Don't BS Me. Do We Really Have A Game On Tonight?

What seems like an eternity, game day is finally here. Oilers vs Wild tonight in Minnesota.

There is a couple of stories today for the Oilers that makes this game interesting.

- The obvious. 2nd game of the season. The Oil haven't played since Sunday, and with the shootout win over the Pens, the fans want more. It just took to damn long to get to today.

- Sure does sound like Linus Omark won't play tonight. He's being benched for playing with little fire in the opener. Some say Renney is also pissed off with his shootout attempt.

- Lennart Petrell makes his NHL and Oilers debut tonight. In sure he's buzzing this morning and he's ready to go. He's good defensively and apparently a stud on the penalty kill. I'm interested to see him in action.

- Darcy Hordichuk and his :59 of playing time is in the lineup. WTF? If that's all he's going to play, I'd rather have Omark on the 4th line. Wasn't signing Hordichuk was because he can play 7 minutes a night? Play Hordichuk, or the press box. Pick one Renney.

A Kids 1st NHL Game (Oilers vs Flames)

A friend from work asked me if it was possible to find 2 tickets for tonights game so he could take his 9 year old son to his 1st ever NHL game. I remember mine clearly (in Vancouver vs the classic Gretzky Oilers) so I thought what the hell. I can find him some. Sure enough, Marsha (Scarlett) Boyd gave some up so they could go. Such a nice thing she did. I'm sending her good karma for it. She deserves it.

I hope Joe and his son really take in everything that tonight has to offer. I told him to show up early so they could see the warm ups and grab some shirts and sub par food from Rexall. I told him to even grab one of those heroin beers.

So here's to hoping the Oilers at least put up a fight with the southern rivals. Make this game fun to watch for them. I'll let you know how they made out tomorrow. GOILERS!!!

Big Weekend for the Barons

Tonight is the beginning of a huge weekend for the Barons off and on the ice. They've been putting the full court press in the local radio and tv stations. Commercials are playing at least two or more times in a 5 minute period on local TV. And for the second time this week, that Barons' defencemen Jake Taylor and John Allgood from the front office will be making the rounds on local radio to drum up some support. To get fans to come down to the 3 game home stand this weekend.

As mentioned by Ryan Aber of on Twitter last night, that newcomer Bryan Helmer is likely to be signed to a PTO contract to start out on. Martin Gerber should be in goal tonight for the Barons, and Jeff Deslauriers could see some action after returning from playing in the Spengler Cup the week before last. Tonight's game starts at 7:05PM, and tomorrow's game starts at 6:05PM due to the Thunder playing across the street. And Sunday's game against Lake Erie will start at 5:05PM, with the last post-game skate with the team.

Some GameDay Notes for the Weekend.

This is the first time that the Peoria Rivermen have come to Oklahoma City. And they're going to be looking for a little revenge, as the last time these two teams played in Peoria. The Barons won a 3-1 decision in their only meeting so far this season, and was on the last game on their first extended road trip as a team. So far in the last six game that Peoria has played, they've only won 3 games. But those 3 wins have come after a 3 game skid, and that includes knocking off division leading San Antonio the other night with a 7-4 win. A player that could be a factor for the Rivermen this weekend is Derek Nesbitt, and he seems to be a on a hot streak scoring 4 goals in their last game against the rampage.

Stockton Thunder Prepare For A Battle / Game Preview / #StkThunder

So, the last time both teams met, this happened.

At the tail-end of a 4-0 Thunder walloping of Bakersfield on Nov. 7, the results featured 95 penalty minutes, 27 penalties in total dished out. 17 of them were “emotion” penalties (roughing, fighting, leaving the crease, secondary altercation, misconducts, etc). It’s pretty evident that emotions will be running high. Jim McKenzie confirmed it this morning in a conversation we had, and Matt Thomas is hoping the Thunder will match it throughout the game.

The Thunder are in first place at 11-4-4 (26 points), Bakersfield is nine points behind. The Thunder outscored Bakersfield, 15-2, in the three-game series in November, but the score might be closer than you think tonight.

