Winging It In Motown

Morning Skate: O Canada - Winging It In Motown
The youthful Oilers have slowed down after a hot start to the season. This is a game the Wings should win and they need to put the Oilers in their place where they belong. The kids might hang around for a little bit, but eventually the Wings talent should overcome them in a full 60 minute effort. That there is the key. Start on-time and play a full 60 minutes. Remind Edmonton who they are, get the two points, then get some rest and move on to the next city.

Game Day "Red Wings" - Oilers Jambalaya
The Red Wings are a team who will capitalize even more on the Oilers weakness of turnovers, so if they hope to be even close in this game, it will require some smart play moving the puck out of their own end. The PP has looked noticeably different with Potter back out there and the PK has been doing much better as well.

This is about what we might expect, right? Smid and Gilbert followed by the dog's breakfast and Barker is behind the youngsters and the old guys. Only Colten Teubert is facing softer music.

Oilers vs. Red Wings – Game 33 - Putting on the Foil
On paper, the Oilers should get smoked horribly. I’m not so sure they won’t, but the Oilers seem to have a habit of showing up for big games like these. But the Red Wings are a killer force this year, just like they are every year.

Oilers Taylor Fedun takes painful first steps in rehab -
He'd always taken exercise for granted. Run stairs? No problem. Leg press? Phfft. Never had Taylor Fedun imagined he'd be so anxious to do a simple body weight squat.
