Morning, folks!

It’s a weird one today with the Oilers in the nation’s capital to take on their finsub, the Ottawa Senators, this afternoon.

Yes, afternoon.

3PM MST, in fact. On a Wednesday.

I suppose they figure if there are no fans in the building that only the available midday on a Wednesday crowd will care to watch. This is right up there with scheduling 14 games at the same time on the weekend so you can, at best, watch one of them. Good stuff from the NHL, once more.

Then stay awhile and listen to Preston, Shona, and Corey form tackle some of the bigger stories from the week that was, Oscar Klefbom’s return, and some rumors from everybody’s favorite lasagna loving cat.
