Acquiring Luongo never made a lick of sense to anyone in these parts, until, of course, the Edmonton Oilers played their home opener. After 20 minutes of play the San Jose Sharks led 6-1, Devan Dubnyk had been thoroughly ventilated by Joe Thornton and his mates, and as the good citizens of Edmonton ate their cheap hamburgers and discounted beer, you could almost hear the intermission banter.

Calgary Flames vs. Canucks: Can’t whine about a win!

Love ‘ Em & Hate ‘Em Boxscore | Recap The shootout is a fickle beast. The glorified coin toss can be so random yet determines whether the 65 minutes prior was an effort good enough for a win or bad enough for a loss. For the second straight game, the Canucks blew a 2-0 lead to an Albertan team and decided the game in a shootout. On Sunday, the Oilers “won” and panic...
