Stanley Cup 2020 Playoffs: Oilers vs. Chicago Game 2

by Lowetide

In the words of the great philosopher Izzy Mandelbaum, “it’s go time” for the Edmonton Oilers tonight. In a best of five series, each game is double and double again. Expect a fantastic effort. Expecting a win? I can’t go that far.

This Oilers team is good enough to run the table, but have to get out of their own way. All facets of the game need to improve, beginning with attention to detail. It’s a tall order, friends.

THE ATHLETIC!

Great perspective from a ridiculous group of writers and analysts. I am proud to be part of The Athletic. Here are the most recent Oilers stories.

TONIGHT

There isn’t much to say about this game. The Oilers had the better season, finished in the top two in the Pacific and if the season had been allowed to finish we’d be having a different conversation. However, no one can or will use that as an excuse on the Edmonton side and I expect we’ll see a strong performance tonight.

The problem, as I see it, is that this club has rarely played a full 60 minutes and that might be required against Chicago this evening. I expect Edmonton arrives at this game with horses at full gallop ala the chariot race scene in Ben-Hur.

LINES (Five on Five)

Nuge-McDavid-Kassian: 11:48, 7-18 Corsi (28 percent); 4-10 shots (29 percent); 0-3 goals 2-4 HDSC.

Ennis-Draisaitl-Yamamoto: 10:28, 10-11 Corsi (43 percent); 5-7- shots (42 percent); no goals 2-2 HDSC.

The Oilers have to get more than four HDSC from these two lines and can’t get outscored 3-0 when they’re on the ice. Even if Tippett moves Nuge back to the Draisaitl line (he won’t, at least to start the game) to get the magic going, Edmonton cannot let this five on five badness stand. Man.

Athanasiou-Sheahan-Archibald: 5:30, 4-3 Corsi (57 percent); 3-2 shots (60 percent); no goals or high dangers.

Neal-Khaira-Chiasson: 7:04, 7-3 Corsi (70 percent); 3-2 shots (60 percent); no goals or high dangers.

The bottom two lines did exactly what is expected: Low event minutes and no goals against. Tippett will take these numbers all day. A goal for would be nice, Athanasiou and Neal have that ability.

Oscar Klefbom-Adam Larsson: 12:00, 5-14 Corsi (26 percent); 1-11 shots (8 percent); 0-2 goals and 0-3 HDSC. Oilers were 26-29 Corsi, 14-15 shots, 0-1 goals and 4-3 HDSC with the Swedish duo off the ice.

Darnell Nurse-Ethan Bear: 17:16, 12-17 Corsi (41 percent); 7-9 shots (44 percent); 0-1 goals and 3-3 HDSC.

Kris Russell-Matt Benning: 9:42, 12-8 Corsi (60 percent); 6-4 shots (60 percent); no goals and 1-0 HDSC.

I don’t think Klefbom-Larsson will have a game like that one again, if they struggle early tonight Tippett will pull the plug and we could see Klefbom-Bear. That’s the story morning glory.

Mike Smith: 21 minutes five on five; 14 saves on 17 shots (.824); Mikko Koskinen: 27 minutes five on five; 10 saves on 10 shots (1.000).

THE DRAFT

Look, I wish we weren’t talking about it either, but we’re here bitches. The Oilers could draft No. 1 overall, and that’s beyond incredible. IF Edmonton wins the lottery in 2020, my prediction is that the next lottery will not be a lottery at all. It will be a horse race, with all of the teams eligible represented by a specific horse. The race will start the moment Gary Bettman cocks his gun and shoots Edmonton’s horse. Here’s my top 20 for 2020:

1 L Alexis Lafreniere, QMJHL. NHL ready, fleet scorer who plays with an edge.
2 LC Quinton Byfield, OHL. August 2002, 6.04, 215. Big, powerful winger, excellent speed.
3 LC Tim Stutzle, DEL. Dynamic player, highlight reel offense. Tremendous skater.
4 LC Marco Rossi, OHL. Good speed, exciting, range of skills. Exceptional talent.
5 RHD Jamie Drysdale, OHL. Great speed, passing and instincts, instant offense from the blue.
6 LC Cole Perfetti, OHL. Outstanding talent, not as fast as top forwards, has tremendous skill.
7 RW Alexander Holtz, SHL. First-shot scorer with a range of skills, he’s an electric player.
8 LW Lucas Raymond, SHL. Smart player who has ridiculous skill. March 2002. Fine skater.
9 RW Jack Quinn OHL. Impressive offensive winger was a late breaker. Pure goal scorer.
10 RW Dawson Mercer, QMJHL. Impressive player who is both scorer and playmaker.
11 RC Mavrik Bourque, QMJHL. Creative center, great passer, great shot. Plays in tough areas.
12 LC Connor Zary, WHL. Quick, smart two-way center effective across 200 feet.
13 LD Jake Sanderson, USHL. Smart, fast two-way defenseman has complete skill set.
14 LC Anton Lundell, Liiga. Complete skill set, average speed but improving.
15 RC Seth Jarvis, WHL. Jarvis is a fantastic player, undersized and skilled. Big second half.
16 RW Noel Gunler, SHL. Has a great release and an impressive resume. Attractive option.
17 G Yaroslav Askarov, VHL. He plays an unusual style. June 2002, .923 VHL SP.
18 RC Jacob Perreault, OHL. Skates well, great shot, great numbers, excellent passer.
19 LC Jan Mysak, OHL. Skilled and is effective in all areas. Major move in second half.
20 LD Kaiden Guhle, WHL. Big defenseman has good foot speed and full skill set.

