From NHL.com.

Season series: It's the second meeting between these Northwest Division rivals this week. The Oilers won 4-1 in the first meeting of the 2012-13 season on Monday. They will play each other a total of five times this season.

Big story: Colorado opens a four-game homestand by hosting the Northwest Division-leading Oilers. Having met once already this week, both teams have an idea what to expect. The Oilers won Monday's game despite being outshot 24-6 by Colorado in the third period.

Team Scope:

Oilers: Edmonton concludes a three-game road trip on Saturday. The Oilers lost in a shootout in San Jose on Thursday after overcoming an early 2-0 deficit. The Oilers comeback point was important to the momentum of their road trip.

"I liked our compete level," forward Jordan Eberle told EdmontonOilers.com. “We came back against them and it was great. The characteristic of our team this year is we've been able to come from behind. But at the same time, we have to play with the lead. We have a tough team coming up."

Avalanche: Colorado is coming off a big 6-3 win at Calgary on Thursday night in which three different players scored twice. Center Paul Stastny, who had notched only one assist on the season going into Thursday’s contest, scored both his goals in the final three minutes.

"Sometimes you've just got to keep battling back and find a way," Stastny told the Denver Post. "Sometimes you've just got to find a way to get an ugly goal and that's what I got there on that first one."

Who's hot: The young guns in Edmonton are continuing to find the back of the net led by Taylor Hall who boasts a team-best 9 points (2G-7A) and has a point in every game so far this season … PA Parenteau leads Colorado in goal-scoring this season with five in seven games including a pair on Thursday night.

Injury report: The Oilers’ Shawn Horcoff missed Thursday’s game with a strained neck and his condition is day-to-day. Ben Eager is on IR (concussion) … Colorado will need to find more offense from its role players because two of its top forwards are sidelined with injuries -- captain Gabriel Landeskog was officially placed on IR Friday and is out indefinitely, while David Jones is out with a knee injury.

Avs played a solid game and deserved the win. The Oilers need to be better 5 on 5 as we've said.

The Oilers played their 3rd game in 4 days, with the first two games going into OT, and I think it showed. Had a good 1st period, and created chances, but it was downhill for a good portion of it. Even though the Avs were missing key players, it was all a bit much, and they easily won the game.

Plus
-Dubnyk played a very good game, and kept the scoring from looking worse than it could have.
-Justin Schultz played another strong game. Made crisp outlet passes right on the tape, sneaked into the slot completely open and alone during cycles, created several good scoring chances. Has been their best defenseman so far.
-Eric Belanger played a tough and brave game on Saturday. Took an Eric Johnson shot of the foot but gutted it out and returned to help. Taking another shot off the wrist finally put him out of the game. With Horcoff day-to-day after Shane Doan's post-whistle "the puck isn't anywhere near" hit, the Oilers are in some trouble with Belanger now on IR.

Minus
-Ladislav Smid looked absolutely lost and indecisive out there; the worst I've seen him in a couple of years.
-Ryan Whitney. I saw a Jim Matheson article in which he asked Ralph Krueger about how Whitney's year is going, and Krueger didn't say a word. Not one. We're talking about a motivational speaker here; a guy who makes a living off of finding the positives, and he couldn't find one when asked.
-I generally take zero issue with watching opponent broadcasts. I like to see their perspectives on the NHL, the Oilers players, and hear some info on that team's players as well. However, listening to them gush over PA Parenteau's big year was a bit annoying. Even hockey guys have to figure out he's not going to carry a shooting percentage of 40%, right? He's shooting exactly as much as he ever has in the past, and is playing the same number of minutes every night. They're simply going in right now. I hope they remember that when the "puck luck" goes the other way for him, as it does for every player. NOTE - My issue is not Parenteau. I think it's great for both him and the Avs, and the longer it goes, the better for him. Must make going to work plenty of fun.

Ralph Krueger
-The Oilers would be better off dressing Kelly Buchberger for hockey games than putting Darcy Hordichuk out there. It's actually horrible to watch. Rather than sending down PRV (he's since been called back up with the Belanger injury) I really wished they were willing to expose Hordichuk to waivers, and let him create negative chances, miss passes, ice the puck, and take bad penalties down in OKC.
-Was so happy to see him continue to play Devan Dubnyk. I don't care how much Khabibulin is being paid to watch hockey games. He should only play if Dubnyk is hurt or too gassed to go.

Best F - Ales Hemsky
Best D - Justin Schultz

McNabb and Haynes have become notoriously bad homers the past few years... Always finding something "fascinating" to talk about... Id be willing to bet that Altitude (owned by KSE, who owns the Avalanche) has a bar on anything negative being said, which just leaves them to turn into hideous homer ogres

Yeah, it's probably something like that. I used to really, really like those two but you're right. :disgust1:
