This one’s an early one. Hopefully the Oilers are actually awake for this one. How many times have I used the word “hopefully” in a game day thread pre-game rant? Probably quite a lot. The Rangers are sitting in the middle of the pack, while the Oilers are once again basement dwellers – last in the league.
Since I’m actually writing this one the night before, I haven’t heard anything official on Horcoff, but it sounds like he will be playing against the Rangers. And hell, that lucky bastard Boston Oiler even got some confirmation on that, straight from the source. So that is good news.
Prediction: I always thought the Oilers were good vs. Eastern teams. I figure they’ll get a boost out of the return of Horcoff too. If they lose this one though, I’m going to get my brown bag out… (kidding).
Prediction: 6-3 Oilers
