Justin Schultz will be in the lineup tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins, giving the Oilers another puck-moving defender and another full tank of chaos. The second game of a back-to-back sometimes mean slow starts or bad endings, but this Oilers team can't seem to put together 60 strong minutes no matter the situation. Perhaps Mr. Schultz can help in this area.

In his first two games as an Edmonton Oilers goalie, Cam Talbot was outstanding. In his first five games, he had a .920 save percentage (127/138) but since that time he is .867 (156/180). These are small samples and a two-week run of ugly doesn't make a season. The key for Talbot? Make an impression when the next opportunity arrives. Next stop: Detroit.
