PRE-GAME

Despite finishing in the basement last season, the Oilers took 3 of 4 meetings against the Wings. Motor City will probably enjoy their trip to Oil Country this time around though. The Red Wings (7-2-1) are playing great hockey right now so it will a tough game for the Oilers (3-5-2) to pull out, so if we’re going 3 of 4 this year, I expect tonight might be that loss. The Oil showed some great fight last game after giving up an early lead, but no way can we go down 3-0 and expect to win games. A strong first period will be the key to any success tonight.

Datsyuk will be a player to watch tonight. He’s had a solid start and has 8 points in his last 6 games. Our boy Ebs is trying to keep up with 6 points in his last 7.

Prediction: Heartache…

PRE-GAME RANT

After losing to St. Louis, on Sunday, the Oilers are now one point away from sealing up 30th place. That means that if the Leafs gain one point in their final six games or the Oilers do not completely run the table, the Oilers will be guaranteed dead last in the league. We now sit 14 points behind 29th place Toronto (jebus), and there are only 14 points available since we have 7 games remaining in the season. Not that there was any doubt, but this should really put everyone’s mind at ease that even if we do run the table, chances are we’re going to get one of the top 2 picks.

So, the Oil are currently cold, having lost their last 2. The Red Wings are red hot, with 5 straight wins. Their last lost happened to be at the hands of the mighty Edmonton Oilers in the shootout on March 19th. Could the Oil surprise again?

Prediction: Reality sets in.. 5-2 Red Wings, Oilers officially hit rock bottom and seal 30th.

PRE-GAME RANT

If a team falls in the standings and there is no one around to watch it, are we better off? I think so. I’ll probably watch the game though, being the die hard I am. But my game watching routine has gone from watching like a hawk at every play, and doing a lot of rewinding/replaying to having it on in the background while I do something else. Can we watch Eberle and the Falcons somehow? Perhaps that internet link that’s always floating around…

Anyways, enough of that tone. I’ll hope for wins from here on out. I demand entertainment. The #1 pick overall (lottery pick aside) has pretty much been settled. The Oilers are currently 13 points behind the Leafs with a mere 12 games left (the Oil do have a game in hand, to note). I can’t see them getting 13 goals in that time period, let alone 13 wins.. so it should be sealed. But nonetheless, I’d like to start seeing some wins here and a glimmer of hope for next year.

Prediction? Pierre McGuire will crush on Theo Peckham tonight, James Duthie will say something monumentally funny that the whole panel will laugh at and Craig MacTavish will feel sorry for the Oilers.
