THE MEAT AND POTATOES

Game Notes:

- The Oilers were killed right from the get go. It was so sad to see this in the last game of the year. In fact, it didn't get any better. The slaughter continued for a full 60 minutes. The final shot count was 45-31 in favor of the Ducks.

The Good:

- There wasn't much good tonight. Mike Comrie scored his 4th goal in 3 games. That was great to see. I started the question, "Should the Oilers resign Mike Comrie next season?". The response surprised me. We all know why we hated the guy previously, but most people that replied were in favor of bringing Mike back. Not for a lot of money though. He'd need to sign cheap.

- Ryan Whitney played pretty good. He had a goal and an assist and played hard against his old team. I was surprised to hear the Ducks fans boo Whitney. I know I won't boo him. I quite like him.

- For the first time this year, Patrick O'Sullivan was the best on the team in +/- with a +2 rating. What's up with that?

- I also thought that Tom Gilbert again played good.

- Zack Stortini was a dominant with 8 wins 4 losses for 67% on faceoffs. Wow! Kind of a shocking stat.

The Not So Good:

- Jeff Deslauriers ended our who's better conversation from yesterday tonight. Deslauriers is not the guy we choose. WE WANT DUBNYK!

- I'm glad that I don't have to watch the Chorney(-3)/Strudwick(-2) train wreck anymore this year. They were brutal again tonight.

- The Linglet/Pouliot/Jones line was brutal tonight. They were not only on for three goals against, they were part of the problem.

- I can't (well, I can) believe that the Oilers crap in the bed in the last game of the year. Was this a telling tale for the fate of the two goalies? Was this a last glimpse of Moreau, Pisani and Souray (I know he wasn't playing)?

The Side Dish:

- The Falcons played tonight and were the opposite of the Oilers. Yes, they won their game. Here is the recap.
