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
