BEERS

Lubomir Visnovsky - A solid game by Lubo.  He only made one error and other than that he was great.  He picked up 2 assists and was a +3 at the end of the game.  If it wasn't for the error, it was a perfect game.  Here's a nice cold Bud. Cheers!

Ales Hemsky - He also played one heck of a game.  He was making crisp passes and fairly decent decisions.  He scores a goal and adds an assist for a two point night.  He's starting to catch Penner in points.  You know he's playing well when he fires 4 shots at the goalie.  It's Old English time! Paper bag and all.  Cheers!

Dustin Penner - The big guy may not have had any points, but he did good.  His screening is top notch and he's been pretty good in the crease area.  Never mind the fact that he is leading the team in faceoff wins.  Can he do it all?  A Pilsner for the Manitoba boy.  Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Sam Gagner (He scores a crucial goal and gives the team life.), Patrick O'Sullivan (He gets the monkey off his back and scores the game winner.), Ryan Potulny (The hard work pays off and he pots the tying goal.), Ladislav Smid (His +3 was a team best.  He's plays so mean it's fun to watch.), Gilbert Brule (He's been good for a few games now.  He had a goal and an assist.), Sheldon Souray (He sent a message to the Avs that fae hitting in not cool.  He played pretty good.)

------------------

JEERS

Tom Gilbert - He was brutal.  The first two goals were on his shift and both times he was weak at taking out his check.  Quinn then benched him for awhile and then gave him another chance where he picked up an assist on the Potulny goal.  Let's hope he understands the message.  For a bad game, Boooooo!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Jeff Deslauriers (He needs to smarten up and learn how to be sharp more consistaanly.)

-------------------

GOAT WATCH

(Smokin' Ray) Ethan Moreau - He was playing ok... till his bell was rung. 

(Paq Twinn) Robert Nilsson - Still not playing because of his concussion.

-------------------

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - What a game by the Oilers.  They were crappy for half a game and then funally picked up the pace and pulled out the win.  Deslauriers needs to play more so he doesn't look so rusty.  Besides, I thought he was going to play 20-25 games this year?  I'm hoping the Oilers can get it together in time for the Chicago game.  They have a history of beating the Oilers. Badly.

Paq Twinn - Ya, good win boys. Oilers started slow but got stronger as the game went on. JDD let in some bad ones, but didn't let in the "next one", when the team was making their come back. That was HUGE. Speaking of huge, the PK had some timely kills. The PP continued to be Hot/Cold, tonight it was cold. The 1st line didn't play well in general tonight. Brule had a good game as did Smid, Penner, O'Sullivan, Gagner and Potulny. But pretty much everyone looked average. No one stood out to me tonight. Game Grade B.
