- Tough game against a good team. Figures that the Sharks would be embarrassed after laying an egg against the Flames and come out snarly against the Oilers!
- Nonetheless, despite the Sharks strong play (see Game at a Glance for visual evidence of the damage), some good games from some key Oilers, especially Hall, Drai, and Nilsson was enough to grab an OT win.
- Four in a row! First time since 2009!
Note: shot data for this game wasn’t posted by the NHL til this morning.
Game at a Glance
I find the Dangerous Fenwick game flow kind of interesting. By the raw numbers, the Oilers got smoked. But by the weighted numbers, it was a little closer than that, and the Oil clawed all the way back to even by the late 2nd – and the score reflected it.
Then the Sharks had an absolutely vicious run in the middle of the third to put up three goals.
Finally, the Oilers pushed back (what a good sign for a shorthanded team!) and evened it up. It seems to me like the DF trace better reflects the game – but in this case, I am literally the most biased person in the world! What do you think?

Dangerous Fenwicks and Rink Maps for Defenders
The defenders had a good game, but Nurse and Sekera gave up a lot. That’s mainly because they faced the Thornton line all night. Tough act to contain.
Gryba and Davidson – another solid game. Gotta say – maybe Chia saw something legit in Gryba. If you don’t believe the DFA – check out the rink map! He might be getting slowly better. Maybe?
