OK, so we finally lived up to our end of the Battle of Alberta for the last match up with Calgary, and Calgary no-showed. Leaves me curious as to which team will no-show tonight… or will we finally have a real Battle of Alberta?
Teemu Hartikainen will draw in tongiht, taking Linus Omark out of the lineup. Ben Eager skated today, but he isn’t ready to go yet… maybe Sunday he will play.
Doobie gets the start, after a shutout in his last game. According to Oilers Nation, “Flames people” (I presume that means media and/or fans) are predicting a start by Leland Irving in net for the Flames. That probably doesn’t bode well for us, as I always have thought that we stink it up against the “back ups”. But hey, who knows.
OILERS LINES (projected)
Jones – Nugent-Hopkins – Eberle
Hall – Gagner – Hemsky
Smyth – Horcoff – Hartikainen
Hordichuk – Belanger – Petrell
Smid – Petry
Whitney – Schultz
Peckham – Potter
