Oilers @ Blackhawks | February 25th, 2013 | 7:30 PM CST, CSN | Avoiding the spOILERS

Looks like we still need a GDT. Getting close to gametime. I basically just copy and pasted the one from the Oilers and left a note there for them to let me know if they want me to get rid of the content below since I copied their formatting.

Game Preview
Quote:
It's been 11 months since the Chicago Blackhawks lost in regulation, but they've suffered that fate in each of the last three meetings with the Edmonton Oilers.

A fourth loss to the Oilers in such fashion would be their longest such slide in the series in over 26 years.

The NHL-leading Blackhawks look to continue their dazzling run by getting at least a point for the 25th consecutive regular-season game Monday night when they host Edmonton.

Chicago (15-0-3) has already put together the best start in league history without suffering a regulation defeat. The Blackhawks last fell in three periods in a 6-1 loss to Nashville on March 25, going 18-0-6 since.

That streak ranks third all-time in NHL history, four shy of Montreal's effort during the 1977-78 season and 11 short of Philadelphia's record from 1979-80.

Both of those teams reached the Stanley Cup finals. For now, the Blackhawks would like to focus on beating the Oilers (7-7-3) since they've lost each of the last three meetings while surrendering 21 goals.

The Blackhawks dropped all four matchups with Edmonton during 2003-04, but that included an overtime defeat. They haven't endured a four-game regulation slide in the series since losing nine in a row from Jan. 11, 1984-Oct. 21, 1986.

Chicago certainly enters this meeting with staggering momentum, continuing its streak with Sunday's 1-0 win over Columbus to improve to 5-0-1 on this seven-game homestand.

"We're playing to win," coach Joel Quenneville said. "Being on the right side of pucks in a game like (Sunday) was a good test for us."

It's unclear if Quenneville will go with Corey Crawford again after he made 28 saves against the Blue Jackets in his return from an upper-body injury that kept him out four games.

Crawford is 8-0-3 with a 1.50 goals-against average while backup Ray Emery has a 2.10 GAA while winning each of his seven starts.

Both, however, have struggled versus the Oilers, with Crawford compiling a 5.75 GAA over the past three meetings while losing his two starts. Emery has surrendered 10 goals on 40 shots over his two appearances, losing his only start.

The Oilers are opening a nine-game road trip that includes another visit to Chicago on March 10.

"I think you have to take it one game at a time," left wing Ryan Jones told the team's official website. "When you look at the whole road trip all together, it's going to be a bit overwhelming. If you approach every game as it is, it's going to be a lot easier."

Despite Edmonton's recent success against the Blackhawks, Jones certainly doesn't think this time will be easy.

"The start that they've had is insane," he said. "It's something that we have to work ourselves up for. They score by committee and are extremely hard to play against at home because it's so loud in that building."

Another strong performance from Jordan Eberle could get the trip off to a strong start after he scored in regulation and the shootout in Saturday's 3-2 win over Phoenix.

The right wing leads the team with six goals, half of which he's scored in the past four games. He's also been impressive in eight career meetings with Chicago, scoring five goals while setting up 10 others.

Eberle has 13 of those points in the past five meetings, including four in an 8-4 home win Feb. 2, 2012. That was still only half of Sam Gagner's production, as he managed career highs of four goals and four assists.

Gagner's 17 points on the season lead Edmonton.

Well he says it every game and we win every game. I'm fine with him continuing. I'm expecting a blowout tonight, like 4-1 or so with the Blackhawks on top.

Jack Michaels confirmed Emery as the starter.

It was the right move.

Yup

I said it somewhere else, but as long as Wayne Gagner doesn't make an appearance tonight, I don't care who wins or loses.

Agreed, Crow looked great but he didn't face the kind of heat the Oilers will bring tonight and he is just off of injury. Besides Emery is playing great so no reason to let him sit on the bench getting rusty.

If you look at goals scored this season, Edmonton is one of the lowest scoring teams in the league. Hopefully that trend will continue tonight.

I think the first 10 minutes of the 1st is going to tell us everything we need to know about how this game will play out.
