Vancouver Canucks - 3

Edmonton Oilers - 2



*coming soon*



Andrew Cogliano - He goes for holding at 15:47 of the 3rd period and the Oilers then proceed to get scored on and the game is tied up.  Not a great play by an Oiler young guy. That's usually reserved for the vets on the team. What gives?



Sam Gagner - Gagner was excellent tonight.  He was buzzing and generating good scoring chances.  He had 6 shots and a goal to go with those shots.  He was promoted to the 1st line for this game and really took the opportunity to shine.  He was terrible on faceoffs (22%) and that's about it.  I thought he was good enough for a frosty beer. Cheers!

Ladislav Smid - I liked Smid.  He was in your face and hard to deal with and the Oilers need a pest like him.  He may not have been flashy, but he did his job. He laid out 2 hits and also had a takeaway and a blocked shot.  This was a Budweiser game for Smid. Cheers!

Robert Nilsson - This guy has been freaking amazing since coming back from the concussion. Tonight he blocked 5 shots and was creating lots of chances with his speed and slick moves. He may have been moved down to the 2nd line, but he made that line look good as well.  With 18:00 minutes of great play, he deserves a cold one. Bud Light? Cheers!

Patrick O'Sullivan - He had some glorious chances and played his butt off.  It's been quite refreshing watching play the last few games.  Much like Nilsson, he's been great.  The highlight of his game tonight was his 6 shots.  Now if only he could score. Good game Patty. Have a Kokanee. Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Andrew Cogliano (He plays well with Gagner. Keep him there Quinn.), Marc Pouliot (In his second game played, he gets and assist and played good.), Shawn Horcoff (He had a great game at faceoffs. He was 62% and dominated.), Devan Dubnyk (He played well enough to win.  But the refs had a different plan.), Jason Strudwick (4 blocked shots and looked OK.)



The Terrible Call in OT - I can't believe the way the referee's have been calling games lately.  Grebeshkov was penalized in overtime for a non-call.  It was a dive.  A DIVE!!! Boooooo!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): The Entire Team (A loss is a loss and the ship sinks a little more.)



Smokin' Ray - What a sad way to end a game.  Dubnyk played great, Gagner was flying and Nilsson was still good (go figure).  And... they lose.  Again. *sigh*  Well can it get worse? I guess we will find out.

Paq Twinn - Well that was an awesome game. For the first time in, well I can't remember, the Oilers didn't totally crap the bed. Cogs took a BTP that led to the tying goal and the refs blew the game in OT with a phantom call on Grebs. In the end I believe that we, the fans, got the best of both worlds, one hell of a game and the Oilers lost. Dive for Five baby. Game Grade B-
