After the jump, Andrey Osadchenko conducts a feature interview with Nail Yakupov - and it's well worth reading. Yakupov talks about his adjustment to the NHL, the things that matter to him at this level, why he likes playing in Edmonton, and his opinion of the Oilers' coaching staff. JW.

There's not an Oiler fan alive who isn't wishing the best for Ryan Whitney. It was heartening to see him play a solid game and score a goal last night for the blue and orange. Is this a preview of coming attractions?

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.

I'm excited to show you guys this new pilot project! We don't have a name yet, but we're going to be talking about sports over beer at Tallboys' in downtown Toronto at 838 Bloor Street.
For the first week, I sit down for a pop with Jeff Veillette aka Jeffler of Leafs Nation, and Thomas Drance of Canucks Army, along with myself (Steve Dangle) to talk about Leafs goaltending, Canucks goaltending, tampering, and more.

A 5-1 over Dallas in Dallas last night? Jeff Petry scoring in two straight games? The rookie party must have been one hell of a morale raiser for the Mighty Oil because that was as complete of a game as we have seen in awhile from the Copper and Blue and Orange and Blue.
Time to party if you ask me.
