PRE-GAME RANT

Oilers. Wild. 2 more games to go (including this one). Then the next thing we can be excited for is the draft lottery results which take place on April 12th. I had no idea it was that soon, but I just got an e-mail from the Oilers, stating it to be true.

Anyways, I don’t predict tonight’s game to have any excitement too it, therefore you get a pretty lame pre-game rant.

Prediction: 3-0 Wild

VERY GUESSTIMATED LINES

PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight, the Oiler pictured above returns to the lineup – Gilbert Brule. Colin Fraser is out (foot). I expect a tough game tonight for the Oilers, even though the Wild are on a slump of their own (2-7-1 in the last 10). The Oilers haven’t won a game since March 5th, which makes that 10 straight games without a win (0-7-3). Yikes.

In other news not specific to the game, the Oilers have signed UNB LWer Hunter Tremblay. I’d expect that to be depth for the Barons. The Fourth Period has the photo shoot of Taylor Hall up here.

The Wild have won all the matches between these two teams so far this season (four). Why stop now? And in case you were worried that the 30th place spot was in jeopardy at all, Khabibulin gets the start.

Prediction: 5-1 Wild

VERY GUESSTIMATED LINES

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are fresh off a thrilling 5-3 victory over the Thrashers in which the Oilers battled back from a 3-1 deficit. The Oilers got some life on their powerplay finally (including a 5-on-3 goal.. at long last) thanks in part to Taylor Hall’s first career hattrick. All 3 were scored on the powerplay, in the same period, and unanswered. Hemsky put the final nail in the coffin with an empty net goal. Tonight the Oilers head into enemy territory and face a team that they’ve struggled with for a while now, especially in their building. The Oilers are 0-3 this year too against the Wild.

Will the Oilers continue to ride the high?

Prediction: 4-2 Wild

PRE-GAME RANT

Oilers seem to have 3 scoring lines going these days, with not all lines firing at once. Who will be the hot line tonight? We’ll have to wait and see. However the Paajarvi-Gagner-Omark line was magic against the Ducks. Hopefully they can keep that going, as both Paajarvi and Omark need a boost in confidence. The Oilers are in every game, but their record hasn’t been very good recently. They’ve only won 2 of their last 10, although one of those wins was a very impressive performance against a much better Sharks team. The wild are 6-4-0 in that time frame.

Prediction: I think the Oilers can win this one. I’ll guess 5-2 Edmonton. Am I ever right on these things? My record is definitely far worse than the Oilers’ record.

PRE-GAME

Well, we meet again. The Wild are in town tonight after chasing Bobby Lou from the net on Tuesday with a 6-2 beatdown of the Canucks. Aside from some line juggling, the thing to watch tonight will be the faceoff dot. The Oilers have struggled greatly so far in this young season and currently sit 29th. The Oilers were also lit up in Minnesota by the Wild’s powerplay and they did the same to Vancouver so one of tonight’s big keys will to be stay out of the box.
