PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight the Oil face off with the Avalanche. I think they’ll be facing Varlamov in net (Giguere is doubtful for tonight after suffering a groin injury against the Canucks). That can be good because hey, he’s a pretty mediocre goaltender. That can be bad though because the Oilers always seem to stink it up against the backups if you can call him the backup. He certainly is the less skilled goalie of the two.

Anyways, it’s pretty early yet.. no word on lines or anything. I don’t think we’ll see the Nuge back yet, since he was wearing the no-contact jersey at last check.

I’d have to figure that Dubnyk would start tonight as a mercy to Oilers fans. Khabi got jeered by fans early on after letting everything go in through the five hole. But you never know here.
