The Oilers lumber to Anaheim looking for an elusive two-point cocktail known as a win.

Let’s get into it.

We Want Two! Points!

Edmonton Oilers @ Mighty Ducks Of Anaheim Ducks – Game 19

21 NOV 2010 – 6:00 MST / 8:00 EST

Things to look for:

  • Line change – Per Tom Gazzola tweets, Gilbert Brule is back in the lineup for the Oilers, Jones will be on line 3 with Cogliano.  Paajarvi will be wing it on line 4 with Colin Fraser.  Stortini will sit.  Teemu Selanne looks to be a  no-go tonight for the Ducks.  Catch your breath.

  • Can the Oilers build on the promise of last game versus Phoenix?  No, they didn’t take two points in that game either, but the result was much more palpable than say, an 8-2 bludgeoning.  Dubnyk needs to ride the wave of solid play, and it sure would be nice to open the scoring and keep the lead.  I can wish.
  • Corey Perry currently leads the Ducks with 23 points (10G-13A) in 22 games.
  • Other things that need to keep working:  The PK unit gets a star for their ability to turn a five minute PK into a goal and a kill.  Still, a PP goal was given up on a minor penalty later in the game.  I’m going all out and predicting that the Oilers will not allow a PP goal.  Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.  It’s going to happen tonight.  I can feel it.

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS.
