His angles were perfect, actually...and he was challenging quite high. They were both just fantastic shots by goal scorers. Don't kid yourself. For crying out loud the Dubnyk hate is totally ridiculous. He's saved 95% of those this year.
No one is hating him. He's had a very strong game. The Couture goal was just a mistake.
If his angle was perfect it wouldn't have gone in. Given his size and talent he should only be getting beat be perfect shots (Couture's wasn't), deflections, and when he is forced to move laterally.
Glad to see krueger calling the timeout earlier this time around rather that letting the sharks light us up for five in ten minutes. Proud of the boys for pushing back and answering with a goal. We need to improve on our faceoffs if we're gonna get the equalizer. Faceoffs are the weakest part of Nuge's game IMO
Hemmer's never been a Yakupov when he's had the puck. He always has a kind of lackadaisical posture when he has possession. I see him doing a solid job back-checking and I haven't seen any glaring turnovers coming from him either.
Not getting the hate.
The kid line needs to produce or be broken up. If we're calling out a forward in this game, it's Eberle. He needs to make better passes.
Pretty angry with Pavelski celebrating his goal like he did. What is he thinking pumping his arm like that? He should try to act like he has scored before. He clearly went out of his way to embarrass the Oilers by celebrating like that.
Seriously though I think the Oilers are not doing too badly. I was halfway expecting them to get run out of the rink tonite.
