Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks Random Notes- January 16, 2019
No Elias Pettersson=Bad news for the Canucks Good to see the #Hockeytalks campaign in the pregame ceremony. I have close relatives that have had issues with their mental health. Interesting to see the Canucks match Sutter up against McDavid. My instinct tells me Sutter is in over his head, but against McDavid pretty well everyone isIn the first period, Lucic gets booed in his hometown when he touches the puck. Canucks fans have a long memory!Eriksson is playing on the Canucks 4th line. Worst bang for your buck ever when you pay a fourth liner $6 million USHorvat has no finish tonight. Not good when your best player is out of the lineup McDavid collides with a referee and it sets up a great scoring chance for the Canucks. Not good. These younger referees in the league seem to have long memories. I’ve never seen McDavid as a yapper, but it seems like he doesn’t get as many calls as he should.Canucks just aren’t the same without Pettersson, especially on the PP. No surprise. I’m surprised bloggers here on Scorum haven’t been blogging about him more.Tough game for Caleb Jones. He coughed up the puck on a Canucks goal, took a dumb penalty and got hammered behind the Canucks net late in the thirdBen Hutton scores, then it gets disallowed on the coach’s Challenge on on offside. Am I the only one who can’t stand this rule? Just keep the challenge for goalie interference!The Oilers haven’t won in Vancouver since April of 2017. Pretty unbelievable for a team with Connor McDavid and more unbelievable considering how many injuries the Canucks had during that time.Tobias Reider got a breakaway and didn’t score. He has 0 goals on the season. Pretty well says it all about the Oilers3 on 3 overtime in this game. The Oilers have McDavid. Remember when I said the Canucks aren’t the same without Pettersson?Draisaitl goes in alone in overtime, Horvat goes in alone in overtime. Neither score. Goalies come up big.Shootout time!Granlund MISSNuge MISS (what a save by Markstrom!)Boeser MISSMcDavid MISS (why did he go in so slow???)Horvat MISS (remember when I said he didn’t have any finish tonight?)Draisaitl MISSRound 4?Leivo MISSKhaira MISS Roussel MISSAm I going to get any sleep tonight?Chaisson SCORESOilers get the bonus point. Elias Pettersson can’t come back soon enough! Good night, everyone!
