Patrick O`Sullivan was much-maligned in Edmonton in last season, and no one was more vocal than the Edmonton Journal's Bruce McCurdy. O'Sullivan struggled last season, but some of that was J.F. Jacques and some of that was the percentages. He's not been able to crack the Hurricanes lineup with any regularity, but if coach Paul Maurice plans on playing him at all this season, he should dress him for tonight's tilt against the Oilers.
Listed below are O'Sullivan's career splits against his most common opponents
|St. Louis Blues||12||3||9||12||6||0||1.000|
|Columbus Blue Jackets||14||2||7||9||0||4||0.643|
|San Jose Sharks||18||3||4||7||-4||14||0.389|
|Detroit Red Wings||14||4||1||5||-9||4||0.357|
O'Sullivan's highest goals per game rate is against the Oilers and his highest overall scoring rate comes against the Oilers and Blues at 1 point per game. If you want the kid to break out of a slump, tonight's the night.
