Go Oilers!

I'm not much into sports, but seeing my Mom grew up near Edmonton, I kinda have to cheer them on. The Edmonton Oilers (hockey) are expected to proceed into the semifinals. Right now they are playing the San Jose Sharks, and have won the last three games against them (giving the Oilers a 3-2 lead), the last being a 6-3 win. With Edmonton's defenseman Chris Pronger, and goalie Dwayne Roloson, the Sharks Joe Thornton has been completely neutralized. It'll be interesting to see how things progress. Things really started looking up for the Oilers when they cleaned out the Red Wings, and now they are still pushing on strong. It'll be interesting to see, if, as some have projected, the Oilers will pull off another Stanley Cup!

Update: The Oilers did not pull off another Stanley Cup, they lost the 7th game of the Stanley Cup to the Hurricanes. It was a close series even though the Oilers lost their main goalie (a mainstay on their team) to an injury in the first game.
