G6 2016-10-23 Jets can’t fly through oil

Game Notes WPG vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at Winnipeg Jets (Head Coach: Paul Maurice)

NHL Game #77, Investors Group Field, 2016-10-23 01:00:00PM (GMT -0600)

Oilers 3-0

Referees: Gord Dwyer, Francois StLaurent
Linesmen: Vaughan Rody, Ryan Galloway

Three Stars: Cam Talbot; Zack Kassian; Mark Letestu

  • Today’s game notes are delayed due to sunshine (seriously, the time change was problematic)
  • So rather than my usual notes, I’m going to do something a little different.
  • Yes, it’s true, the Oilers won this game on the back of the Talbot Twinjet.  And McDavid was a little quiet but Klefbom and Larsson were masterful defensively (once again – check out the rink map).
  • But the Oilers overall were also full value for the win.
  • To show you why I think so, let me do something a little different, and walk you through an annotated gameflow. You tell me if this jives with your impression of the game.  I’ve put arrows and numbers on the chart, and the correspondingly numbered explanatory text just below.

  1. The game starts relatively evenly for the first ten minutes. It’s a small thing, but for this team relatively important. If they can avoid getting down early, they can get other teams into more of a track meet.
  2. In any case, about halfway through the first, the Jets begin a massive push that lasts through 5:00 of the second. This is where Talbot shines – the Jets come away with nothing.
  3. To their credit, the Oilers now begin a massive pushback of their own, one that lasts through the rest of the second period.
  4. And unlike the Jets, the Oilers score on their big push, starting with Letestube’s shortie.
  5. By the end of the second, the shot metrics on this one are basically even up – but the Oilers have a stranglehold on the scoreboard.
  6. Now the third period is where the Oilers really earned this game. Yes, the Jets pushed back a little bit and won it via the shot metrics. But when you look at a little thing called score effects, that pushback on a 3-0 game should have been massive. Perhaps the Jets were intimidated by Tal-Bot 3000 and just weren’t feeling it, but its also true that the Oilers did not go into so much of a shell that they let the Jets get a sniff of a real comeback. And that’s a thing.

The result is that while WPG were ahead on most counts, the Oilers took this one on the score adjusted Corsi, 54.4%.

That’s an indication of a victory at full value. That’s a sign of a maturing team. That’s a significant up arrow for this season, moreso than most of the games so far IMO (including the St. Louis game).

You might not have been expecting encouraging words from curmudgeonly me, but you’re getting them anyway!

BONUS POINTS: Vancouver lost. Oilers in first place in the Pacific Division!
