Game Notes STL vs EDM


Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at St. Louis Blues (Head Coach: Ken Hitchcock)

NHL Game #479, Scottrade Center, 2016-12-19 06:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Oilers 3-2 (OT)

Referees: Not given – not sure why these aren’t available anymore
Linesmen: Not given

Three Stars: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins; Leon Draisaitl; Kyle Brodziak

  • The Oilers picked this game up where they left the last one – poorly. This time Talbot didn’t save their bacon (in fact, I thought at least one of the goals was a little buttery).
  • Much better second period though, from all the lines. Wonder if McLellan peeled some paint between periods? Either way it was a massive push, but seemed to peter out after the PP failed to score.
  • Poor Pitlick. Man. One of those dirty plays (it was a dirty hit on a blatant interference on a player trying to reach the puck and somewhat defenseless as a result IMO) that the NHL does not and will not do a damn thing about.
  • Ha, gotta love that Maroon gets a goal in his hometown (which isn’t exactly Hockey Central).
  • It’s pretty embarassing to watch the Pitlick injury on a non-call, then the ticky tack penalty called ON McDavid behind the net in the offensive zone, then watch him get hacked and hooked on a breakaway preventing a shot and likely goal and … crickets. Don’t tell me there’s any semblance of fair or competent officiating in the NHL. Utter garbage.
  • That win was sweet poetic justice. It was actually a fairly even game, but when you consider the refs let the Blues pretty much get away with murder, they didn’t deserve to win. The Oilers did.
  • Unsung stats hero this game: Eric Gryba.  More than 16:00 EV minutes, led team in hits, yet also led the defense in the Corsis and the DangerFens.

One thought on “G34 2016-12-19 Oilers more entertaining than the Tarasenkshow

  1. I’m no fan of NHL reffing these days, but didn’t see the hit on Pitlick to be dirty. It was long enough into the game that the Blues would now be expecting Pitlick to be playing the body on every play. Letera likely didn’t want to get creamed and went in prepared (I know I would have). And for some reason, Pitlick reaches instead of readying to play the body. Not too dissimilar from the Krug/Shaw hit IMO.
    I’ve been very encouraged by Pitlick this year and hope he’s not out long, but I can’t blame Letera in this case.
