When will these road horrors endddd? November sucks. Another reason to look forward to the new arena is we won’t have to add to our road woes in November by default with the CFR-induced road trip. It kills us yearly, I’m sure. Yes, the CFR is over, but I’m just saying that it just makes the month more grueling when we start off with 6, off the bat. Now we’re one game into a 4 game road trip again (to which the CFR can’t be blamed however). This November schedule just plain sucks.
Anyways, let’s hope that the Oilers can at least take A game on this road trip. Tonight sounds like a good enough one to take.
Taylor Chorney has been returned back to Oklahoma City. Alex Plante has been recalled. Aside from that, only a change in goalies marks this lineup as being any different tonight (so far… no word on Paajarvi returning to the lineup, for example).
No prediction again tonight…. win damn it!
* – per Dan Tencer, the Oilers will skate all 14 of these forwards during warm-up, then make a game-time decision as two who is scratched.
Smyth – Nugent-Hopkins – Eberle
Hall – Gagner – Hemsky
Lander – Horcoff – Jones
Hordichuk – Belanger – Petrell
Paajarvi – Eager
Smid – Gilbert
Peckham – Petry
Plante – Teubert
