Oilers vs. Avalanche

January 18, 2010


Technology is hard. On the weekend I PVR’d the Sharks game but I set if for regular Sportsnet instead of HD. Bush! I can’t believe the difference, standard def is extremely difficult to watch. And today I forgot to set the box to record the Avalanche game, any chance that it will just go for no reason? I didn’t think so.

Edit: It’s a payperview game! Ha! Good luck with that one guys! *Scrambles to order game*

-It was very interesting to see Devan Dubnyk in between the pipes for the Oilers on Saturday. This is a cold, gloomy city to live in these days, but I think Dubnyk’s presence should give fans a glimmer of hope that management is finally looking to the future, regardless of the present. Because in case you didn’t know, the present state of the Edmonton Oilers is akin to wacthing a train wreck fighting Godzilla: interesting and disastrous. 

– I’ve discovered the method for enjoying the Oilers at this stage in the season: they have to be the last team to score. I was left in a fairly decent mood after the 4-2 loss to the Sharks, and I’m pretty sure it’s because Patrick O’Sullivan was the last to score in the game. They obviously lost to a good team, but I almost want them to spot the other team 3 goals every game and then battle back to within one. A little bit of excitement, but they still lose and inch ever closer to a sure-thing lottery pick. The fact that is was O’Sullivan only added to the tiny glimmer of satisfaction, and the goal being short-handed was icing on the cake. A very poorly baked cake.

Go Oilers!

    Now it’s not a matter of scoring last, but just watching an Oiler score at all would probably help keep us all in a decent mood!

      That’s true, but all I’m saying is that if they score a bunch first, and then the other team scores and wins, then we’re left with a bad taste. And if they straight up win, well then we’ll just be all confused and frustrated. Dig? So if they lose but they’re last to score then we’re left with a bit of happiness in an otherwise cloudy, unhappy world.
