Game day again, folks. Lately that hasn’t been a very exciting time for us. But the way this roller coaster ride has gone, you never know if the Oil could show up for a game. This game also should mark the return of Ladislav Smid, as Shawn Belle was returned back to Oklahoma City. Smid has been out of the lineup since November 14th, while he tried to figure out how to tamper with the brakes on Sean Avery’s car.
The Avs are sitting in a decent spot so far this year, at 7th in the West. The Oilers of course remain in hockey hell, in dead last in the West, with the Islanders making a slightly stronger case for the #1 pick (so far).
Prediction: 5-2 Avalanche. Chorus of boos at Rexall (you bastards).
