Bits And Pieces - Oilers @ Maple Leafs Preview

Edmonton tries to make it three in a row tonight at the Air Canada Centre versus the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Three in a row.  All Eastern Conference opponents.  All on the road.  Sentence fragments.

Three in a row. Book it. Maybe.

Edmonton Oilers @ Toronto Maple Leafs – Game 25

Things to look for:

  • Changes, Bowie style.  Ales Hemsky will be scratched from the lineup tonight, and Nikolai Khabulin is back from his groin injury.  Hemsky appeared to have re-aggravated his groin injury after last night’s spectacular performance.   As far as Khabibulin goes, I can’t imagine the last time the Oilers (or any other team for that matter) won three consecutive games with three different netminders.  Let’s bow our heads and hope that Khabibulin can steer this ship out of the first period.

  • Arbitration castoff Clarke MacArthur currently leads the Maple Leafs with eighteen points (7G-11A) in 23 games.  Not bad for a guy who was making a whisker more than league minimum a while ago in Buffalo.
  • Anxious to see if Renney keeps the 91/89 together. Hemsky was a large part of that line last night and although we won’t likely see him tonight, here’s hoping Speed Kills once again.
  • Edmonton has come from behind in both games on this Eastern Conference swing so far.  Look (hopefully) for them to jump on the score sheet first tonight.  Bring back a three game streak to Alberta, so that we may admire greatly the 9-12-4 record that which could be attained.

Stay out of the box.  Now get out there and win.
