Questions to Answer

  1. Patrick O'Sullivan has a worse +/- than he has points (-32, 30 points). Will this get worse after tonight?
    Will Owen Nolan wear a face shield, or is he impervious to pain?
    Have the Oilers given up on the season, or will the new look squad in Edmonton be looking to build on something for next season?
    Mikko Koivu and Andrew Brunette both have point streaks going (three games and four games respectively). Can they extend these tonight?
    The Wild have looked pretty bad at Edmonton lately. Can they rebound and get another regulation win to inch closer to the playoff hunt?
