Tonight's Storyline

One last Saturday night game and one last Battle of Alberta at Rexall Place. After this the Oilers host the Canucks and then that's it for the Oilers and this building, it's on to Rogers Place for next season. Unfortunately I'm not old enough to remember these games when they really were a battle. I've heard stories and watched old VHS recordings but I never got to experience it live. But even without that some of the more recent games have still left me with some fantastic memories. Jordan Eberle's first career goal is one that comes to mind right away. Tonight it might be better to think about what was with these two teams, rather than what they are now.
