GAME DAY: Edmonton @ Los Angeles

Edmonton Oilers @ Los Angeles Kings

02 APR 2012 – 8:30 MDT

Your Game Preview is after the jump.  If you can’t wait, I can’t wait.

  • Bryan Rodney was an emergency call-up from the Barons today after it’s been determined that Corey Potter suffered a concussion in last night’s game.  Of substantial interest is why Potter was allowed back on the ice after suffering a concussion.  Of less interest is how the blue line will look, which is expected to carry all of Barker, Teubert, Rodney, Whitney, Sutton and Schultz.  Of somewhat more interest, this lineup you see right now is why the team should seriously consider trading their first overall pick for immediate help on defence.
  • Kings would absolutely love a little bit more breathing room in the playoff mix.  They’re neck and neck with Phoenix at 91 points, one ahead of San Jose with 90.  Gonna need more than 14 shots tonight, gents.
  • Devan Dubnyk will get the second start in as many nights.  If you’re just joining us, please take a minute to review the utter larceny he committed last night in Anaheim.  Dubnyk is the most interesting story for me going into the team’s last three games on the season.
  • Linus Omark will see action if Ales Hemsky’s shoulder is a no-go tonight.  Darcy Hordichuk?  Oh, he’s still in.  How much grit do you need when all you get is 14 shots against Los Angeles?  I give up.

Oilers 3, Kings 2.  Can Dubnyk save 40 shots tonight, too?
