  • So … what can one say about this game?
    • ALL HAIL TALBOT!
    • ALL HAIL POST!
    • ALSO TALBOT!
  • Yikes. This is a game where you just don’t want to look at the stats and just concentrate on the score.  That said! If you’ve read my stuff over the year, you know that I’m a big believer in the stats revealing the underlying and unvarnished truth of a game, regardless of the score. And the underlying truth of this game (and to some extent Game 1) is “oh man, that was fortunate!”
  • So does that mean I’m really worried about the remaining games – that the tide will inevitably swing in the Ducks favour?  Not so fast!
  • Inasmuch as the raw numbers look ugly, the fact also is that both games were pretty much dead even through two periods of both games.  All of the statistical edge, ALL OF IT, is from two periods and two periods alone. After the Oilers had taken the lead.
  • I’d be far more concerned if the Ducks had dominated from the get go. They did not. It was a relatively even battle, and the Oilers went ahead because they got better goaltending and better special teams. That the play was even up, on the road against a healthy rested and veteran team is a good sign for the Oilers.
  • ESPECIALLY in a game 2 where the road team has won game 1 – the home team tends to play desperate and the road team tends to be a bit complacent. I expected this to be a lopsided win for the Ducks UNLESS Talbot went psycho – which he did.
  • I expect a MUCH better game from the Oilers in Game 3.  The Ducks won’t go down easy, but based on what they showed through four of the six periods so far, winning four games in five against Talbot is a tall mountain to climb.
