Sam Bennett scored midway through the first period for the Calgary to give the Flames a 1-0 lead. Calgary held onto this lead for a significant part of the game, until Mark Fayne (!) knotted it up for Edmonton midway through the third on a weird wrister. The Oilers carried the tie through overtime and onto the shootout, where none other than Teddy Purcell helped seal the deal for Edmonton.
The Oilers made it interesting when Darnell Nurse took a holding penalty two minutes into the 3-on-3 frame, but Cam Talbot and the rest of the Edmonton Oilers held on long enough to get it to a shootout to help earn two points for the good guys.
Edmonton begins a three game roadie this evening in Florida. Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"I judge it not just over this last stretch, where he's been very good, but from what I've seen before"
That's Oilers coach Todd McLellan on Cam Talbot's 3-year 12.5 MM extension.
Tabot's Oilers career was a bit tumultuous in that he posted sub .900 SV% in October and November, but he's been absolutely lights out since then.
The opponents are saying
"We needed to compete harder, put pucks on net" Source
Have some of this
