PRE-GAME RANT

The new look Oilers will have another new look today. Notable roster slots to fill include Hall (knee – 4 weeks) and Smyth (groin – 1 week). In response the team has called up Pitlick and Eager. Hall’s offence is hard to replace so in an effort to get the Yak attack going, he’ll be on a line with Eberle and RNH. Eberle strained his hip slightly on Saturday, but says he’s good to go today.  There won’t be any better opportunities for guys like Jones to prove themselves like there is over the next month or so.  He used to have the versatility to play on different lines with different roles.  I still think it has to do with the haircut, but I’m rooting for him.

MacTavish cited Gazdic’s play, the desire to call up Pitlick, and the number of contracts on the books as contributors to moving Mr. Brown and his moustache. Someone should tell him the princess is in another castle and give him a map of San Jose. It’s never easy to be traded, but moving to California on the cusp of an Edmonton winter and going to a top contender probably ease the pain just a little bit. Good luck to you Mike. This gives the team a little more flexibility in bringing in someone to fill another need. D-Man that could play 30 tough minutes would be nice, or maybe a proven tender. Dubs has been better of late though.

Tonight`s game is in Montreal. A town full of hockey zealots with a lot of history and pride. It`s not an easy house to walk into and leave with a win, so expect the boys will be in tough tonight. The Habs likely sympathize with the Oilers on the injury front as they are without Briere and just lost Prust as well after an awkward fall into the end boards to name a few of many.

After Dubnyk`s recent elevated play and earning the win last game I expect he`ll get the start again tonight, but Eakins has surprised me before so if I hear anything more official, I`ll update the projected lines below.

Last but not least, a big congrats to Anton Lander, the latest captain of the OKC Barons. Continue reading 'W – Oilers 4, Canadiens 2 – Game 10 – 2013-10-22 @ 5:30 PM MST – SNETW'»

PRE-GAME RANT

Montreal is in town which means half of the usual Oiler fans will transform into Les Habitants tonight.  In games like this where the crowd is split it’s good to get on the board early to silence the away faction.  Montreal is sitting at 1-2-0 as are the Oilers, so both will be hungry for the win.  Oilers have some momentum after an exciting 3rd period offensive outburst against the Devils on Monday night.  Tonight’s plan should be to have the scoreboard read 3rd period from the get go.  The boys need to come out flying and take it to the Habs.  That and maybe play RNH for 40 minutes tonight.

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
