There are few teams in the NHL that can compete with the Oilers for bottom feeder position, and this afternoon the Oilers will face one of them in the Senators. The Senators are on a worse recent skid than the Oilers, as a matter of fact. They’ve dropped their last 5 and are winless in their last 11, and their last win was nearly a month ago (1 day shy). The Oilers are no slouches in the losing department either this year, and are 2-7-1 in their last 10. This match-up could have draft pick implications… OK, I’m just building this one up needlessly… this is probably not going to be an exciting one, but I do expect an Oilers win.
Prediction: 6-1 Oilers (where did that come from?)
Horcoff is out with Bronchitis … not 100% sure on the lineups, but these were the lines at yesterday’s practice.
Hall – Cogliano- Eberle
Paajarvi – Gagner – Omark
Reddox – Penner – Hemsky
Jacques – Fraser – Jones
Peckham – Gilbert
Vandermeer – Foster
