that momentum. It helps build lines two or three after them just able to sustain that pressure. But things change very quickly.

The Edmonton Oilers get back to work on Tuesday night for an intense game five facing elimination in Sunrise Florida.
