Sauve may have some nerves and the Oilers might be able to capitalize on that.
Somehow that just doesn't seem to matter for the Oil. Quite the opposite actually. They tend to over handle the puck around rookie goalies.
I think the Oil will skate with them and hit with them but Im not convinced we can score with them. Rah Rah Salo!! Staying out of the box is a huge key.
Lets go Raffi!!
