Stars @ Oilers Lines And Pairings

@Shorcov says is time for sexiness. - Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Komrade Horcov's triumphant return spoiled by nonsensical and wholly unnecessary media fiasco about Nail Yakupov's ice time.

The Media Machine is in full swing and the jury's out on Nail Yakupov. He's the worst in plus minus, they'll say. He thinks he's entitled to his ice time, they'll say.

The knives have been in the same room since the draft.

Oh, and Shawn Horcoff comes back home to the team who dealt him for a seventh round pick and Philip Larsen.

Here are tonight's projected lines for tonight's game against Dallas.
