watch the Oilers show up and play a tight game, giving all of us a glimmer of hope and making us forget for one night just how mediocre this franchise really is...and then we'll be snapped back into reality when the Oil lay another egg against the Canucks
that, or they'll just get destroyed. It'll be one of the two happenings.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see the former happen. It's happened before and the team seems to show up against the giants when the chips are down (specifically I'm referring to that Chicago game last year). We all thought it would be a massacre and it ended up being the best game of the season by far.
Of course, the latter was probably equally (if not more so) likely, so who knows.

There are some fond memories on this list.
I can't believe Jason Morgan is still around. Didn't he go the longest time between NHL games ever?
And I remember when Bill Thomas got the Bozak/Gilroy treatment a few years ago, back when NCAA players signed phoenix.
But, yeah that's a lot of PTO's, they must be hurting.
Springfield Falcons 6 wins in 36 games all time on the road in Manchester
You still need to show up and play the game no matter,injuries,illness,callups,or trades.There is no excuse to not show up at all,we shall see what the Falcons are made of in the next 2 periods,and see what player will step up in the locker room and on the ice to ignite some sort of fight in these Falcons. Stay Tuned!!!!
Sorochan was in the net for the entire 1st period,the 2nd period is about to start so we shall see who is in net now.Sorochan starts the 2nd period.........
Considering Springfield Falcons are 6 wins in 36 games all time on the road in Manchester,and Springfield has it's most important piece in Devan Dubnyk and (two) important pieces on the PK Colin McDonald & Ryan O'Marra it is a uphill battle to say the least and by all accounts everything going against Springfield before the puck was dropped to start the game.
Interesting note,Assistant G.M. Kevin Prendergast is in attendance in Manchester tonight along with a coach named Moore???
Falcons come out with a purpose in the 2nd period,but have nothing to show for it halfway thru the 2nd period
Springfield Falcons have 9 returning players from mlast season and are missing 6 players called up to Edmonton and (1) offensive threat in Chris Minard out with injury.
Manchester have 18 returning players from last season and are missing (3) players called up to Los Angeles Kings
Bryan Lerg from Bates & Brennan scores to make it 4-1 Manchester...........
Trukhno scores from Thomas & Wild to make the final score Manchester 4 Springfield 2 ,i guess i should have put on my lucky hat & sweatshirt on sooner than 1:00 minute before Lerg scored in the 3rd period!Springfield plays Manchester at home tomorrow night!

I hated the McDonald pick at the time, and there weren't too many times since that I've felt any differently, but I'm excited to see him get to play in his first ever NHL game. I'm happy for him, and I hope he plays well. It's good to see a guy make the show after seemingly being passed on the depth chart time and time again.
