The Hits Keep On Coming
The Edmonton Oilers handled the Winnipeg Jets in the Heritage Classic. They earned two points, they shut out a Jets team with a budding star on it. Things are good right now. Also, Connor McDavid.
The trio of Mark Letestu, Darnell Nurse and Zack Kassian each scored a goal in Sunday's outdoor triumph at Investors Field. The Jets were held to a giant zero on the scoreboard, and the Oilers left a sun-soaked Winnipeg with the lead in the Western Conference. I can barely contain myself with all that's going on here. Cam Talbot earned first star honours turning aside all 32 Winnipeg shots. The Oilers win. The Oilers win again.
Edmonton moves it back indoors tonight as the Capitals visit Rogers Place. Can the Oilers make it six wins in seven games?
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"We knew, two points, at the end of the day, once we stepped on the ice, that's what we went there to get. The experience itself was incredible, but once that puck drops it seems like, no matter where you are, it just turns into a game."Source
That's Oilers defenceman Darnell Nurse on his experience at the Heritage Classic.
Midway through the second period, Nurse scored a pretty little goal after emerging from the penalty box.
The opponents are saying
"We talked as a coaching staff that we'd like to get him in this trip somewhere for sure...I thin it's important. Taylor's a real good pro and has been in this role a little bit and been with us, but at some point in this road trip, I think you're going to see Taylor Chorney." Source
