Well, I’ll be at this one tonight (thanks to OG77, who will be going as well), but as always the GDT chat will be up. This one is on CBC tonight, of course, and is a later one at 8:00PM.
The Oilers have been riding a high as of late, sweeping their recent road trip in the east, and having won 4 of their last 5 games (they’re 5-4-1 in their last 10, which is pretty good for the way their season has gone). Right now they’re showing signs of improving as a team, but we all fear that they’ll soon return back down to earth. The top 3 scoring lines have all been clicking well though, and the defense has looked a little more defensive and a little less lost with some better help from the forwards. So it remains to be seen if this team has turned a corner or not. The Blues were a pretty tough team to start the year, but have gone on a 4 game skid. They are 3-7-0 in their last 10, so it definitely should be a game the Oilers can win.
Btw, Khabi gets the start tonight. He of course had a shutout in the last game, and stood on his head. He actually looked like the MVP that Tambellini thought he was. Too bad he can’t do that on a consistent basis.
Prediction: 4-1 Oilers.
Peckham – Gilbert
Whitney – Vandermeer
Smid – Foster
