PRE-GAME RANT

Some are calling this the Basement Bowl… others the Toilet Bowl. Call it what you will, it’s two teams that have struggled immensely. The Avalanche have had a serious meltdown in the last month. The most recent standings I could check while Steve-O was still saving them and the Avalanche were a decent team was January 19th, and the Avs were sitting in 7th place in the West. This actually looks to be the meltdown point anyways, as I had a look and they’ve gone 2-21-3 since then!!! Yikes. That’s disgustingly bad. That’s reminiscent of that one January we hadn’t had a single win. But even the Oilers did better than that. I don’t think they’ve had such an awful stretch in such a short period of time. Talk about a disaster.

Now the Avalanche are contending with us for the 30th position in the league. They haven’t had a win in their last 10 games, and two of those losses came at the hand of the Oilers by a score of 5-1. This is one we can win. It will pull things tighter in the standings, but I know the players don’t want to finish 30th. They’ll do what they can to win this one.

Prediction: 4-2 Oilers

    Fraser out (hurt his foot blocking a shot), Strudwick moves up to forward, and Teddy makes his return to the line up. No clue on the line combos, so I made up my own above!

    Edit: forward lines confirmed

    I have to say…..those lines suck
