2017 PLAYOFFS GAME 5: SHARKS AT OILERS

Canadian hockey fans get a lesson in ‘framing the issue’ every time any network plays a 1991 playoff game between the Calgary Flames. Why? They run the damned Theo Fleury overtime goal from game 6 (Sunday April 14) instead of the Esa Tikkanen overtime goal from Game 7 (Tuesday, April 16). It’s completely ridiculous, but I see the Fleury goal 50 times a year, and have to play my CD to see the Tikkanen goal (and I do, while laughing like an idiot). This kind of unfair play is duly noted in my home and I hope it is in your home, too. Fair is fair, jackasses!

The Oilers beat the Los Angeles Kings (and Gretzky’s Oilers Pacific) in the second round, the sixth and deciding game put to bed by Craig MacTavish in overtime (another obscure piece of video). The Minnesota North Stars, in those wonderful uniforms, ended the run in five games during the Campbell Conference Finals. Mark Messier scored the final goal of his Oilers career in the final period he would play for Edmonton, assists to Glenn Anderson (fittingly) and Craig Simpson. The Messier Oilers were powerful, vicious, talented and determined. The man was a rock on skates and I miss this team because of him most of all. Box scores are here.

(SHOTS) LINES AND PAIRINGS (PLAYOFFS)

  • Patrick Maroon (10); Connor McDavid (8); Leon Draisaitl (1)

The line has just one goal (McDavid SH) and one assist (McDavid PP) through four games. Corsica.hockey tells us this trio is over 50 percent Corsi for 5×5 (97 is 52%) but in the 40s on the Fenwick scale. Far too soon to have any real value, but I pass it along because it’s there. Maroon’s 10 shots in four games is a solid number, Leon needs to shoot more. If this line can’t get it going, it behooves Todd McLellan to change up the lines pdq.

  • Milan Lucic (3); Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (13); Jordan Eberle (6)

This line has one goal (Lucic PP) and two assists (Lucic, Eberle, both at evens) through four games. Not good enough, but this trio should remain together. A total of 22 shots in four games is a solid number for a 2line. All three men are over 50 percent Corsi for 5×5 through these playoffs so far and would be (imo) a fairly easy choice for top performing line.

  • Drake Caggiula (3); Mark Letestu (12); Zack Kassian (9)

This line has two goals (Kassian SH and Kassian EV) two assists (Letestu PP and SH) the next mayor of our town (Kassian). The shot total over four games is strong, but Letestu gets PP time and that skews things a little. Still, the 3line has 24 shots and that leads all lines. Impressive.

  • Benoit Pouliot (4); David Desharnais (1); Anton Slepyshev (3)

This line has no points and are hovering in the mid-40’s in possession. I like both wingers, and Desharnais clearly has enough skill to get some good opportunities in the offensive end. The other options available to Todd McLellan (Iiro Pakarinen, Matt Hendricks, Jujhar Khaira, Joey Laleggia, Anton Lander) may see playing time in the coming games.

PAIRINGS (SA per 60)

  • Oscar Klefbom (22.21); Adam Larsson (26.17)

This tandem is performing better at shots against per 60 5×5 compared to the regular season. Oscar Klefbom (29.30) and Adam Larsson (29.77) are both more efficient so far against the Sharks compared to all year against all 29 teams. Oscar Klefbom has an even strength goal (the first of the series) which represents the only offense from this pairing so far in the postseason.

  • Andrej Sekera (34.16); Kris Russell (35.00)

Sekera (27.93) and Russell (28.00) were far more effective during the regular season than they are currently.

  • Darnell Nurse (27.36); Matt Benning (20.63); Eric Gryba (21.71)

Nurse is tracking better than his regular season (32.89), Benning (27.81) is also miles ahead compared to his (impressive) regular season numbers. Gryba (31.52) has been more effective using this method of measurement compared to the regular season. As above, sample size is not close to good enough, but we are discussing early trends.

There’s a lot of story to cover in this series, and tonight is a pivotal game. The San Jose Sharks delivered a massive body blow in Game 4 and we don’t know if the Edmonton Oilers can answer back. The club seems completely undisciplined and are not responding well to the Sharks disdain (San Jose veterans don’t respect the Oilers, likely due to years of hammering them into little pieces). Respect must be earned, and a win tonight would go a long way toward earning that respect.

OILERS TONIGHT

For me, the key tonight will be discipline. Edmonton has shown very little ability to learn from their own penalties during this series and that may be the most alarming part of the enterprise. I understand the concern over 5×5 scoring, but history tells us that will begin to flow at some point in time (although in a short series, “some point in time” could be October).

I predict a loss tonight if the Oilers can’t stay out of the penalty box. Edmonton could win this evening without 5×5 goals, but the club can make life easier for itself if two goals cash in the discipline. There is genuine concern (for me) about the health of 97’s linemates, and Todd McLellan should not hesitate to shuffle the winger deck in order to get things done. If San Jose gets a lead, flushing the fourth line should also be an option (depending on how they are playing).

