The plus is that the Oilers took both games at United Center last year. The negative is that the Blackhawks won the last two games between these teams (and quite handily – 4-1 and 5-0). The Oilers are having a rough go with this road trip as is too, although they are 2-3-0, at least. A win tonight will break this road trip even, which is all you can really ask for a team.
In some sad news today, Kyle Fundytus, an Edmonton teeanger, died today from injuries suffered from a game at Clareview arena yesterday. He was struck in the neck by the puck and had undergone surgery. Condolences to his friends and family.
Prediction: 4-1 Edmonton.. in hopes we break even on this road trip!
