If you are new to the Nation this is how we have celebrated landslide victories since 2007. Give a listen on maximum volume and enjoy having this song in your brain banana for longer than you will care to admit.
There are several things to be pumped beyond measure about tonight.
THING ONE – POINT NIGHT
No fewer than 11 players had points for the Mighty Oilers tonite including Perron who led the way with 4. That’s unreal.
THING TWO – DUBNYK
This guy here got a shutout with Bryz sitting calmly on the bench. Talk about pressure. Good on you DD.
THING THREE – SMYTTY
Smyth had 3 points! THREE NATION! WHAT A HERO WHO CARES IF PERRON REFERRED TO HIM AS OLD IN THE SECOND INTERMISSION AHAHAHAHAHAH
We all needed this. The Oilers needed this. It is a rare shaft of heavenly light in an unhealthily dark situation so far this year. So listen to ghost ride the whip. Call friends you haven’t talked to in years. Suddenly the DJ Suitcase ugly sweater Christmas party on Friday is going to be a real shindig. Buy your tickets here in support of the ICCP.
We will personally buy you a bucket of Jack Daniels and we can discuss the win for ever and ever amen.
In the meantime let’s shower the comment section with unreasonable optimism and enjoy every minute of it,.
