Are we cheering for wins or draft position again?
Eh. Tonight, let’s go for the W. Those are more fun.
Edmonton Oilers @ Minnesota Wild – Game 60
22 FEB 2011 – 6:00 PM MST / 8:00 EST

And…here we go.
- Ah, the road trip. Tonight, the Oilers begin the wild and wonderful journey of trying not to lose games in buildings of opponents. Fear not, it’s a short two gamer. The Oilers will face the Craig Anderson-less Avalanche tomorrow.
- Sixty games in, and Taylor Hall scored his 18th, 19th and 20th goal in an impressive (to say the least) comeback over the Atlanta Thrashers this past Saturday. 38 points in 59 games for the young man from Kingston, good for third in rookie scoring and just seven behind Hurricane wunderkind Jeff Skinner.
- I’ve got a great idea for Khabibulin. I know I told you that last post, but I really, really do. I think you’ll like it. It might be tomorrow, it might be the next day, but unless the Rangers would like an extreme hockey package featuring Tampa Bay’s 2004 Stanley Cup Winning Goaltender over the next few days, I think it’ll be worth a minute or two of your time.
- The Wild are a team (amongst others) that Edmonton seems to always stumble upon when they come together. This is the fourth of six meetings this year between the squads, with the Wild going 3-0 so far. The Wild won’t have any help tonight from 49 point centre Mikko Koivu, who is sitting out tonight with a finger injury.
The elusive four game streak rides tonight. Oh yes.
Enjoy the game, and GOILERS!
