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

BAD TIMING PENALTY

Theo Peckham - Right after the Habs score their 3rd goal to make it 3-2, Peckham takes a very silly holding penalty and gave the Habs even more momentum than they already had from the go ahead goal. And besides that, he was just in the box a few minutes before that which caused the Habs momentum swing in the first place. Bad game for Peckham.
------------------

BEERS

Penner/Cogliano/Brule - Cogliano gets the fortune of acquiring a dynamic duo in Penner and Brule to play on his wings for this game. Penner and Brule have an uncanny chemistry and adding Cogliano's speed and aggressive puck play just made that line fantastic. Split a mini keg boys. Cheers!

Tom Gilbert - He finished the game a +1 and he had two assists and he blocked 4 shots. Not bad for a 5-4 hockey game.  He's done nothing but impress me since his new top pairing role has started. I can see why he wears the "A" once in a while now. He's one of the leaders for this Oilers team now and down the road. He played 27:49 and was good right down to the wire. One frosty cold one, coming up. Cheers!

Chris Minard - The $275,000 AHL hotshot finally makes his Oilers debut. At the start of the game, I had doubts. But within the first three minutes of the game he has a nice give and go with Gagner and he picks up an assist on the goal. He seemed to play well with Gagner and Pouliot. He sure didn't look out of place. He played 10:54. Have a cold frosty mug of Oilers Jambalaya Budweiser. Cheers!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Aaron Johnson (He played 26:31. Holy crap. He must be dead after a game like that. And he played really good. He ended the night +1.), Shawn Horcoff (He played well with Comrie. Horcoff even scored tonight. Really, he did.), Robert Nilsson (3 shots and a goal for Bobby. I know, it's strange. He was good.), Devan Dubnyk (He played OK. He let in some weak goals and he wasn't spectacular. But that's OK, he made it to the shootout and even did pretty good in that. He still hasn't won his first NHL game yet.)

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

JEERS

Taylor Chorney - I didn't like his game tonight and ending up -3 sucks. Sloppy plays and bad passes makes me want to boo him. So I'm going to. BOOOOOOO!

HONORABLE MENTION(S): Jason Strudwick (He was looking like he was drowning out there. I'd say I hope he gets better, but who am I kidding.)

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

OUR GAME SUMMARIES

Smokin' Ray - The first period was very exciting. Very. Four goals in the first ten minutes was an intense way to start a game. The whole game was good, but that start was great. I knew it was a good game when my pregnant and due wife was even enjoying the game. Not much impresses her lately. lol. So if you missed the game, oh well, you missed the game. That's why we have a recap. ; )

Oh yeah... Ryan Whitney suffered and injury and did not play in the 3rd. The injury bug strikes again.

Paq Twinn - He's M.I.A.
