    So Koskinen isn’t the starter then?

    Deep team beats shallow team. Nothing to see here.

    Fix the defense.

    Positives: Likely no Lucic for the next few games

    Negatives: Nurse has been a tire-fire this year

    They will win the Cup if Vasilevsky plays like he did tonight in the playoffs.

    Too many errors on our part, but I actually thought that was one of McDavid's best games of the year. Could've easily had 3 or 4 points.

    Team really needs to capitalize on there shots more. The shots that should go in 9 out of 10, Oilers always seem to be the 1 out of 10.

    Now we have a bigger problem because it looks like we just aren't very good at any position.

    I like what Lucic did. Refs lost the game early when they let TB run around. Nurse and Russell are a tire fire.

    Thought we really didn't play too bad. Vasilevskiy really made this game look more like a blowout then it was. Also the refs probably won them that. Bad calls and noncalls really sunk the Oilers tonight. If there was any consistency we would have had lots more power plays then what we got. Also missing two boardings and a spear is brutal. TMac really should call them out.

    In a span of a week we went from 2 starters to 2 back ups. This was a weird game that we deserved to lose but could if won. Line-up looked a little out of sync, and Nurse/Russell were a combined -7.

    We are now a middle of the pack team, but the schedule starts to tilt in our favor soon, we need to use this game, make adjustments and get back on track asap.

    Team has been taking a pretty big break from proper defensive effort. Maybe they figure these 2 games were not that winnable and what's the point of going all in. Better get back on the wagon ASAP.

    Tampa bay is top team in the east. That said, our D needs help. Can we recall Bouchard? ( jk I know we can't)

    At least we can pump the breaks on Nurse too. Guy needs to settle down and not play like a rover, because he doesn't have enough offensive impact to justify playing like a rover.
