The Edmonton Oilers play two games tonight, one in Edmonton and another in Saskatoon. They haven't posted the lines yet, but we do know that Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ryan Smyth will play in Saskatoon and Taylor Hall will be in Edmonton.
The opposition: Chicago (in Saskatoon) and Minnesota (at Rexall). Both games are online at the Oilers website and both start at 7 (I'm not sure but would hope the game you don't watch would be archived for your viewing pleasure. Should be time to do all that and catch Jon Stewart/Colbert too).
Cult of Hockey is running a very interesting series on Barrie Stafford and his years with the Oilers. The latest installment is here and boasts some interesting items on the team over the years. The font is poor but the article and series are excellent.
I'll post the lines and pairings later, but it will be interesting to see how closely they match up to the day one lines and pairings:
- Gagner-Hall-Hemsky (who is injured)
- Sutton (baby)-Potter
We'll get tonight's lines later, but that's an interesting group.
