G77 2016-03-24 Oilers make San Hosers of us all

Game Notes S.J vs EDM


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

NHL Game #1111, SAP Center at San Jose, 2016-03-24 08:30:00PM (GMT -0600)

Oilers 6-3

Referees: Mike Leggo, Ghislain Hebert
Linesmen: Derek Nansen, Lonnie Cameron

Three Stars: Patrick Maroon; Connor McDavid; Adam Clendening

  • WHOA MAN THAT WAS FUN! That’s how these damn Oilers keep sucking us in – ’cause we care so much, and when they play well, it’s just feels so damn good, doesn’t it?
  • That first period was something to see – though not in a good way.
  • That second period and then third period was something to see – in an incredibly good way. New paint job needed in the visitors dressing room?
  • That Maroon interview may have been the best interview ever!
  • HOLY CRAP THAT MCDAVID RUSH THAT SETUP THE EVENTUAL #5 GOAL WAS JUST RIDICULOUS.
  • Nurse looked like he was hurt there for a while. Good to see him back out there.
  • I wish Taylor Hall would stop sleeping with the wives of the referees. (That’s the *only* realistic explanation for what we’ve seen all season long, isn’t it?)
  • You know, I used to really like the Sharks. I like how they play (unlike the Kings, who despite their winning ways, I detest). My sisters live in Silicon Valley, and I have good friends there from my technology days, so the Sharks are kind of my #2 team, and I’ll usually go to a game at the SAP Center when I’m down there (which is every year). But the bullshit diving and bitching and embellishment – which the refs fully buy into presumably “because veterans” – is absolutely sickening.
  • Yak plays better with skill players?!? Weird. How many times do we have to say that before the idea sticks? Not just in scoring, but he was really solid defensively this game (and I would argue to you that, based on his significantly improved possession numbers, it’s not a one time thing. The bees are still there, just not as many).
  • Look, I like TMc, and don’t buy the idea that he’s at fault for the Oilers woes. But I am mystified at times by the PP, PK, and the player deployment.
  • Stats talk: the McDavid line was just monstrously good.   Weird that the Hall line graded so poorly, especially Leon D.
  • The two Jr defensive pairings also had a very encouraging showing.  Check out the defensive tables and charts!  Nurse-Clendening were solid, and the Rhinos (ReinOes) once again KILLED IT, which I was not expecting at all, even after their solid show in ARI.  The Sharks are a step up, and apparently Rhinos > Sharks!
  • Any way … that was a fun game. Screw the lottery: GOILERS!!!

    1. Interesting. That’s probably a fair comment as far as the final score goes.

      From the Oilers point of view, I thought Talbot was good, but not great. He let in three, probably should have been two.

      Reimer was definitely the worse of the two, and probably wants two of those goals back. So in that sense, yeah, not letting in those two goals would have effectively tied things up (not counting the EN goal).

      But at the same time, I think the Oilers had the better of both the volume of chances and the quality of chances, so I don’t think the win was undeserved.

      Or to put it another way, if the two teams had gotten exactly the same goaltending, the Oilers likely win it anyway.

      Reasonable?

    1. Yeah, I’m certain it’s wrong. Maybe I should just look at the PVR and guesstimate my own answer.

      I have a whole bunch of error checks and exception traps in my code which are sarcastically commented “NHL data quality!”
