VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

THE MEAT AND POTATOES

The Good:

- Sam Gagner earned some real nice assists and played 18:28. He played a pretty good game all around, but his faceoffs really need work. He hit the boards a little strange halfway through the first period and I was hoping he wasn't going to be hurt. Two assists later, he's fine.

The Not So Good:

- Pat Quinn is making it clear he hated his defence corps. Johnson, Gilbert and Whitney all played over 21:00 minutes each. Peckham played 18:09, Chorney had 16:08 and Strudwick played 16:29. I'm sure their minutes would have been reduced even more if he could have.

- This was one boring game. Usually they suck anyways because it's against the Wild, it seemed to suck even more tonight. *yawn*

- The Oilers coverage in their own zone was one of the main reasons they lost. The Wild were free to roam. And roam they did.

- Why didn't the linesmen let Stortini and Scott fight? Mind you, if the passion for the fight was actually there, they would have fought at some point. They didn't.

- Taylor Chorney sucks!
