Thanksgiving is a harvest time celebration. Unfortunately, we’re only celebrating the harvest tonight. Final score: 5-4 Canucks.
Everything feels right about seeing the Oilers playing on Saturday night. The fact that it’s also Thanksgiving is an amazing bonus. Thanksgiving has all the cool stuff from Christmas without any of the BS. You drink too much, you eat too much, and you watch the Oilers. Ok, so Thanksgiving isn’t until tomorrow (or is it Monday?) but we’re still thankful for beers and hockey anyway!
What a rollercoaster ride. This game filled me with emotions that I didn’t even know the Oilers could provide anymore. There were highs, there were lows, and there were many rums in between. It was an exciting game to watch, and I think we can all be thankful for that. All in all that was a hell of a hockey game. Holy dyna. Unfortunately, the Oilers couldn’t stay out of the box tonight and that ended up killing them.
Let’s wrap it up…
THE BRIGHT SIDE
- Beauty goal by Brad Hunt! What a shot. Love seeing guys get their first NHL goal.
- Any time Marcobello scores, Jeanshorts’ pants tighten.
- Excellent first period.
- Uncle Yessy with a beauty shorthanded goal.
- It is worth repeating that the OILERS SCORED A SHORTHANDED GOAL.
- Fasth was there when he needed to be.
- NUGEY THE WARLORD!
THE FACE PALMERS
- Even though they’ve been in the league for a decade, the Sedin twins still creep me out.
- Refs completely dropped the ball on that hand pass.
- The Oilers were really struggling with the Vancouver power play. The PK needs work.
- Reffing = Brutal
- Gap control. Seriously.
- 7000 consecutive penalties. Not good. Very bad. Many suck.

Now all Nuge needs to do is have sex with a girl and he will become a man.

Apparently the 10 lbs Nuge gained this summer were all in the balls. #bigballs
