PRE-GAME RANT

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.

Monday Morning Standings

Yeah yeah, Friday again…although to be fair I actually thought it was Thursday today for the longest time (which yes, does make it better).

Oil News

– Everyone should be back healthy soon just in time to continue to suck. But this is good as I have tickets to the Detroit game Saturday.
– Except Gagner, not sure if anyone saw that. He had a decent game against the Blackhawks.

Wayne Gretzky… Paul Coffey……. Sam Gagner…

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.
