Dora Strikes again!

Dora the explorer is becoming a bigger pest to NHL teams than even Esa Tikkanen ever was.

The pre school explorer has once again caused scheduling difficulties in the Stanley Cup playoffs, this time offering up a possible Game Six conflict for the Oilers who would have liked to have returned home for the pivotal game if required.

For Dora it's deja vu all over again, the Exploring one bounced the Ottawa Senators out of Scotiabank Place in the first round (the Sens of course were bounced themselves in the second round) and now she threatens to do the same to the Edmonton Oilers.

Dora has sold over 5,000 tickets to the pre school set and their parents so it will be interesting to see what arrangement Rexall Place comes up with to pacifiy all concerned. More than likely the Oilers would prefer not to need a place to play by the mid June period of time, not needing to go to game six and beyond would probably be the pre-ferred route for the Oilers.

Rather than have to play a game six, the Oilers might prefer to bring the Stanley Cup to the show, share it with Dora and her pre-school gang. They might even get a louder cheer than Dora gets when she arrives in town.
