I suppose that Pronger breaking Zetteberg's stick was NOT a penalty???????



you're a moron. how about holmstrom slashing roloson when the puck was already covered. don't bring up other shit when you just ate shit.


FLASHYFLASH

if all you can do is name call, go buy a flames jersey.




if all you can do is support the RED WINGS then go fuck yourself leave edmonton and play with chelios balls all you like.


I'm a huge Oilers fan. I love this team...

Just sick of your useless comments and insults.

PLease grow up and stop humbling us with your greatness.



no i think my comments are much more usefull then yours



Your a perfect example of replacing knowledge with ego. Keep talking I'll enjoy watching you prove my point,


first off mind your own busines, because nobody was talking to you. i was arguing with hockeyfan234324. so you can get your ego out of your ass aswell


You know what that's true, hannie you didn't need to really get involved but flash you still talk to him like you really believe in what your saying all the cusing and stuff is unecessary, whatever your both oiler fans, who cares drop it, it's just dumb. GO OILERS


It started with him insulting a poster in another thread BTW.



i'm relaxed it's all good i haven't been able to snap at something for a long time, it happend tonight. my bad for the cursing and insulsts, but hockeyfan4616 doesn't know what intereference is and he was pissing me off. i got no beef with you.

I think the officiating has been horrid all series long for both teams to be honest. I don't think they called "everything" either last night because there were plenty of things let go on both sides still.

You or I could not Knock an NHL Player down with a full body to body hit in the open ice, now a skater (Lidstrom at that) knocks one down skating backward, and contacting only an outstretched stick? I don't think so, just another dive, that BOTH teams were guilty of tonight. That is what happens with poor officiating, both teams constantly look for the penalty, and this one cost them the game.

What the HELL do the Oilers have to gain by falling on the ice hoping for a penalty when they are under siege of a 5 on 3 powerplay?

Trust me.....no Oiler wanted to be laying down on the ice useless turning a 5 on 3 into a 5 on 2.

Very....silly....talk Mr. 1st post.

Watch the tape, it was skate to skate...that's the contact that knocked him to the ice.

In any case, the play even if he wasn't knocked down is still completely illegal. It's impeding the progress of a player who is not the puck carrier. INTERFERENCE.

Learn the rules, pal

I am aware of the rules, and have the game on tape, You KNOW the game, see a player skating towards you, and make sure you make contact with him. Both teams play it, look at Pronger forcing Shanahan off sides, No Call there, and sometimes you lose, when you try to make it look like more than it was. I am a huge hockey fan, and thought the game was very poorly officiated, but that was not a penalty, you can see Lidstrom try and avoid the contact a bit. I expected more intelligent responses, but most of you have settled for profanity laced insults. That's not nice now is it?

If you have really watched it again, and you really do not believe that that was an interference call, then you my friend don't know shit about hockey or the rules.

No one on this board is saying that we deserved to win. We were lucky the score wasn't worse IMO. So we all give Detroit this game hands down. But that was a pick. No 2 ways about it, and if you can't see that, you need to take off your homer glasses and have another look. Or learn the game.

Post something semi-intelligent, and you will surely get mostly intelligent replies.

Thank you end of story. Hockeyfan it's not an arguement. Announcers agreed but the referee's weren't paid to make those calls. Babcock talking about the play just adds more salt to the wound, he should just be happy it wasn't called what a jackass.

First of all they are men just like most of us on this board, and if you feel that you can't knock an NHL player down when he's unaware of your presence i'm very sorry. Second whether he knocked him down or NOT, he picked Stoll off that is a penalty do you understand that much. If you call Pronger for breaking Zetterbergs stick, then you call Chelios for breaking Pisani's stick or how bout the slashing of the goalie, Holmstrom had a lot of fun doing that? Dive or not it's still a penalty under NHL ruling.

how isn't a ref fined or fired yet. it's just horrible. i don't care if they call a lot of penalties if it's down the middle, but when they miss a call like that it's just pathetic. if this happend to any other team. they would be snapping. if it was the other way around red wings would be snapping.

It's not like in was in a scrum or behind the play - it was right at the goddamn blue line where the play was. So obviously they can't both say "I didn't see it", so then the question to them has to be simply) Why did you not make that interference call? I'd absolutely LOVE to hear the answer to that one.

