1st PERIOD

- Welcome folks to the nooner game between the Oilers and the Stars / Jeff Deslauriers is going to get the start in net for the Oil.
- The Puck Has Been Dropped! GOILERS!!!
- Pretty even so far for both teams. 5:00 minutes have been played.
- Stars PP. Potulny goes for Hooking at 5:42
- No damage done by the Stars as they failed to score on the PP. Oilers should gain some momentum from the kill and get going. Good start.
- There is 12:16 left in the 1st and the shots are 2 for the Oilers and 4 for the Stars
- @Nick_OilersFan Your right. It's like we are watching a glorified practice. Oilers vs Stars 6:14 minutes left in the 1st. #pickupthepace
- Stars score. Benn taps in an easy rebound at 15:51. 1-0 Stars .
- The Stars take a penalty so it's a PP for the Oilers
- The pace has really picked up now. 2:00 minutes left in the 1st
- The Stars kill it off but score a few seconds later with 30 seconds left. #Oilers looked sloppy on the play. 2-0 Stars
- That's it for the 1st period. The Oilers need to get going and play better in their own end.
- ONronaldo Oilers would be such a better team if they could find a league that played 19 minute periods

2nd PERIOD

- Game On!!! Visnovsky scores for the #Oilers / 2-1 Stars / Visnovsky from Nilsson and Smid at 2:15 of the 2nd period
- Niskanen takes a Hgh Stick penalty at 4:51. PP for the #Oilers
- 11:39 left in the 2nd period and the Oilers are looking more fired up.
- Souray hammers Brendan Morrow. It was a good hard hit. / 2-1 Stars / Oiler shots 19 / Stars shots 22 / 9:40 left in the 2nd
- 5:44 left in the 2nd and it's still 2-1 Stars
- Stars are going to get a Power Play with 5:10 left in the 2nd. It's a Too Many Men call. Jacques to serve it.
- The Stars can't score and Gagner is back out on the ice. (he served it, not Jacques)
- Great chance by Penner
- Oilers played a better 2nd period. The score is 2-1 Stars.

3rd PERIOD

- It's GAME ON!!!
- Edmonton is going to get a PP chance here
- Oilers don't score but are playing well. Nilsson is like a born again Oiler.
- 11:30 left and the #Oilers are applying some good pressure.
- 8:00 minutes left and the #Oilers really need a goal here. Could this be time 4 a Strudwick goal? Or a Smid goal? Or maybe a Stortini goal?
- YEAH!!! Oilers score. Smid scores!!! 2-2 Tie Game
- I can't believe it. Smid is a stud. WOoooOooOoo!!!! GOILERS!
- RT SportsnetJim For Smid - it was only the 4th goal in his entire career.....right about now Pat Quinn will take it
- One minute left in the 3rd period 2-2 Tie Game
- Overtime it is. Great game so far and I'd expect the same in OT. Now who is the hero?
- Cogliano and Nilsson have looked good in this game. I'm sure they will see some ice in OT

OVERTIME

- Good action in the OT. Back and forth play with secent chances for both teams.
- One Minute Left in the Overtime period.
- Souray has been great today. He's been a great leader for the Oilers
- Overtime is over and it's off to the Shootout. / 2-2 Tie Game

SHOOTOUT

- Ok the #Stars are shooting 1st. Richards is stopped by Deslauriers.
- O'Sullivan is up for the #Oilers. He scores on Turco. NICE!!!
- James Neal is up for the #Stars. And he doesn't score.
- Sam Gagner is now up for the #Oilers. Does he have the moves??? No goal.
- The #Stars have Eriksson shooting now. He scores as JDD went for the poke check. 1 goal now for each team
- Bobby Nilsson is the #Oilers guy now. He is stopped by Turco.
- This is it. If Dallas scores it's over. Ribero can't score. Oilers still alive.
- Who's next for the Oilers? Dustin Penner. He can't score either. Another poke check given out.
- Brendan Morrow misses the net. This is a game in itself
- Horcoff can do it right? COME ON HORCS!!! He SCORES!
- OILERS WIN!!! OILERS WIN!!! That's two in a row. I think it's called a streak.
- WOOoooOOOooOOOoo!!!!
- 3 stars of the game: #1 Deslauriers #2 Turco #3 Smid
- Thanks for following along. Now it's time to party like it's a Saturday night. What?  It is? WOOOO!

