If I'm MacT:

Horcoff is benched for the remainder of the game...he's doing nothing.
First line becomes RPM.
Second becomes TYD
Third becomes ISS
Smyth and Hemsky spell Torres and Salmelainen.

Speaking of Tony. That was a ballsy play he made on Prusek, intentionally stumbling and taking out the goalie. He took a skate in the face for his efforts, and his linemates couldn't capitalize. He could be one of those Linseman types maybe...I like what I've seen so far.

YAY. RPM. 3-2

Moreau scores. Still the best line we have out there. Where would we be as a team without them?

Stevey had a HUGE chance to score a make-up goal there. Not normally gonna miss that one.

Well, Hemsky is doing just as well as Horcoff out there and Smyth not that much better (besides that post he hit). They are ALL playing pretty poorly.

I don't think Tony did that on purpose. He blew an edge and fell over IMO. :p

Very Brewer-esque play by Cross at the end of the period.

Oilers can't make any mistakes in their own end in the last 20 minutes, plain and simple.

What bothers me is Bergeron hasn't made one of his classics.........yet.

Let's hope the old adage of "the team that scores the first goal of the game usually wins" stands true tonight.

I'll be curious to see how much ice time the 'first' line gets in the 3rd...their collective ***** got STAPLED to the bench for the last 5 minutes of the 2nd, and deservedly so.

They're a collective -8 tonight. :mad:

RESILIENCE. This Oiler team is showing mega-character in coming back from a two goal deficit, on the road, and against a Stanley Cup Contender. Ethan Moreau is a warrior. Never quit attitude and full out on every shift. He sets the tone for our most effective line which has seen a huge effort by Pisani.

Simple play. Outwork the other team on everyshift. And nothing fancy - put it on net and crash in search of garbage. Where this team could have folded after two soft goals, they have instead rallied and can well win this game. Big effort. Led by character players.

I think they are playing poorly because Horc has no vision whatsoever. He is struggling mightily right now...at least I see effort from Smyth in other areas...Ultimately, Horcoff drags the entire line down, and as a line, they are playing poorly tonight. The best way to get Smyth and Hemsky going again is to pair them with the rejuvenated Izzy...which would mean double-shifting him. Given the effort he's shown tonight, consistent physical play (he was like the 5th man and came flying into one scrum) and a goal has earned it. Maybe Smyth is better as a C lol.

On the replay, I was watching closely at the way that "fall" unfolded. We all know how good of a skater Tony is...there was nobody near him, and when I watched him on the play, it seemed he threw his left leg out as he was coming in, causing him to lose the edge and go down. The timing was perfect, and you could see him direct himself towards Prusek on the ice. I figure the bailout was intentional...but regardless, any player on the ice in that position would probably try to take out the goalie too.

So...what I am seeing lately is we have a team that doesn't have to rely on one line for scoring. We have three goals against the Ottawa Senators, and none have come from our top two lines. When one line is going but not scoring (TYD) and the 1st line is just...dysfunctional, it is nice to be able to count on some goals.

Maybe in our search for one second line we ended up with three of them?

Whenever they are on the ice, they get dominated by the other line. Jacques Martin is making a point of it to get the Alfredsson/Hossa line out against Ryan Smyth, Hemsky and Horcoff. Our Oiler trio isn't really doing much to stop the attack there.

Hemsky is making poor decisions with the puck. He's trying to hard and attempting to make passes right through the waiting Ottawa defense. He's not even getting in a position to receive the puck. Even Smyth isn't being smart out there.

I just feel it isn't fair to put all the blame for the lack of success for the 1st line on Horcoff's shoulders. I don't think Isbister is going to help if Smyth and Hemsky are continuing to play like they are.

I love the kid, but he needs to bury one of these breakaways.

That's the third time I've missed a rush and possible scoring chance for a close up of a guy going to the bench. Why would I want to watch Jason Smith's face as he skates off the ice when Radek Dvorak is skating full speed at the net? The director really needs a talking too.

So Horcoff goes to the wing.......and immediately the Sens isolate that side and victimize him for scoring chances. Get this guy away from our skill players!!!
