PRE-GAME

These games are the moments we Oilers fans live for. The Battle of Alberta, part 2 (at least the regular season version), plays out tonight in Calgary. Word is, Renney is going to ice a tough as nails line up (meaning both MacIntyre and Strudwick are in, word has it, although Stortini or Jones may be out) in case the Flames are looking for some revenge for the beating they took. We won the war and the battle, although I’d say they got the best of us in a couple of the smaller fights. Look for a spirited battle tonight, unless the Flames roll over early and give up the fight before it starts. But I don’t see that happening at all. I think Ivanans is just recovering still from being KO’d by MacIntyre, but I could even see him looking for another round… I almost feel sorry for the guy and as crazy as it sounds, I hope I don’t see him fight tonight.

Anyways, I predict a closer game this time… 3-2 Oilers.

Home opener. Battle of Alberta. Going to the game, sitting in row 1 again. What more needs to be said? Can’t… fucking… wait. Hopefully we are on the winning side of this one, this time. Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers vs. Flames – Game 1 – SEASON OPENER! – 2010-10-07 @ 8:00 PM – CBC'»

PRE-GAME RANT

So, unfortunately the Flames continued their dominance over the Oilers, with the last game being a 5-1 loss. That puts our last win over Calgary at September 15, 2009 (in pre-season) in a 4-1 win. But the stage was set for a great end to the pre-season with some good action in the Battle of Alberta. The game was good for 40 minutes or so, but the Oilers just couldn’t stay out of the box, and that eventually cost them, despite some really good PKs. Khabibulin might have been hammered on Friday too, as at one point during a commercial break, he ran over one of the ice crew girls, drawing a comment from my girlfriend’s dad of “he skates like he drives”.

I’m hoping that the final pre-season game will be an ugly one, but not on the scoresheet. The first game had some good rough stuff, with a fantastic scrap between Ivanans and MacIntyre, a decent fight between Vandermeer and Jackman, and a tussle between Gingerballs and Whothefuckcares.

Lineups will be added when they are made available, but Millhouse already mentioned that the following players will be in the lineup, in a last ditch effort to evaluate talent: Peckham, Petiot and Belle on defense, Omark, Giroux, O’Marra, Ondrus and Jones at forward. The next round of cuts will be made on Monday.

And on an unrelated note, for you folks in the pool, don’t forget the pool drafts are tonight. For those of you in the first pool (“Foiled Again”) the draft starts at 8:00PM MDT. For those of you in the second pool (“Foiled Again Too”), the draft starts at 9:15PM MDT. You should show up a bit early, and you might want to rank your players before then, in case something happens where you can’t make the draft on time or at all.

PRE-GAME RANT

Oh it’s on, folks. Hockey Day In Canada… the Battle of Alberta. What more could you ask for? Well, a win tonight sure as hell would be nice. Forget about the Dive for Five, Tank for Taylor/Tyler, Saggin’ for Seguin, Foul-up for Fowler or whatever you want to call it. This is the battle for ultimate hockey supremacy. OK, maybe not quite that big, but it sure would feel good to see a win tonight, no?

As we all know, the Oilers are sitting at 12 straight losses (including OT/Shootout losses), and have 1 one win in their last 20. The Flames are winless in 9 games. This is the battle for a bloody win. And let’s hope it’s a bloody, spirited game. If these teams come out flat, I’ll be surprised. This is the type of game that SHOULD bring out the fight in both teams. And with it being in Calgary’s barn, I’d love to see an Edmonton win tonight. Calgary is also on the verge of sweeping the season series, and the Oilers can not let that happen!

No heart/brain prediction tonight.. just one prediction: 5-2 Oilers.

Lets keep it going boys!!

PRE-GAME RANT

Hey, doesn’t victory feel awesome.  Sure it was against the laffs, but it was a beautiful thing seeing the boys shut up all those misguided fans.

And isn’t it nice to see the team play with a little confidence (I’m talking from the point of the second goal until about 5 min left in the game).  Looked good out there.

And have a happy and safe new year’s eve everyone.

Now some Racki-stats:
