Got to give Roloson credit - he stood on his head and good choice by MacT to put him between the pipes tonight.
Cole is an absolute workhorse out there, and beyond that I'm still trying to figure out what was going through Gagner's head.

I know Roloson finally does good and the boys let him down.
Maybe this is a start for Roloson to get picked up?

This team has to start scoring goals. We needed two points tonight before the big road trip.

As for Roloson, he looked like he did during the big playoff run.

Also the guys that are getting the big paychecks need to start playing like it.

An offensive juggernaut.....the Oilers are not.

I doubted starting Roloson. Now I wonder if he should start thursday too.

3 periods of absolute joy to watch, even without any scoring. Finally 60 minutes of consistent effort. Thomas and Roloson put on a clinic.

Nilsson and Hemsky need to be kept together, man are they awesome together.

Tough break in OT, especially for Roli. Bad turn over by Gagner. Stop the no look passes into no man's land!

Cant win if you cant score. Oilers looked to be skating in mud in the 3rd. Bruins were a flying all game long.

A fantastic start (in the W column) is now long forgotten. 7 game roadie coming up. Not good.

And oh yeah, still yet to score a goal on a PPV.



In fairness to Hall, I've wanted to throw a waterbottle at Eakins all season.

Holy crap that was an entertaining game. Haven't like the results of the past 2 games, but I have seen lots of good things from the team.

Roloson had a spectacular game. Moreau is looking faster than ever. Cole belongs on the right side. Hemsky + Nilsson could be something special. Staios...now coming from me this is HUGE - he didn't suck (he did have one really bad giveaway on the PK, but he actually looked like an NHLer most of the game, as he has the past few)

Sucks to lose, but a really really entertaining game to watch.

He is playing terrible and I think that it putting it nicely. I don't care how cool he acts in his little TSN interview saying that he is not worried because he is getting the chances.

Dopita got the chances too, but if you can't finish as a hockey player then you are nothing and of little value to the sport.

Garon wasn't that great in the past two games, but the guys should be able to steal some games for whoever is in net. Entertaining game nevertheless & here's hoping the guys can come together on this east coast swing.

Lots of hustle from both teams the Oilers really have no offfence. They seem like that kid from Timbits hockey. The one who really hustles up and down the ice, but doesn't really do anything except just shoots the puck deep and keeps skating. He's just happy to be out there hacking at the puck and doesn't really know what's going on.

There is so much skill out there and it seems they are just fighting to adhere to the defence first system. They seem to be torn between playing responsible and playing a high tempo, high skill game. My 2 cents.



Well, friends the time has come to usher in a new era. One in which we hold our heads high and proudly say, "We were Oilers once, and men too"

Hemsky had his fair share of chances tonight but didn't anyone watch him change shifts? He never skates hard to the bench and he was also knocked on his ass about six or seven times tonight.

Either he's playing hurt or he's gotten both lazier and weaker over the summer.

Also, our crowd is pathetic in the regular season.

Not a peep from the crowd aside from a few attempts at chants from the real faithful. It has to be the quietest regular season building in the entire NHL.

It makes a difference. Boston was WAY too comfortable playing in our building tonight. They beat us to all the pucks and had all kinds of time and were playing in a morgue.

The fans need to up the passion a little bit and make Rexall a much more difficult building to visit. It should be hell to play on the road in Edmonton. Like it is in the playoffs.

I liked Cole's game again tonight. Hemsky and Nilsson worked some magic. It will be nice to see Gagner get the monkey off his back. He was close tonight.

One point is OK, but two would have been better.

I am getting worried about our goal production. We are currently on pace for goals. That will simply not do.



Horcoff and MacIntyre rule.

We played alright. Probably our closest to a full 60 minute game. We are still being outshot though.

Tonights Game Notes:
-Roloson played an awesome games. Came up big with 35 saves.
-Cole is a workhorse. Not enough playing time. Must be hurting after that tussle with Ohlund. His goals will come.
-PK was way better. Pisani was a big part of that.
-Nilsson is a very good fit with Hemsky. That play in the 3rd was spectacular.
-Horcoff played better, but I still want to see more.
-Despite being pointless, Gagner was looking good out there.

-Although Gilbert is not producing offensively, he is playing good defense. Still want to see his 4 mill offense.
-Grebs still has some kinks in his defensive game. He has to hold the line better.
-Penner had jump for one or two games, now it's worn off. He needs more playing time.
-Souray isn't really doing anything. He's just eating minutes.
-We really need to start directing more pucks at the net. We aren't gonna score. Too many players looking for quality chances.

