G71 2016-03-12 Oilers vs Bettman’s Pet Puppies

Game Notes EDM vs ARI


Arizona Coyotes (Head Coach: Dave Tippett) at Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan)

NHL Game #1026, Rexall Place, 2016-03-12 08:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Coyotes 4-0

Referees: Frederick L’Ecuyer, Steve Kozari
Linesmen: Greg Devorski, Shane Heyer

Three Stars: Mike Smith; Antoine Vermette; Michael Stone

  • Seems to me like the Oilers decided the best way to compensate for their horrible defense was to try and keep it in the Coyotes end as much as possible. Might have worked were it not for the minor issue of not being able to score!
  • OK, give Mike Smith some credit – 44 saves, yeesh.
  • Speaking of which: NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE! Warms my heart to see Nugey back out there.
  • A lot of the Coyotes games are like this – they often get badly outplayed, there isn’t a consistent pattern to explain why they win more than they should, but they do and they did. Tonight it was largely goaltending.
  • In any case, I wouldn’t bet on them to repeat that next year, but cold comfort tonight on a night when the Oilers probably should have won instead of getting the sh*t kicked out of them. I guess it’s payback for the Minnesota win.
  • Nuge is probably exhibit #1 – strong comeback game, should have had a point or two, just couldn’t quite find the range. McDavid as well, though I’m not convinced I like that line.
  • I thought Yak had an excellent game as well, embellishment penalty aside … though the kid just can’t exit the zone when he’s on the left side.
  • TAYLOR HALL DREW A PENALTY!  Circle this game in your diary!!!
  • Good Gord, do we desperately need a big accurate shot on the point, especially on the PP. I bet that alone would be worth five wins. Crazy the amount of talent this team has up front now, yet the number of critical gaps and shortcomings elsewhere is mindboggling.
  • For the Yotes, helluva game from Hanzal and that Rieder kid. Why can’t we draft players like that?
  • By stat, Reinhart Oesterle had a solid solid game, while Seksy Fayne a mediocre one. By eye, I thought Reinhart Oesterle had a solid game, and Seksy Fayne a terrible one. Sekera in particular struggled and made mistakes on the first two goals, one on not tying up the stick and the other on a terrible pinch that resulted in a 2 on 1. The rink maps are pretty telling.

Game at a Glance


Goal Overview

I think the tip-in on the first goal was closer than 17 ft (and so much more dangerous than what I have it rated).
