This sucks, but at least they got a point out of this game. A TMac coached team would have lost this in regulation.

Really not a bad outcome considering that they had to endure so many non calls by the refs again. Frustrating because they could have been tied with the Dinks in the standings and now we're 3 points behind them. Lucic on the ice with the goalie pulled? Really ? Hard to figure that move other than trying to boost his confidence. That part was ugly! Koskinen was the first star in my books.

Sweet effort by Drai on the game loser.

Little stick jab and then skates away to leave Rakell at the side of the net to whack away for a second and third opportunity. I hope Hitch is all over that joker of a play.

Flybys should be cause for the press box. It just screams lazy, waste ass effort.

Hoping for that fortuitous bounce so he can rifle the puck up ice.

Way too much of that in his game. Way too many long “hope” passes as well.

These are the things that I’m hopeful Hitch can force out of his game.

https://www.nhl.com/oilers/news/blog-oilers-skating-in-la/c- 302262758

..."Lines are:

Spooner - McDavid - Draisaitl

Rattie/P.Russell - Khaira - Puljujarvi

Klefbom - Larsson
Nurse - Russell
Gravel - Wideman

Gravel and Wideman the 3rd D pairing, probably?.....Rattie or Patrick Russell on the 4th line with Puljujarvi and Kharia???....interesting....scary, but interesting.....I'm thinking there might be some in-game line shuffling, along with a lot of double shifting for McDavid.....

.....wonder which goalie will get the start in LA Sunday night???....

I’d think Koski, unless that stinger from the other night is giving him fits.

EDIT: I was wrong. Sounds like Talbot is manning the nets in tinsel town... per Jack Michaels twitter

I am really happy to see Rattie still down the lineup as Hitch looks for the right winger on that top line. I know he was anointed the top line winger after his preseason but I still see very little out of him as any kind of a solution.
2 or 3 times a game he looks like he is dangerous and makes a nice play but the other 90% of the game he seems lost or lazy or both.
I read the other day that he struggled to get any kind of look from Hitch back STL, I would be fine with him being lost in the shuffle on the Oilers sooner than later.

Glad to see Benning on the black aces D line. I am not ready to write off his career but he isnt good enough right now.

I am hoping to see JP get some PP time, even on the second unit. I still believe that he could be of use as a trigger man there and it could do wonders for his confidence.
from the time Hitchcock was announced as coach I have been wondering what he can do with JP. He is the kind of guy that might develop very quick OR might be beaten into submission by the coaching style.

Speechless, how did we throw that one away? crazy

We'd done so well, and were unlucky to allow them to pull it back so late and then get caught by a sucker punch in OT.

Thought the third line had an effective game tonight, and we looked solid once more, but it feels all wasted by that ending now.

I like the fuzzy new toy too, but I would be ripping McLellan pretty hard right now. Either his assistants aren’t warning him or he’s not listening.

Feel bad for Koskinen. He was solid. This should have been a shut out.

I thought there was a chance there for Kassian to try for the empty netter, but instead he threw it up to the direction of Lucic. Was he scared of it being icing? Every other team shoots it on us from everywhere.

Either Conner-Drai or Spooge would have been smart, why have Lucic and Kassian? Just doesn't make sense. Id rather have Rattie and Khaira out there.

....a few random thoughts...

....Benning wasn't bad today....expect he will be a healthy scratch against the Kings on Sunday night to make room for Chris Wideman...

.....Koskinen deserved a better fate....maybe the shot in the upper body slowed him down, but he was pretty solid most of the day....

....Rickard Rackell is an absolute Oiler killer....

....McDavid is McDavid, but it's going to take him a while to find his stride under Hitchcock....hope not too much time....the season is going by fast....

Nuge centering the second line is going to work out....just a hunch....

....would imagine the Oiler brain trust will be renting a few limos and heading to see the Condors play in Ontario this evening...I think it's only about a half hour drive...hope the Condors do well, but I still think Yamamoto and Puljujarvi should stay in the AHL at least till mid-season....maybe the trade deadline and beyond....

Lucic on the ice 5 on 6. Badddd idea.

Gravel looked very good.

Spooner has some wheels and looked much more settled.

Koskinen was fairly solid.

We still need to consider bringing up Bear or Jones.

When is Reider back?

Pretty thin line -up of wingers after the usual.

He’s really quite terrible, if you’re talking about Dean on 1260. Dumb as a bag of hammers and consistently makes awful arguments and logical fallacies.

