To say “it was another bad start for the Oilers” is just rubbing salt in the wound…or beating a dead horse…or slapping Devan Dubnyk around…or…oh, I think you get the gist.
Reading the shots on goal stats, ya gotta rub your eyes a few times and wonder ‘did I read that correctly?’ Yes indeedy, Ducks outshot the Oilers 22 to 12.
Rewatch the game, you can clearly see Jonas Hiller falling asleep in the crease.
Teemu Selanne scored 34 seconds into the first and then the snoozefest began.
The announcer called Selanne’s line “the grumpy old men line”.
Even the Parros “fight” was rather lame as McIntyre spent most of his time trying to hold hands.
Hot off this road trip sweep, we face the Caps on Wednesday at home.
I think I’m gonna take a nap.
Happy Valentines Day to everyone and guys, please resist the urge to take your loved one to Hooters even though they are having a buy ten, get ten free wings free today.
