Edmonton – They said the Edmonton oils would be of immense benefit. The Montreal Canadians had a decent routine for a week. Their legs are like cinder blocks, he said.
The Canadians then took only 18 seconds to play. Then they exploded another house at 3:23. At the end of the game, the score read Montreal Canadians 4, regular Wisdom 0.
Can I jump?
The Canadians jumped.
Oilers? They jumped.
“We did not start well. We did not play well. We did not end well,” said head coach Dave Debate – after Tuesday’s Oilers’ 4-0 defeat, a thought bubble flew into the sky above the head of two key points with wings.
But, seriously. How do you know?
Of these bizarre, unpredictable epidemics, 19 out of 20 hockey professionals would have told you not to pray to hit anyone after a week-long layoff due to COVID-19 protocols, skate to prepare Monday evening and one morning.
Then they steamed the Edmonton, in a game that never came close. How does that happen?
“I would be a millionaire if I could answer that question,” said Connor McDowidt, whose players were due to play three games in Montreal last week and finished one before flying home on Tuesday. “One of the longest road trips, I think I’ve come so far. We played three games. Lots of citin without doing anything.”
How does an NHL player feel from a week, as Hobbs experienced?
“Either you feel good or you feel tricky,” McDowid said. “They obviously felt better tonight.”
It was Edmonton’s first disciplinary loss in six games, and they were a setback in the long slide of a fully competitive game. At a table like this, shows like this are inevitable.
“It simply came to our notice then. But it’s a good reset for us. ” “Some things in our game were a foundation for us. We’re going down the road for three games in 10 days, or whatever the hell it is. Not ideal.”
Training in the 2020-21 season is a new experience even for a senior player like Dipat.
“This is not a regular time,” he said. “This is a completely different bird here. A new challenge every day. ”
Very beautiful center
With the shocking sadness of the Montreal Canadians in 1981, you can not talk about the history of the Oilers if you do not start the success of their first National Hockey League series. It was the 14th-ranked Oilers against the 3rd Hopes – and Edmonton were better than five in the opening round in three straight games.
Since then, Canadians have been playing in the old forum, although today a game at the Bell Center remains an experience that every NHL fan should conduct themselves.
“Tons of history,” said Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. “Even training there last week, it’s still a fantastic experience. During these many years (10) in the league, you still enjoy it and take it all in. With the fans, the atmosphere is incredible. Without the fans, it’s still an old, classic building.”
Why did the Oilers enjoy playing there so much for so many years? About this: They usually win, recording an incredible all-time record in Montreal at 43-19-7. Since coming to the Nugent-Hopkins League, the Oilers have been 8-2-1 in Montreal, winning their only game here this season.
“I didn’t know that,” Nugent-Hopkins said of his career mark. “We always have some good games here. Playing in this building is fun – definitely one of the best places to play in the league.”
Debate recalls from the time he was a player, when his Hartford Whales were with Montreal and Boston in the Adams Division, his team played in a mall, while the Bruins and Canadians played in hockey cathedrals.
“You go to the old original six cities and the hockey situation is contagious,” he said. “Players like to play here. They are eager to play here, and many times you’ve got family, and it turns out to be a fun place. ”
Edmonton have long been coming home to change their suitcases – and play Calgary Flames on Friday and Vancouver Canucks on Saturday – before heading back east to play Montreal on Monday, followed by a couple of senators in Ottawa on Wednesday and Friday.
