Gotta love the passion of Oilers fans. Screaming, pointing, worried and concerned about one of their players, and tonight you'll do the same as the Oilers look to finish the first third of their nine-game road trip on a high note in St. Louis.

The Oilers shouldn't have got a point in Chicago, but they did. They never win in Dallas, but they did. Tonight they will look for their first back-to-back road wins on consecutive nights since December 1st and 2nd of 2010 when they beat the Habs 4-3 in OT and then spanked the Leafs 5-0.

Time to party if you ask me.

He arrived as something of an unknown, partial payment for fan favorite Andy Moog. In the spring of 1990, when fans were aghast at his poor play against Winnipeg, Bill Ranford turned on a dime and posted a performance for the ages. Oiler fans watched in awe, as Ranford rewarded them with a Conn Smythe performance and a major role in the club's 5th Stanley.

The Oilers played one of their most complete games of the season en route to a 5-1 victory in Dallas. They worked harder, won more one-on-one battles, and they finally had a few breaks go their way.

Their 9-game road trip is off to a great start.