I never call in or text these shows. But this guy bothers me on some nights. He continually encourages listeners to text in and prove him wrong. So on a few nights this season when he has gotten his mind stuck on something with blinders in place, I have texted in. But he seems to cherry pick what he shares with listeners. It seems he will share softball opposing views against his own for some balance, but avoids texts that might shoot holes in his opinion. Tonight I was like, why bother...lol.

The only reason I flip onto his post game is that M Kassian, Struds or Gregor sometimes chime in with their views. If it’s been a controversial night, I like to hear multiple opinions that are not from some guy that’s been a fan since the WHA.

Loo is being used in a checking role by Hitch as he is fairly good on the boards which 6-on-5 play generally has quite a bit of as the team is trying to grind out the remaining time in regulation. I don't know that I would fault him for that tying goal. Having said this, we'll see if Hitch does the same thing in similar situations moving forward.

Dummy on that tying goal was actually Klef. Totally abandoned the front of the net on the initial shot. He should have been right there to clear the rebound or tie up the free man.

Klefbom has a few costly brain cramps every game it seems. Lucic was too slow to get to the open guy who hadn't scored a goal yet this year. Lucic is a give away machine when under pressure but aside from being too slow to get to the goal scorer, it wasn't really his fault. Gravel really showed some value in this game and Spooner was good too. I thought the Oilers were lucky to be even after one but were pretty good after that. Not sure how Talbot is going to get back his starting job at this point. Very frustrating loss after a great goal by Nuge.

I thought Lucic was pretty weak sauce in the corner on the guy that made the unobstructed pass to the point. That bothered me more than his lack of awareness/quickness after.

I looked at it again and you're right. He looked like he was taking a breather and let the guy make that pass.

Klefbom has a few costly brain cramps every game it seems. Lucic was too slow to get to the open guy who hadn't scored a goal yet this year. Lucic is a give away machine when under pressure but aside from being too slow to get to the goal scorer, it wasn't really his fault. Gravel really showed some value in this game and Spooner was good too. I thought the Oilers were lucky to be even after one but were pretty good after that.

Or hesitant because he’s not a PK guy.

Probably comes with playing over 25 minutes a night. He is right near the top of the league in average ice-time, which is quite the ask. We will see if he gets more used to it, but he's probably more sound than any other option out there at those minutes.

Didn't see the game saw the highlights.

Does Lucic play on the PK? Like Ever?
Then why the FK is out on a 6 on 5?
Hitch goin' Full Retard.



Loo is being used in a checking role by Hitch as he is fairly good on the boards which 6-on-5 play generally has quite a bit of as the team is trying to grind out the remaining time in regulation. I don't know that I would fault him for that tying goal. Having said this, we'll see if Hitch does the same thing in similar situations moving forward.

Brown felt there was a mistake on the forward players put on the ice and the Ducks took advantage of it. Oilers lost the puck battle in the corner as Stauffer and Brown seen it. Lucic came over from his off wing to support and did little more than watch. Then he watched the point man. Then decided to hustle to the slot when it was too late. I’m blaming the coach more than Milan though. He’s not a PK on this team. Hopefully he learned his lesson.

I agree that Leon eventually lost the game for them, but that was a match up that cost them just as dearly. They were 17 seconds away from a shut out victory. But Millard contests that Brodziak missing a wide open net is a bigger contributing factor in the loss.

You are right that goal isn't on Lucic, it was more on #6 and #77 both getting crossed up. #77 way too soft on the play, the goal scorer slides right by him as #77 is going the other way, the wrong way, he should have hit him, prevented him from crossing the goal and getting open ice. When in doubt, freaking hit someone!

I wouldn’t hang it on Lucic solely either, but it was questionable position he was put in by the coach, and he wasn’t much help. It’s entirely possible that puck never makes it to the point in the first place with 17 seconds left, had a better decision been made.

RNH should have been on the ice.

Apparently 78% of teams who have a playoff spot at American Thanksgiving end up going to the playoffs.

The Oilers are not in a playoff position.

Oilers are 1/2 game out of the playoffs, and were 25 seconds from being 1/2 game into the playoffs. Lets not lose prospective.

Not going to pin this on Looch. This game doesn’t go to OT if Connor and Leon show up. Did not like their game at all. Connor got owned on that winning goal. Brutal play from both he and Drai today.



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