i've said it a bunch of times, and i'll keep saying it (as it continues to be true): krueger has NO IDEA how to run a bench ... consistently playing the wrong players at the wrong times... it's laughably bad in fact
Case example of this. Gagner gets a lot of work on a pk late in the third, is barely off the ice for 30secs then gets another shift and the Oilers get hemmed in own end and a lot of trouble for it. A tired Gagner, playing with Petrell and Paajarvi. Sigh.

Several times in the game Horc seemed to be out there a longtime and wearing down as well. Sometimes it seemed like we were rolling 2 lines. Just weird bench management. Getting guys back out there tired is seldom a good idea.
