ENS Gameday Preview: Ducks @ Oilers
I’m going to keep this relatively short because everyone is probably already half-cut for New Years. Edmonton is back in action against the Ducks tonight and are looking to bounce back after three straight post-Christmas break losses. They sucked against the Canucks and Flames, and were decent enough against LA if not for the fact that Cam Talbot just disappeared for about 2 minutes in the middle of the second period. Hopefully the Oil manage to end 2015 on a winning note.
Anaheim has been brutal all year. They haven’t been able to score goals at all which is beyond surprising considering the star power they have in the lineup. However, the Ducks have rattled off three straight wins and may be beginning to turn it around. They will definitely offer a good test to our Oil tonight.
Hall – Draisaitl – Purcell
Pouliot – RNH – Eberle
Hendricks – Letestu – Korpikoski
Gazdic – Lander – Khaira
Sekera – Fayne
Nurse – Schultz
Hunt – Davidson
Looks like the only change up front will see JJ Khaira draw in for the injured Iiro Pakarinen.
Brandon Davidson is recovered from injury and will pair up with Hunt on defence.
Talbot back in the pipes.

Cam Talbot has a nice bounce back game and the Oilers rally around it. Taylor Hall finishes off 2015 with a hat trick as Edmonton prevails with a 5-2 win.
