I’ve got a small bet on this one that the Oilers will win this game. It is a really small bet, but it’s for bragging rights, really, which is a BIG deal. I sure as hell hope the Oilers can pull this off. They’re generally better against the good teams. With Jimmy Howard out with a broken finger, the Oilers might stand more of a chance too, although backups often kill us, as do former Oilers… so former Oiler backups can’t be good to face… Conklin should play tonight too.
The Nuge returns to action tonight. He apparently will center Horcoff and Hemsky, per Gene Principe.
Dubnyk starts again tonight, as per Renney’s “win and your in” strategy.
