Wild @ Oilers - 3-24-08 - View from the Recliner
Gettin into this one waaaay late apparently. I thought the DVR was recording, but it's not so I missed the first 7 minutes of the game. I missed alot - Wild are down 3-1. What the hizzy did I miss? Apparently their obnoxious goal siren 3 times. Apparently Backstrom = no good. Usually when this happens I get pretty disinterested.
Harding tosses the puck right to an Oiler and now it's 4-1...time to do something else before I'm too depressed.
Hey, Sean Hill scores...and now it's 4-2.
Oh, now it's 5-2. What a bunk game. The D seems to be chasing again...like they did when we went on that ugly losing streak.
Terharr thought it was 5-3, but false alarm.
Now it is 5-3 with 12 minutes to go.
And we're spent. Oil 5 Wild 3 final.
I didn't pay close enough attention to do this game justice. I will defer to my fellow bloggers tonite. I look forward to reading how Eric Belanger looked.
Fight to hang the 1st Banner
Colorado beat Calgary tonite, so the Flames stay 1 pt back and the Avs and Canucks are now 3 pts back. Wild has 5 games left, Calgary 6, and Canucks 7.
Edmonton is now 3 pts out of the playoffs with 5 games left. Craziness ensues.
Next on the Docket - Oilers @ Wild - Wed 3-25-08
I fully expect the Wild to right the ship Wednesday. They got run by a fired up Oilers team with the home crowd behind them. Hey, here's somethin different? How about if the crowd at the X is loud from the start? Let's try that... Wild 4 Oil 2
