Home openers do play a role in a teams lust for victory, but Van's home opener was on Thursday Vs. Calgary. So Van already has played that card. That doesn't take away from the fact that the Nuckleheads will be hungry, but it will take some of the edge off - Vancouver has a tendency to get too confident too early.
That said, the game will be close, with the Oil winning 4-2

Edm Goals Hemsky (SH), Laraque, Dvo, Smyth (Empty Net)
Van Goals Bertuzzi (PP), Ratt Cooke (Cheap Goal)
