The Edmonton Oilers and the Boston Bruins will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at TD Garden.

ABOUT THE OILERS (19-13-7): Milan Lucic, who spent his first eight seasons with the Bruins before he was traded to Los Angeles following the 2014-15 campaign, will make his first appearance in Boston as a member of Edmonton. “It’s one of those games that you circle on your calendar,” Lucic acknowledged. “It’s special to come back. … The connection with the fans and the city is always still there.” Lucic has 10 goals and 26 points in 39 games in his first season with the Oilers.

ABOUT THE BRUINS (20-16-4): Forward David Backes, signed away from St. Louis in the offseason, returned to practice Wednesday and has received medical clearance after missing the previous two games due to a concussion. Coach Claude Julien told the media that Backes feels good but will wait until Thursday morning to decide whether he returns to the lineup. “There’s a difference between your head and your heart,” Backes acknowledged. “You’ve got to be smart about these things.”

currently has the Bruins listed as 150-moneyline favorites versus the Oilers, while the game’s total is sitting at 5.

The Edmonton Oilers were unable to slow the Columbus Blue Jackets‘ march toward history, but they will hope for a better result when they continue their four-game road trip with a visit to the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. The Oilers became victim No. 16 in a row for the Blue Jackets in Tuesday’s 3-1 loss at Columbus.

“It was a playoff-type environment and we had some go-to people out there who were invisible,” Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said after watching the Blue Jackets more than double his team’s shots on goal through the first two periods Tuesday. The Oilers are 5-2-3 over the past 10 games but have failed to score more than three goals in that span. Boston also is coming off a lackluster performance in a 3-0 setback at New Jersey on Monday, part of a stretch in which it is playing nine of 11 on the road. The Bruins won 13 consecutive games against Edmonton from 2001-2014 but have dropped the last three, including a 3-2 loss at home in December 2015.

Last time out for Boston, they were a 3-0 loser as they battled the Devils on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Devils at +132 were rewarded, while the 3 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Edmonton was a 3-1 loser on the road against the Blue Jackets. Bettors on Columbus at -157 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
