Another good effort, but moral victories don’t count. Final Score: 3-2 Ducks.
Having a back to back against the Sharks and Ducks is like getting kicked in the balls by the lady that ripped off your tearaways (just me?). If 6 hours of punishment is your thing, you were probably into it. If you’ve got dainty baby feelings like I do, seeing these two games on the schedule was like having the NHL schedule maker steal my Dunkaroos. It’s not cool and it’s uncalled for. Not that it really matters at this point. *sigh*
Last night was probably one of the best examples of ELPH that I’ve seen in a while. Unexpectedly,the Oilers followed that up with another round of it. Who would have thought that we’d get two competitive games against California teams on back to back nights!? (Quick, everyone buy a lotto ticket) Speaking of effort, how good was Taylor Hall tonight? The guy was flying and getting chances at will. At the end of the day, the good effort wasn’t good enough for a win. At least the draft whiners are happy.
Wrap it up…

The Bright Side

  • Viktor Fasth we speak your name!
  • Gene Principe put a hockey stick in his pants – I love that man
  • Taylor Hall was a chance machine
  • Everyone sit down…they scored a Power Play goal!

The Face Palmers

  • Dress like a seat night in Anaheim
  • Twitter was more interesting than long stretches of the game
  • Corey Perry is awesomely annoying and it upsets me

Nation Charity Playoff Draft

Just because the Oilers are a pile of suck and can’t make the playoffs to save our lives doesn’t mean the playoffs aren’t happening. Since we’ll all be watching anyway, it’s time for you to head over to and sign up for the Nation Charity Pool.
This year, the sign up fee is only $10 and part of the proceeds are going to the Inner City Children’s Program. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for a great cause and bestow upon the winners some heavenly prizes. And don’t act like you won’t spend $10 on something dumb anyway.  New Pogs can wait, helping others cannot.
