This team came to play half a game. I think I had about 10 heart attacks in the 2nd half of this game, and even questioned why I have loyalty to this team...

45 shots against. I am not impressed.

I guess the fact that our 2 best defensemen and another vet defenseman were out of the lineup wouldn't have anything to do with that would it. Wow people. Our team is probably in need of a defensive defenceman anyway with everyone healthy and then we lose 3 big pieces to our blue line. Of course we will have problems in our own end.

OK, at least it's better than a 3-1 loss than in the past 5 years....and there were lots of goals...and it was exciting....but for all the wrong reasons...

I'll take it

Pulled one out of the fire boys...nicely done.

Good to see Horcoff get back on the scoresheet in a big way.

Penner with another 4 points...hey-ooo!

MacT mentioned his professionalism, but methinks part of his struggles this season are partly related to the bloated, surreal contract.

I do recall Horcoff admitting to cavin' to the pressure(s) of his last contract too, in it's first year. At 3.6 million, I believe?

Khabi saves the night in a shoot out. Gagner I would sit for the next couple of shoot outs. His move isn't working anymore and very obvious.

What a collapse. Four goals up? Lucky to get the two points before heading off on the road.

Penner continues to play well.

Hibernia mentioned that energy may have been lacking in the third, due to the flu. Could be.

Also our d has to get healthy quick.

Phew...

Honestly I thought Detroit let off the gas once they tied it up...

Some lucky bounces, some not so lucky bounces and an ugly third notwithstanding 2 points is still 2 points...

Take it and move on...

Let's win some on the road now boys...

Quinn's best move of the game was, with much wisdom was keeping Gilbert and #37 far, far away from oneanother. I liked that.

Fourth star of the game goes to Wings goalie Howard. Thank-you.

Man alive, putting Cogs, Nilsson and Master Samwise together is the next decision that hasta stop. Lot's of ice, like Quinn said post-game? They're fine. Tighten it up? Boys against men. -3 for the lot.

Y'know, it's irritating the Oilers gave up a four goal lead or whatever but let's keep in mind, this was a line-up w/o Souray, Visnovsky and core member Staios.

Sullivan's gotta get it together. GW aside, of course. : )

Ugliest win in the history of the Oil. I knew there would be comments like 'I'll take it' and such, but seriously, to blow a 5-1 lead when you're dominating so much? Don't like it one bit.
I really hope they bring in a defensive specialist more than a goal-scorer. We need a Reghier type stay-at-home d-man.
I'm taking my Tums now and going to bed.

Nah. We actually were the better team for about half the game. Ugliest win? Think it was a game last year against San Jose - Roloson was absolutely insane that night.

I know what you mean, but the Oilers actually did look good for about 30 minutes.

Ugly, ugly ugly! Not surprising though. This team is lacking killer instinct. It was nice to see Helm scored. I know he's a Red Wing but anytime you see someone you know personally get his first NHL goal it is a thrill. Also Penner is now third in Leauge scoring. Wow!

Didn't Helm score a bunch of playoff goals last year??

Peckham is half the player he was last year. He is now 3/8 of an NHL player.

I don't think they were running on fumes. They were just being overly cautious. They stopped fore-checking all together and took way to much of a defensive posture. These kids need to learn that sometimes the best defense is to stay aggressive. By the way our PP has issues. Either the players arnt executing the plan or the plan doesn't suit our players. Time to switch it up Quinn. We got a couple of goals tonight but we easily could of gave up that many shortys.

Forechecking effectively does take a lot of energy. That's why you usually see the best forechecking in the 1st period by most teams.

Just my thoughts though. Still not happy about the gassing.

Ya just gotta love hockey! Coming into this game nobody picked the Oilers to have a chance, then the Oilers come out strong and lead 5-2 after two and everybody thinks the Oil has this one in the bag, but the Wings storm back and take momentum with it. At this point it looks like the Wings will complete the come back and win, but the Oilers find a way to win it in the shootout. Thats Hockey!

I don't like this one bit. I mean, the quick start and deadly power play exceeded expectations, and they WERE playing the mighty Wings, but to not seal a 5-2 lead (the fluke off Chorney was what it was) is not excusable regardless of a depleted roster. It should be easier to defend late than score late if you're lacking skill. The lack of confidence in breaking out seems to affect everyone on the team. Only JFJ seems to consistently clear the puck out over the blueline on the first try.

Penner... great to see. Even managed to wake up Horcoff. I also love Brule's style. Chorney shows flashes of promise, but gets beat too often. The kid line needs to WTFU.

Two points, now time to get healthy and hit the road. Any chance Pisani is ready?

Well, I liked the first half of that effort a lot better than the 2nd.