Woooooooo even strength

Munny

At least three things happened on that shift that never happened on Saturday.

jp

Rumors.

jp

Great pass by Nurse on the goal. Didn’t see that in real time.

PokeCheck

Is it just my feed, or does the arena sound like it’s being recorded at the end of a tunnel?

Zelepukin

Did Larsson just gets danced. He has looked off his game every shift.

Hockey Project

Oh, man. Larsson not looking great on the Toews rush.

Munny

Oilers failed to get the puck deep two straight sorties and Toews nearly made them pay.

Gerta Rauss

oh McBaby

jp

Hahahaha

Shit!!

OriginalPouzar

What a goal by McDavid (his second of the game).

Munny

97 scores again lol.

OilClog

The McDavid invitational!

PokeCheck

Seems that someone mistakenly prodded the McBear.

OriginalPouzar

I believe I was talking about the Oilers’ speed vs. Maatta……

Zelepukin

omg

Gerta Rauss

*something, something, McDavid is not a leader, something*

McDavid pulls ahead of Kubalik.

For now.

Terrible leadership

Crawford is putting up a save % that makes Mike Smith look good.

Gerta Rauss

Well, this calls for a Corona with a wedge of lime

Munny

Powerplay, nice.

Munny

Crow forced to make another tough stop.

OriginalPouzar

AA with his best 3 shift stretch as an Oiler – carrying the puck with authority – this player I like.

Munny

AA with a dandy rush and then the trio cycle the Tour de France.

Fuck u Kane

OriginalPouzar

Damn – that’s a huge goal by Kane – game back on.

jojonoshow

That one is Nurse trying to do too much.

Lucinius

Is it odd that when I saw Larsson get walked tonight the first thing that came to mind was; ‘why do we have a Leaf defenseman’?

Also; McDavid showing he is awesome.

RNH now with 5 points in the series.

oilersfan

Why did Nurse leave the front of the net? Bear had the guy behind the net and Niurse left The front of the net (where the goals are scored) wide open. That guy has a seriously low hockey iq

Lucinius

Aaaaand my feed just caught up to the Kane goal.

Blah.

OriginalPouzar

Tough tough shift for the Nurse/Bear pairing – couple giveaways by Bear and then the pairing can’t defend the dump and, subsequently, leave Kane alone in front.

OriginalPouzar

Yeah. He needs to elevate his game decision making wise. Few years in league now. Has to step it up.

Chiasson and Neal with some poor communication there led to that grade a chance by Boqvist

He just can’t figure it out.

Munny

Fastest goal from puck drop in Oiler history by Connor tonight.

jzed

Our D looks iffy. Bear passing it to white sweaters and Nurse leaving front of net while his partner in the corner. Defense whisperer on bench needs to whisper basics, and when in doubt, cover the front of the net. Connor with a ‘ I need to score 6 goals” look on his face. No personality though………..

Kane was McDavid’s guy.

Nugent-Hopkins was the first forward back and went with DeBrincat behind the net.

McDavid failed to pick up the late forward on his side.

Reja

We desperately need the next one.

Zelepukin

Klef and Lars on against the Kane line makes me very anxious.

Munny

KBomb, Bear and crew did a good job of keeping everything to the outside there

Nugent-Hopkins was the guy behind the net chasing DeBrincat.

man, Koski has been on point.

Munny

Not many people can stop Patrick Kane on a breakaway.

OriginalPouzar

Is it me or is Tip trying to get the McDavid up against the slow-as-molasses Maatta? Good job if that is intentional.

Hockey Project

The NBC crew just refuses to stop shitting on the production from Rogers.

jp

Big (small) play by Sheahan to get that out.

OriginalPouzar

Great shift by the 3rd line.

Both Kass and AA have looked good on that 3rd line.

Aside from the mental-mistake leaving Kane wide-open, Nurse has been all-over the ice, in a good way – making plays in all zones. Of course, that one mistake was a BIG one.

Munny

AA, mama Kass and Bobby Sheehan have consistently and handily won their line matchup thus far.

Jesse Prodigalvi

AA looking like a different player – great to see!

Munny

OriginalPouzar: Aside from the mental-mistake leaving Kane wide-open, Nurse has been all-over the ice, in a good way – making plays in all zones.

