Why so pessimistic everybody. I know we are only 5-5-1 but we have played some very good teams. Van, Col(2), Det. Those are teams that are expected to beat us yet we went 1-2-1. We historically play poor against bad teams and well against good teams. Rising to the challenge so to speak. Maybe Im blowing sunshine out my ass but I'd like to think we can skate aswell if not better than the Sens. Defense isn't close but If Salo is rebounding then maybe he can steal us a point or two. Smytty is due for a strong game and if Laraque draws in he should have alot of energy. I think the Oil should do no worse than a tie.

Muckler threatens change if Ottawa does not perform better in the next few games. In other words if Ottawa does not come out gunz-a-blazin and perform notably better(read "schu-lak!") the Oilers and the next few opponents hes going to start trading peoples friends away gee that should light a fire under them. So who thinks were going to win now?
If thats the case, the Oilers BETTER beat the Sens so Muckler will listen to any trades that Lowe offers.

The oilers really need to score first in this game if they want to win

the games from last season man they BORING, after the sens scored that first goal, BAM 0-5 Trap

the guy thats need to have a great game is Izzy, I hope York's and Dvorak's speed help as well

3-2 oilers win only if they score first and never give up the lead

I think Jason will be on the fourth line for tonites game though.
Well have fun at the Corel Centre tonight. Matty noted: "The Senators will go with backup goalie Martin Prusek, though. He's had only one start -- a 4-3 loss to Los Angeles."

So an early goal or two might unsettle the Sens!

Lets hope so, hopefully he plays like garon played alst game.

And what is with every team starting their backup goalies against the oilers. Do they know we average over 3 goals a game??

Not that i'm complaining!!

Sounds like Sarno will definitely be playing tonight, but also very likely that BG will draw back in according to MacT. I'm guessing Salmo will sit out, leaving a 4th line of Isbister/Sarno/Laraque.

Boy, I'd sure be tempted to leave that Sarno/Izzy/Salmo line together for another game and let Georges sit one more to see if it was a fluke or what... but I did read somewhere that they want BG back in since Ottawa's a bigger team than Montreal and they want Georges' size back in the lineup.

So Salmo sits out and Chimera for another game, then? What about on defence? Bergie sits out so they get Semenov's size back in the lineup there too?

Disagree. He would probably be in our top 5 most offensively creative/talented players. His only drawbacks are his size, which doesn't seem to be much of an issue so far, and of course the fact that he is not exactly Mike Peca defensively. Sarno has been working on his D since camp, and worked his butt off on the backcheck against MTL. He can't help his size, but I think he could be very effective on the PP. He showed some serious moves last game - very nearly Hemskyesque as a matter of fact. I like him. He's got Pittis written all over him.

They must have realized the bench was tipping over without him holding the one side down for 55 minutes a night.

It was a (BG) benching that was looooong over due.

Over the past years it always bugged me how BG was never even remotely considered to be benched, even after stringing 5 stinkers together. While the Reasoners, Horcoffs, Pittis's, Fergies etc. were always scrutenized as they tried to scratch and claw their way into the line up. They always had to be accouintable or they sat.

It was like BG had a "get out of jail free" card or something.

Well it finally happened, which now means MacT could do it again sometime.

The seal is broken now.

Hmmm......what answer to use

.....well maybe thats the reason the Oilers score 3 goals a game

OR

.....Well the Oilers start their backup against everyone....oh no wait, Salo's the starter.

Just Joking :p

Big save by Salo early, then a goal from hard work by isbister. Very encouraging.

Everything is off the glass and out so far tonight...

That is going to be huge for the Oilers tonight if they want to win.

It doesn't help that Brewer wasn't skating at all...

Not a good play at all.

i am a huge supporter of tommy, but for a goalie veteran.. that was just Stupid.

it kills any momentum we had, almost erases the Isbister effort, and now were back to square one.

also hopefully it wakes up the powerful Sens team.

Tommy went out and played the puck into the corner, and Hossa beat everyone to it and banked it in off Salo.

Ottawa chipped the puck into the Oilers zone where Hossa had beat both the Oilers dmen. Salo comes out a couple feet to play the puck and shoots it right into the boards on the left side. Hossa quickly grabs the puck and shoots it right into the open cage.

I think the defenceman were just as much to blame as Salo for the goal. Neither of them stuck close to Hossa at all! :mad: Man, it looked like the Senators gained a lot of momentum from that goal as well!
