3 Cups

First time in a very long time in an effort to control myself, I made the decision to not watch the 3rd period.

I am pretty shocked and baffled by that effort. I have said all along I thought if the Oilers play well, they will win. I think they are the better team but man did they lay an egg. I thought things were looking good after the first 10 mins. They were flying, got a goal from the bottom 6, hit a post, missed a few other chances. Then BOOM, they stopped completely.

I thought the whole forward group was bad after the first 10 mins, expect maybe Foegele. Most looked disinterested for whatever reason. None of them seemed to have any jump. I thought Vegas played pretty dirty and it got to the Oilers big time and they came unglued. The second line with Nuge was horrific. I keep singling out Nuge but he's a critical player to the Oilers secondary scoring and he's been the worst forward on the Oilers all playoffs in my opinion especially when you consider the amount of ice time he gets and how they rely on him. Just when I thought he couldn't get worse, he was worse last night. He keeps saying he needs to pick up his game, needs to shoot more. THEN DO IT!! Shoot the bloody puck. Go after the damn puck, get in there. He looks scared to get near anyone.

Same with McLeod. You are 6'2, almost 210 and skate like the wind. You should be flying around being an absolute menace with your size and speed. My god you are soft. Go after the freaking puck and get in there and my god, SHOOT!

Yamo, what the hell do you do? Seriously. What do you do to contribute to the team. These 3 have been absolutely brutal, no shows and when you play a 11 forwards, that's over 1/4 of your forwards that literally do nothing.

The offense in general. Brossoit goes down, you have a cold goalie coming in. You'd think you'd want to pepper the guy. NAH. Show time. The amount of overpassing and trying for the perfect goal was ridiculous. Good lord, GO TO THE NET. I really wish the Oilers would have a forum with the fans and the players in the room and ask the fans what we want. This playoffs, do we want to see unreal, highlight reel goals and risk not scoring and losing or do we want the team to win? I would bet pretty much every fan would gladly sacrifice not seeing highlight reel chances and goals for a win.

The defense. Bad. All of them were bad.

Goaltending. My leash for Skinner is getting really, really, really short. The amount of times he got beat clean is concerning. Whiteclouds and Eichel's goals I didn't love. He got just beat clean. No screen, no one timer. Just beat him.

They need to split up McD and Leon. Nuge is useless right now, his line is getting destroyed. Pairing McD and Leon to go nuclear only works if Nuge can keep his head above water and he's drowning.

I expect the Oilers to come out in game 4 flying and beat the Knights. I still think the Oilers should win but my good, be better.
