Can you say: "freaking perfect road game"?

Solid definition of what I just watched. As stated above, the solid systems play was amazing - all zones.

Good for you, boys. One more.

Speaking of "not" calling it like it is, on the other hand, I just browsed past the Whimperhawks' Facebook page, and it is Comedy central there. Just about every comment is some kind of disparaging remark towards the officiating; I've never seen that many officiating complaints in one place, Facebook or otherwise. "You can't beat the Oil Queens and the refs!" "Refs lost this game!" "No penalty shot called!" One user even posted the WHL Head Office address for fans to write in complaints...

I love how they're all totally oblivious to the fact that their own beloved Hawks have gotten away with more than their fair share of antics as well.

EDIT: This just in: the Hawks are already selling tickets for Game 7 and announcing the starting time like it's a done deal. I get that you want to fill the building and sell as many tickets as fast as you can...but still. Now I'm cheering even harder for the Oil Kings.

While I understand the method behind that, that's still rather ridiculous. I couldn't get game six tickets until they won game 4.

Isn't it reasonable that tickets go on sale for a possible game 7 when there is a one-day turn around? Let's not make something out of nothing. However, I hope it helps motivate the boys.

Reffing has been questionably both ways; we've certainly gotten away with a bunch, but they have too. Case in point, the play where Corbett was hooked into the boards by Leier and smashed his head on the ice/lower boards. Or, the play (game 1 I think?) where Dumba hooked Petryk, causing him to fall and turn over the puck to the 'Hawks, who went in and scored. If they're (Portland fans) whining about biased calls they're kidding themsleves- it's been consistently terrible for both clubs.

Anyways, an outstanding game by the Kings. Again, hats off to the defensive corps. They're simply stifling the transition game of the 'Hawks. Jarry was an absolute monster. Eller had an insane game. Honestly, the entire team dedicated themselves to playing the perfect playoff road game and they executed. Hopefully there's a boisterous crowd on Sunday to cheer the boys on and help them towards a second championship! Should be fun!

that, and how the high-flying Hawks, who had scored 5 goals in every playoff game, have scored a whopping 4 goals in 3 games (one being fluke off of Reinhart's chest), have been completely shutdown, and indeed, schooled in sound, 3 zones hockey.

Laxdal and crew deserve a lot of credit for the adjustments they have made.
They have taken way their criss-cross play at the red-line, have kept them to the outside, just to name a few of the Hawks favourite plays. Brilliant coaching.

Awesome. I was thinking that the boys were headed for golf. Now clearly, they are in the driver's seat. Wish that I could make the game!

Awesome for the team. I'd love to go tomorrow but once again genius planning has the Oil Kings playing Game 6 at 4:00 in the afternoon on Mothers Day.

Hasn't this exact same situation happened before?

They need to finish up fast so the champ has at least some rest prior to the Memorial Cup.

The Cheaterhawks will be hard to put down. The Kings have to play the same game tomorrow and Jarry and Reinhart have to play great.

3 options:

1. Brunch with Mother, then game
2. Game, then later dinner with Mother
3. Haul Mother off to the game

Last OKs home game. Mother will understand. If not, get new Mother.

Wait guys I have a question; I'm going to the game tomorrow and I was wondering if it was alright if I went in my Oilers jersey? I haven't gone to an Oil Kings game in over 5 years so I have no idea if it would be considered alright or 'proper'

I would say wear whatever you want. There's absolutely nothing wrong with wearing an Oilers jersey to an Oil Kings game

Lots of people wear Oilers jerseys, so It's hardly a big deal. Of course, you're always welcome to buy an Oil Kings jersey at the game if you want to

I wouldnt. You dont want any of the Oiler's suck to rub off on the Oil Kings. You dont want to Bartman the team like that.

Just wear regular street clothes.

If you had told me before this series that the boys would be up 3-2 coming home for game six, I'd have laughed in your face.

It's amazing that Laxdal and the boys have been able to do what Kelowna couldn't. It quite frankly baffles me.

me at the last game

I just spent yesterday with my mom and my daughter visited my son at work and will
be ditching the husband today ( so he can visit his mother) and going to the game with my brother ( we share season tickets)

Are you trying to say it doesn't take 82 games to teach a new defensive system? I'm really confused here...
