PRE-GAME RANT

Hooray, HNIC on a Thursday! Too bad I’ll be playing walleyball… The Habs are in town tonight for a warm up match before playing the “Heritage Classic” down in cowtown on Sunday. The Oilers have taken the previous and only other game this season in Montreal, but needed a shootout to finish it. The Habs have cooled off and are nursing a few injuries, so hopefully we get the same effort we did on Monday and the boys impress. Horcoff had a big 3 point night to lead the team, time for another speech?

PRE-GAME RANT

For many years since I was old enough to watch hockey, I was an Oilers fan first and a Habs fan second. So I’ve followed these guys for years and years as a second favorite team. That said, I’m hoping the Oilers spank them tonight. But I don’t think it will be an easy task the way Price has been playing (he will get the start tonight).

Some roster changes tonight for the Oilers. Gerber has been returned back to Oklahoma City as Khabibulin will come off the IR. Hemsky also makes his triumphant return to the lineup tonight (woohoo) and will play with Gagner and Paajarvi. I like that, because right now Penner, Cogliano and Brule are flying… you don’t want to break up a good thing, especially since Cogliano and Brule were slumping big time before. I hope that Paajarvi can be worked out of a scoring slump of his own, playing with Gagner and Hemsky.

Prediction: 3-1 Oilers

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, so far we’ve got the Habs number this season, although we’ve only played them once…  It was way back on October 10th, when the Oil were healthy and the fans were excited.  A 3-2 win for the home team.  My oh my how the times have changed.  We’re heading into Montreal to play against a team that appears to be coming together at the right time for a playoff push.  Winners of 4 of their last 5, they’re probably looking forward to this match up more than we are.  This is Montreal’s last game against a Western opponent, so their playoff chances look good.  In the pipes Deslauriers has looked a lot more comfortable lately, but some of my dodgy sources are reporting Dubnyk will get the start tonight.  For the Oil, Minard has been called up and will likely see some action as Moreau is questionable, and O’Sullivan is hanging out at home.

PRE-GAME RANT

As usual, please feel free to use this GDT to comment on the game before the game, during the game or after the game.

Sounds like Sheldon Souray is out (still suffering the effects of being slammed into the end boards by Jarome Iginla while chasing after a puck), but Steve Staios is in. Jim Matheson has a good write-up in the Edmonton Journal about Iginla taking Souray into the boards on Thursday.

The Canadiens are coming off a huge 7-1 loss to the Canucks. Look for them to try and redeem themselves with a better compete level tonight.

Here are the projected line-ups for tonight: Continue reading 'GDT – Oilers 3, Canadiens 2 – Oct 10, 2009 – Game 4'»
