Stanley Cup Game Seven – Go Oilers Go!

19th June 2006

Game seven of the Stanley Cup playoffs starts in half an hour. For the record, I predict an Edmonton 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. The momentum is certainly with the Oilers after the last two wins, and even though Carolina has the home rink advantage tonight, I believe the Oilers will be hoisting Lord Stanley by 9:00pm tonight!

If you’re not an Edmontonian, it is probably hard to appreciate the loyalty and support the fans have in Edmonton for the Oilers (though I imagine it parallels the fan loyalty that surrounds the FIFA World Cup).

I grew up during the first Edmonton hockey dynasty and its great to be watching these games with my kids. Right now we are watching the pre-game show — all decked out with Oiler tattoos, shirts, and flags, of course!

Go Oilers Go!

    I’m so sad! I really thought they were going to win this game with all of the momentum they had coming into game seven.

    They just seemed to not have enough jump in their step for the entire 60 minutes and they missed out on a handful of great scoring opportunities.

    All I can say now is 3.5 months and counting until next season.

    Sorry, Tyler. I was pulling for the Oilers last night. Still, a great third period, I would say…
