Each and every further loss furthers to piss me off. That being said, I thought the Oilers played better last night than the night before.
That 5 minutes of overtime was the most exciting 5 minutes of hockey the Oilers have played in ages. Too bad they couldn't get it done.
I was at the game and that OT was jaw-dropping balls-out pond hockey - great fun and goaltending at both ends. Good to see the Oil go toe-to-toe with 'one of the best teams in the league (TM)' Except for a few line-mismatches, the Sedins were kept to the outside and the Oil showed surprising poise and patience all game long. For all the rust, Whitney seemed to calm things down a lot - he upgrades the D to merely bad (from horrendously aweful).
When I bought these tix in September, I thought this would be a pivotal divisional matchup...