I had an idea a while back - Press conferences for the officials after a game. I'd love to show them that clip and have them take me through the thought process of why that was a good play.

The league says they talk to these guys about what they need to do better after the game. I want that part televised. Let's see what warnings these guys get, and info on how often they get warned. Let's have clear guidelines for when somebody is just screwing the pooch too much and gets shown the door.

The Oilers had a golden opportunity in that third period. Instead it was a parade to the penalty box and because of it they couldn't gain any momentum after Detroit scored that very questionable third goal.

Greene, he was clearly in over his head. You don't want a raw rookie in there, especially when you already have a guy like Bergeron. I think Ulanov would have been a better option. Why was Tarnstrom even pulled from the line-up? Isn't Pronger already playing enough minutes.

I don't like to complain about the refs, but the game was a little frustrating to watch. That third goal shouldn't have happened imo.

Legace looked shaky at times again tonight. The Oilers should have been in his face and tested him more. As for our PP, fairly predictable.

Also a few of our offensive forwards have to get it going.

It'll be interesting to see what happens in game 5. Can the Oilers pull it off this time around or are they still the team that will give you a battle in the first round but will not be playing hockey past it.

My heart after game 3 thought the Oilers could win this series, but now my head is saying it's going to be tough to beat the Wings in a best of 3 series.

Tonight was a key game and it was even going into the third.

Should Moreau dress when he's not even feeling good enough to kill penaltys? His specialty? Only played :53 seconds.

Granted he was on the 4th line. 5:37 TOI.

I don't own a Harvey jersey or anything but I say if Ethan Moreau is this sore, he shouldn't be playing. It's a time bomb.

On a side note Rem Murray logged 2:24 TOI.

A 3 line night with tons of special teams.

a few actually there's only so much room in the top space;)

1: Hemsky has to grow up and he has to grow up fast. It isn't enough that he's not effective at ES but what's up with these stupid ******* stick fouls all the time. It wasn't bad enough we were taking penalties but it was back to the old ways where we took two penalties while we were down a goal...that's just eating clock.

2: I'm not letting 12 off here either. He's disappeared at ES as well. Stoll's out there working like a dog with these two and nothing's happening.

3. A pretty good game by Torres but not a good start with that stupid penalty to start off things. Still at the end of the day 14-16 look a lot more prepared for the battle than does 83. And let's remember Hemsky already had six playoff games under his belt so this isn't totally new

4. Greene wasn't ready. Probably a safer bet to have gone with Igor. I'm thinking Tarnstrom was hurt if he wasn't in tonight.

5. Shanahan and Datsyuk showed something tonight so even though Yzerman looks done for the series now we've got Pavel to worry about. And things change once we get back to Det and Babcock has last change. The Oilers don't have a 4th line they can trust. Moreau didn't play much tonight and didn't look comfortable when he did. I'd be surprised if he plays again.

6. I'd like to see what the scoring chances were at ES? I'm thinking the Wings still had a slight edge. But the PP's swayed this and the Oilers had a chance to kill Det tonight and they spent too much time in the box.

Its hard to win a hockey game when the other team have 9 guys on the ice all facking night.

NHL, consistency please and consistenlty bad does not qualify!

That said some of the penalties they took were lazy and do something 5 on 3, that was awful.

Did Moreau even hit the ice?

The fact that Mac-T did not throw every stick in the rack on the ice tonight tells me this guy has a serious issues, I think he took too much of the state pen anger management class to heart. Get Mad man fire up you team, do something, that was pure BS out there and you took it like a queer does a pickle!

o i dont know, that just made it a lil easier to swallow.

and yah like put the puck away on a 5-3 for crying out loud, you get at least one opportunity per game you'd think they'd be able to finish once in a while.
we had every opportunity to win this game, and didnt start playing comeback hockey till there was a minute left.. far too little too late

Legace looks like crap, any capable coach would have his players exploit this Detroit weakness, but we're just giving him confidence with crappy shots.

MacT has outcoached Babcock though thus far too my enormous surprise, so let's hope it continues.. and Rolo played a pretty good game from everything I saw.

