Well, the Oilers are now on a big 2 game winning streak, after taking it to Dany Heatley and the San Jose Sharks on Sunday. Those guys are in serious trouble, as they seem to be falling into their annual, end of the year / playoff meltdown already. The Oilers seem to be playing a bit better, in light of having the weight of the world off their shoulders now, and also a bit more improved defensive play, for the most part (despite having a pretty inexperienced crew) – although they definitely need to work on holding a lead, as usual. As far as the Canucks, they seem to be going fairly strong, being 6-2-2 in their last 10.
Vancouver has taken 4 of the 5 games so far this season. I think they’ll likely take this one as well.
Prediction: 5-2 Vancouver
