  • WOO-HA The Oilers are coming off a 2-1 shootout victory over the San Jose Sharks that saw Edmonton get outchanced almost everywhere possible (they were outshot 45-18, and Dubnyk was a showstopper).  Edmonton looks to make it two in a row tonight against eveyone’s favourite squad from BC.  While the playoffs are a far cry from the Oilers, the Canucks sit atop the Northwest Division with 62 points. Edmonton is 2-7-1 over their last ten, while the Canucks are 5-3-2.

  • Which Sedin twin leads the Canucks in scoring?  It’s Henrik with 52 (11-41-52) in 48 games.  Daniel is two behind with 50 in 47.  And now you know.
  • If Devan Dubnyk didn’t sleep on an ice pack after last night’s barrage, I don’t know when he’d ever need one.  Would be surprised to see Nikolai Khabibulin not get the nod tonight.
  • Your Top Five Active Oilers:
  1. Jordan Eberle (still) 45 points (18-27-45) in 44 GP
  2. Ryan Smyth – 34 points (16-18-34) in 48 GP
  3. Taylor Hall – 31 points (15-16-31) in 38 GP
  4. Shawn Horcoff – 23 points (8-15-23) in 48 GP
  5. Sam Gagner – 21 points (5-16-21) in 41 GP
