This is David Puddy, one of the greatest supporting characters in TV history, from Seinfeld. Most of you remember Puddy, but did you know he only starred in 10 episodes as Elaine Benes' boyfriend. He has only in ten episodes, but most of you will remember his hilarious antics on the show. While walking across the street, a car comes close to him, he leans on the hood, stares at the driver and yells, "The Devilllsss, The Devillss." The priest driving the car almost faints. And how can you forget his classic, "High Five."  The Oilers need some of their supporting characters to show up tonight, to avoid getting embarrassed for the third straight game.

Tyler debate last year, there wasn't much mention of Jeff Skinner, but as we got closer to the 2010 draft we started to hear more about the offensive upside of the former Kitchener Ranger. The Hurricanes took him with the 7th pick and so far he has looked like an exceptional choice. Tonight we will see four of the top-eight rookie scorers in the NHL, and Skinner leads them all with five goals and 12 points.

Shawn Horcoff is listed as day-to-day with a left leg injury after clipping skates with Jack Skille during the Oilers 2-1 win in Chicago last night.
