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.

On Monday evening, the Oilers Ladies and front office employees teamed up with Soup Sisters to make and donate soup for WIN House. Soup Sisters is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women and children. With branches across Canada, the organization works to aid victims of domestic abuse and youth homelessness with the comfort of a bowl of soup. It’s a simple concept with a powerful impact.

On Saturday night, the Oilers got walloped by the Calgary Flames. Losing by a touchdown to a team as bad as Calgary has prompted yet another round of questions about the direction of the Oilers franchise. Just how much should we read into the defeat?
In two words: not much.
