I think that we'll all be disappointed and see Potter tonight. Krueger's M.O. has been to stick with the lineup that won the previous game so i expect the same although this is the first back to back of the season so hopefully, i'm wrong and Fistric draws in tonight.
I think the Oilers will play well, they always seem to play pretty well in San Jose even in the losses so even though they'll probably lose, i expect an entertaining affair which is much needed after the game last night which set hockey back for years. This will be a big test to see how far the Oilers have come.
Yakupov scores a goal, nods head to teammates, taps gloves, HF explodes with disgust and outrage.
fair assessment, i have heard from numerous legit sources that the team doesnt like yaks cellys cause he high fives to hard and squeezes too tight in hugs. this is a huge issue going forward and i hope the team addresses it.
Woah! The game starts 04:30 CET, awesome! Getting up around that time is not that bad, becuse i wills till get a lot of sleep. Too bad that Sharks first line will **** oilers tho , but now is not the time to be negative, this is a good game time
We need our defensively strong D-men in tonight, it's San Jose for crying out loud. I am a big Krueger fan but if he doesn't swap out an offensive guy like Potter for a guy who's strong in front of his own net like Fistric, then I don't know what is going on. Let the forwards provide the offense, we need to lock down the front of the net against a very big Sharks top 6.
Fistric in is an absolute no brainer. Not putting him into the line up would be Krueger's worst decision thus far as a coach.
Please somebody explain to Yaks he's allowed to shoot the puck from prime scoring areas, ie: the slot. Maybe Bulin can, in Russian.
I noticed last night he had a chance to do so and opted to pass to 89 instead.
Not all of your goals have to be rebound baseball swings!
