Game 13 Oilers @ Pens

Game 13 Edmonton Oilers @ Pttisburgh Penguins (7:08 FSN/WXDX)

Last game saw the oilers let a 2 goal 3rd period lead turn into a one goal loss at the hands of The COlumbus Blue Jackets.

The Oilers Penalty kill is ranked dead last in the league, I would think that a lot of that has to do with the Oilers Goaltenders struggling to stop the puck.
Goaltenders Mathieu Garon, and Dwayne Roloson have been inconsistant at best. Rookie Jeff-Drouin Deslauriers is 3rd on the Depth list so he doesn't usually have a chance to start a game.

The Oilers Line combos might be something like this:
First Line: Erik Cole/Shawn Horcoff/Ales Hemsky.
Second Line: Robert Nilsson/Andrew Cogliano/Sam Gagner.
Third Line: Ethan Moreau, Fernando Pisani/Dustin Penner.
Fourth Line: Steve MacIntyre/Kyle Brodziak/Marc Pouliot.

Check out the covered in oil blog for some cool info on the State of the Edmonton Oilers.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off a 6-3 win over the St. Louis Blues like last week sometime. It was their biggest offensive outburst of the season and hopefully it is just the beginning of what this team is capable of doing.

Satan, Crosby and Talbot will be on the top line again tonight trying to build off of the Chemistry of last game. [GAZETTE]. Finally they gave Max Talbot a shot on the top line, other than Iceburgh, he's the only one who hasn't been there yet. He looked like he fit perfectly there.

Coach T will stick up for his players. I bet Therrien Challenged the entire Capitals team to a fist fight:
Penguins coach Michel Therrien reacted (Semin remarks) today after the Penguins morning skate. "Is he talking about the youngest guy to get 100 points in the history of the National Hockey League?'" Therrien said. "Is he talking about the youngest guy to win the Hart Trophy? Is he talking about the youngest captain in the history of the National Hockey League to bring his team to the Stanley Cup finals? That's all I have to say."

Enough has been said about this, if you agree with Semin then you are either clueless or a Flyers fan....i guess thats the same thing.

Pascul Dupuis is due back in the Line up tonight playing on the second line with Malkin and Sykora, while Fedotenko is still out with an undisclosed injury.

Go to faceoff Factor for the line combos for tonight. It looks about the same as the Blues game except for the return of Dupuis obviously.

This dude Says Crosby sucks. Maybe it's Crosby's fault that his wingers don't score. The best answer i can think of for this Clown is the same answer Coach T says about Semin and his bone head remarks.

Finally some Pens Hockey to watch, 4 days off blows
