THE MEAT AND POTATOES

The Good:

- Devan Dubnyk was back between the pipes and he played pretty good. He wasn't knock em' dead, but he played pretty solid. I was glad to see him back. It's too bad the team in front of his sucks.

- The Nilsson/Potulny/O'Sullivan line was the best Oiler line. While Nilsson really didn't so much, the other two were great. They created the Oilers first goal and kept the pressure on the Blues all game.

- I like Dean Arsene, but he really needs to learn to fight.

- Anytime one of the guys drops the gloves I give him props. Pouliot is one of those guys tonight. He laid some good punches to Colaiacovo's helmet. I'm willing to bet his hand hurts after that.

- Gilbert and Whitney both played over 25 minutes again this game. They are leading the Oilers down the stretch in ice time.

- Andrew Cogliano had 4 hits. Too bad he wasn't a big guy to make those hits hurt.

- Potulny and Brule were the best on the Oilers squad for faceoffs with 65% and 67% respectively. Potulny also blocked 5 shots.

- Jason Strudwick played his game with 3 hits and 4 blocked shots.

- O'Sullivan had a team high, 6 shots on net.  He also had 4 missed shots. That's ten in total. Wow!

The Not So Good:

- What's to complain about? 30th place is almost a lock. Now if only the gods don't screw the team with the 2nd overall pick.

The Side Dish:

- The Springfield Falcons lost in a ass kicking to the River Rats 5-1. Jordan Eberle had one assist in the loss. Read the recap here.

- The Stockton Thunder on the other hand had a barn burner of a game. They won a thrilling 6-5 game. The recap is here.
