Oilers Head to the Island...In Saskatoon

Islanders players active for this evening's tilt:

Forwards: Richard Park, Jeff Tambellini, Josh Bailey, Matt Moulson, Joel Rechlicz, Robin Figren, Tomas Marcinko, Blake Comeau, Greg Mauldin, Sean Bentivoglio, Trevor Smith, John Tavares

Defensemen: Mark Streit, Calvin de Haan, Radek Martinek, Brendan Witt, Brett Westgarth, Andrew MacDonald, Jyri Niemi, Justin DiBenedetto

Goalies: Martin Biron, Scott Munroe

I'm excited to get another look Calvin De Haan, the rookie defenseman for the Islanders -- the kid is playing like a 24-year old already.

The Oilers posted lineup after the jump:

Jacques - Potulny - O'Sullivan
Minard - Comrie - Stortini
MacIntyre - Pouliot - Pisani
Stone - Kytnar - Eberle

Chorney - Visnovsky
Arsene - Staios
Strudwick - Plante


Ryan Potulny finally gets a crack at some game minutes, and at center to boot. If the guy can win a faceoff, he should get a job. If anyone can win a faceoff, they should get a job. Anyone. If the guy wearing the Messier jersey in the 27th row can do it, sign him. Lubomir Visnovsky is back from injury - hopefully he moves well and avoids contact.

Open comment thread for the game - have at it.
