B&J #111 / Battle of Alberta / Oilers vs Flames (1/30/10)



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? O'Sullivan draws back in and Comrie sits out with Stortini. Other than that, the lines stay the same. Dubnyk will start in goal and will try to get his first win.

- On this wonderful Hockey Day In Canada, we get to watch a Battle of the Losers. Both teams are on losing streaks (Oilers 12 and Flames 9) and one team will end it after this game is over. Spoiler alert: It wasn't the Oilers. They were killed.

- This is the first time in The Edmonton Oilers history that they have lost all the regular season games to the Flames. They have never been swept before and this is a shitty record to break. This is another low point for this storied franchise and it may just get worse yet. This season may go down as the worst season ever for the Edmonton Oilers. How sad is that?

- Why wouldn't they have the Oilers play in a set of Vintage Oilers white/orange & blue uniforms to play against Calgary and their Vintage uniforms? It would have looked good. I miss the 80's...

GAME VIDEO REPLAY



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

BAD TIMING PENALTY

None - I know... surprise! And yes, Moreau played. *shrugs shoulders*

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

BEERS

None - The score was 6-1. No Beers For You!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Sam Gagner (He scored the Oilers only goal and continues his point streak. He even busted out a spin-o-rama tonight. He's was trying out there. He took a both teams high, 6 shots. It was reported that he even stopped in front of the Flames bench and challenged them. That's BALLS!), Dustin Penner (He wasn't great by no means. He was average at best. But he was the only guy with an even on +/-.), Ryan Potulny (He once again played hard. He's earning his spot. With 4 shots and 2 blocked shots, he's at least trying to win.), Lubomir Visnovsky (A game where he wasn't credited with a giveaway. He played pretty decent and finished -1. He had 2 takeaways and 2 blocked shots.), Andrew Cogliano (He played OK. He had a smokin' good chance in the 3rd where he burned everyone but Kipper snagged it with the glove.)

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

JEERS

Denis Grebeshkov - His brutal giveaways continued tonight. He was horrible to watch and he struggled all night. Brian McGrattan even burned him on a play. Embarrassing. To those people that would rather trade Gilbert over Grebeshkov, please reconsider. Gilbert is never this bad. Time to let this guy go. Booooo!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Sheldon Souray (Took the 5 on 3 penalty and that was the PP goal more or less sealed the deal on this game. As a highlight, he did however fight Iginla in a spirited fight. It was well overdue and I wondered if Iginla would ever man up and fight Souray. ***Souray fractured his hand on Iggy's face in that fight. It was confirmed by Pat Quinn after the game was over.***), Devan Dubnyk (He was hung out to dry a lot tonight. Some goals he had no chance and others he could/should have saved those. I like Dubey, but tonight, he wasn't very good.), Moreau/Horcoff/Pisani (This line sucked. They didn't seen to be effective at all. All three were bad.)

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

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - What a good day, yet such a shitty ending to it. It was Hockey Day In Canada and I spent it with my family. We watched hockey, played mini sticks and watched some more hockey. The Oilers losing all the regular season games to the Flames is the first time in Oilers history that that has happened. That's a sad record to give up.  Reading the comments on Twitter, it's clear the fans care a lot less about this team now. And how can anyone blame them. It's really hard to watch this. Do I pay for the PPV next game? I know it's not worth it but I don't miss games. Sometimes this team pisses me off. And this is one of those times.

Paq Twinn - fLames won SIX to ONE. Season Series- fLames SIX, Oilers ZERO. Nuff said. Game Grade: F