The Thunder have found their stride again with Bryan Pitton carrying the mail (7-0-1 this year with a 2.26 GAA) and the offense combining for 13 goals in the three-game sweet at Victoria last week. But, we’ll see several gifted and credentialed players inserted into the Condors lineup this evening, for the first time in the series.

They are: Kyle Calder (yes, THE Kyle Calder), recent assigned prospects Kyle Broda and Pete Zingoni, former Springfield Falcon Slava Trukhno, former Manchester Monarch Joe Rullier, and fresh-off-the-I.R.J.D. Corbin and Bobby Robins.

With Jesse Gimblett up in the AHL, that creates a spot for Thomas to dress seven defensemen. He’ll do that, and Trevor Hunt will serve primarily as an extra forward and also create options for penalty killers with fresh legs at the ready, in case that need arises.

Here’s how the lineups are looking for tonight:

McKenzie – Lawrence – Watson
Clarke – Bureau – Cameron
G. Hunt – Arcobello – Clair
T. Hunt

Aiello – Vanoosten
Ringwald – Brodie
Constant – Marcoux

Come gather as well at Fat’s Grill to watch the game.

Springfield Falcons Travel To Wilkes-Barre Thursday

March 18, 2010 - The Springfield Falcons continue their six-game road trip this weekend as they get set for three games in three days starting on Friday night in Wilkes-Barre, PA at 7:05 pm. The Falcons will practice Thursday morning in Springfield before jumping on the bus to Wilkes-Barre as they get set to meet the Penguins for the second and final time this year. Springfield beat the Penguins on home ice back on January 17 by a score of 6-3. Chad Wiseman led the Falcons offense on that night collecting four goals and two assists in the win. Wiseman tied a Falcons' record in that game for most goals in a game.

The Falcons have not traveled to Wilkes-Barre since the 2007-08 campaign when Springfield dropped a 6-1 decision on April 4, 2008. Springfield has played 13 games against Wilkes-Barre in their franchise history with the Falcons holding a 7-4-2 advantage.

The Falcons continue their road trip having won their last three road games, all one goal games and two that went into overtime. Springfield started their recent hot stretch on the road back on February 26 in Hartford when they rallied in the third period to tie the score and Rob Hisey won the contest in overtime. On February 27 in Syracuse, Chad Wiseman's goal with just seconds remaining in regulation gave the Falcons a 2-1 win, followed by Springfield's most recent road victory this past Sunday when they scored two third period goals to even the score and finally won the contest in a shootout.

Wilkes-Barre has also been playing very well recently as they battle for one of the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. The Penguins currently sit in fourth place in the East Division with a record of 34-29-2-3 good for 73 points. The top four teams in both the Atlantic Division and East Division make the Calder Cup Playoffs, unless the fifth place team in the Atlantic has a better record than the fourth place team in the East Division. Currently, the fifth place team in the Atlantic is the Bridgeport Sound Tigers with 73 points, tied with the fourth place Penguins in the East.


The Springfield Falcons have won five of their last seven games, including three straight road games. The Falcons concluded this past weekend with back-to-back 5-4 shootout victories against the AHL’s leading Hershey Bears on Saturday and at Portland on Sunday.

The Falcons have played 20 games this year that have gone to overtime and they have nine wins, eight overtime losses and three shootout losses in that span. The Falcons are 5-8 in ot games and 4-3 in shootout games.

Rob Hisey scored the game-winner in the sixth round of the shootout on Saturday night and followed that up with a “Gordie Howe Hat Trick” on Sunday scoring two goals, collecting one assist and adding a first-period fighting major.

Goaltender J.P. Levasseur was outstanding in the shootout this weekend stopping all six Hershey shooters on Saturday, followed by turning aside all five Portland shooters on Sunday.

Chad Wiseman collected two goals and two assists in his last two games including being named the game’s first star on Saturday with two goals and one assist against Hershey.

Dean Arsene scored his first goal of the year on Saturday against Hershey being named the game’s third star.

Chris Armstrong extended his scoring streak to 10 games with a goal on Sunday in Portland. Armstrong has two goals and nine assists in that span.
