What a great run by the Oilers. While this was not the outcome we all hoped for, and the pain and sting of the loss is still new and raw, but it was so much fun to feel that playoff energy and excitement again.
#Oilers #LetsGoOilers

This team, our team, gave us some great memories these playoffs. Remember, we made it to the final 4 and we were watching and cheering our team in June.

My highlights include the gutsy game 6 and 7 against LA, capped with McDavid scoring late in the 3rd to seal the series.

Against Calgary, Kane's natural hat trick in just over 6 minutes in game 3.

Nuge's game winner late in game 4.

McDavid's OT goal to end the Flames season.

And of course, Woodcroft waiting to shake Sutter's hand.

Ohmydogness! I was working and now I'm late for tonight's game! My @EdmontonOilers are playing the @NHLFlyers and I'm predicting a 3-2 Oilers win. I get a cube of Alberta beef when my team scores and a bonus for the win so I'm pretty excited.

Goaltreat!!! My #Oilers score the first goal and I'm on this treat as fast as our goalie on a puck.

It's 1-0 for my Oilers over the #Flyers and we're just getting into swing of things. I'm ready for more goaltreats.

SCORE!!! The #Oilers score their second goal and it's now 2-0 over the #Flyers. Equally important, Kuno ( that's me) gets a second goal treat!!! There's just over a period left.

#LetsGoOilers! More goaltreats!!

My @EdmontonOilers are playing the @Canes today. I'm predicting a 4-3 #Oilers win. I get a treat every time my team scores and today grade A Alberta beef pieces are on the line. A lot riding on this game. But I have faith in Connor McDavid. He called me cute.

The #Hurricanes score and it's now 1-0 over my #Oilers. Zero goaltreats for me so far. And our Captain has taken a stick to the face and has left the ice! Hopefully he'll be back!
It's still early in the game.

Dogdamnit! The #Canes score again. It's now 2-0 over my #Oilers.
We've had a ruff start but there's 2 full periods left.
Lots of time to catch up. But we need to stay out of the penalty kennel.

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Gerry Cheevers and his iconic mask. The first to have markings on it. #NHLBruins

I considered doing a thread just on Michel Dion's mask.

1/5 #Oilers hockey over this year. Enjoyed season, too bad ended early. Thoughts:
We lost cause we got out goalied and out coached. Smith was very solid but a level below Hellebuyck in every game. Not blaming him as he was great but #Oilersnation #nhl #OilersJets #EdmontonOilers
needed a difference maker. Hellebuyck is a Vezina winner and showed it. Needed that big save though to get us a win.
We couldn’t up our game in other ways to compensate for the fact that they had awesome tending.
Different penalty standards in playoffs hurts Oilers too.
Odd coaching moves:
- Would have liked to see 13 with 97 and 29 in OT as 13 played with 97 all year. Not sure what the thought process was there.
- Benching 74 all OT after he was on first d pair the day before.
- 9 forwards and 4 d for all OT is not a winning formula.

On Tuesday I found out that my baby was dead. I’ve never done a thread before, but I’m doing one because I think it’s important to spread this message. I’ll use some local hashtags #yeg #ableg #abhealth #AHS #yegcc #oilers #covid19 to show that I'm a real person in Edmonton, AB.
Who knows, maybe this will be therapeutic for me. I could sure use some therapy right now.
I need to start somewhere so I’ll start with March 27. That was the day we started to show symptoms. They weren’t severe but we knew something wasn’t right. My head felt cloudy, I was tired, it wasn’t a typical Saturday for me.

So one of the biggest complaints I've seen from #Flyers fans over their efforts this season, is "they get scored on a lot, right after scoring".

So let's find out if this is true...
#FlyersTalk #AnytimeAnywhere
Through 28 games in 2020-21, the #Flyers have been scored on 18 times within 5 minutes of scoring a goal.
- 12 of those goals against came within 2min of scoring
- 4 of them came within 1min of scoring
- 2 of them came within 30 seconds of scoring
#FlyersTalk #AnytimeAnywhere
How does this compare to the rest of the league?

Most goals conceded within 5 minutes of scoring:
1. #Oilers - 28
2. #Caps - 22
3. #Leafs - 20
4. #Flames - 19
5. #Flyers/#GoldenKnights - 18

and the fewest:

31. #Stars/#Ducks - 4
29. #Sharks - 6
28. #Bruins - 7
