TB and possible PL depending on goalie starts and Eberle status.

As much as I totally realize most times there's underdogs that pull off upsets durning a slate of games but the OILERS??? to BEAT the LIGHTNING???  Come on !!!!! 

                   TAMPA BAY - in a squeaker!!! 

          I'm thinking Edmonton will put on a good show on their first game of their home stand, but will lose again!!!! Lol.

The only thing the Oilers have going for them is a wild offence. TB is one of the best at containing high powered offences and the Oilers are a far cry from the Hawks, Sharks, etc. Maybe Bishop will take the night off and they can make a game of it, but they have a losing streak (including 2 savage beatings) in between now and when they were fired up at home over that fan throwing a jersey. Maybe that momentum still carries over but I see an emotionally deflated team up against one of the few East teams that can play with the West's. TB play the Jets next so no reason to overlook this game. If Eberle doesn't play that makes that Oilers team far less dangerous and TB will hold them to 2 or less. TB has been on the west coast for a while now so I doubt they are traveling very far. 
I think if Bishop starts and Eberle sits the Over may not happen. I would look into how the Oilers produce at home with out Eberle and wait for goalie confirmations before I wagered that but that's just me. 
If Eberle is in the line up and Lindback playing for the Bolts then I like the look of a 4-3 total alot more.
