Things to look for
- Martin Gerber gets his second start in three games. Gerber had an excellent Oilers debut against the Avalanche, let’s hope it continues tonight in the nation’s Capital.
- Although close to playing, Ales Hemsky is reported not to be dressed for tonight’s game.
- The Oilers will be looking to put the clampdown on Daniel Alfredsson, who leads the Senators with 18 points (8G-10A) in 22 games. So is the story with Oilers defenceman Ryan Whitney who has 18 assists.
- Jordan Eberle returns for the first time to the rink where the magic of the 2009 Junior Hockey Championships occurred. Eberle is third on the team with 14 points.
- Hey, the usual. I’m convinced that if the Oilers can go a game without yielding a powerplay goal, they’ll find themselves an extra two points in the standings. Rather, just don’t take a penalty other than a fighting major. KEYS TO VICTORY!
- Colin Fraser. I got a good feeling about him tonight.
I got started early today, so here’s a music video to tide you over.

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS
