Tonight, Sam Gagner returns to the line up. He was injured in a pre-season game vs. the Flames earlier this year when he went awkwardly into the boards on a hit. His return to the lineup comes at the expense of Linus Omark. I think Omark has played well, but that line has been really ineffective at generating offense. Time to shake things up a bit. I wouldn’t even mind seeing Hartikainen draw in there to help with some dirty goals.
Khabibulin gets the start tonight. *pauses for groans*. He was very strong in the last game vs. the Wild, playing a perfect game for 59 minutes and 59 seconds. Rough, rough break. Hopefully the same Khabibulin plays tonight, because he was quite stellar.
I think this could be the night where our offense comes out (finally).
Prediction: 4-1 Oilers
Hall – Nugent-Hopkins – Eberle
Smyth – Horcoff – Jones
Paajarvi – Belanger – Gagner
Eager – Lander – Petrell
Whitney – Potter
Smid – Gilbert
Sutton – Barker
