#106 B&J Edmonton Oilers vs San Jose Sharks Recap (1/16/10)



Welcome to Oilers Jambalaya - An Edmonton Oilers Hockey Blog. The 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? That's a good question.  Brule and Pisani are really sick and won't play. Horcoff is also sick but the Oilers have him in the lineup.  Even with Horcoff and Strudwick in, the Oilers are still one guys short.  It's a little shocking that since the Stockton Thunder (the Springfield Falcons ECHL minor team) is only an hour and a half away, they didn't call up a guy to fill the vacant spot.

- Here the Oilers have not won more than one game in the last 14 games.  That alone is disheartening. Ugh!

GAME VIDEO REPLAY



------------------
BAD TIMING PENALTY

None - It's funny. Just as I was shaking my head that Gagner took a penalty like that in the 3rd, O'SUllivan scores the Oilers first shorthanded goal of the year.  Maybe it was a good timing penalty?

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

BEERS

Sam Gagner - Sam was great.  He was all over the place and really did a good job at controlling the play during his shifts.  He and Cogliano made a good play to each other, then Gagner fires it across to Grebeshkov who scores.  Very good chemistry between those two (13 & 89).  While his line did get burned on a goal, it was the Thorton line so we kind of seen it coming.  All in all, a great game for Gagner. He deserves a nice cold beer. Cheers!

Andrew Cogliano - Mr. Speedy was also really good.  Another reason why Quinn needs to never play him with Moreau and Stortini.  Cogs was flying and played the wing really well.  He could have did a little more in the physical department but it's OK, he made plays and generated chances.  How about a frosty Bud? Cheers!

Patrick O'Sullivan - He has been really good for the last few weeks.  It's really nice to see from him.  He's a guy who I really liked in the first few weeks, then he had his slow decent to my naughty list.  Then he became better. Just like that.  He scored a nice goal today and even tossed out 3 hits. I think Patty O' needs a Mug O' Beer. Cheers!

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - It was the Sharks, what did we expect? The Thorton Line and the Setoguchi Line killed the Oilers. If it wasn't for Gagner, Cogliano and O'Sullivan, the Oilers would have really gotten killed. *sigh* I gues we better get used to it. It's going to be a long last half of the season.

Paq Twinn - Sick and missed the game.
