ENS Gameday Preview: Oilers @ Kings
Puck Drop @ 8:30 PM MT on Sportsnet
Anyone with 10 working brain cells who has watched the Oilers in the last 3 weeks knows that this road trip will more than likely be an absolute disaster. Nothing like being the worst team in the league and going into LA and Anaheim on back to back nights. Make sure you have some bleach ready to drink to sooth the pain for when things inevitably get out of hand. Just a little friendly advice from me to you.
The Kings come into tonight with a measly 24 more points than our beloved boys in blue. They remain atop the PAC-7 but have the Ducks hot on their trail. That race won’t change anytime soon though as they both get a free win with the Oilers in town over the next two nights.
67-97-14. 4-29-44. 23-55-28/26. 10-51-16. 2-5. 82-88. 25-27/19 in Leduc this morning.

Today was an optional skate so there is no confirmation on the lineup, but it looks like Zack Kassian will be playing with Hall and Draisaitl tonight while Ted and Yak drop down to the fourth line.
Looks like Schultz will be in press box. Thank Christ.
Iceman in the pipes.
What Needs to Happen
I don’t even know anymore.
What Can’t Happen
What Will Happen
Look, we all know how this game will probably go. But it goes against our culture at ENS to predict an Oilers loss. So let’s just say McDaddy throws the boys on his back tonight and scores five en route to a 5-4 Edmonton win.
Congrats in advance to the “Safeway Million Dollar Score and Win” winner.
