PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers will be without Taylor Hall tonight. Speculation is that he’s re-injured his shoulder. Linus Omark has been recalled from Oklahoma City. The media seems to have caught wind that this is game number 4 in 4 nights for Omark (should he play). So I’m not so sure that Omark will just slot into Hall’s spot on the top line, but that’s where I’ve penciled him in until I hear otherwise.

No word on goaltending yet either, but I assume Dubnyk starts.

Sorry, not a lot of info for this GDT just yet. Will update if I find out anything else.

Edit: Sounds like Hall will play tonight, as he’s been cleared to play (should we be worried?). Also, Khabibulin gets the start tonight. Omark might still play. If he does, my guess is that he’ll slot in with Nugent-Hopkins and Eberle, and perhaps Petrell bumps down to Hordi’s spot (who would sit). This is just me guessing though.

PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight is Andrew Cogliano’s first game back at Rexall Place as an Anaheim Duck. I liked him here, but you never know what fans will do when players return. Could be some boos in there… maybe the odd applause. But I’m betting for more of the former.

There aren’t many teams worse than the Oilers, but as luck would have it, the Ducks are one of them. That means the Oilers should play pretty awful tonight :P I’ll be rooting the team on live at the game tonight. Hopefully it’s a good one. The Ducks are only 3-10-6 on the road while the Oilers are 10-6-3, so it SHOULD be a good one for us. But you never know.

Nikolai Khabibulin gets the nod in net tonight. Josh Green was recalled and will play wing with Ben Eager and Ryan O’Marra (who is OK to play now, after being sick for the last game).

PRE-GAME RANT

First off… reminder.. OIL CHANGE TONIGHT!! It is at 5:00PM MST, so set your PVRs.

Anyways, tonight the Oilers host the Ducks in the fourth and final match-up of these two teams for the 2010/11 season. The Oilers are 1-1-1 in the series, with the last game being a 3-2 Ducks win last month. You have to figure Dubnyk will get the start today in a back-to-back, especially after Khabibulin crapped himself in the last game from the get-go. Tencer had a strange tweet early this morning though that worries me: “Khabibulin tomorrow, looking to snap his 13 game losing streak.” Does that mean he’s starting again? If so, you can only figure that they’re really trying to ensure a last place finish. Just saying. Khabibulin still says he has his confidence, but we know he’s long lost fan confidence. Anyways, I’m interested in who they play. Really they should be trying to develop Dubnyk.

Edit: It is indeed going to be Dubnyk.

As for Oil Change, we will get some taste of the Oklahoma City Barons… so that should be interesting.

Prediction: 5-2 Ducks

PRE-GAME RANT

And we are livvvvvee and back in business!!! Thank god. Today was a horrible day for me, as my work had a major upgrade done last night. It was expected to go nice and smoothly, but I woke up to find out that someone forgot to do one small thing… 8+ hours of overtime later, here I am, to write the GDT. Then add to that, I still had to go out and shovel, but that went rather quick and was a welcome change from what I was doing all day today for work.

Anyways, the Oil head into Anaheim tonight. I suspect the line-up will be much of the same, although I presume we’ll see Khabibulin tonight.

Prediction: 4-3 SO win for Edmonton

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers will attempt a different drive for 5 this year (credit to Trogdor on that one) as they attempt 5 wins in a row. They face the Ducks, whom they’ve already beaten once this year.

As mentioned in the Omark/Nomark thread, there is a rumor floating around (take it with a grain of salt though since it came from what I guess is just a forum user) that the Oilers have put in a claim for Todd White. This makes sense as to why no one has been called up (Todd Nelson claims he hasn’t been approached about a call up either). I don’t expect any roster changes for this game, however.

EDIT: This rumor isn’t true. Todd White cleared waivers today.

I’m calling a win for tonight… #5.

Oilers 5, Ducks 2
