Top Story: Edmonton has pushed into 9th place in a tie with Dallas, hot on the heals of St. Louis. Calgary is sinking and the fans are left to defend Jay Feaster and write the same hypothetical quick turnaround stories Oilers' bloggers wrote for so long.
The Oilers are saying:
"These games, especially between Edmonton and Calgary, have a special dynamic to them that players will be missing or players won't be missing and it seems to all be gone, and they're one-goal games. We're expecting one-goal games here against Calgary, we're expecting real hard battles."
--Ralph Krueger, on the home and home against Calgary.
Get on the Flames and bury them early. The way Calgary is playing combined with the weak goaltending - these are games the Oilers should not just win, but dominate.
The Opponent is saying:
"We gave them too many tap-ins. We're not giving up huge scoring chances numbers-wise, but the quality ... guys in this league are going to score every time on chances like that."
Sure, Calgary beat Columbus in total scoring chances, 19-15, but it's not like Calgary was playing a buttoned up style. Columbus had it's way with the Calgary defense.
Key matchup: Taylor Hall versus the Flames.
