So tonight the Oilers face the Maple Leafs. The Oilers are pretty hot as of late, having earned 9 out of a possible 10 points in their last 5 games. The same can be said of the Leafs, themselves, who are on a streak of their own as they try to make the playoffs for the first time under the new CBA. Currently they sit in 8th, but are barely clinging on for dear life. If all is right in the world, the Leafs will miss the playoffs again. But I almost pity the team.
Good news on the Oilers front.. Tom Gilbert returns! And yet again, thanks to the win and your in policy, Devan Dubnyk gets the nod in net. Good for him! The Oilers will also continue to play Gagner with Hall and Eberle, so fantastic news for any of you folks (myself included) lucky enough to have him in a hockey pool.
