PRE-GAME RANT

Well after a 3 game streak came crashing down to Earth on Monday night, the Oilers look to start anew tonight in Nashville. It’s the first of back to backs including a short road trip to Columbus to play tomorrow night. Nashville played the BJs last night themselves, so the Oilers will look to jump out early.

Minor shakeup to the lines tonight. Grebeshkov slots into a pairing with Justin Schultz and Potter will sit out. He’ll have company in Acton and Gazdic to make room for Arcobello and Jones.

The Bryz gets his first start as Oiler tonight too. He did see action last game against Chicago after Dubnyk watched 4 pucks bulge the twine behind him. More of a mercy pull as most of the goals were opportunistic by a very talented Blackhawks team. Bryzgalov did well in relief though, so hopefully he’s up to the task of 60 minutes tonight. Also being back to backs you had to figure Bryzgalov would play either tonight or tomorrow.

    Well that was a pretty good game, very similar to the Florida game I thought as far as structure & execution of game plan went. Still a bit of a Chinese fire drill in the 3rd but I guess it’s kind of expected when a team is down by a couple late in the game to push hard. Bryzgalov was awesome, I was most blown away with the nonchalant manner he played in the nets; he looked like he could have been napping while making saves! It was readily appearant the sense of calm he radiated translated to confidence for the rest of the team which allowed everyone to concentrate on their own jobs & get things done.

    Best of all was seeing the team bounce back so well after a trouncing by Chicago, bodes well for the future.

    That’s awesome Bryzy got the shut out. For the first time in a long time, I didn’t bother watching the game. Watched the first period, then played some Call of Duty on XBOX One. I might be addicted…

    Seems I missed a good game, but was scoreboard watching while playing. Nash isn’t much of a test for Bryzy, but I had figured he’d be a whole new level of goaltender between the pipes. I’m interested to see what he can do vs. some real offense though, but a “pro” goaltender has that affect on a team that breeds confidence.. so I hope we start seeing more and more wins now.

    the only downside to bryz is not having had him from the start of the year.

    The Oilers could(would?) be around or even over .500 right now if he’d been playing from day 1

    Yah it would have been nice to have had consistent goaltender.. If Bryz could have brought that on day one
