Edmonton Oilers at San Jose Sharks (08/01/2019)


* farts loud * Final result: 7-2 Sharks

Do you remember when the last two teams met about a week ago? Have you spent the time since you did everything you need to suppress memory? I understand. Sharks are completely innocent Oilers, and outside of a nice hit achieved by Draisaitl and McDavid in the garbage bins, the only positive one that was taken in the evening was when the last acoustic signal sounded. Frankly, I would be a liar and a liar if I pretend that I'm not completely nervous about the way the trilogy will be played this season. Depending on how bad their last meeting was, I was not sure if I could sit through another stinker, but after I was exposed before us, I was watching a wreck with my mouth and a breath in my eye. I honestly feel that someone stole something from me, even if there were hours of my time. I know that the goal of "keeping a respectable" is a rather low column, which should be placed on the NHL level, but I could not help it, but it seemed to me to be a fair criterion at this point and one that is clearly difficult to overcome.

If the Oilers actually won in this matter, we should find a way to get a good start and maintain this momentum. They had to start a game of energy, tear down a few options, and if they were lucky, their hard work could have been enough for an early advantage. This should be a plan. So I actually disappointed the laughter when sharks opened scoring on their first shot of the game by ridiculously redirecting the attempt at the passage, which knocked out the pair of Oilers before it entered the net. It was absurd. By the time the sharks added two more goals before the end of the first period, things were not so funny. Even when Oilers managed to bring the game closer together with cash in pairs, it was never enough to turn the tide. Once again, Sharks showed us what the team's experience for the playoffs is and how far the Oilers are far from actually being able to fight for a division. San Jose had too much depth and too many guys who could win, but Oilers could not get the saved results or the goals that were needed to continue.

Unfortunately, when the team is currently being built, the Oilers do not have enough depth to be able to follow the best teams in the division or conference, and this is a sad state in the fourth year of Connor McDavid's career.


  • Alex Chiasson got his first goal after returning from injury when he parked in front of the net and was ready to see when Connor brought him a puck. As expected, the captain shook Chiasson with a complete passage into the slot, and the answer was fully placed in the lower corner.
  • MILAN LUCIC! FINALLY! A great man with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins broke into the gap at the 2-on-1 break and completely changed him. He set Lucić to tee, and the big man buried him for his second goal of the season and for the first time since the start of the season. He's come a long time, big man. We hope that the branches will open.
  • Personally, I think that Nuge should be given recognition for two help in eliminating the target drought of Milan Lučić by putting him on a t-shirt that was nearby, but I did not find any forms to fill in to register in the NHL. Nevertheless, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who played in his 500th game with Oilers tonight, joins a big voice, and this is a wild number that can be seen on the first-ever NBA draft. For a man who is only 25 years old, Nuge has seen more shit than most people in her young career. He was through trainers, co-workers and rebuilding, new reasons for hope, and we never heard him complaining about it.
  • Mikko Koskinen had to enter the game with the relief of Cam Talbot, and he did everything in his power to calm the water, but there was not much to do – the train had already left the station. In a difficult situation to enter and end the night with 16 saves and .842 save%.
  • Oilers finished at 1/3 on power play and the goal they made the result was a very nice display of the movement of the puck, which led to Chiasson finish the game.
  • At least Oilers led in the hits?! Wait, that means you did not have a lot of package? Shit.

  • Dummied on the clock 36-22. Great. Really good.
  • How do you have three goals against a single departure of your players? How? Sweet grace.
  • Evander Kane got sharks on board at the first "snapshot" of the night, after Kane's attempt to divert a pair of Oilers before Cam Talbot before jumping through his legs. Kane was not there, although he got another goal in the second period, when another sledge returned to the skate. Two goals without one shot. Pinball Wizard.
  • Marcus Sorensen gave a shark a lead with two hits in a goal with a penalty shot that beat Cam Talbota low to the side of the blocker. For me, this was a rather weak call to Petrović, who gave Sorensen the PS according to the shit that Connor McDavid plays every night, but this is happening throughout the year. Meh.
  • Less than a minute after Chiasson returned the Oilers back into the goal, Joonas Donskoi renewed the Sharks leadership with two hits when he walked Caleb Jones and reminded us that he was just a novice. A free lesson about this for a young defender and a honorable mention to Russell for the late star of the game. Donskoi reached another goal in the third quarter when he found a loose puck on the side of the net and put him in an open net.
  • What can you say about Brent Burns' goal, which was not an absolute shield? Burns threw this thing into the net so fast that it was actually checked just to make sure it went in. Sometimes it's all you can do to slap your hat to the guy for a big blow.
  • Alex Petrovich left the game in the second period after hitting the numbers in the corner. When Sportsnet showed a repetition, you could find that Petrovic did not work well, as he slowly returned to the bench. Unfortunately, this looks like a concussion and we will have to wait and see for how long it will disappear.
  • It was not surprising that Cam Talbot got a start tonight after he kicked out Ducks on Sunday night less than 24 hours after he entered the game with the relief of Mikko Koskinen. Dadbot earned this game and I was curious to see how he would face the challenge. Sharks illuminated him for seven goals the last time these teams met, and I hoped it would be a shit that would inspire some revenge. Unfortunately, it was not meant that Cam Talbot would have been given a hook in the middle of the second period when he allowed four goals to 15 shots. Certain goals were certainly happy, but this was by no means the beginning Dadbot wanted to have.
  • Caleb Jones was a heavy night, but he was truly one of the unique moments he looked like a newcomer. But even though he made some mistakes, some of which even led directly to goals, there is no better way to learn than to go through these situations alone.
  • How about 40% of the circle? Just another punch in the tibia, really.