If McLellan draws on some smoking aces, one hopes we see Lander but one suspects it will be Matt Hendricks.

Whatever you’ve done on game winning nights, you have to do it this evening. If it’s cooking a turkey, haul ass to the turkey store. If it’s drinking Freshie, giddyup. I’ll be cleaning the gutters again after 5pm tonight because that’s the job, man!

MCDAVID

Tonight is a lot about McDavid, of course every Edmonton game is a lot about 97. The Sharks have wiggled their way inside the Oilers collective, with predictable results. Young teams take time to adjust to shifting sands, an example being the way officials are calling these games.

If you check the comments section of this blog over the last few games, there are countless examples of frustration over the uneven refereeing. “There’s no way this is even” or “the Oilers are being judged on a different scale” can be heard over and over again.

You’re right. Them’s the facts. Veteran teams get the calls, upstarts get the shaft. It was like that when I started watching NHL hockey in the 1960s and it’s been that way since. The young Oilers are on the verge of losing a series learning that lesson. It’s happened before.

My money’s on McDavid finding a way. You?

    Pisani is sitting with Torres.

  37. Lucinius says:

    ashley,

    Isn’t just the speed; there’s also the fact it isn’t that big of an object and lots of visual things can distract the eye/subconscious on a shot like that.

    I can verify it happens, though, as a guy who played the netminder with some guys who could really pound the puck (thankfully little else). You lose sight of the puck, but your mind can kind of ‘track’ the puck based on experience and expectation.

    He’s with Torres. No idea why Stoll didn’t return.

    I’ve definitely heard that before, although I can’t say if he’s got the speed right.

  41. Lowetide says:

    First Period: 2-1 SJS, shots 16-13 again favoring San Jose. Corsi for 5×5 is 33-23 Edmonton.
    Second Period:1-1 tie, shots 13-5 Edmonton and Corsi for is 18-9 Oilers.
    Third Period: 1-0 EDM, 8-7 Oilers had the edge in shots, and in 5×5 Corsi for 17-15.
    Overall: 3-3 tie, Oilers lead in shots 34-28 and in Corsi for 5×5 68-47.

    Well, we’re in extra time now and I’ll tell you this is the point in the game where luck puts an axe through your front door, waltzes in, sits in your favorite chair and drinks your beer. We are now at the mercy of the Hockey Gods.

  42. Professor Q says:

    The eye can be tricked by many things. It’s similar to why you see wheels go backwards when they’re rotating forwards: the light effects etc.

    Same reason why ninja can trick your eyes and stay invisible (well, similar; as it has to do with eyes and light refractory and blind spots).

  43. delooper says:

    I’m stuffing my face with fruit rollups.

  44. SwedishPoster says:

    Could use him on the ice for the OT. Game 5 and everything.

    So.. you’re saying we’re screwed?

    Or is that the past, prior to the McDavid lotto win?

    It’s hard to remember where the Oilers standing in the ledger these days.

  47. LadiesloveSmid says:

    Nugey deserves a goal. Or a penalty to be called.

    Maybe if his name was Joe.

  48. LostBoy says:

    I’m almost feeling too old for this.

    Shades of Round 2, Game 3 in 2006 vs San Jose. Heading to OT with not quite everything but near as makes no difference so on the line.

    Though I don’t think I could make it to the 3rd OT tonight.

    Torts is still the best press conference around. Never sugar coated….

  51. Professor Q says:

    Tortorella was pissed. Oh dear.

  52. ashley says:

    Lucinius,

    I can see how there would be a delay in registering the speed (it takes time to send signals to the brain and the object travels while the signal is registering), so perhaps it’s a problem of reaction time rather than tracking. I suspect the eye can track very quickly, but the information can not be processed fast enough to react to it, especially at shorter distances. I’m only guessing. Not my area of expertise.

    Any physiologists out there? Ah forget it, the game’s coming back on.

  53. Crazy Pedestrian says:

  54. Android says:

    Professor Q,

    My favorite is fps in films/video games. It’s just a fast sequence of pictures, but our eyes and brains can’t follow it fast enough, so it appears to be fluid.

    I always laugh when people argue about the value between a graphics card that gives you 100 frames per second and one that gives you 110 frames. It’s completely irrelevant, as the human brain can’t tell the difference once you pass 60.

  91. ashley says:

    Total chaos.

  92. Lucinius says:

    ashley,

    As I understand it, the eye could track something as fast as ~170 mph, especially at medium distance. However, that presumes ideal conditions and things aren’t that simple; the center of the eye doesn’t actually detect motion that well (it’s more about detail); meanwhile your peripheral vision is excellent at detection motion.

