Enemy territory: The Copper & Blue
Well, we were wondering where the Canucks firepower was, and last night's game brought it back. Sure, we should've tried to play some defense with it, but at least we got the much-needed OT win. Now we have to find the elusive balance of strong defense with scoring firepower.
The back-to-back situation doesn't help, but we're on the winning side of it. The Oilers are also on a back-to-back, beating Nashville 5-1 at home last night before catching the flight to Vancouver for tonight's game. In fact, the Edmonton win last night breaks their streak of 7 straight losses. They actually claim to have some confidence today, which gives Vancouver the perfect opportunity to put them back in their place.
Tonight's gamethread is brought to you by the movie Carrie.
