G9 2016-10-30 Sens lull Oilers into a nightmarish sleep

Game Notes EDM vs OTT


Ottawa Senators (Head Coach: Guy Boucher) at Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan)

NHL Game #129, Rogers Place, 2016-10-30 07:00:00PM (GMT -0600)

Senators 2-0

Referees: Dan O’Rourke, Kevin Pollock
Linesmen: Scott Cherrey, Trent Knorr

Three Stars: Craig Anderson; Cam Talbot; Mike Hoffman

  • OK, not much to comment on this game. The Senators were determined to keep this a dull game, and the Oilers were not determined enough to fight through it.
  • Of course, not all of the Sens “slow them down” tactics were entirely legal, and the Oilers failure to make the Sens pay on the PP early was a huge factor. The refs unwillingness to call any of it in the second two was another.
  • Huge pushback in the third made it at least interesting. But Anderson was there when he needed to be.
  • Let me float this idea about what this game tells me: the Oilers can now effectively play two types of games … the track meet (at which they excel), and the ‘heavy hockey’ style (at which they can no longer be intimidated). But the dull slow checking pseudo-trap style (OTT, BUF, VAN) is still not something they’ve figured out how to play effectively.
  • As for the fancystats tonight … another fantastic game from Nuge/Poo/Kass, but your eyes probably told you that.
  • McDavid faced a heavy dose of Karlsson and Hoffman. He got double shifted with Drai’s line too. Nuge’s terrific shot metrics aside, this is one of those nights where the Drai or Nuge line needs to score. You can see from the rink map how Drai’s line with Pulju and Marron was fairly ineffective.
  • The Oilers had a lot of shots from 40 to 50 feet, in contrast to many of their previous games.
  • It’s OK, maybe the Oilers let Anderson have this one.
  • 7 & 2. Still a keeper start. TOR is next. Expect McD to be fired up and put up five points facing his hometown + that whippersnapper Matthews.