I agree with you nullterm, as far as this game went it could have gone either way. i would like to see the oil pick up their shots on goal seems we get out shot a lot and you cant get the goals if you are not putting rubber towards the net.

Shutout for the second time in three games. Three goals for in past three games. With the offensive talent on the back end and the skill up front I find this hard to swallow. The defensive effort isnt there either. I think MacT has lost the room.

Firstly, I thought Roli played great, overall I think the team is starting to come together, just a few more tweaks, we had lots of chances, Thomas played fantastic as well.

But I also predicted that by 15 games in, the oil would be having problems scoring goals and that Brule and Schremp would be called up, Stortini and Pouliot sent down, for some reason the thread was deleted, anyway that doesn't matter, what matters is it doesn't mean anything to get chances unless you score on them, a chance is not a goal, mark my words, Brule and Schremp called up, Pouliot and Stortini, sent down

Hey more face-off wins! That's always nice to see.

Our real problem is letting their forwards walk the puck right in our zone. Not enough backcheck IMO.

Oy, how hard is this to comprehend? They're not going to give MacIntyre a regular shift, so they have to rotate the forwards through the fourth line when he's not out there.

He was actually double shifting Cole. Plucking MacIntyre and inserting Cole on that 4th line to try to get some offense.

I didn't catch the game against Vancouver, but I have to say I loved the make up of the lines tonight. Give them some more ice time to gel and it could be exciting in the long run.

I know it was an OTL, but I still feel pretty good about the way the team played today with the consistent effort they put forward for the whole game.

Lubo + Souray also looked really solid to me.

Just got home, haven't seen a highlight, just the game summary sheet.
It tells me all I need to know, Horcoff stiff legged, not moving his feet, like the lazy, out of shape bum he is, hooks a guy for a marginal call, and we lose in OT.

Horcoff's stiff legged skating and his lack of mobility, and all the hooking calls that come from it, reminds me of Stoll.

I could maybe understand it if he was coming back from major knee surgery, but he isn't.

Time for Shawn to take some power skating classes.

Got my 13.95 back for that pathetic excuse for a PPV game. I expected quality, but what I got was audio being all over the place, from non existence to way over the board. Shaw said they were going to do this once, my reply, "If it happens again I will be calling again"

The game:
Fantastic 60 minutes of play, the pass from Hemsky to Nilsson was amazing. Tough break on Roli, Horcoff had no choice on the penalty in overtime. It was a very solid game for Roli.

I think the oil are just learning how to play oiler hockey, they have so much talent and speed that they just have to communicate with each other more. MacT has to spend time with the boys and reign in what is Oiler Hockey.

Unfortunately, I think he's forgotten what that is.

Stauffer on the CHED postgame agrees with you.

The reasons why I disagree with you guys are simple. No 3-headed monster. Roli is a backup, Garon is the starter. You go with the starter next game.

Or has Garon lost that much confidence from the coaching staff, or even us and the colour guy beside Rod tonight.

I like Stauffer on CHED, he's even disagreed with Tencer a few times with some strong opinions. I wonder how I'd even be able to defend a premise against him -- he's on a roll tonight.

Set the lines and keep them that way.

He was actually double shifting Cole. Plucking MacIntyre and inserting Cole on that 4th line to try to get some offense.


So what about Penner-Horcoff-Gagner?

Or Hemsky-Cogliano Nillson

Or Moreau-Pisani-Pouliot..(yes that one was used before this game)

Those are some of the line combos I saw.

Yup I agree MacIntyre plays 3 mins, but in the first few games MacBlender was pretty consistent on the other wingers he rotated (Nillson, Cole). Tonight all of the lines got mixed up.

Just got back from the game.

-Gagner is snake bit. He had two glorious chances in the first to score but looked like he was perhaps squeezing the stick or overthinking with so much time. Obviously not a good finish for him.

-After Lucic hit Hemsky Mac was on the ice for the next shift and went right over to Lucic and had a chat with him. After that Lucic was invisible. Perfect.

-Hemsky and Nilsson looked awesome together. (If only that Hemsky chance had gone in!!) Yes Hemsky makes turnovers. He also creates offense from nothing. Drew a couple penalties tonight as well from moving his feet. I dont know how he could not be frustrated playing with....

-Horcoff looked awfull again. Every time I noticed him he was making a bad decision or having the play die with him.

-I liked the third line for the most part. Moreau made a couple nice hits and Pisser helps alot on the PK.

-Cogliano was as invisible as I can remember this year.

-Roloson was very good.

Ive thought this for the last couple of games now, but I really feel like they played alright and if they continue with this effort the breaks will come and they will start scoring goals and subsequently winning games....They have to!
