    RED WINGS (8-4-2) at OILERS (3-9-2)

    TV: CBC; FS-D

    Last 10: Detroit 6-2-2; Edmonton 2-6-2


    Season series: The Detroit Red Wings and Edmonton Oilers meet twice this season now that they've been separated due to realignment. Detroit won all three meetings last season, including a 3-2 overtime victory at Rexall Place on March 15, and is 6-0-5 in its past 11 visits to Edmonton.

    Big story: The Red Wings' swing through Western Canada is off to a smashing start. Detroit beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 on Friday, two nights after a 2-1 victory against the Vancouver Canucks. The Oilers continue to struggle; they've lost four in a row and are 1-4-0 at home.

    Team Scope:

    Red Wings: Detroit blew one two-goal lead against Calgary but put on a more Red Wings-like performance after taking a second one. Goals by Tomas Tatar and Justin Abdelkader provided enough cushion to survive Dennis Wideman's sixth-attacker goal with 9.8 seconds to play.

    Detroit coach Mike Babcock was happy with some, but not all, of what he saw.

    "We've got to learn to play and play consistently and do it each and every night," he said. "Some nights you're not going to win, you do good things but you give yourself a chance. I thought we had two good periods and one tough one."

    Oilers: Edmonton has been off since Tuesday, when it took 43 shots but was shut out 4-0 at home by the Toronto Maple Leafs. The good news Friday is that starting goaltender Devan Dubnyk, whose play had improved before he was sidelined with an ankle injury, may be ready to return.

    "I'll be ready to go," he told the team's website after practice Friday. "We haven't talked about it yet but I'll be ready to go if that's what they want to do."

    Coach Dallas Eakins will talk with the medical and coaching staffs before making a decision, but said Friday that Dubnyk was playing better after a shaky start when he was injured.

    "I thought he was gaining his confidence back," Eakins said. "He was square in the net, he was under control in the net when he didn't have much confidence [before]. He was all over the net. He's practiced hard here the last few days and I'll get a read on where he's at."

    Who's hot: Pavel Datsyuk was the first star in Calgary after scoring one goal and setting up another. Jimmy Howard has won both games so far on the trip. … Oilers goalie Richard Bachman has a 2.40 goals-against average playing the past two games.

    Injury report: Red Wings forward Johan Franzen (illness) left the game in Calgary. Petr Mrazek backed up Howard on Friday because Johan Gustavsson (neck) was idled. Darren Helm (groin) and Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) are out. … Oilers forward Taylor Hall (knee) is skating at practice but not ready to play. Defenseman Justin Schultz (groin) is questionable. Forward David Perron (neck) is expected to miss his second straight game. The Oilers also are missing forwards Jesse Joensuu (undisclosed), Ryan Smyth (groin) and Tyler Pitlick (knee).

    That still image of the video there looks like he's tugging on his schlong. Sort of like the Oilers have been doing the first 14 games.

    petr mrazek will likely get the start.

    possibly gustavsson if he's healthy.

    but howard is not going to start.

    I was ready to toss in the white towel after reading the line-ups for tonight. But alas, in true Oiler fan fashion we will drive in tonight for what I predict will be a 4-2 win for the Oilers. (I have some errands to run in Edmonton anyway so might as well catch a saturday night game)

    th Oilers almost always seem to make new young goalies breaking into the league look like the new Ken Dryden. But Mrazek already played his first game so hopefully we won't be as cursed, and the Oilers more often then not show up against detroit so here's hoping they squeak one out

    w3-2 in a SO

    We're going to get roflstomped. Yakupov-Gagner-Eberle might be one of the most defensively challenged lines in the NHL and RNH is saddled with non-finishers like Hemsky and waiver-worthy grinders like Jones.

    Oilers go up 4-1 early in the second period and lose 5-4 in the shootout

    Hopefully we can take advantage of DET being on the second half of a back to back...

    We weren't able to score against the Leafs D on tuesday, doesn't give me much hope against the Wings here. 5-1 Wings.

    I don't care what the score is, but this is what the Wings are going to do to us tonight.

    Wings put 4 past Duby in the first. Bachman comes in, gives up three more. 7-2 final. Belov and Yakupov with the goals.

    It is embarrassing how bad our record is at home against Detroit, much less most teams nowadays. Gee, just another loss and does the team heed the advice of guys such as Ference...I doubt it. Detroit as usual will school Edmonton and as usual the class will check out mentally.

    We haven't done much lately against teams on back to backs, I don't expect tonight to be any different. Even worse, the game is on CBC.

    I have so little faith in this group of forwards without Hall and Perron in the lineup. Now we have all our centermen back, but our two wingers that are the best at creating offense are out...:help:
