Do you see what I see? It's an Oilers winning streak!!

Our little Edmonton Oilers are becoming quite the Eastern killers.  First up was Ottawa with Martin Gerber leading the Oilers to victory and defeating his old team before being sent back to Oklahoma with the return of Khabibulin.  Then came the Montreal Canadiens who had a 3-1 lead heading into the third period but our comeback kids, led by Hemsky and Gagner, tied up the game and off to overtime.  They haven't faired too well in OT/SO games this year with no wins in four attempts.  However, Penner stripped the puck from the Habs and scored on a nice breakaway.

There you have it.  2 wins in a row which is their first since the beginning of the season.  And the Leaves are up tonight.  Can the Oilers make it three in a row and sweep the east?  Yes!!  The Leaves are as successful as they were last year and sit near the bottom with the Oilers. 

Dubnyk played a very good game last night so I'm guessing Khabibulin will get the start tonight.  He's been out a couple weeks with a groin injury and was playing very badly before so I'm not sure what to expect from the Russian tonight.  Honestly, he is Toronto's best chance at victory.

I'm going with Khabibulin tonight (I hope to be shocked) and am predicting a 5-1 win for our Oilers.   Suck it Burkie!!!

Update:  Hemsky is doubtful for the game which is too bad since he played great last night.
