The Oilers will try for their 7th win in a row tonight vs. Phoenix. Really, this is quite an impressive feat considering it’s been years since they’ve had 6 in a row (back in March, 2002). This team has a lot of the media even buying in. I’d say they compare to the Colorado Avalanche 2 years ago – a team that everyone thought had no business being as good as they ended up being. Now, eventually the Oilers are going to come down to earth and lose a game, but it’s spectacular that they’re winning these games because every little bit counts when it comes to making the playoffs. Yes, they are months away, but you have to be looking that far forward if you hope to make it.
Prediction: 3-1 Oilers
