I don't want to say that was my favorite song as a kid, but man is that a bop. It's probably why I enjoy Rube Goldberg machines so much.

Crazy that we've gone 19-3 over the last 22, and are just now in a wild card position, not even top 3 in the division. Games in hand and all that, but man what a brutal start. Oh well - here we are. Even a loss would keep us in the wild card.

Would like to see a W and a nice 4-5 McPoint night to close that gap a little.

Last game of Seatle's 6 game road trip, 5 of them were out East. Their last game was the second game of a back to back in New York. 3rd game in 4 nights, 4th game in 6 night. Divisional game. Seattle is missing a few key guys. The Oilers have to be motivated and take advantage. They don't need to blow them out, just win the game in regulation.

In the past that'd be a recipe for a sure-fire loss, with the opposition goalie playing like vintage Hasek.

Let's see this team show that they've changed.

Maybe in past seasons but I judge the team on what they are doing now, not dwell on the past. Things change from year to year, players mature, players move on. Coaches change. Maybe if the Oilers were just on a 1-2 week streak of playing well, I could buy a little what you are saying but they are pushing 30 games of playing pretty darn good hockey. Their defensive numbers are through the roof and have been for pushing 30 games. That's more than just a small sample size, that's damn near half of season of playing that way.

I don't see the Oilers laying an egg tonight, not in a divisional game.

Ah they have vintage Hasek now. I wonder if the Oilers start Skinner from here to the all-star break.

All the teams lately have seemed to have a Vintage Hasek. The talking heads on the radio were talking about how the Oilers were winning tight games against a few of the teams the last week and acting like it's because we decided to just grind out wins, but in several one goal games, the Oilers have outshot the other team by a massive margin, and goaltending (or execution) was the difference maker in keeping it from being a blowout.

I was laughing the other day after the Toronto game because they were talking about it as if McDavid didn't have 5 points because he was just so focused on defence and playing a 200-ft game...but he had five shots on goal, several golden chances, and gave multiple people set-ups that they just failed to convert He COULD have had five points against the Leafs. And against the Red Wings where he had seven shots. And against the Habs where he only had one shot, but his linemates had 12 (Nugent-Hopkins 8 and Hyman 4). If not for Vintage Haseks, all those games are lopsided wins.

The season in review video when we win the Cup will be worth the Oilers Plus subscription.

No Cups

An eleven-game winning streak has brought me back to this forum after an extended absence. I was pleased to find out Oilfans is still going.

I would be okay with a loss today, as long the Oilers win on Saturday against the Flames. My 10-year-old daughter loves Seatle for some reason. So it is going to be uncomfortable to watch the game with her tonight. She said we have to cheer for both teams.

Always match up well against Seattle who love trading chances with us. Let's get #12!
