I’m interested to see how the Stars will defend McJesus and his disciples.

The Oilers sure played that turnover like they thought the whistle had blown.

And Bishop gives it right back.... *poo poo*

After enough unforced Benn turnovers, eventually the Oilers will make you pay. I'm surprised it took until the last minute of the period.

He definitely had a couple Kari goals today in terms of being a total momentum killer.

If I were a head coach I'd pull my goalies super quick. You can usually just tell when they're off and fighting it. I'd let one goal in with them like that then they'd be out.

He's having a *normal* season. We were just spoiled last year by one of the greatest single-season goaltending performances in franchise history. His GAA going into today's game is 2.12 and his sv% is the same as last year. He's still good, he's just not stealing games like he did last year.

Same. I knew he was off when the first one went in.

I know his stats are still up there with the leaders, but I’m more going with the number of Kari goals he’s had.

I'm still wondering if the Oilers will be able to keep that tempo all through this season or if they will crumble down in the classical Oilers fashion. No depth, average defense and goaltending. They may be sufficiently ahead to go in the playoffs, but I don't see them going past the first round. It's not the 90's anymore where two or three guys could carry a whole team on their shoulders.

Speaking about the 90's, a solution would be to send a random fourth liner to unfortunately chainsaw McDavid's ankles, just sayin'.

It's a Tippett team. They will crumble in the playoffs.

The 3rd period Tippett Turtle strategy actually worked in our favor today.

A good swing through Western Canada always cures this team's ills.

We should start the season in Western Canada.

I got home from kids events and only saw the last 20...err 22 minutes.

I would've been shocked if you told me the best scorers in the NHL played on Edmonton from that window. Edmonton played like dick.

Knowing how snake-bit he was and how wide open he was I was already imaging how he was going to *f-bomb* that up.

But he didn't.

Amazing defensive coach though.

Not just any team can hold the Dallas Stars to 5 goals on home ice.

The Oilers were great thru two periods. Stars played well, worked hard, but the Oil were in control and took over the game. Even after Bishop was replaced, Khudobin was barraged with shots. Their 4th goal came after they kept the Stars in forever. But the 3rd period was all Dallas. I was shocked to get a point, but 2 on a Jamie Benn OT goal. Best win of the season.
