Controversial decision cost Oilers Game 1

Controversial decision cost Oilers Game 1

I’ve said it several times, both in audio and in writing: I have a hard time betting against the power of the Avalanche. And I will have until the end of the series.

Until proven otherwise, 2022 is the year of MacKinnon, Makar, and Avalanche. I want (and see) a new Stanley Cup champion in my crystal ball on my freshly cleaned computer screen.

Yesterday, those who bet against the Avalanche lost a few dollars. And they’re probably in a bad mood this morning. Short night, controversy with the referees, and the defeat of the Oilers…

What do you remember from this first match? with the aim, let us remember, of crowning the recipient of the Clarence-Campbell trophy…. Who will succeed the Montreal Canadians? #WesternChampions

1. He scored 14 goals in the game, an 8-6 win for the Avalanche. He is just one less than he was in the first game between the Flames and the Oilers. However, the Oilers won all four of their games following a 9-6 loss to the Flames. Will they be able to do the same against the Avs?

two. Cale Makar (2 goals and 1 assist), Connor McDavid (1 goal and 2 assists), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (1 goal and 1 assist), Evander Kane (1 goal and 1 assist), Leon Draisaitl (2 assists), Devon Toews (2 assists), Mikko Rantanen (1 goal and 1 assist), Gabriel Landeskog (1 goal and 1 assist), JT Compher (2 goals) and Nathan MacKinnon (1 goal and 1 assist) all had more than one point.

Only Valeri Nichushkin and Darren Helm haven’t earned a single point among the Avalanche’s 12 forwards.

3. how not to come back to THE controversy of the night? Although it was 2 to 2 at the end of the first maker entered the opposite zone before Nichushkin came out, before scoring his first goal of the match.

Jay Woodcroft has challenged the decision… but lost. The NHL’s explanation: Makar didn’t touch the puck before Nichushkin came out of the Oilers’ zone. Therefore, there is no offside… and therefore there is a goal.

okay, I understand the reason for this decision… but doesn’t Makar have control of the puck even if he doesn’t touch it? Everyone would have understood if the referees had disallowed the goal… but there, the NHL is seen once again disputed from all sides. Especially since the match was probably played there…

Rather than return to a 2-2 tie, the Oilers were trailing 23then allowed a fourth goal on the power play obtained after the coach challenged Lost by Jay Woodcroft.

Did the country of each of the two teams have a role to play in all of this? I dare to believe not. #Canada, United States of America

Four. Cale Makar is single too hard, as controversial as his first goal was last night.

5. We had every right to expect an offensive series during which the goalies would not be in the spotlight… but who could have predicted that Game #1 would end with both backup goalies (already) in front of the net? Mike Smith was substituted for Mikko Koskinen in the 27th minute, while Darcy Kuemper (injured upper body) gave way to Pavel Francouz a minute later. Koskinen (.952, goal at 32:07) was the best of the four goalkeepers last night.

6. If Darcy Kuemper is badly injured and has to miss a few games, can the Avalanche counter-attack from McDavid, Kane, Draisaitl, and the Oilers? To say that the Avalanche and Blackhawks discussed Marc-André Fleury before the deadline…

7. The Canadian would not have been level last night. I would have eaten a solid rinse/volley, going through a reputable lesson.

8. Artturi Lehkonen had an assist in the victory. Will he be able to score a goal as important as last year (June 24 at the Bell Center against Las Vegas)? Whatever… it seems to be spinning perfect happiness and I like that.

9. The Avalanche heated up late in the game. With Denver leading 7-3, the Oilers scored three unanswered goals late in the game. second and in third. The empty goal by Gabriel Landeskog (whom I watched with one eye while fighting Morpheus) came, however, to confirm the victory of the Avalanche.

10 The team that wants to win this series will surely have to close the game and strengthen their defense.

eleven Only two of the 14 goals have entered power play One goal per team…

12 Lucky there is no cannon in the arena. Oh…

13 Evander Kane scored his 13th goal in as many playoff games…and his agent Dan Milstein knows his client could hit the jackpot. in the casino in the NHL next summer. Even with his past and his reputation?

This series between the Oilers and the Avalanche continues tomorrow in Colorado. Where do I sign to ensure I get Game 7 of this series?

Tonight we will be entitled to the first game between the Lightning (rested) and the Rangers (who just won a #7 game) in New York. Who will win match #1?

We have the right to expect a meeting much less open/offensive than last night The two goalkeepers in action are or will be winners of the Vézina Trophy.

A lot of

– We can understand that.

– Real.

“It’s hard to argue with them about that. Especially if these hockey players have not suffered any consequences as a result of their actions.

– Almost all the Canadians and The Finns watched the final of the world championships.
