The three Oilers record holders

The three Oilers record holders

Sam Gagner made history tonight tying a record once held by two former Oiler greats Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey. Sam Gagner scored 4 goals and 4 assists tonight for an unreal 8 point performance. He even fittingly earned 1st, 2nd and 3rd star at Rexall… something I’ve never heard before. Fantastic friggen game.

You people who have come to the Foil have always known how much I liked Gagner and support him, but this is superhumanly good. Teams are going to be knocking down the door to trade for him, which is kind of unfortunate. I really never wanted to see him go, so I hope Steve Tambellini has the brains to hang on to him (save for a huge trade that brings us a glorious defenseman). However, you know that this will fuel the trade talk a little bit more… it’s just one game… but it’s also one hell of a game that we haven’t seen in more than 2 decades in any arena.

PRE-GAME RANT

So the Oilers haven’t been terrible against the Blackhawks this year. In fact, they have 2 wins, and I’m sure many of you (if not all) remember that the Oil demolished the Hawks 9-2 in one of those games (back on November 19). Hopefully the Oilers can win another one tonight and keep this short but good run alive.

Dubnyk will get the start tonight, as part of Tom Renney’s new “win and you’re in” strategy/motivation tactic.

No lineup changes tonight, per Jason Gregor.
