  • The Oilers have lost 8 straight in St. Paul.
  • Edmonton had managed just one goal in three straight games entering Saturday's trip to Detroit.
  • Dwayne Roloson stopped just 11 of 16 shots in the opening period before being pulled in favor of Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the new kids break into the box score?
  2. So, who the hell are the Wild? Seriously? Does anyone know?
  3. Can the Wild win their second game against a team on the second leg of a back to back?
  4. Will Bouchard bounce back?
  5. Will Roloson get healthy against the Wild like he did last week?
