for a while.. Taylor Hall scored 60 seconds after the opening faceoff, looking off goalie Jonas Hiller on a two-on-one break before snapping one through his five-hole, to give Edmonton an unexpected lead.. They would go scoreless for the next 59 minutes.. Anaheim tied it moments before the first intermission after a penalty to Mike Brown gave them a faceoff in Edmonton’s end with five seconds left in the period.. Those five seconds were more than enough time as the Ducks tied it on Cam Fowler’s goal at 19:58.. Another late goal by Kyle Palmieri at 19:03 of the second period gave the Ducks a 2-1 lead at the second intermission.. Corey Perry made it 3-1 midway through the third.. In an interesting scheduling quirk, the Oilers and Ducks will stay in Edmonton play each other again Monday night.. NOTES: Teemu Selanne played his 900th game with the Anaheim Ducks.. …. Anaheim is 13-2-0 in its last 15 games against Edmonton. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/oilers-eliminated-playoff-contention-loss-040030921–nhl.html

Theo Peckham and the Edmonton Oilers

Theo Peckham and the Edmonton Oilers

While Edmonton did happen to lose all four of those outings, you would be hard-pressed to blame that on him.. He was a very respectable -1 during his brief stint in the lineup, played between 16-18 minutes a night and brought a physical element to the backend, which is basically non-existent, should Mark Fistric find himself in the press box.. To be completely honest, Peckham looked far more composed with the puck on his stick, than he had at any point during the 2011-2012 campaign.. Making is exile all the more perplexing.. Krueger told a media scrum last week that the plan all along, was to only use Peckham if they were to run into injury trouble on the blueline.. They felt their current rotation of seven was pretty darn solid.. Not sure if Ralph and his coaching staff have been paying attention but that rotation, is one of the worst groups in the entire National Hockey League.. The continual flipping of Fistric, Corey Potter and Ryan Whitney has become almost comical and produced nothing but shotty performance from all three, during the Oilers most recent struggles.. At this point, you almost have to wonder if they would have run with five defenceman, had that injury bug hit.. In the organization’s defence, this is not the first time that conditioning has been an issue, when it comes to the hard-hitting rearguard.. Perhaps they have grown tired of his act and no longer see him as part of the equation. source: http://www.ourhometown.ca/windsor/sports/RS0636.php

Slumping Edmonton Oilers eliminated from playoff contention with loss to Ducks

“It’s great to have a win again after what has been happening for the last little while,” said Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller, who stopped 27 shots for the win.. “We knew that we needed to play better, but sometimes it is not that easy.. Tonight I think that everybody worked a little harder and that made the difference.” The Oilers had a quick start to the game, scoring exactly one minute in.. Hall notched his 15th of the year as he came in off the boards to beat Hiller between the legs with a wrist shot from the right face-off dot.. The Ducks evened it up with just 1.1 seconds remaining in the opening period as Oiler centre Jerred Smithson broke his stick on the faceoff and Fowler was able to pick up a rebound and bank in his first of the year off of Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk’s pads.. Anaheim took a 2-1 lead with just under a minute to play in the second period as Palmieri tried to get a pass through to Teemu Selanne on a two-on-one, but the pass was blocked by a diving Ladislav Smid.. However, Palmieri was able to dig the puck from under Smid and deposit his 10th of the year behind Dubnyk.. The Ducks went up 3-1 midway through the third when Getzlaf made a great move to walk around Smid and then sent a backhand pass in front for Perry, who had an easy tap-in for the goal.. The Ducks hit the post twice with Dubnyk pulled for the final two minutes.. Notes: It was the second of three meetings between the two teams this season.. Anaheim came in to the game as the winners of their last nine in Edmonton and 12 of the last 14 meetings overall. source: http://news.yahoo.com/slumping-edmonton-oilers-eliminated-playoff-contention-loss-ducks-043039438–spt.html
