Home Opener!

Oilers vs. Canucks Preview + Pick (on HNIC)

John Tortorella and Dallas Eakins each lost their coaching debuts with their new teams but one of them will earn their first victory on Saturday when the Vancouver Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers.

Tortorella’s Vancouver squad looks to rebound from a 4-1 season-opening loss at San Jose.

Canucks G Roberto Luongo is 23-11-1 with three ties and a 2.38 goals-against average against Edmonton. Edmonton G Devan Dubnyk was 3-0-1 against the Canucks last season.

Tough break for Van City for tonights matchup. They’ll be without Alex Burrows.
