Looks like the Oilers are dressing the thug line up again tonight. Expect both MacIntyre and Stortini to be in. Also, I’d expect Strudwick in for Vandermeer, although I’m not entirely certain he’ll replace his minutes (Vandy has been fantastic lately, playing with Whitney).
The two teams are fairly equal, as far as records are concerned. The Oilers have been the hotter team as of late though, although their last two games they got lucky with the final score being what it was.
Last time the two teams faced was in November, and the Oilers came out on top with a 5-0 win. And while in the photo above, Orr is seen hitting MacIntyre in the face, this was just the starting point which set Big Mac off into destructo-mode, as the Oil won that fight too.
Prediction: 6-1 Oilers (please be true, as Trogdor and I will be at the game tonight)
Peckham – Gilbert
Whitney – Strudwick
Smid – Foster
MacArthur – Grabovski – Kulemin
Armstrong – Bozak – Kessel
Kadri – Mitchell – Versteeg
Orr – Brent – Sjostrom
Phaneuf – Beauchemin
Kaberle – Schenn
Lebda – Gunnarson
