I'm just hoping for less DB Canuck fans in Rexall than normal. Realistic hope? Not really.

I just hope I have at least a buffer of a few seats between the nearest Vancouver fans.

If we can steal at least a point from Vancouver and then beat the piss out of Calgary the next two games I will be quite happy.

Good luck with that.

As long as our Oil put in a full 60 minutes, they really showed some resolve coming back from 3 deficits to beat a hard working Blue Jackets team.

We should have beat these guys in our barn last time we played them, time to make up for that.

if the oilers can actually magically pull out a win here (which i do not expect them to...) then i still might have some playoff hopes. Otherwise, I'll still be hoping for a 9-10th place finish for Edm, and will actually be happy with that.

i predict a 4-2 win for the canucks. 2 PP goals for the canucks and 2 defensive breakdowns by the oil.


I hope I'm wrong.


Unrealistic homer prediction: If the Oilers do bust out a win, I predict it will be an RNH breakout. Hopefully he returns to his "hockey night in canada" form and have a multipoint game on the big stage.

I agree. We really need to get at least 4 points out of these next 3 games. I think it's possible too as long as they play a complete game like they have shown they can and our goaltending is solid. 5 points would be even better. Everything is going to need to be on point down the stretch here.

I don't expect them to make the playoffs, would be a pleasant surprise and would mean some great hockey in these last games. I just want to see the push. I'm also heading up for the game on the 21st against the Ducks and it would be awesome if we had a chance, the game would be a lot more fun that way

The Canucks aren't playing very good hockey but Schneider is standing on his head. The Oilers solved Bobrovsky but I can't see them getting lucky in that regard two games in a row.

You mean 3? Allen was like 8-2 before he played us.

Wins notwithstanding Allen's numbers aren't great. His save % was hovering just over .900 before the Oiler game. The Blues don't yield very many shots.

I'm still willing to wager that it won't be like downtown Vancouver, June 15, 2011, or anything.

Their 6 game win streak is rather deceiving on two accounts though. The first account is four of the six games have been against non-playoff teams, including Colorado twice. The other account is they haven't been scoring many goals during the streak. Three or less goals for in 5 of the 6 wins...as another poster said, it has been all Schneider. He's due for a stinker.

I think if the Oilers can come out flying and punish them early with a few hits and get an early lead, they'll have a good shot. If they start like they did against Columbus by standing around puck watching, it could get ugly. As long as they win in regulation, it'll be a great day.

Any win would be good, we aren't chasing the Canucks.

Against the Canucks? I'm gonna say 3-2 for the Oilers, one of the goals will be on the only powerplay we get, one will be fluky and one will be impressive. I say they are scored by Nuge (powerplay), Hall (fluky) and Paajarvi (impressive)
