On paper, the Oilers should get smoked horribly. I’m not so sure they won’t, but the Oilers seem to have a habit of showing up for big games like these. But the Red Wings are a killer force this year, just like they are every year. They had a slow start to the season, but they seem to have found their game. The Oilers are definitely catching them at a bad time. Not that there is necessarily a good time for the Oilers to catch any team.
Khabibulin will get the start tonight.
