That wasn’t all bad by the Oil tonight.
The third period like it was going to be a throw away – but a couple of quick goals and the Oil went into the final frame down by only a single goal. And it turned out to be an entertaining 20 minutes to round things out to boot. No need to change channels over to HBO or Fox tonight, the Oilers did a fine job of keeping us entertained until the final whistle.
Still, the squadron hasen’t scored a powerplay goal since 1982 and a loss is a loss. But on the race to the bottom of the ocean the Oilers are making it entertaining at the very least.
OTHER POINTS FOR DEBATE
- Petry had a great game and was given mad ice time by Renney down the stretch. This guy looked solid all night.
- Gagner, Omark and Paajarvi-Svensson had some decent chemistry going tonight. Not too shabby at all.
- You have to wonder why Tambellini was playing his cards so close to his chest with regards to Whitney’s status early in his interview. If the guy needs surgery, he needs surgery. Nothing should be kept more secret than the status of a player on the 29th place team in the league. Well played Admiral.
