Got away with it in Chicago but just barely. Didn't get away with it here in Detroit. Tough penalties and a dumb move by Petry be damned.
It is an absolute chicken **** way to play hockey. Oilers played an incredible first 40 minutes. But they deserved to lose the way that the team came out in the 3rd period. Krueger is such a poor coach.
I was thinking that. We got dominated for the better part of the last 2 period that game. If we didn't light emery like the 4th of july we would of lost that game.
Oh well, a loser point is def a step up for this team. I suppose you can look at like 5/6 points in the last 3 games.
Wasn't buying the 'bad coaching' narrative much before tonight but when your team is playing so well and THEN you change things up entirely ... I am NOT impressed. Made me fill ill to watch that happen.
Petry over in the corner still looking for his underwear. He easily wins the goat horns in this game.
the refs still get the 1st and 2nd stars for this game though, that 3rd period was so predictable, like others have said, its pretty obvious that the nhl has an agenda when the wings are down in the 3rd to give them every opportunity to tie it up, that was BUH-ROO-TULL. Brutal garbage reffing and one of the main reasons i havent watched a game in almost 2 months, the refs are making the game unwatchable.
I hate Detroit. I hate the blatant favouritism they get from the officials. I hate they're trapping style. Trapping in OT? Hate their guts. Pays off when you have a game breaker like Datsyuk who can win the game for you like that. Wish Hall could snipe like that, but he can't lift the puck worth a ****.
As for the Oilers. What is it now? 2-24 at home after a roadtrip, or something like that I heard? Not sure the time span of that, maybe someone can fill me in. Pathetic.
First game I've watched from start to finish in 15 games or so.
Hall is great. We need a game changer and he is almost there. Second to Datsyuk he was the best player on the ice tonight.
Petry goal was a bad break. **** happens, back luck.
Dubynk was good. Better than I remember.
I dunno where the rest of the team is though. Eberle, Nugent-Hopkins, Yak, Gags, J Schultz and Hemsky just didn't seem to show up. I know Gagner got a goal, on a nice play from Yak but other than one play I was disappointed in them.
