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.

And here we go…
- 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!
