PRE-GAME RANT

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!

    Good to see Plante back up! I thought he looked pretty decent on his first call up this year. As for Chorns….well he is kind of falling out of favor with me. I don’t really see anything other then a depth AHL defender in him at this point.

    Sorry, almost forgot to throw up the chat.. she’s up now!

    Really nice bounce back by the Oil tonight! Multi point night for Ebs again, loving that fo sho :) Most important of all… the Nashville Predators curse is officially history yaaa!! Now to put an end to that pesky Minny curse on the same trip :P

  4. Racki says:

    In other less happy news, Paajarvi hardly saw the ice.. got some 4th line minutes, or what? 8:32. Lowest TOI for the Oilers tonight.

  5. Racki says:

    Per Tencer: “RNH and Smyth both have 22 points, tied for 10th in league scoring. Kane, H. Sedin and Backstrom also have 22. Good company.”

    Great to read!

    Gagner: leagues smallest 4rth liner, soft hands, hard knuckles.

  7. Alan-NottsUK says:

    maybe MPS needs to drop the gloves to get going like Gags does.

  8. zackman35 says:

    It worked for Crosby, right?

    So, in other Washington Capital news…

    Who had Jason Chimera leading the Caps in goals at the quarter point in the season?

    lol.
