This is where you ramble on about ‘the dice have no memory’ isn’t it? Yes, usually. Although in this case I was going to lead with “hold on to your ass!” because I do think this game will be wild. If it’s a blowout either way it could get ugly. Oilers in Game 7s has a history, it’s a long and winding road filled with incredible memories along with moments of extreme pain. Is that your good luck photo now? Lame. It’s a photo I took last summer, when I started to have hope for a brand new day in my life. That photo represents hope, or at least it does to me. I think it’s a good photo for a Game ..read more

This is a look at Dylan Holloway’s comps from December of 2022, using Oilers players only. This is a small, early glance, but Holloway’s offense was always the only true worry about him. He’s fast, rambunctious, can get to the places where hockey happens, but the offense was the worry. Last night’s truly outstanding goal, on a night when Corey Perry wasn’t dressed and the Oilers needed gritty effort and pace, Holloway delivered everything asked and then one step beyond. He has three goals in 11 playoff games this spring. He ended the regular season with three goals in six games. Dylan Hollowa ..read more

Bottom line, the entire sport is built around the Stanley Cup. When it comes to romancing a sport, baseball’s poetry and prose has no equal. The one thing that hockey owns is the power of its championship and the trophy given. The history of the game is written in the names that have adorned the Stanley. It’s for all time. It can never be taken away. It rewards all men who reach the peak of the game equally and allows no intruders (sorry, Basil). You have to earn it. That means blood, sweat and tears, gashes and pulled muscles, bruises and broken bones. Winning Stanley is a career achievement ..read more

One thing life experience allows me is a free and clear mind when a team just isn’t good enough to win a hockey/other game. In the middle of last season, the NFL Philadelphia Eagles just stopped winning. They were 10-1-0 on December 1, and went 1-6-0 to finish the season at 11-7-0 (including a miserable playoff loss). The Eagles are trying to transition from the Super Bowl team (they won it all February 24, 2018) to rising contender without falling off the competitive map. Many of the men who played in that Super Bowl game rank as my all-time favourite Eagles: Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, La ..read more

Craig MacTavish was general manager for exactly two NHL drafts, and helped deliver two key pieces to the roster. In 2013, Darnell Nurse was the choice, and he has patrolled an NHL blue line for almost a decade. Leon Draisaitl came along the following year, and the big man exceeded expectations and then kept going. In the life of an NHL roster, it takes a village to reach the top. Oilers coach Kris Knoblauch moved Cody Ceci to the third pairing for Game 4. Are we seeing the final games for Ceci with Edmonton? https://t.co/8GoRzSHTG1 — Lowetide (@Lowetide) May 16, 2024 CREDIT WHERE DUE Ryan ..read more

Evan Bouchard photo by Bruce McCurdy If a hockey goal can be seductive, Evan Bouchard’s late-game winner on Tuesday night was sex on a stick. It was a massive goal and will be responsible for everything that comes after. Bouchard is taking over this series, and in doing so is turning the Glimmer Twins into the hockey world’s best power trio. Call it the McDavid Rush, the McDraiBouch Experience or The Rolling Bone Skates, no matter the name these three men are sensational spring 2024. If you're running on adrenalin and can't sleep, ALL FIVE of these hopeful elements were on display tonight ..read more

The internet and social media changed everything. I am a fan of stories, of lore, but it’s impossible to build such stories when every thought uttered is met with 10,000 hammers of derision. What is happening to our ability to think, to discuss, to interact and reach fresh conclusions together? Years ago, I used some incorrect wording and my family laughed and turned the phrase into a meme. “Don’t be so yell!” I boomed from upstairs to downstairs, and so a family saying was born. I can’t change the world, I know that much. I can use this little corner of the world to insist that we collective ..read more

This 2022 photo of Ziggy perfectly frames the mood of Oilers Nation today. The little doggo was displeased with her employee (me) and found the situation entirely vexing. What did I do that was so bad? I closed the window, because she was barking at passersby and scaring them. Ziggy is 15 pounds of heaven and hell in the NHL, all day, every day. The Oilers lost a game they never really joined last night. The Vancouver Canucks came out like a house on fire, hitting everything in sight. The Oilers looked sleepy by comparison, and along with all of the other roster issues, could not get on top o ..read more

This is Jo-Anne, Mrs. Lowetide, when we first met. I was a goner from go, and she was my North Star. She had all kinds of phrases I’ve used for years on this site, the most famous being “start as you mean to go” and it remains true. She called me on everything, saying things like “just because I’m a clean freak doesn’t mean you can be a slob” and “for a guy who says he’s busy, you don’t do much” with a smile on her face. She had mountains of nicknames for me, nicknames I would never have allowed others to use. Names like “Lummox” or “Stupidious” flattened me in real time. She didn’t have a me ..read more

On a night when losing wasn’t an option, Connor McDavid played 28 minutes, went 1-3-4, drew a penalty, played with reckless abandon, and helped his line outscore the Vancouver Canucks 2-0. Connor McDavid is inevitable. It was one of those games Oilers fans will remember a long time. The Oilers deployment of the defence is changing in real time. Last night offered more evidence. It's official. Kris Knoblauch has a 'super pairing' that plays monster minutes. https://t.co/5IRjXUaGjw — Lowetide (@Lowetide) May 11, 2024 The McDavid line (Draisaitl, Hyman) played a ton five-on-five (18:31) and w ..read more
