Tonight's Storyline

Tonight isn't about the game, tonight is about the final game at Rexall Place. And this is probably for the best because otherwise we might end up paying close attention to a game between the 30th place Oilers and the 26th place Canucks, and that's not good for anyone. Following the game there will be a national televised closing ceremony for an arena that has been the Oilers' home for 42 years. There probably won't be a dry eye in the house either.
