Tonight is Andrew Cogliano’s first game back at Rexall Place as an Anaheim Duck. I liked him here, but you never know what fans will do when players return. Could be some boos in there… maybe the odd applause. But I’m betting for more of the former.
There aren’t many teams worse than the Oilers, but as luck would have it, the Ducks are one of them. That means the Oilers should play pretty awful tonight I’ll be rooting the team on live at the game tonight. Hopefully it’s a good one. The Ducks are only 3-10-6 on the road while the Oilers are 10-6-3, so it SHOULD be a good one for us. But you never know.
Nikolai Khabibulin gets the nod in net tonight. Josh Green was recalled and will play wing with Ben Eager and Ryan O’Marra (who is OK to play now, after being sick for the last game).
