EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings have come
back to earth a little bit lately. Meanwhile, the Edmonton
Oilers are glad just to return to Rexall Place.
Having played the fewest home games in the league, the Oilers
kick off a three-game homestand Thursday when they take on the
suddenly struggling Red Wings.
Edmonton has played just six of its first 20 games here, going
3-2-1 in those contests. The Oilers are coming off a seven-game
road trip in which they went 4-3, concluding with a 5-2 victory
vs. Colorado on Monday.
