    i'm still smirking after Perron went right back to the same move as Eberle to school the old man -- i mean legend.

    player of the game, hands down: The Joker.

    A sociology student could do their thesis on our GDT's today.

    just heard Eakins was playing the best players at the end of the game and they won it....

    I would not mind if that trend continued.

    Nugent-Hopkins was dominant all game and Hall looks like he has some of his mojo back. Eberle still looks lost despite the shootout goal.

    In this case, correlation does equal causation!

    Perron & Hemmer seem to be friends (talking prior to shootout). I like that. They also happen to be 2 of our best 3 forwards right now (Nuge).

    Those first two periods were ****, but all worth it in the end

    Agreed. That shift was the turning point.

    Perron added exactly what we wanted from him that game.

    Nuge looked amazing.

    Great win.

    The Oilers needed that.

    Everyone's been dying to cheer for something all summer. I'll even forgive the blown lead since It's amazing we were in that position to begin with. Props to all you who kept the game on. I turned it off after the 3-0 goal.

    Don't mind giving an Eastern Conference team a loser point. That comeback was huge for the team's confidence. Team still needs work on containing the opposing team's cycle.

    Wow what a win! The third period is how the Oilers have to work all the time.

    I can't see how there ever could have been a question IMO. We got the better player.

    This game really showed me the type of player that Perron is. Awesome win.

    What a frustrating game (except for the 3rd period comeback of course), so glad we won even though they didn't really deserve it. I'll be able to sleep a little better tonight!
