EDMONTON - This playoff chase isn';t big enough for the two of them -- which is fine, because, by the end of the night, one of them probably won't be in it anymore.

There’s that much at stake this evening when the Edmonton Oilers and Phoenix Coyotes, both gasping for air in the deep Western Conference water, face off for a two-point life preserver at Rexall Place.

Whoever grabs it stays alive in the playoff race and whoever leaves empty handed will almost certainly be sleeping with the fishes.
