HNIC Prime Time vs. The Leaf Blowers
Hockey Night In Canada. The first game of the Saturday night double header is versus the Leafs with a tight playoff race on the line.
It doesn't get any bigger than this. ...Until next game. But for now, this is huge.
The Oilers showed up in the "Nation's Capital" on Thursday and proceeded to bring the suck. The new parts acquired at the deadline looked tired and the team didn't seem to have any umph. Gagner played a pretty good game all by himself. Everyone else took the night off.
Moving forward to this evening, I expect an up tempo, physical game from the Oilers. I expect the Leafs to suck. I expect Hemsky, Horcoff and Souray to find the score sheet finally after quite a number of games of being fairly invisible. I expect hits, forechecks, backchecks, passes and goals. I expect good hockey. I expect explosions, lasers, fog, holograms and face melting guitar solos too.
Ok Oilers and Leafs...Entertain me.
