McDavid had an absolutely crazy game for the Oilers last night but lost the game 4-3 because that's Big Beige for you.

 

(Big Beige?)

 

With his beautiful goal and the Oilers outshooting the Ducks 15-3 at one point, I thought it was going to be a long night. Ducks then got some timely goals and turned it on to outshoot Edmonton 31-17 the rest of the game. Ducks even gave Edmonton like a minute and a half of 6-on-3 at the end of the game, but the Oilers didn't do a damn thing with it until their 3rd goal on a crazy McDavid pass with 8 seconds left (which was probably offsides anyway, but whatever. 8 seconds left).

 

I don't know about "Randypuck" but things are really clicking all of a sudden. Rakell is having a monster year, Getzlaf is looking like Getzlaf again, defense has been solid all year, Bernier's been hot. Only 2 points behind San Jose for first now, too. If they can play like this in a month... I don't know, but things are working right now.

Marc Methot's finger got hacked off last night.  That was nasty to see.

The Oilers' magic number is four.

There's a 100% chance that #66 Josh Ho-Seng gets booed everytime he touches the puck tonight, when the Islanders visit the Penguins in Pittsburgh.

No penalty, no supplemental discipline. Routine play.

I'm honestly surprised they're not doing something to discipline Crosby.  Methot's going to miss several weeks, apparently.  If this was the other way around, Methot would've been suspended likely multiple games.

I'm usually not one to tie myself in knots about uneven NHL discipline but dude cut another dude's fingertip off. Take a night off!

I know there would be plenty of disappointed fans who bought tickets to see him play. But I agree with you. Bench him.

a game after tapping a guy in the bean bag. Give him a game for lifetime achievement.

Of course they won't discipline him, he's Crosby. If anyone else does this (including the tap two games ago) they get vilified, called out, and 2-3 minimum. But the NHL won't do anything, because he's Crosby. 

 

I lost all respect for NHL player safety a while ago, but this sets a new low. Congrats, NHL.

Sharks seem to be getting hot just at the right time, but hot in the way like your ass after a really spicy curry.

Yeah what the hell is going on there? I left the division title for dead a long time ago, now the Ducks and Sharks are tied for first with Edmonton in spitting distance.

This walking abortion they've become is kind of simple once you break it down: Boedker can't score, Hertl and Donskoi haven't done anything since returning from injury, the power play is an even worse pile of hot garbage and we keep giving ice time to a sack of crap named Michael Haley.

 

I didn't expect them to get back to the Finals but I really thought they could get back to the WCF after outplaying the Caps a mere two weeks ago. And yet, they've decided to get complacent/sick/tired at the worst time in the season. It's one thing to suck since January. It gives me time to get used to the failure. But blowing a 9 point lead and getting sodomized by Dallas of all teams?

Go pound sand boys. Play like you give a :censored: of just roll over and die so those who bought season tickets after last years run rush to get refunded money to spend it on the Dubs.

 

Whatever. I'm going to go drink.

This stuff will make you forget all about those Sharkies. It'll burn a hole in your wallet, but at least that hole will be smaller than the one the Sharks leave in your heart.

For the record, I'm sticking with beer - milk stouts since spring is coming too soon - but I like the way you roll. Only thing is I haven't found a scotch that isn't heavy handed on the pears. It's okay for a couple sips but I'd much prefer bourbon or Irish whiskey.

 

TL:DR - They're playing more like Seals, less like Sharks.

Welp, the Trailer Park Preds are hammering the Sharks tonight. Couture is like your average person from that area right now: missing several teeth.
