Re: [Hockey] Official~ NHL thread...........scores and highlites

said by ZZZZZZZ:

Yup good game........quite the comeback.

The problem is getting down like that in a lot of games.........they need better goaltending with that offense.

Dubnyk isn't the issue, it's the defence. He might not be the best of goalies in the league but this year he's proving himself and if he keeps it up will have The Boulin Wall's job. Recently the offence has been super stung too.

We all know the Oilers are a young team, the youngest IIRC. It's the little rookie mistakes that kill us. The last few games the Oil have had numerous chances to score, ugly goal or not, but the puck just never happened to find the back of the net, at least until late in the first of the Saturday's game and then things changed. A string of bad luck that just had to turn anytime, and it did.

Unlike most years as a fan of the Oil, I have faith in these kids. Even when they're down. The killer hands of Eberle, the sniper like "holy fucking shit" shot of Yakupov, the speed and play making abilities of Taylor Hall, the smart defense of the extra young Justin Shultz... some great exciting hockey for sure. Hopefully the boys can keep performing in regulation time and last night's performance broke a club record with 56 shots... which is rather hard for me to fathom considering the 1980's era and all that. So surely that must mean these kids can do it and at least reach the playoffs? We can only hope.

The Stars and the Blues look very similar. Both talented teams.
The Blues are one of the USA based teams I would actually cheer for.

I've seen quite a bit on Twitter that the St Louis Blues charter aircraft was stuck on the tarmac in Vancouver for hours yesterday / this morning due to a mechanical breakdown that couldn't be fixed quickly and a substitute aircraft wasn't available. They landed in St Louis at around 0830h EDT this morning, play at home to SJS tonight, and are in Colorado tomorrow. Good luck with all that!

I heard that this morning on the local radio sports. I wonder if they
are one of the USA based teams using the Air Canada charter aircraft?

There was one brief image on something I saw / read and it was a US Airways aircraft. I would think if it was an AC bird they'd be able to get parts for it a bit quicker at a major airport like Vancouver.

I guess the Sabres fans that were chanting for him to be fired got their wish. I wonder who they are going to replace him with? He's been the coach there for 16 years.

Flyers sure have the Pen's number when they play street hockey........you'd think they'd learned something after last year's shootout.

How he lasted that long there is unbelievable... Coaches/GM's just don't last long these days...

He didn't have any fantastic success either... Made playoffs some years, didnt others...
