The good news is, it can't get much worse.

Tonight's the night - the big night where the Oilers break their three game home scoreless streak. Oh, it'll be a celebration. There'll be horns, and lights, and clapping, and excitement. Oh, you're just going to love it. It's going to be the best. Just wait and see.

Then again, it could be a record setting night. The Oilers are a little less than eight minutes away from setting the team record for the longest drought without a goal at home. No matter what happens, you won't want to miss a minute of this action.

Here are tonight's projected lines and pairings for San Jose's visit to the pillbox. Be sure to check back often, as lines have been known change every now and again before puck drop.

No Arcobello?  That'll go over well.
