    [fieldset=NHL.com Preview]
    Last 10: Edmonton 3-6-1; Tampa Bay 7-3-0

    Season series: This is the first of two meetings between the Edmonton Oilers and Tampa Bay Lightning. In their most recent matchup, on March 22, 2012, Teddy Purcell scored in the sixth round of a shootout to lead the Lightning past the Oilers 3-2 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

    Big story: The Lightning sit first in the Atlantic Division (20 points in one fewer game than the Toronto Maple Leafs and two fewer games than the Detroit Red Wings), but on Thursday they'll be tasked with slowing down Oilers rookie sensation Mark Arcobello.

    Team Scope:

    Oilers: There was a sense of relief and quite a bit of satisfaction after Edmonton snapped a five-game skid Tuesday with a 4-3 overtime win against the Florida Panthers. The Oilers let a 3-1 lead slip in the third period but recovered when Arcobello scored on the power play at 1:55 of OT.

    It was Arcobello's second goal of the game, the first two of his NHL career, but even before he found the back of the net he had a team-leading 10 assists. The Oilers also got a lift from defenseman Taylor Fedun, who scored in his NHL debut.

    "It was big for confidence there," Arcobello said of scoring his initial goal. "I've had my fair share of chances so far this year. I've been squeezing the stick a little bit too tight. To finally get that first one was big."

    Lightning:
    While not quite the overnight sensation the Colorado Avalanche have been over in the Western Conference, there's an undeniable buzz around Tampa Bay regarding the way the Lightning have turned their fortunes over the season's first five weeks. They have yet to lose consecutive games and enter Thursday seeking their third win in a row.

    Tampa Bay has been particularly tough against the West, which continued in Saturday's 4-2 victory against the St. Louis Blues. With the score knotted in the third, Brett Connolly's first of the season put the Lightning in front to stay and Valtteri Filppula tacked on some late insurance.

    "That's a good team over there and we kept it going in the third period and kind of took over," said Ben Bishop, who stopped 28 shots. "I thought it was a little bit of a measuring stick for us."

    Who's hot: Boyd Gordon set up three goals for the Oilers on Tuesday, including Arcobello's in overtime. … Steven Stamkos has six goals and four assists in the past six games for the Lightning. Alex Killorn has two goals and three assists in the past two games.[/fieldset]




    CREDIT FOR THE IDEA:
    - I did the first half, no time for the second half though.

    Just get points against teams in the Metro. You only get so many games against them, gotta make them count.

    So glad Eager and Acton are scratches but.... I think Arco should center the 4th line not Smyth. We found out how that ended up last year. Also nice to see Hall back to give us some much needed scoring punch.

    Putting Smyth on the 4th line does two things:

    Allows Arco to play more minutes will higher skill players; and
    Keeps Smyth rested in case Eakins wants to ride him during the final 5 minutes of the game if the team is protecting a lead.

    It would be a miracle if this team could roll together an actual win streak. It's asking a lot, but if they could go on a 4-5 game win streak, it would desperately help the team in a lot of ways. From confidence to the standings as well as help the fans. That way we don't throw stuff at them when they come back. :laugh: I kid.

    I'm sorry, did I just read Smyth would be one of the go to guys in the final 5 minutes of the game if they're protecting a lead? Thanks for the laugh. I needed it.

    I'm 300% certain that we dressed Omark specifically for this game so TBay, remembering the spinorama incident, will play with a chip on their shoulder. That would in turn wake up the team a bit. I hope we get into the trenches tonight.

    It's actually happening. I'm not saying I agree with using Smyth in the final few minutes of a game to protect a lead. I'm saying this is something Eakins has done.

    Funny thing is...Stamkos did a spin-o-rama shootout goal like 2 weeks after Linus. I should find that video again.

    LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE FOR OMARK:

    Linus Omark made his initial Oilers debut in a memorable game several years ago against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Omark's spin move at centre ice prior to scoring a shootout goal helped lead Edmonton to the win.

    "It seems like it's always the Lightning," Omark laughed.

    I thought it was St Louis who did it, after complaining the loudest about it.

    This game has the recipe to be very high scoring.

    From TSN - "The Edmonton Oilers look to stay hot as the team travels to Tampa Bay to take on Steven Stamkos and the Lightning."

    Yup, this team is hot alright. Currently looking to match their season high winning streak. Hot as hot.

    won't get to watch.

    Despite all the negativity around this team right now, I'm hoping they just play a decent game.

    Come away with a point and it will be some sort of miracle.
