Tonight's Storyline

We're in the home stretch now, folks. There are just ten more games to be played, and then another disappointing season of Oilers hockey will officially be in the rear view mirror. On the road ahead us will be another draft lottery win (come on, we all know it's going to happen), then draft itself, and finally the summer where we all hope (expect?) Peter Chiarelli to start doing some of the heavy lifting that'll be required to turn this team from an also ran into a contender. A team whose fans aren't thankful when there are only ten games left in the season.
