The original "The Nuge"

The original "The Nuge"

Tonight is an exciting night for “the Nuge”. It was originally reported that he was playing with Hemsky and Smyth tonight, but it turns out he’ll be playing with what is possibly going to be the line of the Oilers future one day. The bookends for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tonight will be none other than Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. This should make for a very exciting, dynamic trio. It would seem that RNH is a very responsible forward. I think Taylor Hall has a tendency to try to back check hard as well too. It’s hard not to think that these guys will get killed against most teams’ top lines, but now is the time to give it a test.

Smyth and Hemsky will be centered tonight by Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 3, Coyotes 2 – Pre-season Game 6 – 2011-09-27 @ 7:00 PM MST – Webcast'»

Olivier Roy backs up Dubnyk tonight

Olivier Roy backs up Dubnyk tonight

Tonight the Oilers head in to Calgary to play the 2nd half of their back to back with the Flames. Last night’s event was positive. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins recorded another assist after spinning off the boards near the blueline, cutting to the center of the ice and shooting it on net, where hall swept home the rebound. Khabibulin played a very strong 60 minutes. Maybe you might say 59 minutes and 55 ish seconds. The goal he allowed was one that he shouldn’t have allowed. It was a shot from the high point, through traffic that was at the high point. Other than that, he was solid.

More bad news on the injury front. Sam Gagner was driven hard into the end boards by Brendan Mikkelson. Gagner laid on the ice for a few seconds then got to a knee and was in obvious pain. He is day-to-day. The Edmonton Journal says that he took a puck in the ankle on the play, but I’m not seeing it. Pretty sure the impact of the boards did the damage.

Looks like the Oilers are going with a fairly weak lineup for this one (although I think our top line in this game could end up being a real 3rd line for the team). The Flames have dressed a decent line up, but still some key players missing from their roster.

Tonight we see Andy Sutton in an Oil uni for the first time

Tonight we see Andy Sutton in an Oil uni for the first time

The Oilers will host the Flames tonight. This one will be webcast on the Oilers website and is a 6PM MST start.

This will be our first chance at seeing the big man Andy Sutton. He’s going to line up with Tom Gilbert and hopefully provide a physical presence to match Gilbert’s more positional and offensive nature. The d-pairings are pretty interesting across the board, actually. Camp invitee Kirill Tulupov is playing the right side with new-comer Cam Barker. Theo Peckham and Jeff Petry will suit up together. It’s not often that we actually have a legit RHD (right-handed defenseman) paired with a legit LHD or a physical/defensive defenseman paired with a offensive-minded defenseman, but tonight we’ve got both.

Khabibulin is going to get the nod tonight. Hopefully he can find his legs.

Some much more exciting news though Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 2, Flames 1 – Pre-season Game 4 – 2011-09-24 @ 6:00 PM MST – Webcast'»
