> Swedish Delight (no, not porn): The Sedins each have 1G, 2A against Edmonton this season which stands to reason as they both have 53 points over the course of their careers against the Oil (Daniel: 27G, 26A & Henrik: 12G, 41A). Creeeepy.
> The Kids Are Hanging in: The Oilers have lost four of their last five (interestingly their one win was also teeing off on the Jackets) but they held their own against the Sharks and Kings in their last two, only losing by a single goal to each. Gagner Whitney both have five points in their last four games (1G, 4A). Smid, Penner and Cogliano each have two points in two games against Vancouver this season. Khabby and Dubnyk have taken the losses.
> Impress Your Friends With Knowledge!: Cap-friendly Raffi Torres is now the third highest goal scorer on the team (10) and 50% of his production has come at the expense of his former clubs: a hat trick against the Oilers in November and a two goal effort in Columbus right before the Christmas break.
