Sometimes you name a Goat at the start of the NHL season. Sometimes that Goat gets traded. Sometimes you are happy.

Come one, come all. Share the agony and the ecstasy. Maybe even the boredom.

The Oilers last played in Winnipeg on Dec 15th, 1995 and got crushed 9-4. Joaquin Gage took the loss and played the entire games stopping 35 of 44 shots. The Oilers finished 21st out of 26 teams that year, despite Doug Weight scoring a career-best 104 points. They missed the playoffs for the 4th straight season in 1995/1996, but then they made it to the postseason five consecutive years after that.
The Oilers and their fans are hoping this is also the last year of their post-season drought, and they will look to an old face to try and re-kindle the Oilers/Jets rivalry tonight.
