Auston Matthews game-time decision vs. Oilers

The latest Auston Matthews vs. Connor McDavid showcase may have to wait.

Sunday marks the second meeting in the past 11 days between the Oilers and Maple Leafs. Toronto took the late November matchup by a 6-4 score, in which Matthews picked up a goal and an assist.
