Why the Oilers will beat the Coyotes 

November, 23, 2010

Thank goodness we had a light three-game slate last week. I had a feeling my luck was going to change, and it did. The Stars helped limit the damage by hanging on for a 2-1 win over the Ducks. Of course, the Predators blowing a pair of three-goal leads to the Leafs didn't help my state of mind.

There's only one game tonight, so I thought I'd add six East-West matchups from Wednesday's heavy schedule. Here are the Hradek selections.
