PRE-GAME RANT

Well after a 3 game streak came crashing down to Earth on Monday night, the Oilers look to start anew tonight in Nashville. It’s the first of back to backs including a short road trip to Columbus to play tomorrow night. Nashville played the BJs last night themselves, so the Oilers will look to jump out early.

Minor shakeup to the lines tonight. Grebeshkov slots into a pairing with Justin Schultz and Potter will sit out. He’ll have company in Acton and Gazdic to make room for Arcobello and Jones.

The Bryz gets his first start as Oiler tonight too. He did see action last game against Chicago after Dubnyk watched 4 pucks bulge the twine behind him. More of a mercy pull as most of the goals were opportunistic by a very talented Blackhawks team. Bryzgalov did well in relief though, so hopefully he’s up to the task of 60 minutes tonight. Also being back to backs you had to figure Bryzgalov would play either tonight or tomorrow.

PRE-GAME RANT

Alright, the ship hasn’t been righted, but there is a blue spot in the sky amidst this storm of sorrow. It’s a very small spot, but it’s there. Coming off the heels of a victory, yes that’s right we won a game, the Oilers are playing host to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Oilers last played Saturday night against the Flames and didn’t turn up the heat until late in the game for a come from behind victory. Hopefully it’s a turning point for the team’s waning confidence but it’s the Flames… A team many predicted to finish dead last this season.

The Blue Jackets are another winnable game, but it all depends on who shows up. Exciting as 3rd period comebacks are, it’s much easier to play with a lead. I’m sure the fans would love to see a home victory. It’s been a long time. Historically we have owned them though(29-10-8) so tonight could be that home win everyone is pining for.

Bryzgalov will be in the lineup tonight sporting #80. He’ll have to settle for a front row seat tough, Dubnyk will get the start. Coach Eakins has been happy with his play of late and will roll with him until Dubs convinces him otherwise. Another familiar face will be back on the ice tonight. Justin Schultz is returning from a groin injury and will be paired with Belov.

LaBarbera was waived to make room for Bryzgalov and has cleared. Not much change to the lines from Saturday aside from Larsen rotating out to make room for Justin Schultz.
