GameThread: Oilers at Ducks - The Quack Attack Is Crap Jack!

Kelvin Kuo-US PRESSWIRE

The Oilers play a late-nighter in Anaheim

Loading Scores

Game preview: If there's one team in the league aside from the Predators that the Oilers could be able to outshoot, it's the Ducks. It doesn't matter though, I've done this study that says the Oilers are capable of shooting 19% as a team. They are supah snipahs.

Team Reports

Oilers Report: Hemsky out, Yakupov up to the Gagner line, the worst 4th line in a long time.

Ducks Report: The Ducks have two guys the Oilers should've picked up for nothing - Daniel Winnik and Matthew Lombardi. It would be fitting that those two score this evening.

Expected Line Combinations

Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
Magnus Paajarvi - Sam Gagner - Ales Hemsky
Ryan Smyth - Shawn Horcoff - Ryan Jones
Lennart Petrell - Jerred Smithson - Mike Brown

Ladislav Smid - Jeff Petry
Nick Schultz - Justin Schultz
Ryan Whitney - Mark Fistric

Devan Dubnyk

Scratches: Corey Potter, Anton Lander, Theo Peckham
