The Oilers play the next two games on the road. Sometimes a road trip is good for ending a string of bad luck, sometimes its even worse for it. In this case, I think it will do the team some good as they already showed signs of recovery from the last game (and the rollercoaster ride continues). It was a 4-3 shootout loss vs. Phoenix, but the Oilers got off to a rare good start in the first period and held a 3-0 lead by mid-period 2. The Oil let the lead slip away though, and lost it in the shootout. Definitely not good, but there were a lot of strengths in this game. For one, our special teams were actually good. The first goal was by Hemsky, on the PK. The second goal was on the powerplay. In the first period, the Oilers killed off 7 (nearly) straight minutes of penalties (the penalties were courtesy of Andrew Cogliano, unfortunately for him). The Oilers did allow 1 in 3 kills and only scored 1 in 4 powerplay chances, but I’d still say things looked good on special teams.
Tonight they face the Ducks at perhaps a bad time, as they are 6-2-2 in their last 10. But really, is there ever a good time for the Oilers to play a team? I’m going to go with a win this time around, as the Oilers showed a pulse last game and could use it to their advantage.
Prediction: 4-2 Edmonton
