B&J #83 Edmonton Oilers Recap vs. Thrashers (11/15/09)

Welcome to Oilers Jambalaya - An Edmonton Oilers Hockey Blog. Beers & Jeers is a dual collaboration between Smokin' Ray and Paq Twinn. We hope you enjoy our Edmonton Oilers full game recap.


- Souray, Horcoff and Reddox all draw back in tonight.  It looks like Dean Arsene isn't going to play now that Souray is going to play.  Let's hope his headaches don't come back because of rushing into playing so quick.  He's barely practiced.

- I still cannot believe how many PPV games there are this month. It's going to kill my wallet next month when the bills come in.

Edmonton Oilers - 2

Atlanta Thrashers - 3



Ethan Moreau - I usually won't tack a BTP on a guy in the 2nd period, but in this case it's fully worthy. The Oilers just scored to make it a 2-1 Oiler lead. Captain Dumb Ass takes a lazy Hooking penalty and gives the Thrashers the man advantage. What happens? They score and tie the game at 2. Way to be a leader.



Goals - Horcoff, Penner (1 each)
Assists - Cogliano, Staios, Stortini, Hemsky (1 each)
Points - 6 Players tied at 1 each
Best +/- - Cogliano, Staios, Penner, Souray, Hemsky (+1 each)
Worst +/- - 13 Players tied a 0
Most Penalty Minutes - Moreau, Staios, Visnovsky (2 Mins each)
Most Time On The Ice -Souray (25:10)
Least Time On The Ice - Stortini (9:39)
Most Shots - Gilbert, O'Sullivan, Moreau (5 each)
Most Hits - Reddox (3 hits)
Most Giveaways - Smid, Horcoff, Moreau (1 each)
Most Takeaways - Moreau (2)
Most Blocked Shots - Strudwick (2)
Best Faceoffs - Gagner (5W-4L=56%)
Worst faceoffs - Potulny (2W-5L=29%), Penner (6W-11L=35%)



Nikolai Khabibulin - Once again Habbi stands up and delevers for the Oilers.  It's just too bad his team stinks.  He did his best and you can't ask for much more than that. Good job.  Frosty beer? Cheers!

Gilbert Brule - By far the hardest working Oiler tonight.  He tried his ass of and did everything he could to help this team win.  Is Quinn going to finally see what we see in this guy?  He was solid.  Have a drink on me. Cheers!

Lubomir Visnovsky - Perhaps he's been quietly our best player all season.  I can only remember one bad game by him and it wasn't tonight.  He's beer worthy today. Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Laddy Smid (He played well, just not good enough for a beer.), The 2nd Line (They played well but never scored. The three of them sure can pass/cycle the puck.), Tom Gilbert (He was good. Too bad he's stuck with Strudwick.), Sheldon Souray (He seemed off tonight but played a ton. he just needs a game or two and he'll be back at the beer table with me slamming Buds.



Ethan Moreau - I wish Tambo would do something with you. You do nothing but drag this team down and pass the blame to whatever you don't contribute to.  It's time to man up and be a leader.  20 games into the season and you have done NOTHING to make this team a better hockey club.  I'm tired of it and I'm sure everyone else is (never mind your teammates).  Take a hike loser. Boooooo!

Jason Strudwick - He's a funny and classy guy, but he sucks at hockey. He's another guy the Oilers could do without.  Booooo!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): The Moreau/Cogliano/Stortini Line (For a "bigger" line they sure looked slow and not tough.  I'd split these guys up by removing Moreau.),



(Smokin' Ray) Ethan Moreau - Holds up middle finger.

(Paq Twinn) Robert Nilsson - Did not play. (concussion)



Smokin' Ray - Talk about another sh*tty PPV game brodcast by the Edmonton Oilers.  I heard one of the reps (can't remember who?) talk about the PPV's last week on the radio. Let me say this whoever you are, THIS IS NOT ON A LEVEL OF CBC/TSN/SPORTSNET. Quit trying to pull a fast one on us.  We are not stupid fans and we know when we are getting quality. The segements during the 1st and 2nd intermission were good.  It's the rest of the content that sucked. 

Ok. Actualy hockey talk now. This team sucks.  This team has no heart.  This team can't fight their way out of a paper box.  This team is in serious trouble now. It's the 20 game mark and with a record of 8-10-2, that's pretty bad.  The Oilers forgot to show up for the 1st period and then when they did decide to appear, the Captain took the BTP and allowed the Thrashers to tie it up.  After that it just seemed like the Oilers were good, but just a slight step behind.  I can only expect Quinn to roll some heads tonight and I'm expecting a better showing tommorow night.  F*^% $#%@!!! There... I feel better.

Paq Twinn - He missed the game.

  1. Good thoughts for the most part guys... Either I was hallucinating or watching a different hockey game--I thought the Oilers second line was god-awful. Apparently, they did generate some decen scoring chances at evens.

    I thought the fourth line was better at getting the cycle going down low.
