PRE-GAME RANT

Step 1. Take a blank piece of paper and cover the right side of the image.
Step 2. With the distraction removed look closely and you will see 2 very storied franchises with their names all over the cup. Both have been a long time removed from the glory days, but who says we can’t reminisce over a pint?

Tonight will be the first of two meetings this season against that other team from New York.  The Islanders are off to a similarly rocky start with 2 wins so far on the season.  This is game 4 of the Oilers’ Eastern road trip and so far they have accrued just one point in an OT loss to the Maple Leafs.   A game they let slip away in the final minutes.

Current hot button topic is goaltending in Edmonton.  Dubnyk gets the start tonight, so hopefully we see a solid effort in an attempt to reassert his starter status.  The defence will have to be better and the team on a whole needs to start playing a more complete game.

The team is still doing well sitting 5th in the league for goals for, the issue is we’re 30th for goals against…  Arcobello has been making good use of his time up sharing the team lead in points with 6 assists and a team leading +5.  The Nuge is at an ugly looking -9 while Hall and Hemsky are an equally abysmal -7.  Simple math is we need more goals than our opponents. So, we have a plan. Now execute it!

Lines look to be unchanged for tonight.

Got to make this a quick one again, as I’m swamped at work. I’ll be heading to Rexall to see this one tonight too. I am hoping for a good one. This is the battle of two horrible teams though.

Hmm… 5-2 Oilers

Well, they don’t ask how many, they ask how, right Rob?

Here’s Rob Schremp with a great, highlight goal. This is only goal 3 of the season though. So as long as he keeps making them look pretty, then uhm… well, shit, I don’t know. Just watch the damn video.

Btw, the ref is seen in the background waving it off, however the goal actually counted.

GDT - Edmonton Oilers at New York Islanders

GDT - Edmonton Oilers at New York Islanders

PRE-GAME RANT

The Edmonton Oilers head into Long Island an ugly mess, having been shut out 3 of the last 4 games (we’re all getting tired of hearing that) and allowing Detroit to walk away with 1 point in a game where the Oilers had a 5-1 lead. The Islanders, meanwhile, have been a hot team as of late, winning their last 3 games over a span of 4 days against their conferences top teams (Capitals (2), Sabres (3), Rangers (4)).

The Oilers struggles as of late, have been to find goal scoring, but I believe a lot of that has to do with inability to protect their own zone. You can’t score goals when you spend the majority of the game watching the opponent handle the puck in your zone. “We have to start thinking about the defensive side again and making sure we don’t give up much,” said Quinn.
