GDT: Season Opener- Oilers vs. Wings

Well I know there was no game, but things are pretty slow on HF with no season, so Im gonna use my own starvation for hockey, and creativity to keep myself occupied.

Well this was the first game of the season, and both teams looked hungry early on. The first 10 minutes was filled with furious action, but it was evident that both sides played with nerves. Ty Conklin made a few big stops early, none bigger than the breakaway save he made on Zetterberg shorthanded. Oilers lit the lamp first on that pretty Dvorak setup to Torres who made no mistake barrying the biscuit. 4 minutes later, it was Niklas Lidstrom bringing the Wings back to evens with his floater from just inside the Oiler blueline after a terrible turnover; not really sure what Hemsky was thinking practicing his dance moves 10 ft. from his own net, but whatever he calls that dance move, if he does it again he's gonna find his arse in the pressbox for a while. After tying it up, Wings really took it to the Oilers for the ladder part of the 1st, but Oilers held the fort and were able to keep it 1-1 going into the 2nd.

Wow, who are these guys, Oilers with 3 unanswered goals in the 2nd. First it was MAB with a Bobby Orr-esque rush from his own blueline, then a beautiful give and go with Ryan Smyth, MAB eventually got the rebound and barried it. Less than 2 minutes later, it was Jani Rita and Shawn Horcoff on the 2-on-1, after some careless Detroit play in the neatral zone. then before the half way mark of the 2nd, it was Mike York on the Powerplay to make it 4-1. After the 4th goal, Oilers sat back and tried sitting on their lead, unfortunately, Detroit had other ideas, almost a carbon copy of the 1st period Detroit finished the 2nd strong and were able to get some good chances and a goal from Brendan Shanahan after some furious pressure around Conklin. 4-2 after 2.

Detroit carried their momentum into the final frame, and were able to draw 2 penalties early, Oilers killed the first one, but Datsyuk made the Oilers pay on the 2nd one, and brought Detroit to within one. Ty Conklin looked shaky and was letting alot of rebounds out in the 3rd, but was solid when he needed to be, as was the defense infront on him. A furious last 90 seconds with the goalie pulled, but Detroit was unable to tie it up. Oilers win the season opener 4-3 in a less than perfect, but exciting first game.

3 STARS:
1. Mike York (GWG and an assist)
2. Pavel Datsyuk (1G, 1A)
3. Ryan Smyth (2A)

In the Calgary Sun Eric Francis (who I think is the one of the only good hockey reporters in town - with George Johnson and Eric Duhatchek) decided that the season would go ahead, so he's playing the entire year on his XBox as the 'Lames and reporting on it with a story and the boxscore. He even is putting up league standings and top scorers. Its pretty funny.

LMHF Game Report #1

Despite the downright horrible play of one Shawn Horcoff, The Oilers managed to hang on for a victory against the geezers tonight. Even idiotic coaching couldn't cost us this one, which included playing the 4th line with the lead, and making the game close. Typical.

Ty Conklin was his usual stalwart self, this guy's gonna be good.

Hemsky had some nice moves, but is stuck on such a terrible line he's being isolated again, how sad that nothing changes.

The lack of a first line center is very apparent, this team just doesn't look organized or offensively capable.

Jani Rita won't last.

And the blue car won again.......that guy is money.

Holy crap... he did more in an imaginary game than he did in the entire second half...

Minus, of course, turning the puck over and getting knocked on his butt. He did alot of that in the 2nd half!

I tried to find it, but it might only be available in print.

Calgary lost 2-1 to Anaheim, and Edmonton hadn't played yet.

That's an awesome idea!

You know what else would be great? Sportsnet should produce games starring their "table-hockey men" teams that they use in the promos. You know, pucks blasted through chests, "let's get 'em, boys!" and "ting!" as the goal-scorer flashes his winning smile. That would be the best. I bet the games would be more exciting than real NHL hockey...

Not at all. I was being confidently optimistic.

I mean, Hemsky's dancing, the Oilers are beating the Red Wings, and MAB is turning into the next Orr. What's there not to be optimistic about?

Well bad news for the Oilers, looks like that puck Ulanov took of the shin is more serious then originally expected, he is gonna be out for 1-2 weeks with a deep bruise. Oilers have called up Jeff Woywitka, he will be in the line-up against Calgary on Sunday.
