Could you explain what an undisplaced fracture is.

Good gawd!

The Oilers look petrified in their own end.

I don't think I'll brag too much about Cory Cross tonight.

Horc looked good in the 1st. Too bad about his giveaway for that 3rd goal.

Ever wonder why the Oilers get so many "too many men" penaltys. I think the forwards get confused of who their linemates are. I know I do.

I see MacT is shortening the bench in the the second of back to back games.

We're toast.

Look at the bright side...maybe, just maybe, Lowe will feel more pressured to get a Comrie deal done if this team slides again.

That don't make the sun shine for me.

I don't want Lowe to feel more pressure.

More commonly known as a nondisplaced fracture. It happens when the bone fractures but still remains aligned. It's the best kind of fracture to have. Takes the least amount of time to heal. I'm not a doctor but a displaced fracture would be looking at closer to 3 weeks than day-to-day as CHED reported. Then again, the Oilers are known to have players come back WAY too early.

If i had to take a stab at an "undisplaced fracture" it would be afracture in which the bone did not move , just fractured...some fractures move and split the skin exposing bone in the worst case scenario...others are just breaks, this one likely was undisplaced wince his ankle was held in place in the boot. Just my best guess though.

Another shift, and a goal. Smart neutral zone puck control and a good hard shot with Hemsky and Smyth as decoys.

Ya 4-2.

Anyone see Thorton hooking Smith the whole way as he went up the ice on that drive?

Bloody hypocrite.

the line obviously has some chemistry...three goals in two nights is no coincidence, they're doing something right.

If MacT decides to split them up again and insert Horcoff in the middle, somebody ought to slap him in the back of the head.

So everything will be just fine....

Hell if I know, ask the Snet guys 'cause they said it.

I think the word 'fractured' is the key thing here...

When he's in his role, he's just fine. Keep him in his role! Smart play by York, Horcoff went to the right place, it's in the net.

4-3. KEEP GOING!!!!

What a waste....

Those blown chances early killed us, woulda been a different hockey game.

Horrid PK tonight.

What are we doing passing behind our own net with less than a minute to go??? We haven't scored a 6-on-5 goal in so long I can't even remember.

Probably didn't deserve this one, but it woulda been big if we coulda came back.

The road trip that coulda been continues......

First thing Horcoff did right tonight!25% inthe faceoff circle!It's already been proven that Smyth and Hemsky are alot better when they play with someone that doesn't give the puck away every time he touches it. I haven't seen Horcoff win a single battle along the boards this year. I hope something gets done soon as we are without our top 3 centerman from last year now.

MacT has got to call a timeout with under one minute left in the game. They didn't and as a result the Oil never got set up. Tough loss but positive takeaway this team continues to claw its way back into games.

A few points:

I really like the way the Oilers battle back. I think that's a great trait this team has and it's especially important since this teams also tends to collapse for 3-4 minutes in a game.

That being said, I don't see this team making the playoffs for the following reasons:

Terrible PP: Yeah, it's a reccuring thing on these boards but geez. Boston was moving the puck around like it's automatic. These spend the entire PP in the Oilers Zone. The Oilers can't even setup.

Terrible PK. I don't care what anyone says, it can't be automatic like it was tonight when the other teams gets a PP.

Faceoffs: This is a real problem and leads directly to the unsuccessful PP.

I think that these are issues that absolutely need to be corrected. The good thing is that they still have lots of time to do so.

Oh yeah, it's pretty sad when Torres has to be double shifted (York-Dvo) and (Smyth-Hemsky). The more K.lo waits to do something with Comrie, the fans should and will grow more and more impatient. Even a number 2 centre on the 1st line would help.

Yeah, he's awful. Losing draws to Joe Thornton, that little biddy centerman the Bruins send out once in awhile, or Rolston who is a freaking bull.

I'm beginning to hope Horcoff gets dealt as much as the rest of you.

the PP is sad, the PK is...... non-existent. (Why is Craig Simpson here again?)

Here's an interesting stat ..... Boston beat Edmonton 50-16 in the faceoff dept.

Thats not funny or scary. That just shouldnt be.

In fairness to MacT, though, he has a left winger (Smyth), 2 rookies (Sarno, Stoll) and Horcoff and York to take the faceoffs. Horcoff seemed to be taking a ton of them tonight, which I found surprising (I think Stoll is a better faceoff guy, maybe I'm wrong).

Anyway, points to the loss of Reasoner as being a very big deal for this club.

i cant believe what i'm hearing lowetide you hoping Horcoff gets dealt.


btw MacT apparantly didnt call the timeout coz the ref blew for a stoppage in play anyway, or so they said on CHED.

What I meant was that it's ridiculous to blame Horcoff tonight. He performed poorly in the faceoff circle, because he took alot of faceoffs against Thornton and (I believe) Rolston, who are historically very good. However, since Horcoff was taking more than his usual share of faceoffs, we have to assume that MacT preferred him over Stoll, Smyth, Sarno, York etc.

Meanwhile, Horcoff's errant pass ends up in the net, but there is little mention of the good things he did, including the goal.

I've come to the conclusion Oiler fans have an inner need to pick at one player, much like the runt of the litter. Sooo, Horcoff is this year's Poti.

I'd rather see him dealt that see boobirds do a Poti on him.

I guess we'll see.

Horc had a decent night. Don't listen to Copperaddict. Just ignore him. Reason and common sense rarely comes out of his posts concerning Horcoff of late.
