It’s Thursday!  Tomorrow, the Oilers begin a four game homestand in an effort to claw up the standings.  Detroit will be their first obstacle.

The Flames disposed of Detroit last night because of two words:  Jonas Gustavsson.

Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson  allowed five goals on 22 shots, while Miikka Kiprusoff turned aside 38 of 40 for Calgary.  This means that the Oilers will likely see their good buddy Jimmy Howard between the pipes tomorrow.

More on that when you wake up tomorrow.

Here’s what’s happening around the NHL today:
