G19 2016-11-19 D Town to be renamed Beat Down

Game Notes DAL vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at Dallas Stars (Head Coach: Lindy Ruff)

NHL Game #266, American Airlines Center, 2016-11-19 05:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Oilers 5-2

Referees: Marc Joannette, Evgeny Romasko
Linesmen: Derek Amell, Brian Mach

Three Stars: Not selected; Not selected; Not selected

  • MCHATTRICK!  Streak snapped!
  • Wait … WHICH TEAM got scored on in the first five minutes?!? Were the Oilers wearing their Road Greens or something?
  • Slick as hell first goal from The Drake. Hopefully see many more. Not sure about what the plan was for faceoffs or PK, Hendricks maybe, but Letestu has been bleeding shots like crazy this season, so I’m not that surprised he was scratched.
  • Really liked Benning’s game tonight too.
  • A few other fluky goals in there – but you *knew* the luck had to change. Statistically we might call it “PDO regressing towards the mean”, though “about damn time” is pretty good too.
  • The other night, the Oilers had reverse score effects (where they played like crap even though they were down big and the other team was in a shell). So why not reverse that too? The Oilers up 2-0 and absolutely stomped on the gas. Then softened for a while, gave up a few goals, then stiffened up again.
  • The game might have been sealed with that DAL Too Many Men penalty early in the third. They were applying crazy pressure at that point. (see the gameflow chart below). [CORRECTION: it was the Seguin tripping penalty]
  • I have an agreement with myself that I won’t comment on the reffing unless it is really atrocious. It was really really atrocious. If that call on Puljujarvi was holding, there should be 10 calls in favour of McDavid every damn night.  And the hooking call on McDavid himself. Ridiculous.  Extra credit for the Oilers winning in the face of that embarrassment.

One thought on “G19 2016-11-19 D Town to be renamed Beat Down

  1. Saw the game live. In terms of forwards being noticeable and memorable, our top 2 lines stood out. The other 2 line, outside of Pitlick’s goal (had to look up Caggiula’s Jersey # in the program guide because I had no clue who he was), didn’t stand out. Looks like their respective TOI would explain that.

    I paid attention to Russell a few shifts to give him the ol’ (unreliable) eye-ball test. He looked slow. Hard for me to keep track of his effectiveness in breakouts and defending against zone entries, but that’s what @WheatNOil’s stats are for. Your stats above suggest Russell and Sesky were a leaky boat. That seems to be a pattern for Russell (& Sekera) that, if he & his D-partner don’t plug that leak. boats will begin to sink and these sunken ships will begin to translate into losses in the W/L column.