    This is why after a goalie loses track of the puck they can often pick it back up when it gets close, because their eyes aren’t actually centered on the puck anymore, so their peripheral vision is what picks it up.

    This is over simplified (and I could go into more detail, but won’t because it’s hard to think coherently enough when I’m on my second bottle of vodka), and this is all just what I remember.

    As an aside; the computer fps issue you see debated online all the time is hilarious. The human eye can ascertain the difference between fps rates as high as 180-200 — especially with dedicated gamers (it’s a trained skill). You see similar results with fighter pilots and other, similarly stimulated professions.

    Average person? Anything over 60 fps is iffy.

    And while I’ve been typing all this.. the bloody Oilers have almost won the damn thing a couple times. C’mon!

    delooper:
    A Russell end-to-end rush would have been a beautiful way for the game to end.Perhaps, not to be.

    If he wins a cup, the Flames are sure to give him 4-4.5 million x 5

  135. Android says:

    I’m sitting here nervously, keeping myself sane with OOTP baseball during the breaks.

  136. Spengler says:

    Yak Efron:
    My Fitbit thinks I’m running a marathon.

    My fit bit went to bed a half hour ago. Oh wait….

  138. Crazy Pedestrian says:

  140. Lloyd B. says:

    Yak Efron:
    My Fitbit thinks I’m running a marathon.

    Fitbits are untested during a game 7 overtime. They might explode.

  141. TheGreatMutato says:

  142. spoiler says:

    Randorf still calling the series like the Sharks are the protagonists.

  143. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Jeezus Ebs…

  144. Professor Q says:

    Crazy Pedestrian:
    Dammit… momentum buzzkill there…

    Commentators even questioned if the refs did that intentionally.

  145. Lucinius says:

    TheGreatMutato:
    martin jones 1st star regardless fuck me sideways

    Unless he scores on himself, I agree. He has been out-standing tonight.

  146. Gret99zky says:

    Eberle offside……again!

  147. delooper says:

    Jones looks like one of my chickens.

  148. Professor Q says:

    TheGreatMutato:
    martin jones 1st star regardless fuck me sideways

    Why not Talbot? 😉

  149. BONE207 says:

    LT…you’re not too old. Just out of condition due to the decade of darkness. You’ll come around next series…👍

  150. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Ffs… fall down or something jones…

  151. Professor Q says:

  153. jp says:

    Lucinius:

    A win here would be glorious.

    Glorious. Fuck that other stuff

  154. Professor Q says:

    Only a faceoff? No penalty?

  155. BeerMe says:

    Hey is it time for Maroon to take another offensive zone penalty?

  156. LMHF#1 says:

    Crazy Pedestrian:
    Jeezus Ebs…

    Hopkins’ fault.

  157. Lucinius says:

    BeerMe,

    Pouliot’s turn, I think.

  158. Iztok Turk says:

    ….Ughh….. the liver…….

  159. Lloyd B. says:

    Professor Q:
    Too intense.

    This is only game 5. Too intense is coming.

  160. Spengler says:

    Nuge! Looking good on the fly there.

  161. BONE207 says:

    Nuge wants the winner

  162. Lucinius says:

    RNH is more McDavid than McDavid is, in this overtime.

  163. delooper says:

    Nuge is starting to look like the witch again.

  164. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Oilers slowing a bit… uh oh…

  165. Iztok Turk says:

    ghosts of 2006 stirring

  166. Younger Oil says:

    Panicy by Nurse, could cost us.

  167. StixMalone says:

    Sharks with the rope a dope?

  168. fuzzy muppet says:

    Time out.

  169. Gret99zky says:

    Can’t clear an Fing table…

  170. spoiler says:

    Nurse will learn…

  171. Pajamah says:

    Don’t want to break up Nugic, but maybe McNuge line?

  172. Lloyd B. says:

    Are we having fun yet?

  173. TheGreatMutato says:

    Nuge so good.

  174. Younger Oil says:

    You have to call that hook on Burns. Prevented a 2 on 1 and a change.

  175. delooper says:

    Wayne is wearing a gold brick on his wrist.

  176. Gret99zky says:

    RNH is tired of living in 97’s shadow. He’s playing for the C.

  177. StixMalone says:

    I feel more worn out than the players!….

  178. Younger Oil says:

    So the offence freezing it gets them an O-Zone draw?

    Fuck that.

  179. delooper says:

    Gret99zky:
    RNH is tired of living in 97’s shadow.He’s playing for the C.

    RNH is overjoyed playing hockey that matters. To many years in the cellar.

  180. Lucinius says:

    Am I the only who gets worried when I see Russel on the ice?

    I know he has to play, or the other guys would risk dropping dead of exhaustion, but.. I clench a little bit extra when I see that #4 out there.

    Used to be a Delay of Game penalty.

    If in the crease it’s an automatic Goal.

  186. Android says:
