Game Night - "Predators"

Well, another game coming up tonight against the Nashville Predators. They are always a team, I dread to see play the Oilers. Playing these guys is like playing the Wild. (oh yeah, we play them Thursday don't we?) What I mean to say, the Predators play a very defensive style of hockey that makes you become disinterested in the action. They wait for you to make a mistake and then pounce on you!

While it was exciting to see RNH score the hat trick, it really has people asking where the offence is going to come from. After all, is this team not supposed to be loaded with skill up front? It will come, I am sure of that, but in the meantime, I am fine with RNH running the show. I predicted a strong possibility in a earlier blog that RNH could win us a Calder Trophy this year in Edmonton. Of course I will be cheering for him to rack up the points. I expect we see someone, not named Hall, Eberle or Nugent-Hopkins show up for this game tonight to score.

My predictions for tonight's game at Rexall Place. Gametime 7:30pm CHED630am/SportsnetWest

REV'S Edmonton Oiler
Gameday Predictions Oct 17th/11

1. Ben Eager will dress tonight for his very first as a Edmonton Oiler. He will receive at least 1 penalty tonight and receive no more then 7 total min time on ice.
2. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will get at least 1 point tonight as he continues to get the very best linemates to play with.
3. Ryan Smyth will rise to the occasion of 'Bobblehead' man. Instead of 'bobbling' the puck on the ice, he will let his doll do the 'bobbling' in the crowd. Ryan comes out tonight with a big game, one fans will be proud of.
4. The Edmonton Oiler defence will make some kind of miscue, causing a goal at a important time when they were just making strides offensively.
5. The Oilers will need to score at least 4 goals to have a win cause the puck will find the back of their net a min of 3 times tonight.

As the great Ed Whalen use to say "In the meantime and in between time, that's it, for another edition of...REV'S PREDICTION" (bolded words are not Whalen's words)
