Vancouver (10-8-1) at Edmonton (7-12-1)
Hmm, there’s an Oilers hockey game on in 2 minutes. But then, there’s also Yentl starring Barbra Streisand airing on BRAVO. And what’s this? Question Period on CPAC? Shit! Tough decisions.
I don’t much feel like watching a loser team lose, although I guess I’ll still end up watching, as always, wringing my puckhat as those Sedin dinks pad their stats against whatever the Oilers throw at them (the punchline to this is coming...).
The annoyed buzzing sound that you’re hearing from Oilers blogs is chatter over Coach MacTavish’s decision to reward Zack “L Column” Stortini with more ice time… in a checking role… against the Sedins…
Here’s likely tonight’s lines, according to the team's site, as freshly poured from the blender:
27-Dustin Penner 13-Andrew Cogliano 89-Sam Gagner
14-Raffi Torres 16-Jarret Stoll 46-Zack Stortini
