I’m fairly certain Kevin Lowe would like this game in the “W” column. A win tonight puts them in a scrum for 10-13th with Phoenix, Chicago and Columbus and at least one of those teams might feel a lottery pick is worth flushing the season.
The Oilers schedule through season’s end is a bear, featuring a few teams bound for glory. If the Oilers are going to get into (say) 11th for the season, they will need their best players to bleed a little.
Garry Unger (in photo) would be an example.
