Avalanche -verb: To overwhelm with an extremely large amount of anything.

An avalanche can be used in the form of a noun as well, but based on how the Oilers are playing right now, Avalanche might be more appropriate in the form of a verb tonight. The Oilers have been overwhelmed in multiple areas lately, so it is very possible the Avalanche could inundate the Oilers in a variety of ways this evening.

Tom Renney has seen some horrendous performances this season, and he has remained rather calm throughout the first 19 games, but tonight's performance in Phoenix finally pushed him over the edge. I'm amazed his patience lasted this long.

What does Barf have to do with the Oilers, you ask? Stick with me.

Tom Renney pulled a few interesting tricks out of his coaching trunk yesterday during practice at Millenium Place. He isn't desperate, yet, but clearly he was looking to find a way to stop the bleeding, hemorrhaging. The Oilers have lost five straight and have been outscored 30-8 in that span. Yesterday Renney tried to instill some FUN back into his team.
