I'm not following it either. Would be nice if people explained a little when they same something nebulous like "Is RNH injured" Um, like for instance what gives you that impression. Maybe some background beyond 3 words..
****, what is this, twitter
I could even understand someone saying something like "Is RNH's hand/shoulder/left nut injured because he's missing the net a lot" but yeah, just the random speculation is just odd.
maybe because I was busy having half a coronary I didn't properly recognize what was going on. I was chewing my fingers off up to the knuckles as Clowe skated in.
Man that was a tense game. These are like playoffs.
Yeah, and the way they have the mics set in that rink is awful. They are behind the boards, so every hit sounds like someone got destroyed on TV but you can't hear the whistle on TV. Even Louie made a comment about how he could hear the whistle.
I noticed at least 4 or 5 whistles I just didn't hear tonight because of the mic set up in that rink.
He's pretty tough so I imagine he'll be back in Colorado.
I imagine that teams are going to be extra careful with players this year because of the condensed schedule. DeBrusk was giving the impression that Horcoff was just a little sore after the Doan hit and they kept him out just so he could rest up.
lol, just read the 25 hate posts about Gagner's OT shift and not getting the puck out. Whats laughable is how many of these posts appear to be dismissive of Gagner. As if he's been Horcoff or something. Newsflash he's been the hardest working forward on the club.
Gagner wanted to play the puck back behind or around the net. Curiously no puck support arriving there as he only has one direction to put the puck.
What a laugh that people were blaming Gagner and ready to pin a loss on him already and the Sharks didn't score on the PP. Get those fingers on the Gagner hate button though.
Remember to get your hate Gagner votes in 20 times/game. Wouldn't wanna miss out.
****, sometimes I wonder if we're all fans of the same club.
I love Gagner, and I always have. But that was a dumb play to turn the puck back. If you don't have an option with it, at least chip it out. Don't turn back around and then get stripped of the puck. I will forgive him because he has been excellent so far this year. But that doesn't mean it wasn't a bad play.
Good game folks. You had me scared for sure. I wasn't sold on the Oilers going into the season but you guys played really well today. Hall in particular, damn I'd kill to have a player like that on the Sharks, a real game-breaker. I felt so bad for poor rookie Matty Irwin having to defend that Hall goal, welcome to the NHL bud.
Anyway, I honestly think that the Oilers are a playoff team. Also, I maintain that Dubnyk is a solid NHL goaltender and if the Oilers can gain a solid #2C, a defensive #4D guy, and maybe a tough middle-six forward they're contenders in my eyes.
I was at the game tonight............what a fun game to be at. I thought we played well in the 1st period. Dubnyk had to make that save on the breakaway but other then that a solid 1st. 2 mental lapses in the 2nd put us down 2-0 quickly. Yakupov/Whitney to blame on that 2nd goal.
Lots of heart to come back and tie it up. I saw that tying goal up close and personal and that was a nice effort by Eberle and Hall. Dubnyk gets full marks for his performance tonight, he was outstanding.
Being at the game live, Gagner was terrible at getting the puck out as was Hemsky. So many chances to get rid of the puck and they didn't.
In the shootout I would have made Hemsky shoot 1st, Eberle 2nd, Gagner 3rd.
To get 3 out of 4 points on the road on back to back nights against Phoenix and San Jose is pretty solid. Get a win on Saturday vs Colorado!
Good game, Dubnyk passed a big test and played well. Still gives out too many big rebounds for my liking, but he is learning. Thought there should of been a call against SJ towards the end of the game, but once again the refs seem to have selective eye sight.
SJ dominated on the FO circle, but the Oilers over came that. I have to agree on Whitney, it looks like he's not getting any better. Hopefully Krueger will not place Potter in the next game.
Just wanted to stop by and say great game. Every time Hall has the puck in the offensive zone I cringe because I think he's going to score . Schultz look pretty good as well that cross ice feed looked almost Thornton-esque.
If Dubnyk plays that well all year you guys will definitely make the playoffs!
