Edmonton – Sheldon Souray (shoulder) is out. Ethan Moreau (foot) is out. Joni Pitkanen (knee) is out. Matt Greene (ankle) is out
Nashville – Martin Gelinas (shoulder) is out. Darcy Hordichuk (broken toe) is out. Shea Weber (knee) is out. Steve Sullivan (back) is out.
This could be a gigantic win for us. We would be 1 win away from .500, and I like our chances. The Nashville/Edmonton games have always been exciting to watch, so I recommend everyone tuning in for this contest! Its going to be fast and furious!
START MASON WHILE PLAYING DEFENSE FIRST IS FRESH ON THE PLAYERS MINDS!!!!
Last night was a 'late' game and they are playing earlier today. Ellis played a great game last night and that's all awesome... but we NEED to do something to get Mason's confidence going again. I say while the idea and win is still fresh, start Mason in net and tell the skaters to do the same thing all over again... 5 men back on D.
Not only Mason but the teams confidence in him needs to be built back up.
Mason's confidence has got to be low, however Ellis' is Sky High, we have to ride the hot wave of this young kid. Who cares that they are playing back to back, ride the hot wave. 2 shutouts in 3 starts, ride the wave!!!
Wow judging by our records this should be a fairly even tilt. The Oilers need this game tonight, as they play 8 straight against division rivals. They need the confidence boost. Nashville needs to build off their big win against the canucks ,and try to keep the ball rolling. Should be a fast one!
FYI keep an eye out tonight for Oilers RW Robert Nillson. He draws into the line-up tonight. I expect him to be creative tonight.
Alright, I'm laying the law down now. Edmonton fans, you can come in and post, but if you start flaming and trolling - its instant infraction. Our fanbase has had enough from other boards, so rail on Tootoo if you want......but do not go overboard.
It did look like one of the feet left the ice prior to the hit, but it definitely wasn't a full scale jump-hit. I think the problem was that flew so far in the air/into the boards (due to Tootoo's velocity coming in...)
