Tonight's Storyline

For those starved who are starved to watch some hockey (in which case I have to wonder why you weren't watching the World Cup of Hockey) this is your chance as the Oilers kick off their preseason schedule against the Flames with a pair of split squad games. Preseason lineups are rarely anything to get excited about, and if you're icing two teams at the same time the rosters get even thinner. Still though, if you need that Oilers hockey fix, you'll take what you can get.
