PRE-GAME RANT

We’re going streaking!!! 3 in a row is officially a streak right? And the kind we actually want this time.

The boys will be in tough tonight to keep that momentum rolling against a very talented Hawks team. They are 7-2-1 in their last 10 and we have 7 wins through the entire season. Aside from a tough opponent, the team has been off since Thursday. A nice break to heal some wounds but when you finally start hitting your stride you don’t want to sit at home on the couch. Ideally we come out focused and don’t have the rust of 3 days to shake off. Don’t expect any shutouts tonight as the last time these 2 met 9 goals were tallied collectively.

Dubnyk was named the 3rd star of the week and the team has averaged 5 goals per game over the modest streak. If the back end is stopping while the top guys are popping, therein is a recipe for success.

Eakins has said previously why mess with the lines when things are working, so tonight’s lines remain unchanged. Dubnyk gets the start as well. Bryzgalov will likely get his first start as on Oiler on Thursday or Friday with back to back games against Nashville and Columbus.

PRE-GAME RANT

Oh boy, two teams headed in different directions. Hawks are 8-2 in the last 10, and the Oil are the opposite… Time to turn things around. Well, that would have been 4 or 5 games ago, so we’re far passed time to turn it around. Game 3 of the season that these two teams face off, with the Oilers winning the last contest a lopsided 9-2. Hopefully there are no hard feelings.

Dubnyk slots in tonight and Teemu Hartikainen has been recalled with Petrell going down to make room for the move. I really liked what I saw from Teemu last year. Hopefully he injects some enthusiasm into the line up that will kick start this young squad back to the right side of winning. Jones has skated with the team as well after leaving late after a blocked shot in the Isles game.

PRE-GAME

The Oil head back into the united center tonight for another match against the Chicago Blackhawks. Last time they were there (Oct. 29), things went very well for the Oilers, as they won 7-4 in a pretty wild game, where they pretty much dominated the Hawks. Khabibulin also played a pretty solid game as well. The Oilers weren’t perfect, but when most people (myself included) were predicting an ugly loss to the Hawks, you’ll take an imperfect win. Especially one where we put on our best offensive showing of the season.

Last game vs. Chicago, the Oilers saw 2-point performance from each of the young kids, plus the grizzly old veteran – Sam Gagner. Will we see that again tonight?

Prediction: Hawks wake up this time and get the better of us in a 4-3 game.
