Mid-game New Years Eve: Edmonton at Long Island

Game Story?

Both the New York Islanders and the Edmonton Oilers suck.

In the 70s and 80s, these teams were the talk of the NHL. Double dynasty. If this matchup happened in 1982, people would be lining up in Madison Square Garden just to watch these guys... who are in Long Island.

They might now. The last 3 number one draft picks are here. Michael Grabner and Jordan Eberle are here. 
Youth movement is in full swing.

Whatever it is, Corey Potter looks like he's back in form.

Hall - Nuge - Ebs
Smyth - Horcoff - Hemsky
Gagner- Belanger- Jones
Eager - Lander - Hordichuk


Dubnyk (a little shaky, no?)

It would be a cop-out to predict something midway through the game :)

Happy New Year
