Tonight’s game might feature another new Oiler in Ryan Keller. He’s the guy pictured above with the dirty ‘stache. Sounds like there is a good chance he will play tonight. Shawn Horcoff is rumored to be battling the flu. Hopefully this flu bug ends very quickly. Get some shots or something, damn it. On a good note, Taylor Hall might be back tonight, as he sounds like he’s near 100% now. Khabibulin will get the start in net, which sounds like they’re going 50/50 with these goalies this year. So far, Dubnyk has been off and on, so I can kind of see the reasoning for it. Khabi has been good in his games so far (although one he was barely tested in)… so keep the rotation going until someone screws up royally.
I’ll be at the game for this one. Would love to see a win, however…
Prediction: 2-1 Wild.