The Oilers quit pressuring Detroit in their zone for some reason, they basically conceded Detroit's breakout to them, allowing them to create off the rush.....which is exactly what not to do against Detroit.

Oh well, the losing/shutout streak is snapped, and 2 points go in the bank.

First line was good again early, Horcoff with 3 points hopefully carries this into something positive for his season. Penner is the first star for the 4th time this season.....19 points, are you freaking kidding? Hemsky pots 3 points including 2 goals.

It will be nice when the Oilers are not too fragile to bring home a game like this. Had they just stuck to pressure in the Wings zone, they would have continued to turn over pucks. For awhile their, it looked like Gilbert & Grebs traded teams the way the Detroit D was handing the puck to Oilers forwards. This was nearly a loss because the Oilers look like a weak team psychologically, and maybe they'll get a little stronger because they ended up winning anyway. There are several opportunities for the coaches to teach lessons out of this hockey game, that's for sure.

Yes we gave up a 4 point lead but we also played without our two best D and steady steve. Really we did enough to get two points and I think come playoff time we are going to be in the same position we are in now plus or minus one.

The Kid line imploded defensively. Time to break them up for good and keep a back-checker with them at all times. I like Nilson in the press box when we get some bodies back. Our minor league D was exploited again too. Heal up quick boys.

For the last two years, we've been getting the lead, giving it up and losing the game.

Now we are getting the lead, giving it up and just hanging in there to win it.

I CAN see the difference, can you see the difference?

If we won every game in the past two years, where we let the other team claw back up to par with us, then we would have been a playoff team for sure (in those years).

To boot, at least one of those goals was very well defended by the Oil and fluky on Detroit's part.

I'll take hanging on to win over hanging on to lose any day of the week, especially if a few of the goals are fluky.



2015/2016 - This Kool-Aid tastes like McDavid flavoured Drain-O.
2016/2017 - This Kool-Aid is starting to taste like juice.
2017/2018 - I'm drinking this Kool-Aid, in hopes that it's Drain-O.
2018/2019 - Another round of Drain-O, good sir!

Good to see the first line getting it done, collective 10 points and +5 (+11 if PPG counted).

Hopefully Horc is clear of his funk and is back on track. The team needs him performing.

The Kid Line no points and collective -9. I'm sure Gags arguing with Buchburger won't help, I don't see the experiment lasting very long.

Peckham looked like he was just watching the game with a -3. Looked like Strudwick was playing solo out there in front of Khabi.

Our D needs to get healthy, fast. This is a very different team with Souray, Visnovsky, and even Staios.

I work in a bar. Watching the game when we were up 5-1 I say "I don't have a good feeling about this." A customer says to me "Your team is up five to one right now and you don't have a good feeling? What does that say about your team?" Felt like last year..........At least we won.

As soon as Helm scored after Hemsky's goal I got the feeling that this team would get complacent. They did score one more afterward but I was sure right about the complacent part. I could just about picture the Oilers Choke thread on Calgary Puck and Heckling from the Flametard's if we lost that one.

I work in a bar. Watching the game when we were up 5-1 I say "I don't have a good feeling about this." A customer says to me "Your team is up five to one right now and you don't have a good feeling? What does that say about your team?" Felt like last year..........At least we won.


Well keep in mind that we are missing 3 core defensemen, and the whole team is sick with the flu. I think we did pretty good.



When you get all set to watch the game, and within 10 minutes the Oilers are losing:

True, we were lucky to squeak out with a win. Hopefully in a couple weeks we will be alright.

Gags and Buchburger was something eh. Typical kid. Think they know everything. It's something that time and experiance will take care of.



Missed the game. What are you referring to?

1 Cup

in the game last night when it appeared like Buchberger was tryin' his best to give Master Samwise some constructive criticism, as us cool guys call it, and Gagner sorta was throwin' his arms arounda bit pleading his case. With a disgruntled look on his face. Buchberger had a more dumbass look on his face.

....they salvaged the 2 points.

Kid Line ain't working at the NHL level.

Looking forward to having Pisani in for Moreau or Nilsson.

Horcoff Mr. Magoo's his way into a couple points, but hey - we'll take what we can get at this point. His game last night was better than what he's shown.

Laddy Smid - fantastic season. He's really turned a corner.

Brule looks like a bonafide NHL player, which is terrific - still love that Brule-Torres trade.

Mr. Magoo's his way? Geez...you really can't say anything positive about him, eh?

Point #1, he manages to get off a wicked one-timer and Penner pops in the rebound. Point #2, he shoots on net, Penner scoops the rebound to Hemsky for the PPG. Point #3, he works his bag off in front of the net to stuff home a rebound. Ugly goal, but that's the way you score in the NHL.
