It just keeps getting worse for the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers will be without Ryan Nugent-Hopkins again tonight as they take on the Arizona Coyotes at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ. This is the final game of a three game road trip for the Oilers before having seven straight games at home in Edmonton.

As reported by NBCSports ProHockeyTalk, Nugent-Hopkins will miss his second game in a row after sustaining an undisclosed injury against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. The Oilers star forward took a big hit during that game which led to a rare fight. Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins stated that the injury was not related to Nugent-Hopkins' participation in that fight.

Also worth noting, Oilers forward Jordan Eberle is going to be a game-time decision tonight. Eberle was also out of the lineup last night during the Kings 6-1 drubbing of Edmonton.
