PENS WIN OVER THE OILERS IN THE (STUPID) SHOOTOUT! THE PENS OUTPLAYED THE OILERS IN THE FIRST PERIOD, BUT AFTER THAT IT WAS ALL OILERS AND FLOWER MADE SOME GREAT SAVES! NOT SAYING THE PENS DIDN’T HAVE THEIR CHANCES TOO, BUT THEY DIDN’T PLAY AS WELL IN THE FINAL TWO PERIODS! RUH TOOK A PENALTY IN THE 3RD THAT LEAD TO THE OILERS TYING GOAL…THE PENS HAD A CHANCE IN OT ON THE POWERPLAY, BUT COULDN’T SCORE! ALSO THE PENS WON 11 FACE-OFFS IN THE ONE ON 45 DRAWS (ELEVEN WTF??) – THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED THEIR FACE-OFFS HAVE BEEN TERRIBLE ALL SEASON, BUT THAT’S HORRIBLE! THEN EVENTUALLY IT WENT INTO THE (STUPID) SHOOTOUT – SERIOUSLY THEY NEED TO JUST EXTEND OVERTIME! SID AND PHIL SCORED AND THE PENS WON!
Final: Pens 3 Oilers 2 SO
Goals: Nick Bonino & Evgeni Malkin
Shootout Goals: Sidney Crosby & Phil Kessel
BONES AND GENO PICKED UP RIGHT WHERE THEY LEFT OFF IN THE GAME AGAINST THE JETS SCORING EARLY IN THE FIRST PERIOD! GENO IS NOW AHEAD OF SID IN POINTS WITH 71…STILL TIED FOR 2ND IN THE LEAGUE! SCHULTZY GOT AN ASSIST IN HIS RETURN GAME TO EDMONTON! NEXT GAME IS TOMORROW NIGHT IN VANCOUVER!
A small interview with Nikolai Khabibulin, net minder for the Edmonton Oilers disucssing about his recent success . . but knowing him he really won’t want to basket in all that glory, Which is good becuase the success won’t get to his head and keep focus on playing hockey. When he leads the Oilers into a Stanley Cup win THEN he can basket in the glory all summer long.
PS: no more Khabibulin jail jokes about his 5 hole being wider this year. ((hahaha but it was funny @ 1st))
