Second of four meetings this season for the Oilers and Blue Jackets. Last meeting was a 6-3 victory for the Oilers. Jackets are 3-6-1 in their last ten. Oilers are 2-7-1.
- Devan Dubnyk stopped 20 of 21 shots in Edmonton’s 2-1 OT victory against Los Angeles. He’ll get an opportunity to help the Oilers start a streak.
- Frequent trade rumour target Rick Nash currently leads the Blue Jackets in points with 31 (16-15-31) in 44 games. Vaclav Prospal is right behind him with 30 (9-21-30)
- Josh Green getting the scratch? After scoring a goal? I don’t get it.
- If I’m Columbus, I’m going with Curtis Sanford (7-10-3, .912 SV%/2.56 GAA) as my starter over Steve Mason, who has struggled mightily (5-16-2, .884 / 3.46 GAA)
