Crosby takes the goal scoring lead… despite missing the first six games.

He'll cool off I'm sure but man… what a run he's on. Points in 26 of his last 27 regular season games. 19/20.

He's still well back in points.

How did you like that game vs the CBJ?:beer:

Seemed like a pretty cruel joke. That was one of the worst games I've ever seen that I wasn't trying to play in.

 Ah well, last year the Penguins would have slaughtered the Oilers.  One unlucky play in the dying minutes and at least they would have scraped out a point.

The Oilers are a better team this year.

The Pens' "Conor" beat the Oilers "Connor." (not in point total though, but in goals… :-D)

    Last year the Oilers didn't have 9 wins until December.  As long as Calgary sucks, that's the most important thing. 

On a side note, I barely noticed Justin Schultz tonight.  That's an improvement, as well.

You guys didn't use him well. He's been pretty darn good.

  Schultz was set up to fail from day one.  No sheltered minutes, no true veterans showing him the proper way to play really messed with his confidence and ability to play his game.  

    I'm glad he's in a better position to learn and succeed with the Pens.  

  Plus, he's got his name on the Cup now, too.

Been a pretty crappy month and now Galchenyuk and Desharnais are both out for 6-8 weeks. Hoping this isn't the start of another December swoon.

The injury bug has been an issue for my Oilers, as well.  Especially on the blue line.  They lost an absolute stinker to the Flyers tonight.   I haven't watched any Habs games this year, how's Jeff Petry making out so far?

Honestly, where I'm at, I only get to see games very occasionally. I can't say that I've really been able to watch enough to have formed my own opinion on a second-pair defenseman.. 

Petry's at 9 points and and a +4 in 26 games. So it sounds like he's filling a role. On the other hand, Carey apparently had to defend himself last night after New Jersey's Palmieri ran him and took four minutes in the process. That's a role that the best player on the ice ought to have other guys fill and Petry was on the ice for that one.

How about that Metro division this year, eh? 15-7-3 gets you… wait for it… fifth place right now.

Yikes!

The loser's point, aka OTL, really makes it hard to look at standings. That said, the Met is pretty tough this year. CBJ isn't a soft touch anymore. It's a little surprising to see the Islanders are in the cellar. Also solid win streaks by the Penguins, Rangers and Jackets going as we type.

Anybody just see the Cody Eakin hit on Lundqvist? Brutal. Worse than Lucic on Miller. What concerns me is that none of the other Rangers jumped Eakin. Maybe in the rematch between the teams?

Jumping him isn't going to do anything except to penalize the team that was harmed.

I wonder how long that suspension will be.

True, but I mean, if your world class goalie gets laid out on a dirty hit, you'd think that somebody at least jumps in. Guess they chose to make Dallas pay on the scoreboard instead.

I'd give him 3-5 games; don't believe he has a history.

What concerns me is the amount of people on social media ranting about how he deserved to get hit for playing the puck that long or for being out of his crease or blah blah blah old school hockey.

There's this thing called a rulebook, I wish they would read it sometime.

I agree. But at the same time a goalie playing the puck and lingering long enough to cause obstruction isn't cool either.

Not what happened here per se. But goalies take advantage all the time.
