PRE-GAME

So last night’s game was a loss, but I think there were a lot of positives in it, one of them being that the Oilers still got a point out of it. The other was that Dubnyk played a very rock solid game. The Oilers special teams were also better than that of Columbus, scoring 1 PP goal and not allowing any against. Dubnyk was peppered with shots though, and that is a concern, but if the Oilers can keep the shots to the outside, it’s fine to allow some extra shots… but Dubnyk was BUSY last night.

I’m not sure yet who the Oilers are going to go with tonight, but you can predict that they will also be very busy against a Hawks team that has been known to dominate us at our own game. They’ve got guys that can get in behind our defense and exploit holes all night, so I predict a fair number of 2-on-1 situations, and partial breaks. The Oilers are going to have to play a very tight defense. Aside from Whitney’s inability to pass the puck properly yesterday, I didn’t see too many big problems on defense last night, and the team looked better without Foster. Sorry to pick on a player, but they looked better having an 2/3s of the blue focused on defense. They’re going to need a very heavily defensive mindset tonight against the Hawks.

I’m hoping we see another good game. My heart says this will be a win for Edmonton, but the brain says 5-2 Chicago.

PRE-GAME RANT


Sorry folks for the late GDT and the crummy pic. :lol: For some reason I originally thought it was a 6:00 start… my bad. Anyways, the trade deadline came and went with a little less activity on the Oiler front than I’d like. Today the Oilers dumped Staios and moved Visser for a younger O-minded d-man. That one will remain to be seen as to how smart a deal it was. Tonight should be an ugly one, however, because the new guys aren’t in the lineup, and we’re already down a Visnovsky, Staios and Grebeshkov. So Mean, Dean Arsene and Johan Motin have been called up.

I predict a 9-1 win for the Hawks tonight. Sorry all the other fluff is out for tonight as I’m a bit behind… plus I have no idea what the lines will look like, at least from the blue line.

One fell swoop.

PRE-GAME RANT

Well the boys played hard against Dallas last game, but the end result was another deflating defeat after a late game winner by Neal.  They’ve had a few days off since then and the skills competition over the weekend, so hopefully they are in good spirits and come out with energy.  The Hawks are a team you don’t want to come out flat against.

The Hawks are 6-3-1 in their last 10 and most recently lost to the Canucks on Saturday 5-1.  They’ve had a few days rest and time to think about the loss, so expect them to come out firing and try to break the Oilers spirit early on.

Stats:

Well, nothing like facing a team right after they’ve handed another team their asses. The Blackhawks are coming off a 7-1 punishment of the Flames and are currently on a 5 game winning streak. The Oilers consistency this year has been non-existent, but they’ve won some games that most wouldn’t have expected (ex. vs. the Avalanche twice and vs. the Predators on the road). They currently are on a lengthy one-game winning streak, with an ugly, but exciting, win over the Avalanche on Wednesday.

In recent news, the Quinn/Renney doghouse has been getting a few visitors. In the last game, Gilbert was benched for most of the 2nd period for his defensive issues. Quinn was quoted recently in regards to the teams defensemen “I don’t care that they’re offensive. I want them to defend, first.” Continue reading 'GDT – Oilers vs. Blackhawks – Nov 21, 2009 @ 8:00PM – CBC – Game 23'»
