The Oilers wrap up their November schedule with a date in Canada's capital city. The Oilers are 3-8-2 in November and have been outscored 55-27 so far this month. The Oilers haven't won in Ottawa since March 14th, 2002 when Anson Carter, Mike Comrie, Rem "The Gem" Murray and Brian Swanson scored in a 4-1 victory. Since then the Oilers have went 0-2-1-2, and they will try to kickstart their three-game swing through Eastern Canada with a win over the 10th place Senators.

Avalanche -verb: To overwhelm with an extremely large amount of anything.

An avalanche can be used in the form of a noun as well, but based on how the Oilers are playing right now, Avalanche might be more appropriate in the form of a verb tonight.

John Candy played Barf in the 1987 sci-fi parody, Spaceballs. It was a strange parody on Star Trek, Aliens and the Star Wars trilogy. It didn't do very well at the box office, but became somewhat of a cult classic afterwards. Barf and his captain Lone Starr ended up saving the day of course, but while this was a unique character for Candy it was the prelude to Candy's best characters: Del Griffith in Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Chet Ripley in The Great Outdoors and Buck Russell in Uncle Buck. What does Barf have to do with the Oilers, you ask? Stick with me.

Tonight they face a Ducks team that has lost four in a row, two in OT, so one losing streak will come to an end. The Ducks won all four meetings last season and outscored the Oilers 20-9.
