Jhonas Enroth is the starting goalie for Bufallo. On a early lean and glance I favor Edmonton. They go for their 4th win in 5 games. In between was the loss vs Boston.

Moulson is out and Stafford is questionable. Sabers players are too busy thinking about the vacay to even care. Oilers will want it more or just want it at all. Waiting for the Scriver to get his confirmation and then I'm on Oilers. They have also added much needed toughness to their blue line. I believe they have hope and a desire to win. Hall and Eberle have been playing great. Hall was a little pissed he wasn't even really looked at for team Canada. Sabers are going to try to thug it out but the kids will be expecting it and should be able to use their speed and skill advantages to exploit the slower Sabers D.

Enroth seals the deal. He's been my favorite goalie this year and by far one of the most consistent. Consistently losing that is. He is yet to win a game on home ice and only 1 win the entire season. 

I'm going to avoid picking a total on this one although at first glance I thought 5 was set too low (maybe set assuming Miller would start). Scrivens play is too much of a wild card for now. Oilers may shut the Sabers out or the Sabers may rack up 4. I pencil in 2-4 for the Oil Kids but with Enroth they could take the total Over by themselves. 

Oilers ML and to Score First (check out the first period GF and GA for these 2) BOLTA

Bryz will start. NOOOOOOO!!! Lol. OVER it is then. I was afraid they would do this but it's probably what's best for Scrivens development so I understand the logic behind it. Sweet thing is the o/u got set at 5. Guess they didn't anticipate these bum goalie starts.

I take Buffalo moneyline after it is confirmed that Ilya Bryzgalov is in the net. Expected Scrivens for sure.
