Dustin Penner doesn't have a point in two games, which doesn't normally mean much, but it represents his second-longest drought of the season ... Quinn's heard nothing about the availability of goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, who isn't on the trip ...The Oilers lost their only game against the Panthers last season, 2-0 on goals by Radek Dvorak and Steve Weiss ... At last look, former Oiler Steve MacIntyre was down in the minors after coming up for a couple of games and beating up on Donald Brashear and Colton Orr.
