The Oilers are 2 for 5 on the powerplay, and the Canucks are 2 for 3. Apparently you are allowed to slash the opponents stick in half right in front of the net on a scoring chance - but only if it is a 4th line player.

Luongo improving his save percentage with a scintillating 0.884 in this one. Meanwhile Schneider sits on the bench with his 0.935.

Not a hat trick but I wonder if they'll take the goal away. It should be credited to Hall.

Oilers have to play 60 minutes to beat a canucks team that is playing just terrible hockey everywhere. THe canucks can win by playing 20 minutes. Pretty much explains the difference between the two teams.

Simple solution: keep opponent to 15 shots or less.

And have to score 4 goals? Better keep them to 10 shots.

Sturm is fucking awful.

Samuelsson is DUH out there.

Hansen is in need of some serious vitamin B shots

Why isn't everyone on the team skating with meaning and desire like Chris Higgins this year so far?

Malhotra is useless.

Bieksa is back in Dumbville again.

And Lou-Flop-O belly is flopping the ice again.

Nice fucking punch Volpatti returned with.


You're being a bed-wetter. You always hammer this team, but give them more than 4.5 games.

Sturm is an older player, coming off surgeries, he's on a new team. GIVE HIM 10 GAMES before passing judgment.

Samuelsson is one only 2 or 3 Canucks who has a nose for the net and will fire the puck, he is a useful cog in the machine.

Malhotra is not useless, the guy wins pretty much every draw he takes. Again he's an older player coming of a SERIOUS injury. Give him 8 to 10 Games before passing judgement.

Not sure where you are going with Bieksa.

I'll give you the Luongo stuff, but not based on tonight. Luongo is certainly overrated and overpaid but tonight's goals are not on Red Light Roberto.

Just take a few breaths, think about last season and note the similarities in the personnel, the coaching staff, the management and even the start. This team will be 100+ points and in the playoffs, fear not.

(And if we miss anyone, its Christian Erhoff.)


Hey Eternal Optimist Bed Shitter, nice job in the face off circle from your Mancrush Malhotra against the kid Nugent Hopkins. HE SUCKS LARGE!

Well, according to his salary, 15 shots shouldn't be a problem for this Star-Studded Goaltender. LOU-FLOP-O

Malhotra is 73% on faceoffs through 2 periods.

I never thought I'd ever see something more creepy than how MaGuire fawns over 18 year old kids. And then CAME Mark Lee.



Amazing how quick the Oilers break down when you get precisely two good shifts in a row down low in the Oilers zone.

Afraid I'm going to have to rely on all y'alls analysis of the game... Drinking game tonight is a shot of wild turkey every time Ryan-Nugent-Hopkins' name rolls off the drooling tongue of Mark Lee.

Been BLIND drunk since the ten minute mark of the first period.

Paging Jannick Hansen. Pretty much useless so far this year. I guess he missed AVs doghouse last year and wants to return to it.

20 minute canucks > 60 minute Oilers.


A victory for the canucks on Nugent-Hopkins day.

Well that's exactly it. The Canucks have (again) been 70% awful in this game. But this is the kind of game the Canucks would win last year. We'd stink the joint out, and still win the game.

Higgins was great. Salo was great. Sedins were themselves (pretty darned good). The rest of the team was meh, but you could see they're getting back into the swing of things. They're realizing that it's not going to be a cakewalk back to the finals, that they might have to block a shot or take a hit to get a win against a weaker team. The fact that's coming 5 games in can only be a good thing going forward.

Execution and timing is still a problem. But it will come with more games and the return of an important (re: Selke) player or two...

With all the shot blocking in the third it was almost as if the canucks simply said "enough of this shinny crap, let's show those kids what being in the NHL is all about". It was a good third period until a couple of tense moments at the end.

Those kids are very good players but the Oilers are SOOOOOO far away from being competitive as a team.
