It’s The Young Oilers vs. The Whatever You Want To Call Them Wings

A little stat before the game starts- average age of the Oilers taking the ice tonight is 24. and for the Wings, 26.5.

With that out of the way, another must win game for Detroit as we count down those 'must win' games.

Two points needed badly or else the teams the Wings are chasing will be out of reach.

Yes, the three point games hurt the Wings badly, but instead of looking at the big picture, all concentration should be on the next shift.

Little Teemu (#56 in your program) makes his debut tonight and I would imagine if his game is on, we should see him off the fourth line duty.

Howard has to be good, real good and watch out for the Oilers, they tend to score in bunches.

Viktor Fasth is expected in goal for Edmonton, Wings need to stay in the offensive zone as long as possible and work on driving the middle of the ice.

It is a live blog bitches!

I know I’m a couple of minutes behind, but that looked like another Wing bent over coasting behind the net, maybe DeKeyser looking like a wrist slash or something. 

RSV.

FSD showed he took Glendening’s skate to the face when 41 tripped over another prone player.

roger roger, i was out of pocket, playing in my pocket, for a week or so and caught up the data entry of the past week’s games. 

there’s a couple of other looks that are interesting, maybe get compressed too much to put on A2Y.

OBT MF W,

Am I seriously the only one that is impressed with the stunning similarity between a young Woody Harrelson and Teemu Pullkkkinnenn ?  Like it’s the same person, even.  Or twins.

55 has been playing around with the puck a bit too much in our zone.

Kronner passing to his vacated point position.

Pulk has more hits in the d zone than E-52 in their respective careers. Just sayin
