Beers & Jeers #112 - Edmonton Oilers Full Game Recap vs Carolina Hurricanes (2/1/10)



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? From what I understand, Potulny was sick today and he did not play. Pisani also sat out and we don't know why. Stortini and Comrie draw back in. Alex Plante has also been called up and he will play in his 1st ever NHL game. He will play with Strudwick.

- Since it's a PPV, not many people are paying to watch this game. I'm a hardcore and since I needed to watch it in order to do the Beers & Jeers, I paid for it.

BEERS

Marc Pouliot - Wow! Talk about a breakout game. He scored the Oilers 3rd goal (game winner) and assisted on the Jacques (1st goal of game) goal and finished a +2. Not too bad. He also had 3 shots. Pouliot even found some time on the PK and the PP which means Quinn was liking him tonight. He needs to improve his faceoffs but played a good game. Feel like a cold one? Cheers!

Sam Gagner - Gagner had himself a good game. He was contributing nice plays and even squeaked a goal by Cam Ward. Gagner has been on a points rampage and thanks to that goal, it continues. He had 2 shots and a takeaway. Good stuff? Not really. But good enough for a Budweiser? Cheers!

Mike Comrie -  The boy in the bubble was might fine tonight. He made some real nice plays and really led his line tonight. He was the one "making" things happen. He had 6 shots and picks up an assist on the Gagner goal. Solid night out for Mono Mike. How about a can of Pilsner? That should cure what you have? Cheers!

Alex Plante - His first ever NHL game and he's thrown to the lions. OK. At this point in the season, every team is a lion. But Plante did pretty good. He didn't see any PP or PK time but did manage to play 12:00 minutes. Not only did he look OK out there, he picks up his first ever NHL point with an assist on the Jacques goal. Good for him. If that doesn't boost the confidence then nothing will. Frosty cold one rookie? Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Gilbert Brule (I liked Brule. He played pretty good. He scored a goal and served up 3 hits.), Andrew Cogliano (I also liked him. he tried hard and was rewarded with an assist on the Brule goal.), Lubomir Visnovsky (He is now the Oilers best defenseman. He lived up to it. He played over 21:00 minutes and was a +1.), Zack Stortini (Storts drew back in after sitting for 2 games and made the best of it. He was banging and crashing for 4 hits and he added an assist.), JF Jacques (He scored and had an assist. What the hell huh? All this and he only played 10:00 minutes.), Ethan Moreau (He had a good game. It was a trange sight for sure. Adding Comrie ure helped that line.), Shawn Horcoff (He also had a good game with Comrie. Watch for Quinn to stick with this line.)

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

JEERS

Jeff Deslauriers - Maybe I am being a little harsh, but his 2 goals that went by him were weak. Those were shots you should have saved. For that reason alone, Booooooo!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Taylor Chorney (Now it's totally not his fault, but he was burned at least 3 times tonight.  However, he did have a team high 5 blocked shots and played OK. He just needs more experience.), Denis Grebeshkov (He had 3 giveaways and I don't expect anything less from him. Sure he played pretty good, but he needs to stop doing that.), Dustin Penner (His penalty was lazy and pissed Quinn off. He at times had that fire to compete, other times it was gone. At one point Quinn had him benched.), Robert Nilsson (He wasn't great tonight at all. I've seen him better.)

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

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - Finally a win for the Edmonton Oilers. Do you know how hard it is to write about a stinky team? You can only say so much before you start repeating yourself.  The refs only blew one call and that was the Comrie call. He didn't even see the Canes player coming. Pure accident. Oh well. The Oilers gained a lead and held on to it for a full 60 minutes. That might have been the best full game they have played in months.  All I can say is that it was worth the PPV money. Finally.

Paq Twinn - He missed the game because he is boycotting the Oilers PPV's for the rest of the season. Can you blame him?
