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
