The Good:

- Dustin Penner took this team and ran with it. He was awesome! He had a goal and two assists in the 16:44 of ice time. I really hope we get the same guy next season. With a healthy team, adding a great player like Penner to it, it could only be great. Right? Right?!?

- Ryan Whitney scores the overtime winning goal all while not so silently leading the defensive corps. This guy has been a great pickup for the Oilers and some people are starting to think he's captain material. He had 5 shots to go with that goal but his best stat is his 27:25 of ice time. Maybe he should be the captain? He says and does all the right things. Hmmmm....

- Tom Gilbert once again played pretty good as he had two assists. I am starting to wonder if it's just Gilbert being good and figuring out the game, or is it just Whitney helping him look good.

- Andrew Cogliano was once again solid. He scored a goal and had an assist for a two point night.

- Mike Comrie had a chance at the end of the game to put it away. He didn't and it went to overtime. But he did score a goal earlier in the game and played OK. I like Mike. I've just always wondered why he's been the low minutes guy and not top six.

- Well, that sure was a great way to end the season at home. I'm sure the fans in attendence appreaciated it. GOILERS!!!

The Not So Good:

- Jeff Deslauriers was not very good tonight. He was flip flopping all over the place and never really looked comfortable in net. He's lucky the team won this game.

- Jason Strudwick is a really funny guy and he is a good teammate. He's just not very good at hockey. He made his usual three or four errors and overall, he didn't look very able out there. Amazingly enough, Quinn still had him out there late in the 3rd during a tie game. That Pat Quinn has a big set of nards.

- The Oilers lost 53% of the faceoffs tonight. I sure hope Tamby does something in that category. It's quite clear we can't go within the organisation for help.

- Dean Arsene was the only Oiler to take a penalty tonight. Mind you, he did it twice.

The Side Dish:

- No side dish tonight
