Ho-hum. Colorado at Edmonton, 7:30 PM, TSN

Game Story

Well, well. The teams that drafted unos and dosos last year re-unite in a battle of Northwest Division absenteeism.
The Oilers and the Avalanche had spectacular Octobers before collectively deciding to screw it. Both teams find themselves in the thick of things outside the playoffs.

 Can either of these teams get it together and put a streak in to relive that glory they once had almost attained?
Can either of these teams make it to the big dance? 

Gagner/RNH/Eberle - > The Smurf Line
Smyth/Horcoff/Hemsky - > The Old-Folks Line
Eager/Belanger/Jones - > The Leftovers Line
Paajarvi/Lander/Petrell - > The Two Swedes and a Finn line

Gilbert/Smid - > The Shutdown Boys
Whitney/Petry - > The Old Man and the P
Peckham/Teubert - > Give(away) and Take(thebody)

Glorious Prediction - I don't know what happens, but Paajarvi wakes this team up off a sublime pass from Teubert. On the ensuing breakaway, he pulls a Forsberg. Fans rejoice as he finally scores. Eager gets in a heated fight. Oilers win 4-0.
Realistic Prediction - Seeing that the Oilers can do no worse than last game, Smyth picks this team up, the Old-Folks line kicks things together, and the Oilers squeak out of this one with a 4-2 win.
ELPH Prediction - Seeing that the Oilers can do AS worse as last game, various Oilers fans shield their eyes when the Avalanche take a boring one 2-0. Yay.
