      Weir and Pouliot have scored for the Oilers on PS’s in Toronto, have there been any others? I don’t know.

      And Tyler, who in hell predicted this team for the playoffs? I honestly don’t recall anyone saying they’d make the second season.

      That was classic. Two #21′s involved in the play. I used to tell people I wore 21 in tribute to Salming and Forsberg, but now I tell them I wear it in tribute to Stan Weir.

      Stan Weir eats live mice before taking penalty shots.

      I’m keeping an eye on the Preds/Wings and the good news is that Nsh leads the post totals 2-0.

      But there’s something weird going on with Det; their players are in the right position in the O zone but their passes just aren’t clicking. The legs are there but it’s almost like a team that hasn’t played in a week and can’t make that final pass to create the big opps.

      Scoreless after 40 in Det. Wings carried the play in the last 6 or 7 min of the second but Ellis came up with two outstanding saves.

      I’m in fall-on hope mode today;) and it didn’t strike me at the time just how huge it was to give those two points to the Avs on Friday night.

      Fuck, with two of their last three games vs Minny, for the sake of five seconds we could be tied with them in wins and trailing them by just one point.

      Brutal point for the Preds. Crap. 1-1-1, I guess. No better in their last three. The rest of the Central is good, right?

      Also, I don’t know who the broadcasters are there but the guy who said “One of the meeces is chasing the referee” is genius.

      That loss to the Avs on Friday looks even more killer two days later. If we’d held, the Avs would have 88 points, and the Oilers would be tied with Nashville for 8th with 87.

      They only recently got a couple of players (Dan Cleary, Val Filppula) back from injuries. Maybe that’s why they are a little out of sorts.

      Ty: Wings broadcasters are Ken Daniels, Mickey Redmond and today they were running a three-man booth with Larry Murphy.

      Wings ruled the last half of the game but Ellis was on fire.

      As for Nsh’s chances from here on out, two of their games on the road against teams that have better home records than the Preds have road records.

      I hope that means something going forward.

      This clip has EVERYTHING.

      The Detroit game was brutal, I was shocked to see that the Wings had totalled 31 shots on Ellis–you could tell about halfway through that regulation was gonna end 0-0.

      Fuck do I ever love the Central Division. Detroit clinches by January, St. Louis, Chicago and Columbus get eliminated at about the same point in time and then Nashville has about 20 divisional games in which they’re the only team that gives a shit about the result.

      I’m going to say it now, FUCK Nashville and whatever they do the rest of the way.

      Tuesday: Oilers beat Flames, Colorado handles Vancouver.

      Thursday: Oilers beat Canucks, Minny takes down Calgary

      Saturday: Vancouver and Luongo stop the Flames again.

      All that happens in regulation? Three way tie between the Oilers/Flames/Canucks at 90 points, with the Oilers winning the wins tiebreaker.

      Given the shitfest we watched last season, it would be a fitting end to a hell of a comeback and a nice even-up from the hockey gods.

      Not betting a cent on it happening, but hot damn, if it did, six months of GLOATING in the direction of Canuck and Flame fans? It’s an Oiler fan’s wet dream……
