It's the first time since 1971 that all of Canada is experiencing a white Christmas. But really, who cares? The Sedin Sisters are hosting our Brutish and Mighty Oil tonight. Here's Gregor's report on the lines for tonight. -- bingofuel

Line-ups... Hemsky – Horcoff – Penner Nilsson/Moreau – Cogliano – Pouliot Reddox – Gagner – Cole Strudwick – Brodziak – Stortini

Moreau skated at the morning skate and will be a game time decision. If he can't go then Nilsson will draw in. If he does, Nilsson will be eating popcorn in the pressbox.

You know what would be great a shot.

what pisses me off is that the Oilers dominate when they press and then we get into the thrid and MacT puts them into a defensive trap. Nothing about this team make up would suggest a trap system would be the best use of our team speed.

Starting to win the tight ones. Progress indeed.

I'm going to say it right now and let the flaming begin. Sign Cole if it's at all possible. When he gets untracked, he'll be a monster.

One more thing. I noticed guys are starting to block shots all of a sudden. That's got to be by design. Keep away from the injuries before Christmas and now the gloves come off (?).

@ David S: I sure hope that's the deal.

I'm amazed at Cole's luck right now. He must explode for points some time!

Good Game Oil.

I think everyone except Gags and Nilsson looked pretty good out there tonight. I even noticed Reddox once >gasp< which is something all by itself.

Whats with Staios just trying to ring the puck up and out on the pk? Twice he had no pressure on him and just took the swing at the puck and both times it never cleared! If he actually looked first he would have seen he had time and space and would have cleared the zone.. just lazy

Haha! I was at the game and wearing my Oilers home jersey with pride. First period was indeed a snoozer - the Oil were playing at the level of their opponents, and the Canucks don't play the most exciting offensive game. I was super happy with Penner's performance! I'm convinced that he heard me cheering! That last goal from Shelly also SHUT UP a LOT of the Canucks fans that were giving us a hard time - but it still didn't stop the geezer sitting in front of us from telling us that we were cheering too loud. Uhhh... last time I checked, it was a hockey game and not quiet time at the senior center. Come to a game at Rexall!!
