The Oilers might likely need a few distractions to keep tonight's tilt close. The Ducks will be shooting to win 50 games for the first time in franchise history, and they will be fired up after their stunning comeback victory vs. the Jets on Monday. The Ducks trailed 4-0 with 23 minutes remaining, then they managed to tie the game with 23 seconds left in the third before winning 16 seconds into OT. 

The Ducks won't take the Oilers lightly this evening.

As another season to forget winds down, there are more questions than answers, once again, surrounding the Oilers.

How many will be answered in the off-season, and how many will the individual players elect to try and rectify?

GDB 74.0: LAST CHANCE TO SEE A LEGEND

Teemu Selanne burst onto the NHL scene on October 6th, 1992. He tallied two assists in his first game vs. Detroit, a 4-1 victory, then he scored his first goal two days later in San Jose and on October 14th he tallied his first hat-trick against, you guessed it, the Edmonton Oilers.

In only his 5th NHL game, Selanne had his first of 22 hat tricks. Selanne has 49 goals and 91 career points in 82 games against Edmonton, but in his rookie season he absolutely dominated the Oilers. Selanne had 7 goals and 19 points in 9 games (yes, they played 9 games in one year) as the Jets went 8-1 against Edmonton.

Even though he's lit up the Oilers over the years, I've yet to find an Oiler fan who doesn't like Selanne. He is truly one of the greatest players the NHL has ever seen and tonight could be the last time Oilers fans get to watch him live.

BEST D-MAN...

I get to vote on the Oilers best defenceman of the year award. I have voted on CFL all-stars, MVP's, NLL all-stars and individual awards as well as Oiler awards over the years and I take it seriously. I do some research, talk to players in the league and look up numerous different stats. I believe it is important to do some research and put in some effort when voting on these awards.

Even though the Oilers have had another horrendous season, I believe you owe it to the players to make an educated vote.

I have done my research and have made my vote, but I'm curious who Oilers fans would vote for.

GDB 73.0: HOW WILL THEY RESPOND?

Be positive -- it can't get any worse than Saturday, can it? If Saturday was the low point of another frustrating, disappointing season, then theoretically tonight should be better. I understand that is setting the bar very low, but when you're sitting in 29th place you need realistic expectations.

The Sharks might be a bit fatigued. They lost 2-1 in Calgary last night, Logan Couture is doubtful after blocking a few shots and San Jose clinched a playoff berth with the OTL loss. San Jose is 4-1 in the second game of a back-to-back when they win the first game, but they are only 1-1 after they lose the first game.

The Oilers, meanwhile, are 6-3-1 this season when they lost the previous game by four or more goals.
