B&J #76 Edmonton Oilers Recap vs Colorado Avalanche 10/27/09
Welcome to Oilers Jambalaya - An Edmonton Oilers Hockey Blog. Beers & Jeers is a dual collaboration between Smokin' Ray and Paq Twinn. We hope you enjoy our Edmonton Oilers full game recap.
- The Duffman is back! Comrie kicks the flu and gets back in tonight. That means that Peckham and MacIntyre are watching from the press box. Staios, Souray, Pouliot and Pisani are still injured. Pisani did skate today and word is he may play against the Bruins on Saturday. With people coming back, it makes the cap issues tight. The Oilers should have hired a juggler.

BAD TIMING PENALTY
None - The only real BTP was the refs not calling any on Colorado. Twice the Oilers should have had a PP.
(Smokin' Ray) Ethan Moreau - Baaad!
(Paq Twinn) Robert Nilsson - Baaad!
Zack Stortini - I liked his vigor tonight. He played with passion and busted his hump. If only the rest of the team played like him. The stats don't reflect his actual play tonight. I thought that he was good enough for a beer. Frosty? Cheers!
Nikolai Khabibulin - Solid, solid, solid! He kept this team in the game and the team did nothing. I sure hope we aren't wasting all his good energy on crappy games like this. The Bulin wall was once again just that. What else can we say about him? Great game. Miller time? Cheers!
HONORABLE MENTION(S): Shawn Horcoff (He actually played pretty good. He was trying hard. He did good at being defensive but was really bad on faceoffs.), JF Jacques (He was hitting people and causing a commotion where ever he went.), The 1st Line (Even though they didn't score, they played pretty good. They just needed to shoot more.)
The Entire Team - Two games in a row and not one goal. WTF? Boooooo!
Denis Grebeshkov - One giveaway (bull crap! It was way more than that.) and two blocked shots and he was -1. The worst of the worst two games in a row. That must suck. Boooooo!
HONORABLE MENTION(S): Robert Nilsson (Wow. You did squat out there and was a -2. Does he get sent to the minors first? He's my guess.), Ethan Moreau (Are you our leader? You could have fooled me.)
OUR GAME SUMMARIES
Smokin' Ray - Everyone played pretty average. It's sick to watch. The sickest part was the absolute worst referee's ever. Twice there was a blatant hit from behind and no call. I wonder if the Oilers could file a complaint? Not that it's going to change anything. After watching Pat Quinn in his post game conference he's mad. And rightfully so. What else did he say? One Oiler player (he won't say who) has the H1N1 virus and it's confirmed. Crazy huh? Who could it be? Buck up for the next game boys, or the Rexall crowd is going to get pissy.
Paq Twinn - I'm going to make this quick. UNACCEPTABLE. I can handle losses but not like these last two. Injuries or illness aside, getting shutout twice in a row is foul. Get better soon, on and off, the ice.
