Last 10: Edmonton 4-4-2; St. Louis 4-4-2

Season series: This is the first of three meetings to be contested over the next 26 days. The Blues won the final three of four meetings last season, winning two by one goal, and are 9-2-1 against the Oilers over the past three seasons.

Big story: Each team played Thursday. The Blues lost for the third time in four games -- 3-0 to the Chicago Blackhawks; they have scored 1, 0, and 0 in the defeats, 2 in the win. After earning a point against the Blackhawks in a 3-2 overtime loss Monday, the Oilers won the second game of their nine-game road trip, 5-1 in Dallas. Edmonton can tie St. Louis in points with a regulation win; the teams were 45 points apart in the Western Conference at the end of last season.

Team Scope:

Oilers: Edmonton has five of a possible six points in its past three games after getting seven points in the 10 games prior.

"Especially now on this long road trip, we need to get as many points as we can, and obviously these kind of wins are huge for our team," forward Lennart Petrell said Thursday.

Five different players scored against Dallas.

"We had a good energy out of the Chicago game and we were able to regenerate here for a couple of days," coach Ralph Krueger said.

The Oilers will remain on the road until a week from Tuesday, March 12.

"I think we're playing solid," Sam Gagner said. "The biggest thing for us is to continue with those same habits. You're not going to get the results every single night but if you worry about the process, and worry about having the right habits, over time, I think with our skill, things are going to go our way. ...

"I feel like throughout this trip so far, we've done that, and we've got a lot left here, and we've just got to make sure every night we come with that same effort, same consistency and hopefully get on a roll here."

Blues: After going 6-1-0 in a short January schedule, St. Louis managed just four wins in 12 February games, with a 1-5-1 record at home.

"Our fans deserve better, and I think everyone here knows that we've got more, and it needs to come out right away," captain David Backes said.

Chicago's Jonathan Toews scored 12 seconds into Thursday's game, and the Blues never recovered.

"Lessons are going to be learned and we're going to have to be better tomorrow night," said Backes, whose line was on ice for that opening shift.

St. Louis had nine giveaways to Chicago's one.

"I thought we had some good players today, but we also had some guys who struggled a little bit to keep up," coach Ken Hitchcock said.

The Blues played Thursday without their entire forward line of Andy McDonald, Alex Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko, all sidelined by injury. Those key power-play participants were missed as the Blues finished a fifth straight game without a PP goal after getting at least one in eight straight.

"We're not going to use injuries as an excuse; eveyone's got them this time of year," Backes said. "We've just got to push through and make sure that we're finding ways to have success rather than finding things to use as excuses and rest on.

"We've got another one tomorrow that we've got to turn around quick, and play a high-tempo offensive team in Edmonton."

Goalie Brian Elliot could get back into net here or Sunday at Dallas.

Who's hot: Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz has five points in his past five games, and his 12 points are tied for third among NHL rookies. Gagner has seven points in his past six games; forward Ales Hemsky had three points Thursday. … Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak has stopped 58 of 63 shots (.920) in three games since returning from injury.

Injury report: Oilers defenseman Cory Potter (head) was injured in Thursday's game and his status will be determined Friday. Goalie Nikolai Khabibulin (groin) was placed on injured reserve this week. Forward Teemu Hartikainen (shoulder) is day-to-day. Forward Shawn Horcoff (hand) is week-to-week, forward Anton Lander (foot) is three weeks into a four-week recovery, and defenseman Andy Sutton (knee) is out indefinitely. … Steen (upper body) practiced briefly Thursday and could return Friday or Saturday. McDonald (left leg) is out on a week-to-week basis. Tarasenko's return from a concussion is unknown.

I know Halak is starting tonight. Boo. I wanted Elliot.

0ilerman 03-01-2013 12:30 PM

who are St Louis' depth forwards?
Their whole second line is out...

Think Hall lights it up tonight. He's rested

I am the Liquor 03-01-2013 12:32 PM

Im not too sure about the Blues lineup, I poached it off of one of their old gdt's from a game or two ago.

The Oiler lineup is accurate according to twitter.

So is McDonald I think. Steen might be as well IIRC. Either way, St. Louis is missing a lot of key pieces and we should be able to win this one. Both teams are on a back to back so there is no real excuse there.

Yes, Mcdonald = knee popped out of joint.
Steen = confirmed out tonight
Taresenko = out indefintely with facial lacerations + concussion.

So yeah that entire second line is out.

Toydarian 03-01-2013 12:35 PM

This was the STL line-up last night against CHI (according to their GDT):

Perron-Backes-Oshie
D'Agostini-Berglund-Stewart
Schwartz-Sobotka-Porter
Murray-Nichol-Reaves

Cole-Pietrangelo
Jackman-Shattenkirk
Russell-Polak

Halak
Elliott

The Blue's haven't been the defensive juggernauts they were last season. In fact, the Oilers have allowed 5 fewer goals this season than the Blues.

Shattenkirk scares me. We got a good chance against every line except that first --- that size and strength.

sdeol44 03-01-2013 12:37 PM

Backes is a game time decision tonight also.. but most likely in since he game back into the game last night.. redden is in as well

488fitter 03-01-2013 12:40 PM

There's no way Fistric should be out of this lineup. He's been solid in every game and adds an element the Oilers are in need of. The 6th spot should be a revolving door for the other 3 Dmen, but from I've seen, Fistric should be a permanent fixture on this team.

Sore elbow.
He isn't benched.

sdeol44 03-01-2013 12:43 PM

Blue only have 3 goals in the last 4 games.. been shut out twice.. hopefully we can take advantage of the entire 2nd line being out and come out with a huge dub tonight

Ahhhh...thanks for the reminder! Completely forgot.

jalbert 03-01-2013 12:44 PM

I really hope Whitney can come out and play a solid game. I feel sorry for the guy.

McDeepika 03-01-2013 12:45 PM

Holy **** St. Louis is loaded with forwards. They are missing an entire line, but their top 9 still looks formidable on paper.

Beerfish 03-01-2013 12:48 PM

We better bring the compete level this game. Last year the last time we played them they bullied us for the whole game and just dominated. Hopefully the blues will get some shaky goaltending.

jsho 03-01-2013 12:52 PM

I'm pretty immature.

And for this reason I think the Jackman-Shattenkirk pairing might be my favorite in the NHL.

Declassified 03-01-2013 12:55 PM

I'm not too worried about this game, St Louis is trending downward after a hot start and we seem to be getting some stuff together. If this game was played a month ago, I'd say it would be a win for St Louis no doubt, but now, its up for grabs.

Jepprey 03-01-2013 12:57 PM

Weird to see Redden play again lol.

AlowlyMcOilersfan 03-01-2013 01:06 PM

It's certainly an opportunity for Peckham and Whitney to prove themselves.

I hope one(at the very least) or both is able to accomplish that.

OilCanada92 03-01-2013 01:09 PM

When did Fistric injure his elbow? From kickin too many *****????

Big game for Peckham, even more for Whitney.

sundaysleftovers 03-01-2013 01:24 PM

Belanger with a hat trick(ha ha just kidding). Petrell x1 gagner x2 hemsky x1
