Oilers Looking For What Is Known In Some Circles As A "Streak"


Edmonton looks to string two consecutive victories together with a victory tonight.

The opponent?  Montréal.

Hope Khabibulin’s good and limber.

And here we go…

  • Nikolai Khabibulin turned in a solid performance against the Stars on Tuesday night.  He’ll play a formidable offence in the likes of the Canadiens, who are surely a bit surly after dropping a shootout loss against the streaky Buffalo Sabres.
  • Tomas Plekanec is Montréal’s leading scorer with 46 points (19G-27A) in 57 games.
  • Same as it ever was:  Renney is rolling with the same roster as the Dallas game.  If only the Oilers could play Dallas 25 more times this season, there’s a 48% chance the Oilers could land the 8-seed.  Yeah.  That’s it exactly.
  • Expecting another Carey Price effort tonight.  Price was in between the pipes for Montréal’s 3-2 SO loss in Buffalo, and I’m sure he’ll be eager to lay claim to two points.

But not tonight, Habs.  This is Edmonton’s night.  I don’t care how many guys you have in the stands that remember the 1965 Cup run.  Tonight, the Oilers feast.

Probably on Kraft Dinner, but tonight, we feast.

I hope.

Most important, can we have more fans cheer in the stands for our squad compared to les enfants who chant some  Bouncing Souls tune?

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS!
