Both Carolina and Edmonton entered overtime having yet to score a goal on Monday night. Some late game heroics by Andrej Sekera helped push the Oilers over the hump earning two points for Edmonton in the process. Sekera took a pass from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, took the shot, and followed up on the rebound to help earn the Oilers two very much needed points in the standings.
The Oilers' home stand continues tonight as Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning come to town.
The Oilers are saying
"We just seem more comfortable...It seems like we start games a lot better. We don't wait for the other team to come in here and dictate how the game is going to go, we just kind of go and play"
That's Oilers forward Taylor Hall on his team's home record. The Oilers are 12-7-1 at Rexall compared to a dismal 5-14-2 away from Edmonton.
The opponents are saying
"When we play to our strengths, we're a good team in this League...when we don't -- when we stand around, don't execute, can't make a pass -- you're a below-average team, and it shows"
Earlier I stated Talbot put up a .941 in his last 10 games. I was wrong, it was .931. Good on @ReidWilkins for catching it. Math is hard.— Woodguy (@Woodguy55) January 5, 2016
