The Oilers are banged up, cut up and beat up, but they'll try to shut up their critics for one night as they take on the surging St. Louis Blues. The Blues are 21-5-6 under Ken Hitchcock, while Jaroslav Halak is 9-0-3 since November 22nd. The Blues sit 4th overall in the NHL with 60 points, while the Oilers now sit in 29th with 38. On paper this looks like a huge mismatch, but the Oilers have surprisingly been very competitive against top teams this year.

For most of us IT is the hardest thing to find in life. We strive for IT, sometimes we have IT, but only briefly, and then we spend countless hours searching for IT again. A few lucky ones find IT and maintain it for years, and just like in pro sports those who have IT are minority.
Can he ever find IT?

It is minus 112 outside, or make that minus 123 with the wind chill, cars are breaking down faster than the Oilers roster, yet tonight Oiler fans can't lose. The Oilers are currently in 27th place, tied with the Islanders and Lightning with 38 points, and they sit nine points up on the 30th place Blue Jackets.
If the Oilers win tonight, fans can celebrate a win, which hasn't happened much in the past two months, lose and Oilers fans are one step closer to a lottery pick, and the possibility of picking first for the 3rd consecutive season.

It is hard being an Oiler fan right now. The Oilers are 8-20-2 in their last 30, after going 8-3-2 in their first 13 games. In fact, the last 21 games have been even worse at 4-15-2 since November 26th. I understand the frustration, and appreciate the passion of the fans. I took the night off of twitter on Friday, but yesterday I logged in and was welcomed by numerous tweets from frustrated fans.

The original Clash of the Titans (1981) was an awesome movie. Harry Hamlin (Perseus) battled the revolting Medusa and the Kraken monster while trying to save Princess Andromeda. It was stellar stuff. The remake was good, but I'm a sucker for the orignal movies. My favourite part was when I realized Mickey, I mean Burgess Meredith was Ammon. Meredith was a great actor and everytime I see him I instantly think of him as Mickey, Rocky Balboa's trainer.
The Oilers could use Mickey's take-no-BS-attitude tonight, when they face the surging Anaheim Ducks, and they could use Perseus' fearlessness as well.