That OZone shift by the L3 started with Nurse making a deft steal of the puck off Kane.

It appears that i can’t buy 50/50 tixs as the server keeps giving me a “The service is unavailable” error. I’ve tried many time now, and i’ve even got to the final confirmation page, but the it gave me the “Oops! Something went wrong! your transaction has been aborted” shtick.

God dammit!!! The jackpot was at $2.75M the last time i got through!!!

DAMMIT PEOPLE!!! LET ME GAMBLE!!!!

OriginalPouzar

That was the most entertaining period of hockey the Oilers have played all summer!

Gerta Rauss

That’s a nice period but this CHI team is a tough match up for us

This isn’t going to be easy

Hockey Project

jake70: What are they saying?

They keep apologizing for the footage they’re showing, that they’re not in charge of anything, how they can only show what they’re given, apologizing for the poor quality, and talking about how much better it is with their own crew.

I mean it: non-stop with the nonsense.

Zelepukin

I like that play end of Nurse coming in down low, knowing there was only 5 or 6 seconds left.

OriginalPouzar

Jesse Prodigalvi:
AA looking like a different player – great to see!

Huge if he can be “this player” – his speed and skill is evident although I’m starting to think that he’s got Nurse-like offensive instincts and not great vision…….

Zelepukin

Overall, wow we need tighten our game in the D-zone. Giving way too much space. Klef and Lars really need to get their feet moving.

Fun period. Sportsnet is still in pre season mode with the time , shots and replay

What happened with that Nuge shot at the end ?

Hockey Project

OriginalPouzar: Huge if he can be “this player” – his speed and skill is evident although I’m starting to think that he’s got Nurse-like offensive instincts and not great vision…….

So, he just needs some glasses, like Ricky Vaughn in Major League. One hour at Lens Crafters, and they can deal with this.

Oil2Oilers

Kind of relaxed for the rest of the game. 97 will out score any.mistakes.

Lucinius

OriginalPouzar,

Same. Got my tickets early. Won’t win, but hell.. someone has to. I knew there was no way it would stay afloat the later it got.

Still feel that Yamma with Drai and Nuge would do serious damage. Just bounce pucks out at center and let the Chicago D sweat it out.

Yeah. We got our tix for the first 50/50 draw 20mins after it started the last time. but i was busy today and forgot. now its looking like im not getting any. the errors are happening on the first screen every time now…

🙁

Zelepukin

Neal has looked good too. Playing with a ton of energy. Hitting everything.

Hockey Project

By the way, when he plays well, Josh Archibald looks like he’s absolutely obnoxious to play against.

66 hertz rental

Wow now that’s more like it, win or draw I cannot complain about the effort. Is Yamamoto part honey badger, never quits. Keep it up, hawks have so much talent. No more walkabouts Mr. Nurse we need this one. Oh and it’s early morning here but cheers and have another Red Horse on me.

Yea. It’s incessant.

A pair of really nice plays in neutral zone by Chiasson.

Leon took one to the back. That is a dirty play that should be called all the time

Hopefully that plus stretch pass from Bear to AA is a sign Bear is starting to settle down and in.

I wonder if Chicago fans are screaming for Crawford to be pulled.

Kailer crunched from behind and the Oilers will go to the PP – if they don’t score with the extra-attacker.

He took Dach to take away the pass. A reasonable decision. Leaving the goaltender with the shot.

Dach would have been wide open at the side of the next otherwise.

horrible call

Reja

You just knew they would call a bullshit penalty on the Oilers.

jzed

Man, Kookoo double clutched and still was untouched . D zone coverage is crap, too much puck watching, like no one trusts anybody to do their job. Kassian had Keith hearing footsteps, but still ended up taking a penalty. Better kill this off

SK Oiler Fan

Material Elvis: The left winger’s man is the right defenseman.He wasn’t there.

I think he was in the opposite corner giving up the puck. Therefore that becomes the C’s man. All 5 were sucked to the rw all staring at the puck. Brutal D coverage. Has happened 3 or 4 times now. Not a Tippett team trait

Ennis covered the wrong D. Poor decision on his part. He went to cover the left D, leaving the right side of the ice completely uncovered, which is why Koekook had so much time and space.

Gerta Rauss

that’s a huge b2b PK

grande

oilersfan

That was two very Ticky tack calls On Kassian and Sheahan. The refs owe us one

OriginalPouzar

Much better effort on the PK – first one was all in the own zone but they battled even though dead tired and blocked at least 3 shots. 2nd PK was more of like what we saw most of the year – tough zone entry defence and making proper decisions on when to pounce and attack the puck for battles and clears.

steelymac17

This is all about Bettman getting the NHL TV ratings and nothing about a fairly officiated games.

Two straight penalty kills finally stops the stream of expletives from pouring out of my mouth.

If they are going to review that they have to change the penalty call from high sticking to holding the stick.

Strome used Sheahan’s stick to highstick Kassian.
