Game Thread: Oilers vs Blackhawks - Hosting the Champs

New, comments

The Oilers return home and are looking for a win against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Good luck with that.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

After a four game, seven game road trip, during which they posted a less than exciting 1-3-0 record, the Oilers return home to take on the Chicago Blackhawks, one of the three teams that beat them on that recent road trip. In that meeting the Oilers fell behind in the first period (stop me if you've heard this before), rallied in the second when the Hawks took their foot off the gas, and ultimately came up short in their comeback attempt.

Will it be a similar story tonight, or will the Oilers surprise the defending Stanley Cup champions? What I'm hoping for and what if bet my money on aren't the same thing on this night.
