G21 2016-11-23 This time the Avs eat the yellow snow

Game Notes COL vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at Colorado Avalanche (Head Coach: Jay Pandolfo)

NHL Game #296, Pepsi Center, 2016-11-23 08:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Oilers 6-3

Referees: Eric Furlatt, Tom Chmielewski
Linesmen: Shandor Alphonso, John Grandt

Three Stars: Connor McDavid; Milan Lucic; Rene Bourque

  • The Oilers entered the third period behind by a goal, and by mid period were ahead 9-3 in shots and leading 5-3. This is new!
  • Guess what, NHL? These Oilers aren’t a joke anymore. Stop paying attention to McDavid for even a second, and he’ll rip you a new one. Get used to it.
  • In the second period I tweeted this:
  • Looch responded with a four point night. For my next prediction: the sun will rise tomorrow.
  • Dr. Drai appeared to have forgotten about himself for a while there too, but now he’s remembered.
  • Another game, another ten foot average shot distance advantage. Ho hum! (That’s massive by the way). As far as the stats go, it’ s nice to see the scoreboard dominance match the shots aka process dominance. Sustainability = team is for real. Other than that, take a look at the Nugey line rink map, and also should note that my stats were absolutely head over heels in love with Russell and Sekera this game.
  • We should be clear about this: the Avs are not a particularly good team, and the Oilers *should* beat them. The Oil made it tough on themselves early with a handful of really bad brainfarts. But this was also the kind of game they’ve lost in the past, playing down to the level of the opponent and leaving it in the hands of luck (usually bad). That they worked to ensure that didn’t happen today is very commendable. Looking forward: Arizona (who suck this year, and sucked last year but did have some unsustainable percentages bloating their record) beat the Oilers like a government mule last season. That simply cannot happen this season, and the next two games the Oilers need to do some throat stepping. Rip ‘n’ tear, Bruno, rip ‘n’ tear!
