Olivier Roy backs up Dubnyk tonight

Olivier Roy backs up Dubnyk tonight

Tonight the Oilers head in to Calgary to play the 2nd half of their back to back with the Flames. Last night’s event was positive. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins recorded another assist after spinning off the boards near the blueline, cutting to the center of the ice and shooting it on net, where hall swept home the rebound. Khabibulin played a very strong 60 minutes. Maybe you might say 59 minutes and 55 ish seconds. The goal he allowed was one that he shouldn’t have allowed. It was a shot from the high point, through traffic that was at the high point. Other than that, he was solid.

More bad news on the injury front. Sam Gagner was driven hard into the end boards by Brendan Mikkelson. Gagner laid on the ice for a few seconds then got to a knee and was in obvious pain. He is day-to-day. The Edmonton Journal says that he took a puck in the ankle on the play, but I’m not seeing it. Pretty sure the impact of the boards did the damage.

Looks like the Oilers are going with a fairly weak lineup for this one (although I think our top line in this game could end up being a real 3rd line for the team). The Flames have dressed a decent line up, but still some key players missing from their roster.

Tonight we see Andy Sutton in an Oil uni for the first time

Tonight we see Andy Sutton in an Oil uni for the first time

The Oilers will host the Flames tonight. This one will be webcast on the Oilers website and is a 6PM MST start.

This will be our first chance at seeing the big man Andy Sutton. He’s going to line up with Tom Gilbert and hopefully provide a physical presence to match Gilbert’s more positional and offensive nature. The d-pairings are pretty interesting across the board, actually. Camp invitee Kirill Tulupov is playing the right side with new-comer Cam Barker. Theo Peckham and Jeff Petry will suit up together. It’s not often that we actually have a legit RHD (right-handed defenseman) paired with a legit LHD or a physical/defensive defenseman paired with a offensive-minded defenseman, but tonight we’ve got both.

Khabibulin is going to get the nod tonight. Hopefully he can find his legs.

Some much more exciting news though Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 2, Flames 1 – Pre-season Game 4 – 2011-09-24 @ 6:00 PM MST – Webcast'»

PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight is as big of a “playoff” game as we’ll get to see this year. Winning this game would put the final nail in the coffin of the Calgary Flames’ playoff hopes. Wouldn’t that be nice? The Oilers are in a little danger of passing the Avalanche, but they’d have to run the table and the Avalanche would have to lose all their remaining games in regulation time. Each team has 3 games left. I think we’re pretty safe here, especially with the Wild coming up later. Although, we do play the Avalanche as one of our final 3… so that will be a very important game.

Anyways, I’m really hoping for a win tonight, so I’m going to send some good vibes with my prediction. Plus Alan-NottsUK will be at the game, and he’s money (currently seen 3 Oil games live and we’ve won all 3).

Prediction: 5-1 Oilers, if Dubnyk starts again. 5-4 if Khabi starts. :P

VERY GUESSTIMATED LINES

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers have a chance to put another nail in the coffin of the Calgary Flames’ playoff hopes. That would be nice to see. The Flames are two points behind the playoff cut right now, but they’ve played 76 games and most teams have played 73 or 74. If our AHL team is going to win one in the remaining 8 games, this is the one.

That said, I don’t see it happening. Although we do have some nice new lines tonight! (thanks to Dawgtoy for relaying that).

Prediction: 5-1 Flames

PRE-GAME RANT

Happy new year, everyone! Battle of Alberta time again. Sounds like the fucking Winter Classic is going to cut into this game. If I understood Elliotte Friedman right, if the Winter Classic is all sorts of awesome, they’ll continue to show that and cut into the Oilers game.

Shawn Belle should play tonight, as he was called up yesterday. Best guess, I think he’ll play with his AHL partner, Jeff Petry. This will leave the other pairings intact.

The Flames currently lead the series with one regulation win, one shootout win, and one loss. I am thinking that the Oilers, as battered as they are, are going to give this one their all. Will it be enough? The Flames are on a 3-game winning streak right now.

I’ll go with the brain/heart prediction on this one. Brain says 5-2 Flames. Heart says 4-2 Oilers.
