G12 2016-11-05 Oilers steal one in Crooklyn

Game Notes NYI vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at New York Islanders (Head Coach: Jack Capuano)

NHL Game #167, Barclays Center, 2016-11-05 05:00:00PM (GMT -0600)

Oilers 4-3 (SO)

Referees: Jon McIsaac, Kevin Pollock
Linesmen: Brian Mach, Kory Nagy

Three Stars: Not selected

  • To me, that looked like two disjointed struggling teams trying not to lose. Except for OT. That was boss.
  • Give the Oilers sh*t for not being ready to start the game – but give them credit for battling back.
  • Maybe McDavid has spoiled me – I expect exciting hockey every game now, and games like this (which were probably par for the course the last few years) are now excruciating.
  • That knee on knee with Pulju was brutal. Want to know what’s wrong with the NHL today? That kind of stick-the-knee-out incident, which when it happens is pretty much always intent to injure, in the refs eyes was worth two minutes. So was the tripping penalty to Pitlick. Anyone else have an issue with that?
  • I suppose in fairness, the disjointedness for the Oilers was partly a result of being down two forwards. I thought adding all those big guys was supposed to stop teams from doing what Kadri did to McDavid last game and Seidenberg did to Pulju this game?
  • How on earth did a powerplay that looked really pedestrian and peripheral score two goals?? I guess in the rearview we applaud how many, not how.
  • And how does Eberle not score on that in OT?!?! And then McD and Eberle. Thankfully the Oilers won in the shootout, or we would have been deconstructing those chances for days! I liked Eberle’s game for the first time in a while, but I hope the Oilers have a good stock of snake anti-venom stored up somewhere.
  • The Oilers HAVE to figure out a way to take advantage of McDavid’s full on rush that ends up with him behind the net. It’s great to watch but far too often nothing is coming of it because there isn’t a trailer in position for McDavid to hit.
  • I’m glad Letestube won it, but … playing him ahead of McDavid in the SO?
  • Some really wide disparities between raw and danger numbers tonight. According to my stats, the Oilers best players were Eberle, Looch, Klefbom, and Larsson. Sekera/Benning struggled, despite Benning’s assists. What say you?

One thought on “G12 2016-11-05 Oilers steal one in Crooklyn

  1. Totally agree, the team is bigger but still lets its stars take a beating legal and not legal. If they want McDavid to play 80-82 games, the players need to take care of him.
    I see Toronto’s Kadri was taking liberties again tonight, except the Canucks went after him. The oilers just stand around when one of their own is injured because of a cheap shot. Now Lucic has the big contract I guess this is beneath him, if it is, then they need to find someone who will be the policeman for the team.
    The league is still run like its a mom and pop league, what other sport can you deliberately take out some ones knees and get a huge 2 minute penalty.
    If this is soccer you are done for this game and probably the next 3 games, its called protecting the stars because people pay to see the stars, that’s why the NFL protects the quarter backs. Not the NHL though, they will tell you . you don’t understand or its part of the game. Taking a players knees out can be career ending, the league should grow up and be a big boy league and deal with this.
