The end is in sight. Will it be a 29th or 30th place finish? I'm on the edge of my seat.

Tonight's Storyline

One last game and then we can officially close the books on another Oilers season. At the point the best that the Oilers can do is 29th place overall, their sixth bottom three finish in the last seven seasons. For the Oilers to have a shot at dead last they will need a little help from the Leafs, at least a single point, the Oilers will then have to do worse than that. Personally I'm hoping for 29th place, it'll be funnier when we win the lottery from there.
