Griffins will play FRI-SAT @ Oklahoma, I think they send MacDonald there to be the back-up for McCollum.
I think Tatar is sent down after this match against Calgary. (if he doesn't score a hattrick or something)
And Mrazek gets the start against the Oilers. Eberle, Hall, RNH, Schultz, Lander, Pääjärvi, Hartikainen all are familiar for Mrazek already from early AHL-matches at this season. So you can't give more comfortable chance for him than those "Oklahoma Oilers".
It's always easier for goaltender when he knows the players he is playing against and has had succes against them (2 wins in 2 games against Oklahoma).
BTW, Horcoff, Jones and Reasoner are injured (two best defensive centers and three best penalty killers), so the Oilers will be more "Oklahoma" than ever. Our home power-play should kill them and Mrazek shuts them out.
