Dallas-St Louis road trip in November last year was the lowest part of a very low season. I hope lessons have been learned and we don't get a repeat.

Things are very tight, and yeah, there's still 55 games left after this one but a regulation win would be huge. Move up to a point behind Dallas with a game in hand.

I'll categorize this as a MUST WIN.

No small games!

The Oilers are getting dangerously close to me believing they're a real hockey team. Dangerously close.

Stupid Monday game means I can't go up and see them.

2 Years ago around this time of year #97 got his first career hat trick, hopefully we'll see more of that, and less of last year's style.



97.

Dallas might be tougher with Bishop in the lineup....if that defense in front of him can withstand the pressure from the Oilers...

...I still haven't given up on Benning....

Lucic went from being on pace for an 82 goal season to now having only scored twice in the past 72 games.

Imagine if Lucic hadn't scored in the first game of the season. icon_eek

Get off his back. Lucic is on pace for 13 more goals this contract.

Or about 5 if you allow for trending...

I wonder what was the highest dollar/goal contract in the NHL the last few seasons...Lucic has to be getting close:

Year 1 - 23 goals - $260,870/goal
Year 2 - 10 goals - $600,000/goal
Year 3 - 1 goal in 26 games...that's trending to an incredible $2MM/goal.

At least now he's playing where he should be. 3rd line, high energy shifts with the main goal of offensive zone possession. Hitch even puts those guys out against top lines and he do a decent job of keeping the puck out of our end.

No more lucic on the 1st PP unit, no more Lucic being a boat anchor in the top 6. Nice to finally see.

Amen to that. I predict the 3rd line scores tonight! They're all working hard and it's time for a reward.

I think Khaira is on like a 37 goalless drought too. That's amazing to me since I see at least once every 3 or 4 games where he's broken through the D for a great chance or like in Calgary he had that breakaway.

Nice to see Fedun getting some more NHL time. Always want to root for a guy who suffers an injury like that, especially early in their career.
