The Oilers come into this game feeling good about themselves. After sweeping the Flames on the weekend, the Coyotes come to town. The Oilers will have to maintain a new found attitude of playing hard on the puck and keeping pucks out of their net. Ales Hemsky will likely see his first game action of the preseason. He will likely play with Ryan Smyth and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. The Oilers cut 12 players on Monday, leaving the Oilers with the Oilers with 35 players. The Oilers have to get down to 23 players by next week, meaning more cuts are coming and/or players headed for injured reserve. Khabibulin to likely get the start and play the whole game.
