When Taylor Hall was injured on November 26th the Oilers said he'd be out 2-4 weeks. Two weeks was this past Saturday, and if you split his diagnosis down the middle three weeks will be this Saturday in San Jose. The Oilers play Thursday in Phoenix, and I suspect we might see Hall either Thursday or Saturday.

 The Avs and Oilers are both struggling to find their identity. Both teams got off to solid starts, but neither has been able to sustain their good fortune. After a 9-3-2 start, the Oilers went 4-9-1 and now find themselves in 11th place. The Avs started the year 6-0 on the road, but the wheels fell off and they are 0-6-1 in their last seven away from Denver.

Both teams will be hungry to reverse their recent skids tonight at Rexall Place.

Soul II Soul likely wasn't inspired by the Oilers when they wrote this song, but many of the lyrics would mirror the feelings in Oilersnation right now.

Back to life, back to reality
Back to life, back to reality

Back to life, back to the present time,
Back from a fantasy yeah

Back to life, back to the day we have
Let's end this foolish game
Hear me out, don't let me waste away
Make up your mind so I know where I stand

GDB 28.0: ABLE TO BEAT CANES?

Hurricane: A severe, often destructive storm that can last a day or up to two weeks.

Caroline Hurricanes: A severe, often defensive nightmare that has lasted almost two years.

The Hurricanes have lost six straight and sit 29th in the NHL. They've given up the most goals, 101, and  the most shots, 917, in the league and they are 0-4 under new coach Kirk Muller. The Canes surrendered the most shots last year as well, over 33/game, so Muller has his work cut out for him.

Don't expect the Oilers to feel sorry for them, in fact you likely should expect an offensive outburst tonight.

You know Eric Belanger is struggling when even google images doesn't have a picture of him in an Oiler jersey, instead you get tasty treats like this one of his some model named Eric Belanger. I'm sure once Belanger scores a goal in an Oiler jersey google will have a picture of him, it just won't be on page two.
