B&J #87 Edmonton Oilers Recap vs Phoenix Coyotes (11/23/09)



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.


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

- Who's Out? Who's in? Devan Dubnyk has been called up and it looks like he will back up for Deslauriers.  Here is the injury list

- Quinn had a chat yesterday with the vets of the team.  I'm sure it was a good thing for these guys to talk about what needs to be said.  Let's hope it translates for the better.

- Halfway through the 3rd, the Oilers are lucky to still be leading 4-0.

BEERS

Jeff Deslauriers - He records his 1st ever NHL shutout.  He was brilliant tonight.  He made huge saves and looked good handling the puck.  He really stepped up his game tonight and it was much needed.  He made 36 saves and if anyone is thirsty, it would be Jeff.  Frosty mug of Bud for the game breaker?  Cheers!

Sheldon Souray -He scores a lucky goal and picks up a well earned assist on the Horcoff goal.  I'd have to say he also stepped up for this game.  Maybe the Quinn talk is going to pay off after all.  Souray was dominant tonight and really played a tough and solid game.  He deserves a cold Stella. Cheers!

Ales Hemsky - He played really well tonight.  He never gave up and was flashy all night.  His goal was a nice deke from a nice pass from Penner.  I thought that it was cool for the fans at the game to see him score this goal as it is his 100th career NHL goal. This is the Hemsky that made me like the cut of his jib. Glad he's back.  A frosty beer Hemmer? Cheers!

Shawn Horcoff - He played a great game despite not being able to take many faceoffs (0W-2L=0%).  He scores with a nice tip in form a Souray shot and gets an assist on the Souray goal.  Horcoff did all the little things right tonight and was rewarded by the hockey gods with some points.  It's Miller Time... Cheers!

Ethan Moreau -  I hate to even say it but he was pretty good.  He also took notice of what Quinn had to say and he showed it tonight.  He didn't take a BTP (o hits in the game is probably why) and he actually got some minutes throughout the entire game.  Go figure huh? The Captain even scores the game winner by scoring the 1st goal of the game. An amazing night so have an amazing beer.   Mmmmm... Pilsner. Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Ryan Potulny (He played a good game and picked up an assist and some extra minutes.), Lubomir Visnovsky (He plays solid and picks up 2 assists.  He responded well tonight and was a team best +2.), Dustin Penner (He was screening and winning faceoffs.  This guy can do anything this year.), Gilbert Brule (He plays so consistant this season.  He picks up an assist and had 2 hits.), Ladislav Smid (The mistakes from last game are long gone.  He played solid and was a +1 and I've allready forgoten about last game.), Sam Gagner (He played well but was more ivisable than his two linemates.), Andrew Cogliano (Had a real good game with Moreau and Potulny.  He just needs to play his own game and the points will start flowing.)

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

JEERS

None -

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Jason Strudwick (If not for the 4 blocked shots, all you would have is 4 giveaways to show for your game.  +1 or not, you need to be better even though I know you can't.)

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

GOAT WATCH

(Smokin' Ray) Ethan Moreau - He played well.  Damn goats! *shakes fist*

(Paq Twinn) Robert Nilsson - He didn't play again. *dances jig*

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

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - That was a great game to watch.  It was exciting with all the goals but was a little nerve racking when the Oilers were stinking it up in the 3rd.  JDD played great and the Oilers really needed that from him tonight.  Talk about a confidance booster... 1st career shutout.  I ended up liking the line changes that Quinn did.  Man is Penner great so far this year.  He blows my mind.  Faceoffs, shots, hits,  you name it.  The dude can do it.  The best part of the game is that it was a PPV and the Oilers actually do something great.  What a way to start off the week.  GOILERS!

Paq Twinn - Much better game from the Oil tonight, for the most part anyway. Played a great opening 20 min. Then played well enough to keep the 2nd scoreless, until Horc scores with .1 second remaining...again. This time it counted. After getting a late goal like that you'd think they would come out like gangbusters in the 3rd...WRONG! The Oilers hung JDD out to dry, the kid shut the door though. JDD was phenomenal in the 3rd, may have won the game cause the rest of the team were just a bunch oif headless chickens. With all of this in mind, a win is a win. GOILERS! Game Grade: B
