Yeah if this goes into the later rounds the big guy is just going to lean on em early and wear em down. The boxing analogy is so strong in this matchup. With us probably on the wrong side of the under card. Hopefully we get off at the bell and end it early.
I dunno, I don't see a win here but its why they play the games. That said if the Oilers manage to beat STL one or two times in the upcoming matchups then I wonder why they don't show up vs some of the more manageable teams.
I would say that STL, and LA should be the hardest teams we ever play. These are our hardest matchups.
