Oops yep. I was so excited about the oilers being an actual hockey team that I mixed them up.

Holy...I just noticed that last night Tyson Barrie - TYSON BARRIE - quietly moved into a tie with Klingberg for points by a defensemen this season (27). #norris :lol

I guess another example of how not rushing to pull the trade trigger actually worked out for Sakic.

Seriously had no idea he had that many points.

Not to rub it in, but MacKinnon's dangle on Crosby to set up the ENG was such a simple thing of beauty:

Barrie's MO is to set up just inside the blue line, right in the middle of the ice. He's got a rocket shot that always leads to deflection goals. 23 of his 27 points are assists, and I'd be interested to see how many of those assists are to goals that were tipped, went off someone's skate, etc.

His defensive deficiencies are still troubling (although he's made strides this year), but I think playing with better defensively-steady partners (mostly Nemeth) have helped him feel like he can get back to his offensive ways.

I wish more young blue liners would realize this. Feel like a lot of them feel the need to dangle or get around the dots.

There is nothing wrong with taking "bad" shots with the mentality of a redirect.

Matty - speaking of defensemen on our own teams...There was a thread on Reddit talking about the most dominating performance in the playoffs by an individual and a LOT of talk about my boy Duncs in 2015. I don't know if you've seen this video, but the video is pure hockey sexiness:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJRLLhsClJw

I mean, man oh man was that run amazing. I can't think of a recent example (maybe Thomas in 2011 or Malkin in 2009) of a player just absolutely dominating like that. Even more so a defenseman.

Rangers are playing some solid hockey as of late. I finally got to sit and watch a game on TV last night. Enjoyed the watch.

Dustin plays his 1,000th NHL game tonight.

30th player in the NHL to achieve the milestone while only playing on one team. I'm very proud of him.

Yeah, saw that - quite an achievement. Could be a night for a few milestones. If Dallas beats the Hawks Hitchcock will record his 800th win as head coach and at the same time if Kane puts one in the back of the net he wil enter the 300 goal club.

Sarah, if you talk to Dustin or see him over the holidays, tell him the NHL thread send their regards and congratulate him on 1,000 games.

Avs announcers are raving about him right now. Talking about his attitude, handling losing the C, etc. nothing but good.

Awesome to hear. Iím disappointed I canít be there and more disappointed I canít be there the 28th when they honor him.

If anyone is gonna score the gwg in OT against the Avs, may as well be Dustin in game 1,000

Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents about Dustin Brown. Always loved watching him play even in the limited west coast games we get here in Pittsburgh. Great for hockey and a Kings legend.

Happy Holidays NHL thread.

Iíll make an effort to be around more in the new year and during the playoff push (even though a lot of ppl in here wonít like that lol)

Yeah, they dug themselves quite a hole early this year. Time to start digging up! Talbot is the only reason they won last night, but we need him to have those types of games if they have any hope of making the dance.

Yeah having Talbot both back from injury and seemingly back to form has been a huge part.
I donít know how a team with so much fire power has so much trouble scoring.so many chances and posts last night, should have been an 80ís oilers team on the scoresheet.

Yeah, he is a stand up player and will likely be under-rated statistically speaking. His contributions to LA have been amazing for that team, I was pretty stunned when they stripped him of the C.

I think the best stat for Brown is 1,000 games and heís only ever missed 15 games. Thatís incredible for the style of play he plays every night.

Coach said it best last night, poetic justice for Dustin.
