Just realized its been that long since the Oil lost.
That's a pretty damn good run.
Last night though, they finally really looked like a team that had fought the flu. They looked tired. All the PKS certainly didn't help. After the Staios delay of game that halted that furious onslaught in the second they just never found their legs again.
Good to see that Giguere is no answer in goal for the Ducks.
Good also to see some guys who have been quiet the last two games look like they are on the mend - Smyth and Moreau especially.
And the fourth line has two goals in the last two games.
Have to draw something positive from last night, right?
And I'm starting to get a serious dislike for the Ducks as well. How can that be? Their kids just have those cheese eating grins - Getzlaf and Lupul - and Perry looks like a rat. And Selanne - who I have always liked - I swear if the Oilers had come back last night he would be petitioning the NHL for a best of 9 or best of 11 because the Ducks are the better team, as he says.
A win Saturday would be nice. For my health. For the Oilers' health.
And to shut these guys up.
