Nucks were playing their A game, at home, and had the edge all night over a tired Oilers club. That the refs handed the nucks the opening goal on a brutal series of calls was the straw.

Once the Nucks got the lead in this one they were able to play rope a dope the rest of the way.

Really bad execution by Oilers tonight though. A stubborn determination the whole game to force plays instead of be patient and work the cycle. We needed to possess the puck a lot more and be content with that. We rarely were.

Hemsky, awful night. N Schultz? ****, why is this guy here? Useless all night, typified by Gagner working the puck well in the 3rd, evading 3 Canucks, retaining puck, after hard work makes a routine pass back to the point which N Schultz, half asleep flubs...That play typified the execution on the night.
