GDT - Edmonton Oilers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
The Penguins head into Edmonton tonight to face the slumping Oilers. The Oilers are a horrendous 1-11-1 in their last 13 games since going on a 5-game winning streak on the road. The Penguins have had their own share of struggles lately, having gone 5-8-0 in the same stretch.
Both the brain and heart tell me this is going to be an ugly game, whether Pittsburgh has been hot or not (unless Dubnyk plays unreal). So that said, here are my predictions for the game:
Brain: Penguins 7, Oilers 4
Heart: Penguins 5, Oilers 2
One last thing… Tambellini addressed the media Wednesday about Khabibulin and some other issues. One topic of discussion was in regards to thecaptainethanmoreau’s in which this exchange took place:

GDT - Edmonton Oilers vs. Nashville Predators
Fresh off the 4-day mini camp, the Oilers are looking for a clean slate. Lubomir Visnovsky (who returns tonight) had this to say about the mini-camp: “We’ve been able to put in new systems and better systems during this mini camp. Hopefully, it’ll be like a new season, because the last season was very bad.” I’m not sure how well this mini camp will work, but Quinn reportedly was unimpressed by the way the lines ran the powerplay. The thing I am optimistic about though is that if this doesn’t work, there’s nowhere for anyone to hide.
The Oilers are an awesome 1-11 in their last dozen games. If anything, I feel a bit of pity for the team and want to see the mini camp work for them. Damn you, high draft pick. The Predators are 7-5 in the same period. They beat the Canucks last night by a score of 3-2. I’m not expecting much from the Oilers tonight, but in a way I’m hopeful that the reset button worked for them… Hall/Seguin/Fowler wishes, aside.
Brain: 5-2 Predators
Heart: 4-3 Oilers
