Game Day: Oilers vs Wings

So Dicky has sat out a couple games, what does that mean? His days as an Oiler might be numbered according to sportsnet. With Souray and Pitkanen eventually returning this month, someone is out. The Oilers website has Tarnstrom drawing into tonight's game, paired with Smid, along with Pouliot. Roli gets the start but Garon will get one very soon, according to MacT. With Hasek and his creaky hip out, Osgood starts. Whoa, is this 1998 or what? Anyways, following a great shootout win on Sunday against the Ducks, who are just as sucky as we are this year, this could be the turning point for the Oilers. It'd be nice to see them get on a roll and win two games again.

I'm watching TSN right now and they're saying that it'll be the job of Gilbert and Grebeshkov to shut down Zetterberg's line, the number one line in hockey. Can I just say.....WHAT? Gilbert, yes good idea but Grebeshkov? That boy is redefining the word chaos!!

Anyways, I'm looking for a victory tonight as Cogliano, Gagner and Hemsky are freakin' flying. Did you see Cogs short-handed goal? How about the shootout goal by Gagner? Fantastic. This team is fun to watch. They may let you down defensively but bloody hell, they are exciting at times!!

Oilers win 4-1.

Oh what a heart breaker. 24 seconds to go. Damn Tarnstrom was the one that got beat too.

I'm not sure they're going to be too quick to get rid of Dick now eh? Rough luck losing Greene that way, we can't even trade hime now. When I was a kid, my uncle had a horse that broke it's ankle... he shot it.

My first thought: shit, Greene is not trade-able! ARGH!!!

I'm going email that idea to the Oilers. Keep your fingers crossed! lol

Yawn, another loss. Why not?

Scarlett said...

We're rebuilding....we're rebuilding. We're rebuilding. We're rebulding.

That still isn't helping!

Is it just me or is this team worse than last year? That's what I thought.

Something has to happen, a trade, a firing, a slap upside the head...to get this team going.

Then again, I did have fun counting the number of losses during that bad streak in the spring.
