G38 2016-12-31 Oilers lived in a VAN down by the river

Game Notes EDM vs VAN


Vancouver Canucks (Head Coach: Willie Desjardins) at Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan)

NHL Game #557, Rogers Place, 2016-12-31 08:00:00PM (GMT -0700)

Canucks 3-2 (SO)

Three Stars: Jacob Markstrom; Connor McDavid; Bo Horvat

  • I’m just catching up with this game on PVR (was out partying last night), so no post-game commentary today
  • Statistically, the much maligned Kris Russell appears to have had a whale of a game. Check out his rink map paired with Matt Benning.
  • Heavy time against the Sedins for Leon Draisaitl – and he manhandled them. He is indeed Kopitaring, er I mean coming, into his own!
  • He scored a PP goal, but McDavid is not ripping it up right now, and I’d have to say it’s time to move away from the Lucic-Ebs combo as his wingers. There is good evidence that those two specific guys are just not a good fit for each other (when the team has substituted either one of them out, e.g. Maroon for Lucic, or Pulju for Ebs, the resulting lines have been significantly more impactful. At the moment, you can have one or the other, but not both at the same time).
  • Nice to get the point, but still a disappointing result against one of the bottom feeders of the league that the Oilers should be much better able to handle.
