Wednesday's Dump and Chase: Oiler Alert

New, comments

There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of beating the Oilers. The feeling is enhanced when it caps of a third straight win. The Predators still find themselves at the top of the Central Division, one point ahead St. Louis who are looking to take it from them on Thursday while tieing the season series. The Blues just wrapped up a drubbing of their own on Buffalo, which is another type of satisfaction for another time.

Fisher (almost) Out Of Water | Predlines
Fisher is best equiped to be in a shutdown roll. Putting him on a line with Smith and Cullen may make their effectiveness drop. However, putting him with a combo of Jokinen/Jarnkrok/Wilson/Beck means those players have to play tough minutes too and they aren't the most reliable. Will be interesting to see what Lavy decides.
