- Tonight marks the first of six games on the road for the Oilers. I’d like to win all six, but would be pleased with a 3-3 finish.
NEWS FLASH- The Oilers look for their sixth consecutive victory tonight. They will continue to ride the hot streak that is Nikolai Khabibulin. Khabibulin has been an absolute wall this season, going 5-0-2 with a 1.12 GAA and .960 SV% in seven games. The Kings will counter with Jonathan Quick, who has been drumming up some nice numbers for himself. Quick is 6-1-2 over nine games with a 1.52 GAA and a .947 SV%. Unrelated note: Quick’s surname is a pretty good one to have for a goalie. Better than Steve Passmore’s.
- Anze Kopitar is LA’s leading scorer with 14 points (6-8-14).
- Tonight’s game is also Ryan Smyth’s first in Los Angeles since being traded from the Kings. Get out there and score a pair.
- The Colten Teubert Experience begins for the Oilers tonight in Los Angeles. Teubert was called up when Alex Plante was sent back to OKC a couple days ago, and it’s quite likely he’ll be a member of the team while Andy Sutton serves his suspension for hit on Colorado’s Gabriel Landeskog.
