- The Oilers played very well last night, doing a lot of things the right way. PK looked great and shut the Sharks down. If the PK isn’t sharp early the game could have been much different. If the PK can stay sharp into the playoffs the Oilers will have a real chance at success.
- The PP continues to roll which also is obviously huge in the playoffs. As we all know special teams is massive especially in the playoffs so if the Oilers can keep both the PK and the PP at the level it is now I truly believe this team can and will succeed.
- How classy was Grant Fuhr flying to San Jose to watch Cam Talbot break his record???!!! Classy move by Fuhr!
- Holy Oscar Klefbom!!! Best game of the career. Not only did he assist on every goal but he was flying out there!!! His contract might turn into one of the best deals in the N.H.L.
- Adam Larsson continues to impress me. He is so calm and so physical! Larson is playing 20 minutes a night with zero PP time. He plays against the others team best players every single game and is a whopping +21. Anyone who criticizes his game clearly doesn’t watch the games.
- 97 is such a stud!!!
- Milan Lucic is on fire and played his best game as an Oiler last night. His hit and fight changed the game and that is EXACTLY why the Oilers signed him. I actually made my kids watch the highlights to show them where you score goals from. I bet Lucic’s three goals were no more than 6 inches out from the crease.
- Nuge seems to be coming on strong just in time for the playoffs. I’ve always liked him game but he looks more confident of late and I believe he will be excellent in the playoffs.
- I am so sick and tired of people on twitter whining and complaining. Even last night people were complaining over the Hall trade. Complaining that Hall is better than Lucic. Complaining that the team is in cap purgatory moving forward. Jesus the team is playing great so enjoy it!!! I have faith that the Harvard educated and Stanley Cup winning GM will figure it out. Look what he has done so far!!!
- The Oilers have the best record against the Western conference. Think about that for a second. Teams in the West used to beat the Oilers for fun!
- Cam Talbot was excellent as usual. His penalty shot save saved the game for the team.
- I can’t wait to watch playoff hockey again!!!
- My wife’s cousin wrote and Oilers song. Check it out.
- Playoff baby!!!
