Bits And Pieces - Oilers @ Coyotes Preview


Fresh off a victory against Anaheim, the Oilers will try to make it two in a row against a Phoenix team with six consecutive victories.

Two wins is a streak.

Edmonton Oilers @ Phoenix Coyotes – Game 20

23 NOV 2010 – 7:00 MST / 9:00 EST

Visit Howlin’ Hockey on the Fansided Network

Things to look for:

  • Someone ought to get a body on Ray Whitney – he had assists on all three Coyote goals last week in Edmonton.  Whitney still leads the Coyotes with 14 points.
  • Devan Dubnyk is slated for his second consecutive start.  Solid in net on Sunday, he stopped 38 of 40 Anaheim shots for the win.
  • The Coyotes are on a six game winning streak – Edmonton will look to net their second win in a row.
  • Ladislav Smid is not quite ready to be back in the lineup, although he was skating earlier in the day at Jobing.com Arena.  Smid is still recovering from a concussion sustained in New York Sunday before last.

Tall order for the Oilers tonight.  Going to need another solid performance out of Devan Dubnyk.

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS.
