New Game, Same Results


I was told today via Twitter that I need to look on the brighter side of things when it comes to the Edmonton Oilers.

After a 4-0 defeat at the hands of St. Louis, I’ll give it a try.

  • The Oilers are a professional hockey team based out of Edmonton, Alberta Canada.  I’m thankful that they exist.
  • Each season, they play 82 regular season games, and if luck allows, the playoffs.  Next year.
  • We are fans of this team.  We bitch and moan about how bad some nights are, but we love this team.  Like a jilted lover in a relationship that we cannot shake, we will be back every night.
  • I get really cranky after a few months of no hockey.  I’m glad I can watch the Oilers on TV or the Internet.

There.  How’d I do?

Like the Wild, the Oilers can’t beat the Blues.  Not for anything.

The Oilers were held to twelve shots for the third time this season last night.  I really don’t know what else to say.  Khabibulin didn’t have a great night, and not to beat a dead horse, that whole twelve shot thing.

In an attempt to divert your attention from the hockey game that was going on, there were some tilts in the first period keep your attention.  If we can get through the rest of the games this year with no more injuries, I’ll call that a victory.

The Oilers are on an 0-6-2 run in their last eight games.  They’re almost a lock for 30th overall this year.

There’s a game tomorrow against the Calgary Flames.  Anytime the Oilers can defeat the Flames, it’s a good time.  I don’t care if it’s the preseason.  The Flames were at one time right with the Oilers in the standings this year, but now are just two points out of the current playoff picture.

Come on.  Let’s have some fun tomorrow night.  A six goal outburst.

I can dream.
