Tired of continuously hitting the refresh button during games? Not a twitter user? Swing by and discuss the game LIVE! We'll sync up some of our favourite/relevant Tweeter's for the game (Rishaug, Matty, Gregor, etc), along with a few from behind enemy lines to bring you all the info you need in one live-updating feed.

Maybe we'll even be fortunate enough to have Rueben swing by. So give it a whirl tonight and let us know what you think. What's the worst that could happen? The Oilers are down 6-0 after the 1st? Wanye gets drunk and passes out mid-way thru the 2nd? Probably.

Nicklas Backstrom will sit out for the first time in his NHL career tonight, ending a streak of 313 consecutive games, because of a thumb injury, but the Caps don't expect him to be out long. This is a big break for the Oilers, who know what it feels like to lose an offensive star, but even without Backstrom the Capitals will be a formidable foe this evening.
