Not surprised there was no lineup changes, we rarely make changes after a win and i'm sure Fistric will be in tomorrow, maybe we just have to believe in Ralph and see how he does lets give him atleast 10 games

Have some friends in town from Canada, trying to find where the Oilers are staying in Phoenix, they are hunting autographs, any fans know the hotel? It is not the usual one across the street from the Yotes arena, we already checked. thanks!!
Actually Stauffer Tweted Khabibulin has pretty good numbers against Phoenix
9-4-1, 1.91 GAA, .931 S%
Not partricularily relevant for the Oilers though. From what I can tell, Bulin has started 1 game against the Coyotes as an Oiler and gave up 3 goals on 17 shots in a loss.
Glad Dubnyk gets the call. I wouldn't actually mind seeing him play tonight and tomorrow. Then give Khabibulin the afternoon game on Saturday.
I'm apprehensive about tonights game. The Coyotes own the Oilers in recent years. They play a style of game that our kids have absolutely had no answer for. This will be a good test to see if the team can adapt to a more tight checking system. They couldn't in the past. Maybe this is the year.
Must score first and control the pace early. I don't think is the same club that dominated us last year, especially with Ray Whitney gone, but they still have weapons. Frustrated that Potter seems to have a pretty long rope. Injuries not withstanding, we need our best six defenseman in the line-up, and Potter is not among our top six, even the media members on the Oilers payroll are confused as to why Potter slots in over Fistric.
Bad medicine@ your posts is like getting a sledgehammer in the head!
I read one after a walk for fresh air, an advice; make a blog of your own and spam a bit around the board. people in game threads want a short communication not a tornado with words who hunting you down. Good Luck
Watching the pre-game video always gets my hopes up. It's the same old talk...you think they are finally going to *get* it but then the game comes around and it is the same piss poor effort as the last phx game.
