Second Time is the Charm: Coyotes @ Oilers

dev_7131_std

First of all, shout out to the Ducks for beating the Sharks last night. Because of that, the Oilers are still leading the PAC-7, so a win today would solidify that lead even more. After what should have been a quick 2 points on Friday that turned into a shootout loss, the Oil get another chance at the Yotes this afternoon at the Iron Jungle. I’m still not over the fact that Connor’s goal was .01 second too late. Literally as he was celebrating I knew it wasn’t going to count because of course it wouldn’t. It is the Oilers after all. Edmonton didn’t play a great game on Friday, but still managed a point, because that’s how stinky Arizona is.

Let’s hope they’re ready to go to, because they definitely need a better effort today than we saw on Friday.

Lineup

Today’s Opponent

The Phoenix Arizona Coyotes

Why they Stink

Sure Arizona has had some decent clubs since 2010/2011. But it’s still completely absurd that the Oilers haven’t been able to win ONE game in regulation. Not even one time. I don’t understand how that’s possible. I’m so sick of losing to these fucking guys. Whether it’s Keith Yandle making Jeff Petry look like a goddamn pylon:


Or whether it’s the Oilers not being able to win in front of approximately 300 people in the crowd in Arizona, they just can’t seem to get it done. No matter the circumstances, they have found a way to lose. Dave Tippett is a wizard when it comes to beating the Oilers. Who even plays for the Yotes anyways? Enough is enough. Time for 2 points.

Why Their Fans Stink

Trick question. They don’t have any.

Which Coyote Stinks

Mike Smith. This entire section is devoted to the fact that he decided it would be a good idea to chirp McDavid after his missed shootout attempt on Friday night. Hey Mike, who do you think you are bro? You’re a bum. You’re a whiner and you’re a diver:

You have no business saying anything to Connor after the way he made you look like a cardboard cutout 1:30 in the game:

Take a lap buddy. We’ll see who’s laughing when Connor hangs 5 on you today.

Why They Might Not Stink

Max Domi has played in the league for just over a season and he already has like 30 goals against us. Oliver Ekman-Larson will probably score a goal too because that’s a thing that always happens when he plays Edmonton.

The Roundup

Edmonton needs this win. If they want to be in the thick of things all year, these are the teams they need to beat. Arizona today, Toronto on Tuesday. The Oilers steak of futility against the Yotes can no longer exist. The Oilers are a better team than the Coyotes now. It’s as simple as that. If they play a better game this afternoon then they did on Friday, which I think they will, then this a win.

Prediction

Mike Smith awoke the beast. Connor puts on yet another show, setting up JP for a beauty early on in this one. The first line keeps it going all day and they combine for three more. Big Rig adds one because of course. He also will beat the hell out of Connor Murphy. That guy sucks.

Oilers win 6-1.

Oil Bro
