We got shut down by an older, bigger, stronger team. Again.
That can be attributed primarily to coaching, and Renney's refusal to utilize the little bit of toughness and grit that management provided for him to use specifically for games like this.
I agree.. the Oilers are usually notoriously bad against bigger veteran defensive clubs like Calgary and Minnesota. Its pretty frustrating watching them continually lose to these types of teams.
But then that very long road trip from hell in November hasn't helped matters much either. I think i've come to accept the fact that this season will continue to be full of ups and downs.. times where this team looks all world one night and then like a 30th place team the next.
