yeah it was like there wasn't enough oxygen in the dressing room in the 2nd intermission

but if you have watched oiler hockey for the past 15 years you would have seen this coming when the 2nd intermission started.

I think it's worse..

Even when there does look like there's chemistry he changes the lines so that they look more "responsible." Seriously, he just changed the lines while his team was dominating the shot clock and winning 2-0. What kind of message are the players going to get from that? Probably something like "Oh ****, we're in trouble, we better be careful not to give anything up."

He doesn't even have to say anything when he's pulling **** like this. Yakupov is benched, we better be careful!

Ken Hitchcock has been available so many times and the Oilers never seem interested. Is it because of his Dallas years and the old boys club not wanting him in?

If so they should all be fired and Hitchcock named GM and coach if St. Louis is dumb enough to ever let him go

I guess you haven't played hockey before because these types of plays happen, it's a fast game. The puck came out quick, he was trying to bat it away from the net and he couldn't read the angle fast enough and it ended up in the net. An accident.

The way Krueger is coaching over and over without fail is the reason this team is loosing. Not because Petry made a bad read that resulted in an own goal.

Unfortunately we've been trying to sit on leads on all season, and is it working? Not at all. What are we 0 wins when leading after 2 periods?

I've only watched a handful of Bruins games, not once in those have I seen Seguin dominate like Hall did tonight. Hall has that Toews factor (not as skilled), can't describe what it is but it's easy to see him hoisting Lord Stanley.

It's worse than that.

Because we have lines that are gelling and playing well, but Krueger breaks them up every 3rd period to inject Smyth, Petrell and now Mike Brown.

Because the Oilers would need to clone Horcoff half a dozen times for Hitchcock to have any success.

Glencross gets a hattrick tonight to. We could use him badly.

Jones Glencross and Brodziak would of been a devistating third line.

What the **** happened to him.
He looks horrible. Absolutely horrible. He's my favorite player on the team, and I have to be completely honest about his play. He's a complete non-factor right now. He's the oldest of the "kid line"; he's not 18 or 19 anymore, he's 22 going on 23. That's not old, but it's old enough that he should be more mature than this. Wake the **** up. What a useless POS he is right now. I'm infuriated with his 'not giving a F' ways. I thought he was a different guy and player than this. It's gutting to see...

Yeah and when you make them in a real hockey game you feel like an idiot. Because surprise, surprise scoring on your own net is an idiotic thing to do.

Hmmm, that's the way to end a winning streak!

Nashville didn't look good against the Flames tonight. But the Red Wings didn't look good when the played the Flames either...

I blame Tambellini for hiring the wrong coaches.
This is the guy who was the main assistant on Renney's staff and who is best known for his defensive style with the Swiss team. Did he all of a sudden think that Krueger was going to morph his style into an attacking style? Krueger is simply coaching the way he always has.
This is all on Tamby. He built the team as a fast skating, skilled team yet he keeps employing passive, defensive minded coaches.

What we needed was Bruce Boudreau.

Yeah and this loss is not on Petry. No way it should be.

Hockey is a game of mistakes.

It goes up to Kevin Lowe, then up to Katz really.

Lowe made another bad move in hiring Tambo.

Katz obviously doesn't give a **** about the Oilers hockey aspect of owning the Oilers, so he'll never realize to fire Lowe.


I blame Katz.

Problem is the Oiler org thinks being a nice guy who tows the company line = talented coach/manager/scout. The only person who has not fit that mold in the last few years was Quinn. And they fired him because of it.

At least things are back to normal.

Horcoff back on the 1st line, back leading all forwards in ice time by about 3 minutes and 35% on the dot.

As for Krueger, this team has MacT's finger prints all over it. As Kruger said when asked why they were not adding another coach. "I have MacT to go to for advice when I need it."

@GenePrincipe: Ralph Krueger "We're really pleased with the way we played defence in the 1st 2 periods. The life in their lineup came on their first goal"
@GenePrincipe: Ralph Krueger "We never had the plan to sit back. They ended up with some offensive zone time. We ended up falling back then sitting back."
@EdmontonOilers: "The breakdowns that led to their goals were out of character when you look at how well we played up to that point." - Coach Krueger

Wow i was pretty close with my joke
