The Edmonton Oilers will strive for two consecutive victories tonight
Improbably, they look to attain them from this year’s President’s Trophy winning team.
Piece of cake, right?

TELL ME A STORY
- The Oilers are attempting to win their final of six matchups against the Canucks this season. Edmonton’s only victory came in an impressive 4-1 victory package on Saturday, where the entire province of British Columbia had to have been believing it was opposite day.
GOOD NEWS: The Oilers will retain the services of defenceman Ladislav Smid tonight. Smid had been questionable after Saturday’s game after taking a blast to the foot, finishing the game with a bloody foot. He’ll be good to go tonight.
- It’s a good bet that Jason Strudwick will be once again on the fourth line with linemates Steve MacIntyre and JF Jacques. Interested in seeing how much ice time that line will see t0night? We’ll take a peak at it tomorrow. Watch me eat my words and that line have a five point night.
- The Oilers look to get another solid outing from Devan Dubnyk in between the pipes. Dubnyk will once again reach .500 on the season should the Oilers sail away tonight with two points.
A National Hockey League regular season game took place on Saturday at Rogers Arena – at least that’s what the official record books will show. In actuality the tilt between the Oilers and Canucks three nights ago more resembled a game of shinny, one in which Vancouver – having already secured the best record in the league – seemed for the most part to be an unwilling participant.
The end result was the Canucks managed to do something that no one since Chris Pronger in 2006 has: make the Oilers look good.

I originally was going to write something extremely offensive and crass, but decided against it at the very last second.
Just go out and win.
Enjoy the game, and GOILERS!
