In a season where we’ve seen Oiler goalies do the regrettable, the impossible awaits. After Devan Dubnyk posted the first Oiler shutout in Shametown ever, Ilya Bryzgalov has a chance to play his old team—the Philadelphia Flyers!
Hello! Devan Dubnyk has an answer for every Calgary bullet, Ryan Smyth hearts a goal and then sends the slowest moving puck in NHL history into the net for a 2-0 win in Sin City. It was a beautiful moment, made even more enjoyable because the Flames were wearing their new "we have Crayola" uniforms.
But, enough about the past.
Dittrick brings the news: Martin Marincin, the tallest building in Edmonton, will draw into the lineup tonight for Corey Power Potterplay. I like it—give these towers a chance to play an NHL game or two and maybe they’ll be regulars before I get the pension!
BIG BIG NEWS
Wait, there’s more! The Oilers signed Mitchell Moroz to his entry level deal today, meaning he’s bona fide and buying root beer floats for everyone! Seriously, congratulations to a guy who took a lot of heat for no reason (Moroz didn’t control where he was drafted, only his performance and today’s signing tells us he was plenty good enough) and this is a day us to congratulate him.
Russia’s coolest export is BACK ON THE POWERPLAY according to coach Dallas Eakins! Music! I have no idea what he’ll do, but will guess ‘score with a ricochet off the shot clock" for the win.

BEAT THOSE FLYERS!!!
GAME DAY PREDICTION: Oilers take the Flyers to overtime before Wayne Simmonds walks Nick Schultz and Philly wins 4-3
OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins put on a show for the home crowd, but the big news is Bryzgalov stopping 42 shots.
NOT SO OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: Bryzgalov turns into a real life Jigglypuff and sings the Flyers to sleep in a 7-1 romp.
