Holy mother of all forehead zippers, Hall. That thing is nasty. Corey Potter just aged him 10 years by receding his hairline back a fair bit. That thing is going to leave a beauty scar. The ladies will give him some sympathy love, not that he needs the help. Hall will definitely miss this one, but he was quoted as saying: “I’m feeling better. I’d like to thank our trainers & the Columbus medical staff.” He also convinced (not verbally) the rest of his teammates to don buckets in pregame warm ups now.

Anyways, on the good news front, Jordan Eberle will play. Tonight. Not sure who his linemates will be, however. My best guesstimate is below.

EDIT: Official lines are up now.. Ben Eager on line 1!!! Crazy. He’s got wheels to keep up to the play though and net presence… so you just never know. Could be interesting. It sounds crazy though. It might be this year’s Toby Petersen, JFJ or Georges Laraque equivalent though.

The Oilers tackle their 3rd game in a span of 4 days tonight at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. It’s been a rough road trip for the team winning only 1 of 5 thus far, but with 2 games left they can still salvage it. They’ll be in tough against the Blues though who have responded well to the bench boss hiring of Ken Hitchcock.

The Oilers have looked much improved the last few games, but took a big hit with the loss of the Nuge for an undetermined amount of time 3-4 weeks with a left shoulder injury. Gilbert also got a rough ride from Carcillo, but being the tough bastard that he is, he took the morning skate but left early. He’s listed as day to day and will sit out for tonight’s game.

Also happening today is the World Juniors Gold Medal game!!! Continue reading 'Oilers 3, Blues 4 – Game 40 – 2012-01-05 @ 6:00 PM MST – SNET OILERS'»

After a brief road trip to the mile high city, the Oilers are back home again. The Oilers have enjoyed home ice so far this season and another win would go a long way. They could use the continuation of the win streak to further build momentum before going on the road for 6 games.

After handing the reins to Khabi early on, Dubnyk slotted in Friday night and had an impressive 40 save performance in the win. Hopefully the two can continue to make the starter role a tough decision for management with their solid play.

The Blues are playing .500 hockey right now and are struggling on the powerplay. Combined with the Oilers current success on the P/K, I’d say we have a pretty solid chance of recording another win tonight.

Alex Plante has been recalled from OKC, and should be in town with plenty of time to slot in tonight since the goon Sutton is out of the lineup.

Will post lines when something is made public, but don’t expect too much shuffling with lines that are clicking.

So the Oilers have virtually sealed up 30th place now (although I think they did it a while ago). The chances of the Oilers gaining 7 points on Ottawa or 8 points on Colorado with only 9 games left are so pathetically low that we can accept again that we will finish 30th this year. Not much to say about this one, other than it is more showcase time for the youth such as Hartikainen.

Giroux has already been sent back to OKC, now that JFJ and Fraser are back. But Foster is also out. For those that missed the last game.. he got hit pretty hard and fell awkwardly backwards banging his head (albeit helmeted) on either the ice or the boards. I suspect he probably was concussed on that play. He didn’t have his legs at all when they were helping him off the ice. I can say he has been whipping boy #1 for me all year, but I hate to see anyone get badly hurt, so I hope he’ll be OK soon. He’s already had his one scary bad injury in his career.

Anyways, predicting another loss here…
3-1 St. Louis

Aside from the hiccup in Minny, the Oilers have been playing a much better brand of hockey over their last 5 games. The Blues have been struggling in their playoff push and are without Halak who is currently on IR. Ex Oiler Conklin will likely be between the pipes tonight but not much of our roster will know him personally from the days of yore.

Speaking of tenders, Gerber has been called up as Khabibulin has sustained an eye injury. Police are still trying to determine if it was Larry, Curly or Moe who administered the eye gouge. I guess he’ll be sitting with Chorney who also left last game after injuring his knee.

Hall and Eberle continue their hot streaks so keep an eye on them tonight. They are the future of the team, so hot or not, all eyes are on them anyway.

Prediction: Winter will be cold again next year.
