The @EdmontonOilers need to pull Skinner in period 2 and put in Campbell.

After going down 2-1 in the series, my preference would have been to start Campbell today, but now down 3-0 after 1 period that’s enough. Time for a change.
At the very least Skinner should have saved the second goal. #LetsGoOilers
This is not excusing that the Oilers offence has been abysmal the last 4 periods (or more). They have not looked good. #letsGoOilers

Thought of the #LetsGoOilers Game 1 loss to the #GoKingsGo :

1. The Kings are definitely for real. They have nothing to lose and have tonnes of swagger. Doughty is a villain and yes we'd take him in a heartbeat if he fit under our cap /1
2. You can't blame reffing for a loss. I don't think this is a REAL trip by Deharnais on Lizzy, but a ref is going to call that 10 times out of 10. Knowing when to sell a dive is gamesmanship and yes, even McDavid knows this.
3. More concerning is the lack of discipline shown by Kane with his stick and Bouchard seemingly missing a check to the shoulder and laying the lumber straight to the face with under 2 mins left to play.

You cannot gift that many PPs to the Kings. Ever /3

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.

As a Brazilian hockey and soccer fan who likes soccer jerseys and loves to see jersey concepts for hockey I couldn't help but to wonder how they would look like and since I didn't find something like that I created one for each team! Image
Disclaimers: soccer jerseys usually have a sponsor and since we don't have that in NHL I simply used the helmet sponsors (for those cool guys that don't have one like Avs and Flyers I used the one from arena naming rights)

Teams are in abbreviation order!

Ok let's go!
1 - Anaheim Ducks
#FlyTogether @AnaheimDucks @DucksBRA

It's pretty simple but I think it looks fine, didn't want to mess something Image

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.

#LetsGoOilers A black cat tan rottweiler ...
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.

#NHLPups A black-and-tan rottweiler ...
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.

So for all my #yeg and #LetsGoOilers followers, if you were making a series about the rise of our puck dynasty, who would make your cast? Who plays Wayne and Mess? Sather? Puck? Others?
Dylan Playfair or Wyatt Russell as Wayne? ImageImage
The Office's David Denman as Glen Sather. Image

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.

Darnell Nurse, signed 8x$9.25M by EDM, is an offensive D who scored a lot of goals this season but who has consistently surrendered quality scoring chances when on the ice. Don't think he's nearly as bad as the overall projection suggests, but this is a BIG number. #LetsGoOilers
This is a really tricky player to evaluate. First of all, we know that special teams WAR is tricky, and the Oilers for the past two seasons have ranked highly on the PK while giving up a lot of xG. Could be goaltending, could just be something the model is missing.
Second of all, there's simply no getting around the fact that with McDavid, Nurse's numbers were excellent (55.6% xGF%) and without him they were awful (43.7% xGF%).

Fun fact: the Edmonton Oilers rank first in the NHL in the percentage of their shots, shot attempts, and unblocked shot attempts that are taken by defencemen. #LetsGoOilers
Evan Bouchard leads all defencemen in personal share of on-ice shots taken. By far. Of the Oilers' 80 5v5 shots on goal with him on the ice, he has taken 31 (39%).

2nd place is Nick Holden with 28%. #LetsGoOilers
Oilers defencemen ranks in personal share of on-ice 5v5 shots on goal:

Evan Bouchard (1st)
Tyson Barrie (17th)
Kris Russell (58th)
Darnell Nurse (67th)
Caleb Jones (89th)
Slater Koekkoek (90th)
Adam Larsson (128th)

When fascism comes to Alberta, it will be draped in the flag, wearing a NHL jersey over it’s l ❤️ O&G hoodie, and driving a blue truck.
...and the blue truck, a Dodge, won’t have mud flaps—which is a violation of section 64 of Vehicle Equipment Regulation of the Traffic Safety Act.

When fascism comes to Alberta, there will be well known, documented cases of it aldready making a career out of oppressing minorities and women.

People will not notice this.

They will see the flag, jersey, & hoodie, & think “it’s someone like me.”…
