GDT - Edmonton Oilers vs. Minnesota Wild

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, they’ve done it again… they’ve pulled off another win with a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday. After a month of no wins, it is nice for the “faithful” fans at Rexall to witness what a win is like (the last win previous to these two was December 30th against the Leafs at Rexall Place). So the Oilers are 2-7-1 in their last 10. The Wild, meanwhile, have lost their last 2 (5-2 to San Jose on Saturday and 4-2 to the Stars on Tuesday) and are 4-5-1 in their last 10.

I’d like to see the top line become Penner, Gagner and Brule again tonight, although I’m doubtful that will happen. I also wonder if we’ll see the two Doobies battle it out in net tonight, as both Harding and Backstrom are injured for the Wild. Harding backed up Dubielewicz for the last Wild game, but he’s nursing a hip injury. Since Deslauriers played last night and looked scary at times (despite the shutout), I would think that Dubnyk would get the nod. We shall see.

Since this game is in Minnesota tonight and we generally like to struggle there, from what I recall, I’ll say: 2-1 Minnesota.

PRE-GAME RANT

Hey everyone!  How are we all doing on this fine day.  It is my last day of work this week, and then its time to sit on my ass and do nothing.

I happened to be at the last game (row 6!) and, well, the team sucked.  It wasn’t a total waste as one of my favorite players was Winchester and he had a pretty good game, but other than that it was pretty much the suck.

I imagine this is what coyote fans feel like most of the time.

Anyways the team will win this one because now we all don’t expect it.  And thats how they roll.

Oh, and canada keeps winning at the juniors.  I noticed a couple of our picks playing for finland (I think) and they looked decent, as did Eberle, so things are looking up!

And just say no to tanking.  As I mentioned in the comments in the last post (and to Samus), you don’t need to tank and draft well to get good, just look at the ’06 team (and the number of rookies on it).  Cheap, reliable vets.

Anyways, here are you daily dose of Racki-stats:

PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight’s game is a 7:00 start and on PPV. The Oilers are coming off a 4-3 loss in which they were schooled by the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday. The score didn’t tell the story of the game. Thankfully Khabibulin was fairly decent in net or it could have been a lot worse. The Wild are also coming off of a loss, having lost 3-2 to the Ducks on Wednesday.

I’ll be missing this one, so I won’t be able to get in a post game rant (unless I catch the highlights later). It’s too bad, because I predict another good game for the Oilers. I’ll predict a 5-2 win for the Oil.

The lines are likely to change, but here’s where they stand so far, until I hear something else (if anyone hears anything, please feel free to update in the comments). Continue reading 'GDT – Oilers 5, Wild 2 – Oct 16, 2009 – Game 7'»
