The opposing view: Second City Hockey

Top Story: The Blackhawks weird streak of not losing in regulation is over, but they still have 9 wins in their last 10 games. The Oilers have 2 wins in their last 10.

The Oilers are saying:

"No excuse. We're all very disappointed. The coaches all the way through the players. We're going ot have to look at this one really hard."

--Ralph Krueger after the Nasvhille game.

Krueger isn't matching lines well, he's played sacks of meat. He's not been good, but he's probably going to take the fall no matter what.

The Opponent is saying:

"Six goals, it's hard to win when you give up that much."

--Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford.

Tell us about it.

Key matchup: Devan Dubnyk versus the 35ish shots he's going to face.
