GDT: Oilers @ Predators 12-12-06

The Predators spent the first full week of December travelling the West Coast, but have returned for an exciting three-game homestand.

Dec. 12 - Edmonton Oilers - 7:00 p.m.

The Edmonton Oilers make their first visit to Nashville since their captivating run to the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals. The defending Western Conference champions pushed the Carolina Hurricanes to the brink before losing the NHL title in seven games.

The majority of that Oilers club remains intact, though big-name defenseman Chris Pronger departed for Anaheim in a trade. Joining the roster was winger Petr Sykora, who once skated alongside Nashville's Jason Arnott on the famous "A" Line in New Jersey. Sykora has stepped right in as an offensive leader and is a good fit with the Edmonton lineup, which strikes a nice balance between speed, skill, and grit.

The Predators will be trying to reverse a recent trend which has seen them win only twice in the past six meetings with Edmonton. Nashville has the momentum on its side, though, after taking a 5-3 decision in Rexall Place on Nov. 1.

For tickets to the Dec. 12 game vs. Edmonton, order online or call 615-770-PUCK.


Let's hope we see alot of this tonight:

Looks like Sullivan and Legwand should be back in the lineup. This changes our offense completely, and it should make tonights game, much much more entertaining.

TSN Game Preview

(Sports Network) - A pair of division leaders will meet tonight in the Music City, as the Nashville Predators host the Edmonton Oilers at Gaylord Entertainment Center.

The Predators have 39 points and are ahead of the Detroit Red Wings by just one point for first place in the Central Division. The Oilers and Minnesota Wild are tied atop the Northwest Division standings with 34 points apiece.

Edmonton, which is 5-7-1 as the visitor this season, is wrapping up a three- game road trip tonight. The Oilers opened the trek with a win in Dallas on Friday, but then had a three-game win streak halted Sunday against the Chicago Blackhawks.

In Sunday's game, Martin Havlat and Bryan Smolinski had a goal and an assist each, as Chicago downed Edmonton, 4-1, at United Center.

Dwayne Roloson allowed three goals on 26 shots and Jarret Stoll tallied a goal on a penalty shot for the Oilers.

The Predators have had a rough time so far in December, going just 1-3-1 in the month. They last played on Saturday in San Jose and were handed a 3-1 setback by the Sharks. Jonathan Cheechoo had a three-point night, scoring two goals and picking up an assist, and Evgeni Nabokov made 20 saves for the Sharks.

Nashville goaltender Chris Mason stopped 23 shots and Josef Vasicek scored the lone goal for the Predators.

Tonight marks the beginning of a three-game homestand for Nashville, which is 6-1-3 as the host club this season.

The Predators and Oilers met for the first time this year on November 1 in Edmonton and Nashville posted a 5-3 victory. The Oilers won three of the four matchups during the 2005-06 campaign.

I was hoping we'd see sully in tonight, but it's not a bad thing they're giving him ample time to recover.

The Oil will be without Ryan Smyth and Ales Hemsky tonight.

If we can pepper Roloson and keep Stoll from scoring, we should be in good shape....

That's always a possibility with him, however, he probably won't have to. The Oilers are missing their best ES forward, their best PP forward, and their best PK forward in Smyh, Hemsky, and Moreau. Not to mention the team has been playing like crap.

Nashville is not without their own injury problems, but I've got a feeling the Oilers are going to come out flat tonight.

Here's to a great game from my two favorite teams! (but GO OILERS!)

also..those that say things like "dumont doesn't really contribute anything,'

I hope you saw that pass that set up the fiddler goal, a simple one-touch deflection that hit a wide-open, streaking vern. he's been doing stuff like that all year.

Technically, it has been an "unnamed" arena for 2 years or so... Gaylord Entertainment decided they didn't want to pay for naming rights anymore and the Predators sued, etc, etc. That's why Pete & Terry call it the HOP now (for Home Of the Predators). Anyone that refers to it as the Gaylord Entertainment Center is either stupid or uninformed...

By the way, this group performing here tonight at the HOP is particularly annoying... I believe they are called "Soul Incision". Yuk... I think I am going out to the concession stand now (to escape the bad music).
