Nothing like going up against a team that has recorded points in its last 14 games (club record) after enjoying our first win after a 7 game skid. The Canucks have gone 12-0-2 in their last 14 contests and look to accomplish their first 8 game win streak since 8 years past. These are the kind of games where some crap team gets to play spoiler, so hopefully the boys are up to the challenge and can send the Sedin sisters home crying. This game kicks off a 5 game road trip for the Oilers, so hopefully a change of scenery is all they need to start winning again as last night’s win was the only of 5 games in a row at home.
“Gilbert Brule bruised his abdomen, according to head coach Tom Renney, and is day-to-day. … Jim Vandermeer suffered a right ankle injury on Thursday against the Islanders and did not return to the game. He is expected back in a few of days.”
