Hall had 9 shots but the important thing is that he had 9 shots. I saw several times where he held back to get a shot on net and a rebound.

A skill that our team doesn't seem to possess.

I thought that was the best all-around game for the Oilers this season.

Didn't end well of course, and they didn't bury their many chances but the effort was there. Continue playing like that and the better results will come.

10 games like that one in Columbus they get 1 win. 10 games like this one they probably get 8 or 9 wins.

Great game from Hall. I thought Petry had his best game of the year as well.

Eberle so many chances and just couldn't connect.

Belanger I thought had an overall pretty strong game. 78% on the dot as well.

Petrell looked good and even Potter wasn't bad.

Fistric I thought had another solid game.

Gagner worked hard but no results like the rest of the team.

MPS and Harti were less noticeable but not bad.

Yakupov I thought tried hard and just made some rough rookie mistakes. It's hard to get down on him as we all know he's still learning at this level of hockey but he definitely had some rough patches tonight but you can see he wants to work his butt off to contribute... he just seems like a player that's still working against the grain much of the time and needs to develop a better feel for the flow and dynamic of NHL level hockey.

It will come but honestly he is going to be a liability for a lot of games... comes with the territory when you are a rookie.

Dubnyk I thought played well for a guy that let in 4 goals. Some will say he played a poor game... I don't think so. Not his best outing but really can't fault him on flukey goals. The Jagr goal was tough to stop but he could have had that one. The guy has to let in a decent goal once in a while though and the Oilers weren't winning this tonight no matter what Dubnyk did. Luck just wasn't on their side.

Again... no complaints about the team effort and work as a whole... just the result wasn't there. I'm hoping this effort leads to more like this though because that's what it takes to be competitive and not just rely on your goalie every night.

I hope Krueger keeps the top line together it is working so well. Seth Jones would look great in Oiler silks.

the 12-year old Dallas coach is 6-0 against us...wow

this was karma for beating CBJ..we not business winning that game like we shouldn't have lost this one

Oilers cannot finish to save their lives...if one of Ebs/Nuge score we are off to the races but both can't buy a goal

play like this all year and we win more games then we lose...simple as that

I think i need to rewatch this game because i'm not sure how you guys can say that he was terrible.
Great game? I watched the game closely, iso'ed on Nuge, he did next to nothing and created nothing. Never had a scoring chance in the whole game from what I saw. This isn't being enough people.

Nuge is telegraphing plays, most teams have a firm book on what he's trying to do almost everytime and right now is looking about as effective as Omark.

One of the real problems is when you haven't scored in 25games or so nobody even has to take you, just cover the guys you're trying to pass to. You open up offence when you can actually score yourself and represent a threat.

Nuge right now has a longer cold streak then any forward on this club and completely unacceptable playing on a topline with huge PP minutes.

This guy is not a shutdown D and not even close. Gets completely owned, bent over, and schooled on the last Dallas goal as he flails away getting beat to the net.

Thats our shutdown D isolated folks. Without J Schultz, a rookie carrying him it would be ugly. No accident that Tambo covers this botched trade by pairing the best D we've had in years with N Schultz to try to pretty up the pig.
You have no idea of what you talking about in regards to Nick Shultz. None. Zippo. Nadda. lol

You couldn't have been watching Nuge that closely if you completely missed the big chance he had in the last period.

Wow, we must be watching different games. Nuge was making great plays along the boards and down low. He was in good position all night

This team has too many similar players. Hall, Hemsky, Yakupov. Eberle, Gagner, RNH.
Gagners they only player making effective passes on this team right now.

The two passes to Yak, to Hemsky, To Eberle, and a great pass to Petry. Some of the more dangerous scoring chances of the night. He's not being similar, he's being better, consistently. Note as well is he was saddled with Potter and Fistric most of the night. Any time Gagner was trying to pass back to the point it was like playing a game of find Waldo..

I understand Replacement's frustration completely. Nugent-Hopkins has got to start converting. Simple as that.

Guess you need a new prescription then. Lehtonen was the difference maker, stopped him point blank when the game was still 2-1 in the third.

Nuge is doing fine. His puck recovery and play in his own end is amazing considering he's 19 and this is his second year of pro hockey. Heads up pass to spring Hall a few times, unlucky to be robbed of a goal. At some point, it's got to go in for him.
Look at Phil Kessel, took over 80 shots before he scored this year. It happens. Nuge is fine.

No I think it is the other way around. Zero points this year, -3 on the game, -1 on the season he is 'supposed' to be some great shut down stalwart. Sorry he isn't.

100% agree. Nuge should be on the third line or PB

Should've drafted landeskog, and galchenyuk, traded eberle last year when his stock was high, the highest it will ever be ..... trade gagner, and hemsky now while their stock is high!!!

I thought that particular save was overstated by DeBrusk. Lehtonen was stretched out to make the stop before RNH even got the puck.

What did you see when he totally misread the play, lost an easy cover, lost positioning, and bent over the rest of the way.

Thats getting completely schooled by a no name career minor league player that had scored 3 NHL goals in his career and got an out of body experience playing against the loose coverage of N Schultz.

Remember when Mick Mgeough screwed us out of a goal on the faceoff violation? Then some time later Stefan missed the open net and Hemsky scored to tie it?

These things have a funny way of working out even, so enjoy getting scored on by black magic, Dallas.
