Oilers shine in wide-open game, but don’t get win (player grades, Columbus 3, Oilers, 2) – Cult of Hockey

Patrick O’Sullivan, [player grade:] 6. He is the Roberto Duran of the Oilers. If you don’t understand the reference, search “Manos de Piedra” in Google.

It’s not a compliment for a hockey goal scorer.

I’m starting to think that O’Sullivan’s low shooting percentage over his career isn’t a fluke, isn’t just bad luck. Yet in the shootout, he often drains them, doesn’t he?

On the plus side, he was a contributor on a handful of good scoring chances at even strength, and it’s also satisfying not to have to watch him as the powerplay pointman. He was never suited to that job.
