  • Oilers picked up two needed points last night versus the Blue Jackets.  Tonight, they look to do it this time to their provincial rivals in Calgary.  Calgary is coming off a 5-3 loss to Detroit, and currently sits at last in the Northwest at 10-12-1.

  • Calgary’s leading scorer is Alex Tanguay.  Tanguay has 17 points (4-13-17) in 24 GP this season.  
  • C OF INJURED: Calgary D man Mark Giordano suffered partially ruptured tendons in his hamstring versus Nashville this week.  He’ll be out for an extended period of time.  Anton Babchuk is also expected to miss tonight’s game with a hand injury.
  • Lines are staying the same for tonight’s matchup save for the goaltenders.  A victory tonight will give Khabibulin ten on the season.
  • Your top five active Oilers in points are…
  1. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins – 28 points (11-17-28) in 26 GP
  2. Jordan Eberle – 27 points (10-17-27) in 26 GP
  3. Ryan Smyth – 26 points (12-14-26) in 26 GP
  4. Shawn Horcoff – 19 points (7-12-19) in 26 GP
  5. Ryan Jones – 14 points (9-5-14) in 26 GP

Taylor Hall (shoulder) has 18 points (7-11-18) in 22 GP.

Oilers make it two.  I’m not even going to say MPS’ name.  He’s gotta score tonight.
