Oilers vs. Canucks: Game Thread

The Oilers are currently in the midst of a ten-game winning streak. That streak continues tonight.

Prediction: 3-0, Oil. DustIn The Wind gets on track with the trick, including a third goal on the Most Exciting Play In Hockey™.

Comments:

We are setting self fulfilling prophecies for the Oil. I want Hemmer to get 2 tonight.
 


As for matt's "grammatical" criticism of the construction "in the midst of a five-game losing streak", would anyone feel put off by the sentence: "The Red Wings were in the midst of a nine-game winning streak until they ran into a determined Black Hawks squad, who ended it"? "in the midst", "in the middle", etc etc are all used to mean that the event (in this case, a streak) has not been completed (this type of thing is called "aspect" in Linguistics). There are many many many other examples that work similarly, and nothing is wrong with it.

So, on that note, the Oilers are going to see an end to their 1 game winning streak, 4-3 Canucks, although they are out-shot 35-23.

Because we're better grammarians.
 


OoOoOOIILLLLEERRSZZZ.

Sorry, I thought I'd take the classiness down a notch.

Time to crack open a beer!
 


Off Topic:

I believe in ethical investment, so I'm happy to announce, on the Battle of Alberta blog, that I have divested the only Calgary Flame on my office hockey pool roster, trading Alex Tanguay for Carey Price and Paul Ranger.
 


Off Topic:

Um, more like completely on-topic. Well done, sir!
 


Ranger got a goal today, I think.

Does that count in your pool?
 


Hey, when did Razor Ramon become the Canucks' goaltender?
 


We've lost seven straight games to the Canucks? Shoot me.
 


Well there's goes Stoll for half a season.

Anyone?
 


This just in: FUCK.
 


STOOOLLLL.

That's like what, your third glossary addition in a week?
 


We need a nickname for Oiler shoulder injuries that are the result of guys fighting because we don't have a tough guy on the team.
 


Stoll is back on the ice. Holy that was some magic by the trainers!

Unless Jesus is one of our trainers, i'm gonna guess it wasn't as bad as it appeared. Glad he's back to not score, though. :)

Does DustIn The Wind ever hit anybody? Like ever?
 


That question to Bieksa was awesome.

"Did it surprise you that it took you and Mattias Ohlund getting injured before your team starting playing well defensively?"

Bieksa looked like he was going to rip his head off.
 


This team walks a tightrope every night. I can't believe all of these unforced turnovers.

And I never thought I'd ever hear "Brad Isbister with a great chance."

His presence on this roster alone should be Reason Number 1 why this is not a playoff team.

I thought that was called a 'Stortini'
 


That Stoll turnover makes me want to cut my eyes out.

DisLaraqued Shoulder.
 


Ranger got a goal and an assist and is 2G 1A +4 2PIMs in his last 2 games. Of course I have him sitting on the bench while Kubina gets injured 1 game into my pool's week and a huge hole in my defensive active lineup.

Also I had a chance at Iggy and grabbed Vanek instead (couldn't bring myself to pick him).

I thought that was called a 'Stortini'

No a 'Storini' is hugging your opponent or hanging onto him for dear life until the officials intervene and 'break it up' also know as saving your life.

I'll call it Grier shoulder in honour of that much former Oiler.
 


or a 'Rosie'.

Holy that was some magic by the trainers


Sparky has a secret equipment case full of priceless and magical Oiler artifacts, such as an un-washed game-worn Gretzky jockstrap. Stoll to the room, a quick laying on of the magical 'cup', and VOILA! - stolly's good to go.

Unfortunately, after Stoll's first concussion, Sparky tried to tap Stoll gently on the head with a stick Mark Messier had snapped in half in 1989 while trying to kill a guy, and accidentally gave him the second concussion.
 


Antro: I got all giddy reading about aspect in your post. Three years of Russian, I know far more about aspect than I'd ever want to.

To get moreaued: to wreck your shoulder because your coach is a pussy and won't play a real goon.

Also, Garooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!
