It is game day folks, the Edmonton Oilers roll into town tonight for their first meeting with the Minnesota Wild since Taylor Hall's dirty hit on Cal Clutterbuck.

Bet we get to see a few of these tonight.

Welcome to the Walk today folks. Another game is on the horizon and so we come to you in an effort to get you up to speed about tonight's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Wait, whats that? You already know the back story? But certainly you haven't heard about Cal Clutterbu.... oh, you have.

Well Wilderness, their isn't much to be said about this one. The Oilers come calling tonight at the X and you can bet your boots the atmosphere surrounding tonight's game is electric. The return of Taylor Hall ladies and gentleme... WHAT!?!?

You're telling me that sad sorry sonuffa-b may not even gear up tonight!?

Well fuck it then, games on at 7:00pm, stop by for some Game Day Thread action later and we can collectively deflect any fenwicks and corsi's that stray too close.

It has been brought to the attention of those of us at Hockey Wilderness the Oilers have no site here on the network. It is simply a black hole of nothingness, an endless chasm of darkness where few have ventured and even fewer have returned. If you must tread that direction, you're on your own, we do not condone or encourage any venturing off the trail, and as always, don't feed the trolls.
