It Was Fun While It Lasted
Sunday's game against the Sharks was notable in that it was the first Oilers victory since November 9th. I'm not suggesting it will be another month before the Oilers are able to win again, but....well, maybe I am suggesting this. The Oilers dropped their latest effort by a 5-2 score in San Jose. San Jose got on the board with two goals in the first six minutes. Oilers responded six minutes later with goal from Jordan Eberle and David Perron, but San Jose sewed this one with two more goals in the second and one in the third.
The Oilers are in Anaheim for their third game in four nights.
The Oilers are saying
"We're getting enough chances to score three goals, and it's a 3-2 league...If you're going to continue to score two, it's not going to go well for you. Our guys are getting their chances, but we've got to start putting them in the net now. We've got to put ourselves in a better spot to score the goals"
That's Oilers coach Dallas Eakins on why scoring three goals is better than two.
THIS JUST IN: GOALS ARE GOOD
Oilers are last in the Western Conference in the standings, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that they're also last in goals scored in the West as well. They've scored just 62 goals in 28 games, which averages out to about 2.2 goals per game. That's not a lot of clams, you guys.
The Opponent is saying
"It was just a sprained knee...It just takes a little time for everything to heal up. Hopefully it's not too long and it's quicker than what I expect"
That's Ducks forward Corey Perry. Perry will be out of the lineup for three to four weeks with a sprained knee which he sustained on Friday versus the Wild.
Everybody is injured on the Ducks. How do you have two goalies injured at once?
Have some of this
