Up one after one. Good to see. All the pressure on the Ducks for G2. The Oil can really put themselves in a good position with a win on Sunday. The Ducks will be desperate.
A different game of course with the Ducks. A strange one. Not a lot of flow at times, it seemed. Oilers looked tired.
Peca continues to get better. He has really become what they expected him to be. Solid, if not spectacular effort from most of the forwards. Christ, someone has to sit Torres down though. Running around without a clue. I'd rather have Hemsky out there then him. Put Rem on the wing. At least he'll get the puck out. Ah, forget that.
Spacek and Staios had a terrific game, I thought. Especially a nice job on the last PK.
And Roloson was Roloson.
When will Tarnstrom be back? I asked Stan for peace and quiet when MAB and Greene are out there. Instead I get fear and riot.
Still, one up. The Ducks looked rested, not rusty. Its a nice win - lets get another on Sunday, shall we?
As a quick postscript I just saw Carlyle's post game presser. What a breath of fresh air that was after listening to Ron Wilson for two weeks. No whining. No ego. Just a nice smart assessment of what happened and what his team has to do to get better.
