Bryz was 100% schemin in this one. Guy def loved every stoppage.
The two minute penalty was a slap on the wrist. I knew as soon as I saw the replay that Nolan was gonna get a game… And that’s what happened. Literally popped Jesse Jo in the suckhole for no reason. I thought me JJ chirped Nolan after the scrum, but that didn’t happen at all.
This is Nolan when he heard the news from G Betts and Billy Diesel
BETTER WRAP THAT GAVEL UP B
Ben Scrivens made 59 stops tonight against the fucking San Jose Sharks. That stat somehow set a franchise record for the Edmonton Oilers by passing Bill Ranford. This all blows my mind because ummmm Grant Fuhr played for OilCity.
Scrivens was literally 11 saves away from tying Ron Tugnutt’s record for 70 goddamn saves in a game.
I really don’t know if Doud could’ve handled that scenario at all…
Me and my boy Rob got tickets for like $15 to sit upstairs at Wells Fargo and see the Oil show take on the Flyers in a matinee tilt down in Philly on Saturday because why the hell not. If the Rangers plan to steal Yakupov or take on Hemsky I figured I may as well see what they got and let Glen know what I think because of course he knows no I am and I’m important to those types of decisions.
The night prior, obviously me Rob and Trapp are at the bar and like 10 shots of fireball and/or Jameson later the kid decides he’s commin with so I scoop him up a seat on the hub. Cut to the next morning and Trapp’s on my couch, can’t function for shit and ends up puking all over himself. Clearly didn’t make it to Philly. Get your life together son.
Last night 10/28/13 marked a special night in hockey. Lindy Ruff now the coach of the Dallas Stars played his first game in Buffalo as an opposing coach for the first time in 14 years. That’s pretty special stuff to coach a team for that long, it’s unfortunate the yug never got to win the Stanley Cup all those years in BuffNation. Also in that game tonight was the debut of Matt Moulson who was acquired yesterday by the Buffalo Sabres from the New York Islanders in exchange for Thomas Vanek. Islanders gave up a good amount to get him so hopefully it pays off for them. Matt Moulson was a well liked guy in that lockerroom, let’s see how this affects the team and overall his dude Johnny Tavs.
Tonight was also the home opener for the New York Rangers against the Montreal Canadiens. This comes after a 9 game road trip which was pretty much a nightmare for the team and fans. After the first period I gave the edge to the Rangers but the officiating took over the game for a couple questionable calls. Won’t get into great detail but apparently Brian Boyle should’ve just allowed the opposing player to skate gingerly through the neutral zone instead of bodying him up? And also Chris Kreider shouldn’t make attempts to stay onside just go offside? Regardless the Rangers ended up losing the game 2-0.
In other news: Chicago beat the shit out of Minnesota again, Canucks won, Saku Koivu probably has a concussion after the Brandon DubDub hit which was clean by the way, Robbie Scuds has a broken ankle and will miss a shit ton of time from the Penguin lineup, Hanzal is suspended again, Vanek will play for the Islanders tonight and Carl Hagelin will play for the Rangers tonight.
