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.
Taylor Hall – Shawn Horcoff – Ales Hemsky
Philippe Cornet – Sam Gagner – Jordan Eberle
Ryan Smyth – Eric Belanger – Ryan Jones
Ben Eager – Anton Lander – Lennart Petrell
Ladislav Smid – Jeff Petry
Ryan Whitney – Corey Potter
Andy Sutton – Cam Barker