OILERS GAME STATS




STARS GAME STATS




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

BEERS

Ladislav Smid - The guy played his best game as an Oiler.  Not only did he score and get an assist, he had 9 hits.  That's right. 9 hits.  Holy crap!  He was a machine out there.  He plays so well with Visnovsky and they seem to cover each others mistakes.  1 goal, 1 assist, +2, 21:51 of ice time, 2 shots, 9 hits and 2 blocked shots.  Now if that isn't a beer type of game then I have no idea what I'm talking about.  Solid game by Ladi.  Frosty beer time?  Cheers!

Robert Nilsson - I liked the way he played again.  He was doing a lot of things right.  Sure he made a few mistakes/dumb errors, but he played pretty good.  He picked up an assist on the Visnovsky goal and his line was very effective.  They out chanced the Stars and Bobby was a big part of it.  Miller time?  Cheers!

Jeff Deslauriers - Maybe the best Oiler of the night.  He made all the right saves at all the right times.  It's nice to see that he can be a good goalie and not just the bad one we seen a few games ago.  Let's see if the Oilers can ride his good play for another win. For playing good tonight, let's drink a nice frosty Kokanee.  Cheers!

Lubomir Visnovsky - The "other half" of the amazing 1st "D" pairing.  With all the trade talking lately (mostly just Oiler fans), this is one guy I would not let go.  He plays such a ballsy game and yet he can recover if he makes a mistake.  Tonight he was not only part of a great defence pairing, he was a standout.  His goal was sweet.  Watch the highlights above if you missed it.  For a great game... it's frosty beer time. Mmmmm. Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Souray/Gilbert (They were also a great duo.  Very solid.  Just not as good as the Vis/Smid guys.), Ryan Potulny (Had a great night on the faceoffs and was looking like a real NHL'er, even though he's not. Yet.), JF Jacques (Even though the stat sheet wasn't screaming his name, he made some timely hits.  Solid hits.), Shawn Horcoff (Scores the Shootout winner and plays ok.), Andrew Cogliano (He's really playing well lately.  Same goes for tonight.  He had himself a good game.), Ethan Moreau (The Captain had himself a decent game tonight.  It's amazing how good he can be when he doesn't try to hard.)

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

JEERS

Steve Staios/Jason Strudwick - What a bad pairing.  These guys are not a good match and should not be sent out together anymore.  They caused a few errors and were generally outplayed for the most part.  Maybe I'm biased, but these guys stink. Booooo!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Gagner/Brule/Penner Line (They ended the night a -2 and even they looked somewhat good, they sucked if that's what you call a 1st line.), Patrick O'Sullivan (A game ago he was lucky and scored. Today, not so much.),

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

GOAT WATCH

(Smokin' Ray) Ethan Moreau - He played good.

(Paq Twinn) Robert Nilsson - He also played good.

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

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - Well watching the Oilers win two in a row is quite a nice change.  First Detroit and now Dallas.  Wow!  Is it Christmas already?  When the Oilers make it to a shootout I always get worried.  But the guys pulled out the win and let's hope that they ride the wave all the way to Monday when the face the Panthers.  I'm wondering if Stortini will fight MacIntyre on Monday?  But it was a great game tonight guys!!! GOILERS!

Paq Twinn - He missed the game due to his truck being towed while he was playing poker last night.  He had to go and reclaim it.  They even charged him two days of storage.  WTF is that all about?  The string of bad luck continues.  Is this the last of it???  Let's hope so.
