GDB 13.0: SEVEN

Wanye
November 05 2011 05:06PM

Holy crap. Are we seriously talking about a seven game win streak thirteen games into the season? How does this happen exactly? One day you are minding your own business trying to think up a clever name to replace Exciting Last Place Hockey and all of a sudden you are trying to find posters that would be appropriate for a seventh win in a row.

"Life moves pretty fast, if you don't slow down you could miss it" - Approximate quote from Ferris Bueller's Day off.

GAME V PHOENIX

And so the Mighty Oilers swing into the jobing.com arena in Phoenix tonight, looking for a 7th consecutive win. Poor old Phoenix is having a hell of a time getting people in the seats again this year as this picture from last game against the Predators can attest.  Yet again the Coyotes will be hoping that the "crowd" won't be outnumbered by the ushers and are looking to improve on their 6-4-2 record.

6 wins? Seriously that's all they have managed to accumulate? The Oil have 6 wins in their last 5 games for heavens sakes. Easy Wanye, don't jinx anything. The Coyotes are tied for a playoff spot. They are off to a good start. They employ the world class hockey skillery of this guy:

 

SERIOUSLY? SEVEN?

We have to contain our excitement these days when watching our beloved Edmonton Oilers Squadron play the ice hockey matches. We don't want to jinx them in any way shape or form and cannot allow ourselves to picture a playoff berth this year - even for a moment.

We have been kicked too many times, had our heart broken once too often. So we won't do anything here to jeopardize what has been an UNREAL start to the season. Not yet Wanye, hold your position*

Instead we will go crazy for the promotion the Coyotes are running tonight in order to try and get some butts in seats.

THE BUCK BASH

When we logged onto the Coyotes website our eyeballs shot out of their sockets and splattered against the monitor. That's right Nation, the Coyotes are selling dollar beers at the game. If we knew that the Oilers would be competing for a 7th straight win and beers at the game only cost a dollar we would have started walking to Arizona weeks ago!

A dollar doesn't get you a spot in the line at the urinals at Rexall Place. How on earth can the Coyotes be selling beer this cheap? You take your ol pal Wanye to a game with dollar beers on a Saturday Night, you might as well book the ambulance needed to get us home at the end of the game.

We would need a full monkey blood transfusion and ten donairs to even make a dent in the hangover we would have tomorrow morning if we were at this game.

1 dollar beer!

*whistles so loudly that Rexall Place immediately collapses*

THE LINES

According to the Oilers twitter account no lines were run by the Oilers in Phoenix today but did confirm that Devan Dubnyk would be starting in goal. The rest will remain a mystery until the puck drops tonight but we can bet that you will see three superstar tweens out as a line combination tonight.

SQUEEEEE!

*That's what she said.

For all those people who say we should trade Hemsky, this is why you hold onto him. If he's healthy, he's your trap beater. Man I miss Hemsky.

Game Day Prediction: Oilers make it to 7th heaven with a gritty road win. 2-1 Final.

Obvious Game Day Prediction: There will still be fans in the stands wearing old school Jets Jerseys. Why? Let it go.

Not-So-Obvious Game Day Prediction: Belanger, MPS, and Gagner dig really deep tonight; (as individuals eyeing Hemsky's return) unfortunately this doesn't translate to cohesive play. Renny shakes things up in the 3rd by playing Lander up with Paajarvi and internet nerds everywhere swoon. It will just be a couple of shifts people.

If this $1 beer scam doesn't work they should just move the Phoenix team to Winnipeg right now... Wait, they have a team again?? It could still work though. Just move the old Jets to Winnipeg and the current, some could say fake, Jets to Quebec. Dustin Byfuglien probably wouldn't even notice the difference until someone started speaking French to him.

Hurry, there's still time to edit that comment!

I must say I expect a W tonight, which might be a bad sign. I'm going 5 - 3 with Lander scoring the winner and Jones getting an EN goal!

It's too bad that the lack of crowd noise (they would need a crowd first...) combined with CBC's Glum and Glummer will make this broadcast excruciating.

Its not exciting last place hockey, it boring first place hockey. Winning feels good, but I can't wait till this team can open up a offensive can of Oil based woop ass any given night.

Can you imagine if Rexall did a Desert themed promo night with 1 dollar beers. I'd have 37 rather then my regular two. How do they not gotta packed house every night. The hockey would only be just icing on the cake. Jobings arena or whatever its called should just promote 1 dollar beers and say the hell with mentioning there is a hockey game.

I'm almost positive the radio is ahead of the television, which takes the excitement out of the game when you hear "Shot, scores!!" a few seconds ahead of the play

8-0 for Philly over CBJ right now. Columbus will be giving out the beer for free after a game like that by thier team. Drown thier collective sorrows for having a goalie that can't stop a ballon. 4 goals on 16 shots tonight. Scott Howson is unemployed on Monday morning. I'd bet 24 of Budwieser on it.

I think there is a 7 second delay between the TV and the Radio. Remember the Jackson clothing debacle. Gives time for an edit. I think that is the reason why.

I had hoped that the team in Phoenix would move to Winnipeg, so it would be the same franchise and the same records and the same "remember him" and blah blah blah. It would have been more fitting... but then it would have been REALLY obvious that bettman screwed up. I suppose that's why it didn't happen.

Forget 1st in the West. Toronto & Washington losing tonight means that an Oilers win tonight would place them tops in the league (until the Pitt vs LA finishes).

Listen to Ched on your computer. It is on about a 45 second delay. Then pause your PVR enabled TV about that much time. You may have to fiddle with it a bit to synch up but at least you won't have to listen to Mark "I know next to nothing about sports" Lee.

ha! mix n match!

what's with the jam though? we are getting out hit by a bunch of old timers and O'Sullivan?

that second period was brutal. get the smelling salts out boys. time to dine n dash.

At least the Leafs lost... but I'd hate to think that our future was tied to their's. I will never cheer for that team. Whatever cosmic force is linking them with the Oil must be severed? It's probably The Spectre. He's always linking Earth 1 and Earth 2, or holding them apart... anyway one or the other.
