Not sure how I feel I was hoping for Tamby to get fired in the off season so I could start to cheer again.
There is no question of this teams offense. None at all, these guys will find their form. The amount of defensive gaffs though was extremely alarming. This flames team has lost almost lost everything for its offense. Tamby had better send some guys packing and make bringing a number 1 defenseman a priority.
The Edmonton Oilers took on the Calgary (F)lames in the 3rd installment of the Battle of Alberta, this season and they absolutely pounded them to the ground, 8-2!! They scored 8 unanswered goals after Calgary went up 2-0 off a pair of goals my Matt Stajan. Jordan Eberle and Nail Yakupov had a pair of goals respectively. Taylor Hall continues his excellent points streak and adds 5 points tonight! A goal and 4 helpers. RNH also added a goal and 3 assists himself. Whitney and Gagner also continue to be stellar and put up a goal and assist themselves too. Ryan Whitney also put up a Gordie Howe Hat-Trick! Dubnyk didn't get much action but he did he was good stopping 19/21 shots to help up along to Victory. Everything's just going right for the Oilers right now and let's hope it continues onto the Post-Season! We're currently sitting in 8th and in a playoff spot!!! We play the Canucks 2mrw, so let's take the positives out of this and put that into the game VS. Van. Great job boys!
To everyone that stuck with the team and didn't put a bag on.....congratulations. Time to celebrate. To those that put the bag on during the dark times......
The fact that they are on a forum posting about the Oilers should show they are sticking with the team. Avatar changes are just trying to have fun during, at the time, a bad situation. Get off your high horse.
Not only did we not roll over and die when we were down 2-0 and Brown lost his scrap, we came back and made them pay pretty well every time that they tried to goon it up. I'm glad that we only have one more game left against them this year, that said when we do play that game I hope to see Hordichuk in the lineup so that Brown won't have to answer all of their goons. Also I'd like to see Fistric in the lineup at that point.
As unreal as this feeling is, if I'm Horcoff, I'm making sure every single guy in the dressing room knows the pat on the back comes on April 27th when they are for sure in the playoffs. I'm ecstatic, but there is a ways to go still. Boys are looking great so lets keep it rolling. Who knows, we could end up in a much better position than 8th.
