Tonight is as big of a “playoff” game as we’ll get to see this year. Winning this game would put the final nail in the coffin of the Calgary Flames’ playoff hopes. Wouldn’t that be nice? The Oilers are in a little danger of passing the Avalanche, but they’d have to run the table and the Avalanche would have to lose all their remaining games in regulation time. Each team has 3 games left. I think we’re pretty safe here, especially with the Wild coming up later. Although, we do play the Avalanche as one of our final 3… so that will be a very important game.
Anyways, I’m really hoping for a win tonight, so I’m going to send some good vibes with my prediction. Plus Alan-NottsUK will be at the game, and he’s money (currently seen 3 Oil games live and we’ve won all 3).
Prediction: 5-1 Oilers, if Dubnyk starts again. 5-4 if Khabi starts. 😛
