PRE-GAME

So the Oil invite the Sharks into their territory for the first time this year. The Oilers are coming off a tough 4-2 loss to Minnesota… one that somehow slipped away, mostly due to a bad start to the game. I’ll be at the game again, so I’m hoping for a good one. And I think I’ll get to see a good one. I think the last game was very positive, and the team just has to take it that way and not get down on themselves and just do what they did Thursday… except maybe keep things more simple on the powerplay.

I’ll guess 5-4 Oilers.

PRE-GAME RANT

With the Oilers all but guaranteed to pick 1 or 2 now, things feel a bit more loose in Oiler-land. No more cheering for losses by anyone from this point forward. They currently sit 13 points behind the Leafs with only 11 games left to play. They’re finishing dead last. An interesting stat I heard last game is that in three of the 4 drafts since the lottery pick was instituted, the last place team has picked first overall. So the odds are in our favor to get who we want. From this point forward, let’s just hope for some exciting hockey that shows promise for next year.

The Oilers face the Sharks possibly at the right time. They’ve lost their last 4 outings. Nabokov has struggled since coming back from the Olympics (and consequently is ruining my pool numbers). The Oilers are coming off a tough win vs. the Red Wings on Friday in which they were unable to hold a 2-0 lead and were forced to go to the shootout.

Prediction: I will regret dressing Nabokov in the Yahoo pool…. 4-2 Oilers.

PRE-GAME RANT

The Oilers are coming off a heartbreaker vs. the Penguins on Thursday. After getting a 2-0 lead in the 2nd period, the Oilers struggled to contain the Staal line. Staal assisted on all 3 goals for the Penguins, who went on to win the game 3-2. The Oilers now sit at 1-12-1 in their last 14. Their last win was vs. Toronto back on December 30th. The Olympic torch was in Rexall place on Thursday night, and Quinn helped limp it down there. It must have been hard as hell not to burn the mother(bleep)er down, the way the season is going.

As for the Sharks, they sit at the top of the heap, tied for 1st with Chicago. The Sharks lost the last one in a shootout versus the Bruins, but are 7-2-1 in their last 10. This is the 3rd meeting of the two teams this season, and second of January. The Sharks won both games. The first game was on November 27th, and was a 5-4 loss, and the second was January 2nd, a 4-1 loss.

I think given the way the Oilers last game went, they could come out with a good game, however I don’t think afternoon games are their forte these days. So, prediction time…

Heart says: 4-3 Oilers
Brain says: 6-3 Sharks

Well, the Oilers head into a new year, and they’ll be thankful to put 2009 behind them. The playoff chance calculator has them at a 0.4% chance of making the playoffs. And as Dustin Penner would remind us, Lloyd Christmas once said “so you’re saying there’s a chance!!” (for those that missed it: Penner on not making Canada: “Like my friend Lloyd Christmas said, what was all this 1 in a million talk?”).

Anyways, the Oilers are coming off a 2-1 loss vs. the Flames yesterday in which Jeff Deslauriers stood on his head to keep the score from being completely out of hand (I’m sure many of you skipped this one, and you were smart to). They’ve lost 8 of their last 9 now. The Sharks, meanwhile have won 7 straight. So hi, uhm.. free spot on the bingo card.

Here are my predictions:

Brain says: Sharks 6, Oilers 2
