Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let’s begin…

  • Devan Dubnyk is starting in goal tonight.  I will be shouting this at select people up to and including game time.  Dubnyk will open this game against a Penguins team that will be playing their third game in four nights.  May the puck be as big as a beach ball, Devan.  And not in a Dan Cloutier beach ball kind of way, either.  Brent Johnson is pegged to be the guy between the pipes for Pittsburgh.  So you’re telling me there’s a chance…
  • Your forwards don’t contain too many surprises.  Was hoping to see Lennart Petrell get the nod over Hordichuk tonight, but let’s see what Hordichuk is made of playing next to Anton Lander and Jones.
  • The defence…looks better with Smid in the lineup.  He and Gilbert will be relied upon to rack up the lion’s share of  the minutes.  Here’s hoping Cam Barker has a positive first step in Oiler threads.
  • The new season is upon us.  Just win.  Win once.  I’m not saying to win only once, but win once, and then win again.  Win some more after that, but win tonight.

Jeff will be live tweeting the game tonight on Twitter at 7.  Depending on how the game goes, the tweets may become more unintelligible as time goes on.  Join us for the jubilant train wreck to follow.  And GOILERS.
