Oilers 3, Ducks 1
Edmonton leads series 1-0
“When you look at Hemmer blocking shots and Sergei Samsonov blocking shots, when you've got guys sacrificing who aren't known for doing those things, it's nice to see. It certainly gives the bench a spark when you see guys like that buying in and doing whatever it takes to win hockey games. It's a bit uplifting.”
It was a great road performance for the Oilers, to be sure. And how about Dwayne Roloson's beauty of a flip pass in the first period that resulted in Mike Peca's goal?
What's that you say, Orange-County Register columnist? Roloson cheated?
Will someone tell the Oilers that this is playoff hockey — not basketball?Wow... I think I'll just let the rest of the column speak for itself.
Will someone tell Edmonton goaltender Dwayne Roloson that he needs a lot of work on his Steve Nash impersonation? And that it's called showing off when a goalie gets in the scoring column?
Guess it doesn't matter, because the cheaters — excuse me, the visitors — pulled a fast one on the Mighty Ducks on Friday night enroute to a 3-1 victory in the series opener at The Pond.
