Game 14: Star Versus Star | Oilersnetwork.com - Edmonton Oilers News and Rumours

Game 14: Star Versus Star

Tonight the Oilers take on the Penguins. Rather, McDavid takes on Crosby. At least, that's what most people will be watching for. It should be a good game, but the talk is about most of the story lines surrounding the game.

Whether it's superstars being protected or not. Who is better —  McDavid or Crosby? Can the Oilers win their tenth game of the season? Can certain Oilers get back on track scoring wise? How are the injured players doing? Pretty much all of those story lines are trumping the actual game itself.


Trumping


Speaking of trumping... I'm in Arizona right now where the entire states is watching with a close eye on the election results and whether Donald Trump becomes the President of the United States. Here in Arizona, it's a republican state, so Trump has more supporters. As much as I'm way more interested in the hockey game than this circus of an election, I'm sure I'll be flipping back and forth to see what's happening with the country.

Meanwhile, the NHL continues to roll along and the players will probably hear about the election results after polls close. I wonder if Trump or Clinton like hockey? ...


The Game

I'm looking for the McDavid and Jordan Eberle combination to come out and have a good game. They've been close to capitalizing on a couple chances over the last two games and they had nice chemistry with Patrick Maroon. I expect that line to have at least six points between them.

I'm also curious to see how Cam Talbot plays after sitting his first game of the season. He didn't play against Detroit and Jonas Gustavsson played well. No doubt the Oilers will go back to Talbot, but when you play every game to start the year, I'm curious as to how it affects a goalie coming back from a game rested.

Take Me Home Country Road


This is the final game of the first major road trip for the Oilers. It didn't start great, but Edmonton has the best road record in the NHL. 5-1-1 for 11 out of a possible 14 points. They could have been in a much worse place and if they can manage a win, it will be an amazing start for the team.


I said against Detroit, I don't think the Oilers win and I'll say it again tonight. I was wrong against Detroit. Maybe I'll be wrong again tonight.

But, who cares what I think right? For now, I'll just keep my mouth shut until I feel like spilling my guts again.

  14. The Kentucky Derby 2017 will be the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby, and is set for Saturday, May 6, 2017.
    Javier Castellano is arguably the best jockey in racing right now.
    Except, that is, at the Kentucky Derby 2017.

    It is a baffling fact: The top rider in the game -- he's won the Eclipse Award as the sport's best in each of the last four years -- has the worst record of any jockey ever to ride in the Kentucky Derby. And even with all his accomplishments, when the Run for the Roses draws near the most glaring omission from his resume starts gnawing at him.

    This is the one he wants, more than anything else.
    "To win this Kentucky Derby Live race, it would mean a lot," Castellano said. He paused for a moment, looked up and quietly continued his thought: "A lot," he said again.
