G22 Oilers at Wild

Ryan Whitney is like a hockey version of Halley's comet in that he appears every 75 games. Sam Gagner looks like he's turning a corner, and it paid off in a small way with that very nice pass to the Russian for a late goal the other night. Gagner: "There are times when the ankle still hurts. What I'm struggling with is the tape on my ankle. You want it tight enough...

Richard Cloutier: I Take a Day Off, and Everything Goes to H-E-Double-Hockey Sticks

Thank you, Colorado Avalanche, for ruining my McChicken Sammich. Speaking of wings, it sounds like Taylor Hall has dislocated one. Yikes! Not good if you are an Oilers fan.

Without Hall, someone is going to need to step up in a serious way...
