GDB XX: Lunch time on the road

I don't know about you guys, but these Sunday afternoon PPV games don't provide a very good incentive for me to get out of bed. That's why I'm writing this in my full-body jammies with sewn-on feet from my bedroom. I'm also eating an entire ham in bed, but that's a typical Sunday morning tradtion that really has nothing to do with hockey or PPV games.

Today's game against the Thrashers marks 4 of a 5 games on this road trip, a trip in which the Oilers haven't fared too well. We've lost two out of three so far, and all because some cowboys are ropping cattle and drinking $8 beers inside RX1. Add to that the fact the Wanye has apparently flown the coup — he asked me to drive him to the airport yesterday after he packed himself a small hobo sack and didn't say where he was going — and things haven't been what you'd call "peachy" here in OilersNation.

But don't despair, the Oilers have a few things going for them:

  1. Pat Quinn is getting to the point where he must be scaring the shit out of the players with his rage at their poor play. I'd like to think that this is going to inspire the boys into playing, you know, hockey.
  2. As Brownlee indicated yesterday, Big Sex, Horcoff and Nilsson skated yesterday morning, and there's a chance they'll play today.
  3. Kovalchuk's foot is injured, and although he's been stopping pucks, I can see us making this work to our advantage with some net-crashing (though I certainly don't condone this).

Sure, these aren't game-makers, but I need some hope — something to hold onto. And the Oil? They need a win. Or six. Before Pat Quinn's had explodes.

This won't be an easy win for the boys in copper and blue — but they'll take the "W" 4-3. And they'll do it for Fernando Pisani.

Bingofuel is the handsome cyborg who pulls all the levers behind the curtains of the OilersNation. When he isn't running the site, he's plugged into a wall socket, recharging. Or Brownlee and Wanye are playing "keep away" with him. He gets little to no respect.

Thanks random help. Will it be the same for all the ppv games? Or is it a different password for each game?

It's not my feed so I couldn't say for sure. I check http://www.myp2pforum.eu/nhl-icehockey/ for feeds, especially for ppv's. Good place to find oil prospect feeds also.

BTW, first time poster long time reader. thanks to all contributors.

This game is on PPV/quasi-blackout so we don't have to watch this mess and develop bad feelings about this team.

These guys need to burn it down and rebuild their system play from the bottom... again. They just keep rushing the blueline as one big plug running into a wall of defenders then making a short pass that either puts them offside or bounces off a leg and goes back the other way. Who is telling them to avoid the dump and chase? And why did Hemsky think that a cross ice pass to Horcoff who was basically standing on the red line would be a good idea. Not exactly the best one time set up in the world... Just balls.

I agree with No Hitter as well... was there a single hit by the oilers during the first other than the Visnovsky boarding fiasco?

You b4stards. I was trolling the blogs to see where the feed was. Didn't see anything so I coughed up the 6 bucks. Of course, just as PayPal takes the blood money, someone comes up with a feed.

Hey WTF???

Anybody else have a rewind of the last 5 minutes of the game going on?

no, you have to pay 280 bucks for a home seat, 8 bucks a beer then win a silent auction at the game to get a charity receipt ( for the auction)

Why do they even schedule games on Sunday afternoon? The entire state is probably watching the Falcons game.

The East just seems to love afternoon games for some reason. I mean, can you even get a skate in when the game starts at noon? I'm thinking it's just pregame warmups for the boys. I'd still be clearing cobwebs outta my melon.

I don't think so, his points over the last few games may not show it but he's consistently been one of the best players on the ice for either team all year.

We stopped playing HOLYCRAP KHABBY! Please boys he can't keep this pace up forever. Help him out a bit.

Anyway, we stopped playing afternoon games in minor hockey by the time we were like 13. So I have no idea why they schedule them for the pros.

I can't tell, are there a lot of blue hairs in the crowd? LOL! I can't imagine the boys like playing so early. Maybe like 5pm or something because then they can relax more in the evening, but noon is a bit of a stretch.
