PRE-GAME RANT

Call this the reverse-Corsi battle. The Oilers are doing quite well in “Corsi” (Google that if you don’t know what it is.. but basically the way “stats guys” prefer to measure how well a game is going for a team), the Maple Leafs are not. The Maple Leafs are winning… the Oilers are not. So the “stats guys” predict a rise for the Oilers, and a drop off for the Maple Leafs eminent. It’s rare to see the “stats guys” talk in a positive light about the Oilers, so it will be interesting to see how this pans out after 82 games. The Oilers are also doing very well in one regular stat.. face off percentage. The Oilers are 3rd in the league with a team 56.8%. I believe this is due to a better “team” focus on faceoffs. The wingers are just as important to winning a draw. I also believe that Gordon is phenomenal at this skill, and his knowledge is likely Continue reading 'OTL – Oilers 5, Maple Leafs 6 – Game 5 – 2013-10-10 @ 5:00 PM MST – CBC'»

PRE-GAME RANT

So tonight the Oilers face the Maple Leafs. The Oilers are pretty hot as of late, having earned 9 out of a possible 10 points in their last 5 games. The same can be said of the Leafs, themselves, who are on a streak of their own as they try to make the playoffs for the first time under the new CBA. Currently they sit in 8th, but are barely clinging on for dear life. If all is right in the world, the Leafs will miss the playoffs again. But I almost pity the team.

Good news on the Oilers front.. Tom Gilbert returns! And yet again, thanks to the win and your in policy, Devan Dubnyk gets the nod in net. Good for him! The Oilers will also continue to play Gagner with Hall and Eberle, so fantastic news for any of you folks (myself included) lucky enough to have him in a hockey pool.

PRE-GAME RANT

Looks like the Oilers are dressing the thug line up again tonight. Expect both MacIntyre and Stortini to be in. Also, I’d expect Strudwick in for Vandermeer, although I’m not entirely certain he’ll replace his minutes (Vandy has been fantastic lately, playing with Whitney).

The two teams are fairly equal, as far as records are concerned. The Oilers have been the hotter team as of late though, although their last two games they got lucky with the final score being what it was.

Last time the two teams faced was in November, and the Oilers came out on top with a 5-0 win. And while in the photo above, Orr is seen hitting MacIntyre in the face, this was just the starting point which set Big Mac off into destructo-mode, as the Oil won that fight too.

Prediction: 6-1 Oilers (please be true, as Trogdor and I will be at the game tonight)

PRE-GAME RANT

Tonight the Oilers face off against a fairly equal team, as far as standings are concerned (the Leafs have one less game played – one less loss). The Oilers head into the center of the hockey universe to battle against the Toronto Maple Leafs. I’m surprised this one isn’t on TSN again, but I’m happy to hear the voices of Debrusk and Quinn again.

I’m thinking another win for the Oilers who have looked a fair bit better as of recently. I’m thinking this will be a big one.

Prediction: 6-1 Oilers. That’s right. I’m not planning the cup route or anything, I just think the Oilers will continue riding the high tonight and beat up on an equally poor team.

PRE-GAME RANT

The battle of the basement takes place tonight. Who will you cheer for? It will feel dirty cheering for Toronto for a lot of people, so I think most will cheer Edmonotn on. But at the same time, having some extra separation would be nice. The Oilers are coming off of a wild one versus the Habs on Thursday. It ended up being settled in the shootout (5-4 final). The Leafs have won a couple in a row, which has given them a 7 point lead on Edmonton with 15 games remaining for both teams. A regulation loss tonight could all but seal the deal on 30th overall place for the Oilers.

Prediction 3-2 OT win for Edmonton.
