Game Notes VAN vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at Vancouver Canucks (Head Coach: Willie Desjardins)

NHL Game #1228, Rogers Arena, 2016-04-09 08:00:00PM (GMT -0600)

Canucks 4-3 (SO)

Referees: Mike Leggo, Kendrick Nicholson
Linesmen: Vaughan Rody, Lonnie Cameron

Three Stars: Hansen; Nuge; Bartkowski

  • For much of that game, it was like two bad teams playing in a meaningless game, rather than Oilers-Canucks.  Oh … wait … never mind.
  • WHAT A SAVE BY TALBOT IN OT!  Whew.
  • After that beauty goading of Dorsett by Maroon, sign that guy to a long-term extension now!
  • If you want to understand the trash that is NHL reffing, just look at that horrendous uncalled trip on Hall and the tiny called slash to Hall with 7 seconds left.  I get that retaliation is a problem, but that is still just sickening.
  • Awesome game from Nurse. Getting hit in the throat pisses him off I guess?
  • Sweet games from the Nuge and Yak.  So Hall and Nuge work.  Yak and Drai work.  Hmmm.  Unicorns … no?
  • Weird that the McDavid line was the only one that got snowed under this game –  that’s not going to happen very often.  Reinhart Oesterle got killed as well. I think they were a unit a lot.  I assumed they were against the Sedins, but they weren’t – that was Seksy Fayne, and they did just fine.  Just a bad game I guess.
  • I hope both Nail and Nuge are Oilers next year, but likely Yak City is gone for peanuts (and hopefully to a team that will let him play with a skill centre most games)

And with that, another ugly Oiler season comes to an end.  Hope you found these post-games useful and interesting.  I plan to continue with them next season as well, with some planned improvements.

In the meantime, I’ll be working on a bunch of post mortem articles on the season, published either here or over at Beer League Heroes.

Have a good summer!

Some strange choices by TMac for the shoot out.  Korpikoski and Maroon before Hall and Yak?
