Game Notes EDM vs S.J


San Jose Sharks (Head Coach: Peter DeBoer) at Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan)

NHL Game #1000, Rexall Place, 2016-03-08 07:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Sharks 3-0

Referees: Eric Furlatt, Tom Kowal
Linesmen: Jay Sharrers, Devin Berg

Three Stars: James Reimer; Logan Couture; Joe Pavelski

  • Before the game, I tweeted this:

  • After the game, well, I guess we can say the effortlessly moveable object got moved.
  • Tough start for Talbot, let in a couple he probably wants back – brilliant later, but too little too late. The Oilers aren’t going to win any games without stellar goaltending, ‘just average’ won’t cut it.
  • James Reimer was good and also lucky (or perhaps the Oilers were unlucky) – tons of chances throughout the game, especially late, couldn’t cash. Late chances were score effects, but they were real ten bell chances nonetheless.
  • I might be the only one, but watching the Hendricks injury in slomo, it sure looks like a slash to the front skate is what caused Hendo to fall. Maybe not, the angles hardly make it definitive, but it sure looks that way in the replay. Polak’s stick makes a shooting motion nowhere near the puck, but coincidentally right in the vicinity of the back of Hendo’s skate/leg. Immediately the leg slips forward. What else was he batting at? The puck was nowhere near his stick. Maybe the bees that torment Yakupov?
  • How on earth anyone can criticize Nurse for jumping Polak is beyond me. After a string of uncalled chippy plays the entire game, and then what *looked* like a slash that caused an injury, should he just have been a gentleman? The Oilers have been too passive too long – I’ll take an unjustified beatdown over an unsettled score anyday. The Oilers have too often been on the opposite end of those.
  • The call on Nurse was bush league too (should have been an instigator, meaning a one game suspension), but I suspect the refs felt some culpability for letting the Sharks get away with murder the entire game. In any case, meaningless calls in the Oilers favour late in the game seems to be part of the reffing standard.
  • One day I hope to write game notes where I don’t have to mention the reffing.

Defensemen

The stats suggest Clendening had a great game with Nurse, Pardy Reinhart struggled. I honestly didn’t see a huge difference in the D – they weren’t good but they weren’t bad. The entire team just didn’t have enough edge playing a tired team, and let down after the first goal.