Referrees yeah MacT blamed it on them not so subtley but what can you do? the league just wont give us Bill Mcreary (or whoever our ref in the first game was) every night :(

Smyth has been making some stupid passes, and isn't showing the grit that i'm used to seeing from him come playoff time :S Torres is about the most energetic oiler in terms of physical play, and Stoll is winning on heart from the forwards. Pronger is a rock. Rolo is doing his job. So where is everyone else? Samsanov has disappeared, hemskey is just playing brutal hockey on the PP, Spacek and bergeron cant connect on those one-timers (spacek scored todai, but for the amount of times he has missed the net he is not forgiven) geezus Greene took a lot of costly penalty minutes, and staois didnt do much of anything.

i wanna see Smith with staois. Pronger with bergeron and if Tarnstrom is back next game, play him with Spacek. I didn't like Spacek/staios.. just dont go together IMO.

Whew...how many stupid penalties did we take tonight? Very undisciplined night from almost everyone.

We didn't help outselves at all, so I can't really blame anyone but the oil. I was whining about the pick on Stoll when I saw it, but the more I tought about it...I know Stoll was just trying to draw a call. I think he could have steped aside a bit, kept in the play and did something about the pass to Lidstrom. He gambled and this is the result. Not to say it was a bad gamble...these refs were unpredictable.

Even so, we had soooo many chances to take this game tonight long before the late game idiocy. It was a very frustrating night all around.

As a side note...I'm completely convinced that Hemsky is a retard. He's like a autistic person with a aptitude for hockey "skills". The kid is incapable of learning from mistakes and keeps doing the exact same stupid crap over and over. The physical ability is there...the guy is talented and has a great skill set, but he has zero common sense.

Back from the game and some final thoughts:

-Refs blew the game but instead of saying they cost the Oil the win, I just feel they cost all of us fans an entertaining game. Yes...that non-call on the pick play against Stoll was bad...but the Oil squandering the 5-3 to go up a goal heading into the third cost them as well. The Wings also missed a couple of open nets so I don't think that one blown call cost us the game (although it sure as hell didn't help)

-The NHL will turn Hockey into Soccer if they don't do something about all the diving. I'm thinking it's hard for the refs to see dives at full speed but they are always very obvious on the slow-mo replay. The NHL needs to crack down on this $hit big-time next year. The league should fine/suspend/make-it-very-public when an NHL player is caught diving. During a game a player will have to know that there will be serious reprecussions for this crap (i.e. Samuelsson's whip-lash on that high-stick he took...it was still a penalty...but what he did to try and embelesh it was embarassing to the game of hockey).

-If you told me at the start of the series we would be 2-2 heading back to Detroit I'd probably take you up on that deal...that's my take at trying to find a positive on a pretty bad night.

-That...and the Flamers lost...

but why didn't MacT call a time-out to give his PP specialists a breather?

'cos it woulda rested Babcock's troops doesn't cut it with me on a five-on-three at that crucial stage of the game.

Cuz MacT wanted had to save his timeout for 60 seconds left cuz his only dry-erase markers were in the locker room and buddy boy billy had to go fetch them. It just ain't a timeout without fancy board drawings!

when he coached.

He wouldn't wait until the 'one minute to go and down by one scnario" before he'd call a timeout.

I totally agree with you Andy...that was a time for a TO there.

talk to any official at ANY level of hockey and the story is the same.

Part of their mandate is to manage the game. Part of that responsibility lies in evening out the calls.

Surely to God, for all of MacT's smarts and experience he didn't think the officials were gonna not answer in the third period the lopsided calls against Detroit?

THAT was their opportunity. That was the Oilers' last opportunity to take the lead. Especially before the period ended.

Bang on.

That guy just does NOT seem to learn anything, and his decisions are just as you say "retarded". Tons of skill, no CPU. Like a jet fighter without a pilot.

Oilers scouting process should have an IQ test associated with all their draft pick interviews.

Im not one to usually complain about refereeing, but that was atrocious last night. Most of the calls, even the one's against Detroit were BAD calls. We just watched a game where the referee's wanted some face time. It was pathetic. Totally ruined the game. Who wants to watch a game where 2 periods are played by special teams? Both teams are scared to even hit each other. That is NOT hockey. Terrible, inconsistent calls and NON calls.

What a bunch of B.S.

It really took away from my enjoyment of the game, win or lose. Let the boys play! Call interference and obvious one's but not all this incidental contact shite that they are calling. It's not freaking basketball we are playing here.
