Oilers End Homestand With Blue Jackets

Tonight is Edmonton’s last home game for two weeks.  The Oilers have also afforded the opportunity to end it on a two game winning streak.

Shooting for 2

  • The Oilers wrap up their current homestand with the chance for a two game winning streak.  After tonight, they’ll head out to Colorado for a Saturday matchup against the Avalanche.  The Oilers are 1-2 against Columbus so far this year.
  • Ales Hemsky will be missing at least the next couple weeks with what is currently being reported as a rotator cuff injury suffered midway through the Nashville game on Tuesday.  Move along, nothing to see here…
  • Can you guess who’s leading the Jackets in scoring?  If you guessed Rick Nash, well, that would’ve been my guess too.  Nash currently leads the Jackets with 56 points (29G-27A) in 61 games.
  • Devan Dubnyk gets another start between the pipes tonight.  Dubnyk will try to atone for his recent performance against St. Louis by helping Edmonton to a second consecutive victory.  We hope.

There’s a hockey game on tonight.  You should watch it.  If I have to watch it, so do you.

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS!
