It sure is refreshing to see a goalie that stays on his feet. Getting the puck back up ice quick on the PP is nice too. Goalies like Jussi help defenseman have better "wind" management 5 on 5 too.

Neds almost scored on his first shift. Got that baby away pretty quick and Osgood almost never had it.

Wouldn't that have been something?

I think he's going to have his spurts. Once he gets familiar with more of the officials and their techniques...I find he gets thrown out a fair bit too.

Yep, Stoll had a rough start on the faceoffs.. 0-5 Markkanen looked pretty decent on the shots he faced though and Nedved had a couple chances.. I was pretty impressedy Nedved's defensive play so far, he's really stuck with his man in the defensive zone and pinned him against the boards. Hopefully they score a few goals next period, I definitely don't want to go into the third period tied at 0's..

I've noticed that too... next period he'll probably go 8-1 or something...

I like the way Nedved looks out there. That line is already showing some chemistry.

The other channel has been playing Pat Quinn's "he hasn't been playing in some robotic system" clip in reference to Brian Leetch, and it's applicable to Nedved, too. He's got a skill-set and style that fits well with the Oilers. This has some potential.

After fanning on that in-close chance, Nedved REALLY looks like an Oiler.

Damn.. Smyth misses the Penalty Shot

It's funny that Smyth still wants to run the goalie.. even on a PS.

-Osgood is looking like a monster.

-Weinrich's big yellow visor is the 2nd gayest thing in the NHL, behind only that chime they play in Ottawa when the Senators get a powerplay.

Smyth to me is a guy that has too shoot on breakaways and a penalty shots not deke. He had his move picked before he even touched the puck.

Oilers are skating pretty well it looks like first one to score might have it tonight. Welcome Back Jussi!

on a side note

I have always thought Nedved would look good in Oiler silks the way he skates the style of play to me its always been a bit of a match. The Oiler colors suit him he just looks good with that jersey on, the way Petr Klima used to. If only he had Klimas jeri churl.

Weinrich's visor matches his gloves. :p

...and Ulanov just threw it up to the middle, leading to a turnover. Blech!

The shot total is a little misleading. Oilers are getting most of their shots from beyond the perimeter, while the Blues are waiting to get a little closer to Jussi before throwing it on net. I do see the logic in what Edmonton is doing, the law of averages says eventually something has to go in.

a couple of observations

as a paying customer, I love Ulanov. He makes the game very interesting (in both ends)

did I miss something ? Was there a rule change where a forward (Mellanby) is now allowed to back the goaltender into his net? Someone should post this rule change cause it has me baffled.

The Bad Igor

has finally raised his head. No less than two brutal giveaways in this one. Maybe he needs a rest or something but his game has dropped off. And Bergy may get the yips in his own end but man that kid is fun to watch. He sure doesn't care about jumping into the slot, does he?

Looks like it will take a screen or a tip to beat Osgood tonight. He has always played great against the Oil, at least the last eight years.

Three or four gems from Jussi.

I missed that guy.

I wouldn't mind holding serve vs the Blues tonight but that Col-Van-Ott threesome the Oilers have next Wed-Fri-Sun says the Oilers need the two points here because probably the most they can expect out of that three game junket is three points

Meh, we really need a goal that period.. lots of chances including gems by Horcoff, Smyth and Nedved. Wouldn't it be quite the story if Nedved came out and scored the winning goal in the third period?

the oilers are reverting back to their habit of making the opposition goaltender look like the second coming of Patrick Roy.
