Edmonton has scored fourteen goals in their last two games. Everybody’s getting in on the action. Anton Slepyshev, Milan Lucic, even Benoit Pouliot has two goals in the last two games. The Oilers look to score seven more as the injury-depleted Vancouver Canucks come into town with Richard Bachman in between the pipes.

What To Watch For From The Oilers

Just keep the good times rolling. The Oilers aren’t going to score seven goals in very many games, but like the Dallas game, this a game that good teams should handle. The Oilers are getting goals from all over the lineup right now, and the easiest way to a victory is to continue that trend.

What to Watch For From The Canucks

From Nucks Misconduct

Things aren't going to get much better this season. The Canucks face the red hot Oilers tonight, the first of 3 meetings before the end of the season. They only play 3 non-playoff teams the rest of the way (and one of them is Los Angeles). I had been making jokes about hitting that 65 point mark and then watching as they fail to win another game. Now I am scared they may actually do that.

I can’t explain to you how many times I’ve felt this feeling over the past decade.

Final Thought

Calgary continued their hot streak last night as they defeated the Stars by 3-1. Once again, the Oilers find themselves in a Wild Card position An Oilers win tonight will put them back over the Flames in the Pacific.
