Kunitz scored on the Big Mac Attack, so some Student Rushers will get pizza and a burger.

Defense has not helped Fleury tonight.

Too much room for Eberle on pretty much every shift.

I'm assuming the return to the "Curly Shuffle" defense is not Jacques doing.

Safe to say Malkin won't be one of the three stars tonight.

He's had an awful start to this season.

Does Orpik even try to play defense anymore?

Time for another line to get some production apart from Sids....


Malkins line is suffering without Neal.


How about Sutter get going and put one in!

New linemates doesn't help. Malkin always missed Neal when he's out.

Fleury's crease looks like a mosh pit, while guys like Eberle have an expanse of tundra to work with.

Great take by Sid before the goal. Just used to seeing him do stuff like that.

Sloppy, sloppy period otherwise. All Oilers, except for one or two shifts. Pens offense obviously misses Neal, BB, and 58.

Steiggy and Bob are in good/bad form tonight.

That should have been a major. Shouldn't define length by injury

"Kunitz serves it up so Brown can touch it."

That was a very charitable explanation.

I can only speak for myself and a few other posters that I've spoken with, but the lack of interest in GDTs is because 90% of the posts are about officiating. We know, you could do better and after seeing a bird's eye view ten times in slo-mo that you could have made the call and the refs are biased against Pittsburgh and all that...but really, the GDT rarely has any worthwhile discussion anymore it seems, nothing about the game, just kvetching.

Sometimes it's necessary to complain about the job our forecheck is doing, sometimes it's necessary to complain about a bad line change, sometimes it's necessary to complain about a goal that we gave up, or even officiating...but when all it ever is is just whining and whining and whining...people just don't want to do deal with it.

I'll take the tie going in the third considering Edmonton has been skating circles around us.

90% of the posts certainly are not about officiating. That is absolutely absurd to say that.

The last three games have been horrible in defensive play after a great start where I'm pretty sure there was no whining.

Definitely agree with this. All the negative ref stuff gets old quickly.
