PRE-GAME

Alrighty folks. Big break again since our last game on Friday, so I’m excited as hell for this one. Just when we get some momentum going, the league throws us a curveball of some time off. Hopefully this hasn’t cause the Oil to cool off. They won big in Chicago (7-4) after putting together a more honest effort (than previous games) against the Flames in a shootout loss. Let’s hope that they keep things going and take it to the Canucks.

Prediction: 5-1 Oilers (I’m crazy) Continue reading 'GDT: Oilers 3, Canucks 4 – Game 10 – 2010-11-02 @ 7:00 PM – SNET'»

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, the Oilers are now on a big 2 game winning streak, after taking it to Dany Heatley and the San Jose Sharks on Sunday. Those guys are in serious trouble, as they seem to be falling into their annual, end of the year / playoff meltdown already. The Oilers seem to be playing a bit better, in light of having the weight of the world off their shoulders now, and also a bit more improved defensive play, for the most part (despite having a pretty inexperienced crew) – although they definitely need to work on holding a lead, as usual. As far as the Canucks, they seem to be going fairly strong, being 6-2-2 in their last 10.

Vancouver has taken 4 of the 5 games so far this season. I think they’ll likely take this one as well.

Prediction: 5-2 Vancouver

PRE-GAME RANT

I can cut and past the previous GDT nearly word for word, just have to change the loss count… The slide continues with our most recent 6-0 beat down by Colorado, a game where the team showed little to no fight. As many others I’m sure, I didn’t purchase the PPV, so what I was left with were highlights. Not pretty. JDD let in 6, but for the most part they were all very nice goals with some precision passing occurring around our pylons. Quinn and company skated the team into the ground last practice with very little time on ice for the bag of pucks, so hopefully they saved a little bit of energy to take on the Canucks tonight.

For Canuck fans, they are 6-2-2 in their last 10 games, most recently outscoring the Pens in a 6-2 victory. They should be well rested as they haven’t played since the 16th. Defenseman Willie Mitchell will not be dressed for tonight’s game.

My prediction for tonight, a Sedin will be on the score board. I know, I know, it’s pretty bold, but I’m going to stand by it.

Happy shopping insanity day for all you fellow Canadians. Tonight, the Oil take on the Vancouver Canucks. The Oilers had put together a 5-game road stand before the wheels fell off the bus (again) and a 5-game losing streak was built up including 4 straight home losses. The Oilers are deathly cold. The Canucks, on the other hand, have won 5 of their last 7. One thing to note is that the Canucks are 21-16-0… no OT Losses, and are 5 games over 0.500, but are only in 9th. Can we now put to bed this “0.500 hockey” business? 0.500 hockey is now a way of saying your team is bad, but not that bad.

Predictions time. My predictions today are only partly based on the level of suckage the Oilers have been putting on lately. They are also partly based on the Canucks doing well, and seemingly having our number on a lot of occasions (including an ass-kicking back at the end of November).

Brain prediction: 8-3 Vancouver
Heart prediction: 6-4 Vancouver

Prepare for another ugly one.

PRE-GAME RANT

Looks like I’ll be PVR’ing this game and playing it back. Thanks to the shaw guide being all effed up, my recording is a bit weird… recording “Judge Judy” and exending it for an extra 2 hours (cause it’s that good) then recording CSI right after. No, I’m not really recording those shows… that’s my attempt at PVR’ing the hockey game because Shaw (or City TV… whoever is responsible) hasn’t updated the guide to show that hockey game on there.

Anyways, the Oilers have had a 4 day break to think about why we’ve created new forum threads/blog posts/newspaper articles on why they stink so much this year and how to fix them. The last Oiler game was a 7-3 ass kicking by the Vancouver Canucks. As for the Red Wings, they’ve won their last two (against Dallas and in a shootout against St. Louis), but lost the 3 before that (to Calgary, Atlanta and Nashville). So they’re looking human right now too.

Don’t forget, it’s an early one… 5:00 on City TV. Play by play will be provided by Tim Spelliscy. Ok.. not really.
