Aside from the hiccup in Minny, the Oilers have been playing a much better brand of hockey over their last 5 games. The Blues have been struggling in their playoff push and are without Halak who is currently on IR. Ex Oiler Conklin will likely be between the pipes tonight but not much of our roster will know him personally from the days of yore.
Speaking of tenders, Gerber has been called up as Khabibulin has sustained an eye injury. Police are still trying to determine if it was Larry, Curly or Moe who administered the eye gouge. I guess he’ll be sitting with Chorney who also left last game after injuring his knee.
Hall and Eberle continue their hot streaks so keep an eye on them tonight. They are the future of the team, so hot or not, all eyes are on them anyway.
Prediction: Winter will be cold again next year.
