Arcobello is showing a lot of compete lately. Destroying in the faceoff circle, battling hard for them, only problem he has is that he has no finish right now, and that might just be nerves from playing in the big leagues.

If they played with that desire every game, they win a lot more.

Shouts out to Gordon and Acrobello. Unsung heros.

Nice stat line for Arcobello tonight: team leading +2, 1 assist (for the moment, not sure he'll keep it), 80% on 10 faceoffs

When was the last time we had all our guys over 50%? With 3/4 way over?

I started watching by the third so I think we played a great game. Very aggressive. This was obviously not the case in the first two, but since I never saw them they don't exist.

Hopkins goal - Good job knowing where to be.
Ference goal - Lucky goal, but I'll take it. You're supposed to shoot in that situation.
Perron goal - Wicked laser of a shot. Brodeur didn't have a chance in hell at stopping that one.
Hall goal - Was being covered by a left handed d-man who was being forced to cover the right side because Volchenkov wandered over to the opposite side to fight for the puck. Still. Good on Hall.

Both of the Oilers' shootout goals showed an obvious flaw in Marty's shootout habits. Still, both of those shots were sweet backhands.

After the first period I was sure that we were going to lose.
After the second I saw a little more life in us, but nothing was happening. Jersey's defensive play was doing a great job of shutting us down.
In the third period we were doing exactly what we were supposed to be doing from the beginning of the game, and I don't mean scoring goals. Edmonton was fighting for the puck like they really wanted it. All of the players were skating and hitting harder. Our puck possession in the third period was downright sick too.

Really happy that we won, but we beat a pretty weak team tonight. Was saying it all last year too that we'd be a playoff team if we played 45-50 minutes just like we played in the third period today. Need to stop coming in flat.

Thing about Yakapov is he does SO MUCH in the offensive zone, but I can see why coaches are scared of him in the Oilers own zone. He is so reactionary, he waits until things start to happen before he tries to contain them, rather than proactively preventing passes and shots. Every time you see him in his own end, he's hunched over desperately scrambling to try to catch up to his man with the puck a half stride to late.

This can and will be fixed, but you can see the immaturity in his game relative to the vets and the more seasoned young guys.

I'm guessing you'd have to look back to

Horcoff
Stoll
Peca
Reasoner (he was the 4th line centre at the time right?)

If they played more often like they did in the third, they would be scoring more, defending better and people would realize the goalie thing isnt as big as theyve been thinking.

I say this in losses too, but it's only one game. Happy it turned out the way it did though. This team just needed some confidence... lets hope they can carry this over against Montreal.

Hard work does pay off, you just need to actually walk the walk for the rewards.

As great as RNH looked, I don't like the idea of a forward playing 28 minutes a night. That's some junior hockey ****.

Was disappointed when Mact only added one established bottom 6/3rd liner during the offseason, and it'll be an issue later on.

But there is absolutely no way anyone could be disappointed in the signing of Gordon. He's everything Horcoff wasn't, aggressive, physical, and a bear in puck battles.

Once Gagner is back, we'll see a much more balanced attack with 3 actual NHL centers on the roster.

I have noticed from the past few games that you're often the first one defending Dubnyk. Good on you for having faith.
