I'm not sure why they wouldn't bring Lander up.

I suspect RNH has mono. No real evidence, just a guess. That's what happens when you have your first kiss at recess Ryan!

3-1 Oilers.
considering how crappy the oilers have played against lesser teams, and how they ALWAYS fall apart in the 3rd period, I also can't see them winning.
even if they get the lead or are tied, they will crumble and choke.
so you could be right about the 3-1 lead, but it will then end up 4-3 blues.

This game scares me, but I don't feel it is un-winnable.

I won't get to watch, but here's a ford™ key to the game: don't blow another two goal lead.

Am I the only one wondering what you were doing up at that hour surfing the net with your grand-daughter?

On a serious note...as long as we're trailing after 40 minutes we have a shot!

I would much rather sacrifice Yak to the Belanger triangle, than to have a line of Jones Smyth Eberle.

I think its herpes.

He has been fighting cold sores all season.

Those road trips to Calgary are fraught with hidden dangers.

Awesome GDT. This is a must win. WE have to win a couple here and get within a point or two of the playoffs.

I think he might play really well down the stretch here, he seems to really step it up when the games matter.

3-1 Oilers.
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.

Finally.


Khabi tends to play lights out in first games back after having a lot of rest. Could be interesting.

I prefer "belanger triangle".

But yeah, awful. Lets count the times that Belanger services Yak for a onetimer.

Not a good drinking game.
