The Oilers head into Dallas tonight to face another non-playoff team in the Stars. The Oilers have lost their last 3 games and are officially a lock for 30th place. The Stars are having an interesting pattern in their last 10 games.. lose one, win one, lose one, win one, etc… if things keep going that way, they’re due for a loss again, as their last game was a 5-1 win over the Stars, courtesy of a Steve Ott hattrick.
Prediction: 3-2 Oilers in the shootout.
Edmonton Oilers Projected Line-Up (subject to change)
Dallas Stars Projected Line-Up (subject to change)
- Moreau and O’Sullivan were scratched at Wednesday’s practice and may be out, with Jones and Linglet replacing them.
- Goaltender Matt Climie was recalled from Texas, by Dallas. I have a feeling he’ll be between the pipes for the Stars for this game.
- UPDATE: the scratches for tonight’s game (per Tencer) are Robert Nilsson and Patrick O’Sullivan. Jones and Linglet are in fact in. Linglet will wear number 36 for this game.
