After Tyler Pitlick scored for Edmonton midway through the first period, the Jackets would score three unanswered goals en route to their seventh consecutive victory. Sam Gagner would score his team leading twelfth goal eight minutes in the second period to tie it at 1-all, while he would assist on Cam Atkinson's go-ahead goal seven minutes into the third. Matt Calvert would add an insurance goal not two minutes later to seal the deal. Sergei Bobrovsky would finish with 33 saves, the Oilers would emerge with zero points.
The Lightning visit Edmonton for a Hockey Night In Canada matchup. Can the Oilers grab two much needed points?
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"I like playing with Ebs a lot...He brings a lot of different elements to a line and he's one of the most lethal players around the net. Definitely happy to be back with him and hopefully we can find (chemistry) again."Source
That's Oilers captain Connor McDavid on getting Jordan Eberle back on his right side.
Eberle is currently third in scoring (8-15-23) for the Oilers. You're going to run into people who suggest that Eberle needs to be dealt for a 3C or another defenceman. These people are not your friends. (They don't suggest that the Oilers need a wing, because if you trade Eberle, you have a RW corps that has 15 career goals combined). Don't hang around these people. Move away from these people.
The opponents are saying
"You can't say we didn't play well. They had 10 scoring chances the whole game and we gave up three goals. You can't ask our team to do anything better than that. Any NHL team will tell you if you give up 10 scoring chances in a game you got a really good chance to win a hockey game, and we did't."
