None of us are as strong as all of us, chop wood, carry water…
New motivational slogan painted in the Oilers dressing room. I’m guessing the chop wood was from Lowe. He was good at that. And carry water… to distract the Sharks? They love that shit!
Tonight’s XBOX achievement is to score a goal. I don’t care if we lose 7-1, just score a goal. The drought has gone too long in our own barn. It should be the opposite. Not that we’re a dominant road team, but the road losses have been more competitive at least. Sharks did play last night while the Oilers rested, but there is no advantage in that with the contrasting seasons of both teams. It’s not going to be an easy night and if the Sharks smell blood, there’s going to be a frenzy.
Some line shuffling for tonight. The holy trinity is back together and Arcobello is trading places with Klefbom. I imagine it’s a tough pill to swallow for Acrobello considering he’s been one of the few bright spots thus far. Could just be a victim of the numbers though and needing another D man on the roster. This gets Gazdic back in tonight to lay some licks and try to slow down a Shark or two. With the current talent producing so well for San Jose, taking the body frequently will be the best way to keep them off their game.
In OKC land, Bryzgalov is getting the start tonight, so it will be interesting to hear how that goes. We need some kind of glimmer of hope here. The season is ¼ in and for all intents we’re already out of the playoffs… Sounds like Justin Schultz has had a minor setback in his recovery as well.
