Editor's Note: All credit for today's preview to TimmyHate again, I added widgets and pretty stuff and fixed a few things. Good job Timmy. 

WOW ok the boys responded resoundingly last game didn;t they? I think Edmonton is still working out what the hell happened. So heres a little help Oilers vs Coyotes recap. The Bryz-inator got his first ShutOut of the year (woop woop). We outshot them . Also interesting was the fact at the end of the broadcast - 18 Coyotes have at least 1 point and 11 have at least 1 goal.  So if your our opponents, who the hell do you mark? Also, While Jovo, Aucoin and Turris are listed in the injury report, all were skating yesterday and should be ready to go.

So todays prey opponent is the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim  The Rubber Sucks The Anaheim Ducks. Division Rivals, Movie Darlings, and the team to bring the single ugliest sweater in hockey history... Wow...And I'm sorry but this IS worse than the 'Coyote on Acid' we all know and love.

 So the Sucks Ducks (gotta stop doing that) have been struggling lately. In fact heres their last 5 games

Wowsa. Overall they are 10-11-3 - Good for last in the Pacific. Plus we get them on the second game of a Back to back while our boys are niiiiiice and rested. If you want their point of view get thee over to Anaheim Calling.

So about our boys? Well they're Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' WHAT Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' Ye (SMACK!) Sorry Boss. But our boys are on a roll. 7 Straight, top of the Pacific. I'm lovin it. So, uh, just keep on winning huh boys?.  Not much else to say.

Oh yeah, its Star Wars: The Clone Wars night at the Job. There, mentioned, Moving right along.

Five for Winning

Come out fast: Martin Hanzel scoring in the first minute set a lot of the tone for the Oilers game. Score early, score often, and may the force be with you (damnit).

Keep the emotions in check: The Ducks are a team that gets under your skin. We don't want to let them do that. Plus after Shane Doan injured two of them last time - leading to his spin on the Wheel of Justice they're gonna come hard. Show that that Coyotes don't take that crap, by scoring lots and lots of goals

SHOOOOOOOT!: We outshot the Oilers for two reasons - 1) we stifled them on D, and 2) We shot the puck. Jonas Hiller (assuming he starts) has faced the most shots of any goalie in the league (yes including Bryz) so lets make him eat a whole bunch more rubber.

Disipline: Our Power-Play is finding its legs (yay). Lets keep our boys outta the box (and let their boys make the long, lonely skate),

Play the full 60 minutes: Need I say more. Give them NOTHING. Play hard, for the whole game. We've got 3 days off before we take on the Nashville Predators.
