The Oilers scored five goals in Philadelphia. That's great!
They allowed six. At least Connor McDavid made friends with Flyer defenceman Brandon Manning.
Edmonton held two separate two goal leads, but it was Michael Raffl scored with a minute and a half remaining in the third period to cap the three goal comeback for Philadelphia en route to a 6-5 win. Things looked great for the Oilers - they had two power play goals, a shorthanded goal, hell, Benoit Pouliot got in on the scoring. When Benoit Pouliot scores, good things have got to be happening, yeah? Eh.
Oscar Klefbom made it 5-3 early in the third period with a power play goal. The Flyers would make it 5-4 just a minute later on the powerplay on a goal from Jakub Voracek. Claude Giroux would tie it at 5-all midway through the third, and Raffl made it Philly's game to lose with just 90 seconds remaining in regulation.
The Oilers look to salvage the road trip by going 1-1-1 with a win tonight in Minnesota.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"If you score five, you should be able to win...There were some individuals who were red-rotten."Source
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan after last night's 6-5 loss to the Flyers.
Man, what a rush. And Jonas Gustavsson was there. You should've seen it. Less than stellar games for 93 and 77, but The Monster was there too. I wonder of Jhonas Enroth is doing anything.
The opponents are saying
"You watch every game, he's going to get his chances. He had four or five really great chances against us and he just didn't connect on them. His speed is going to allow him opportunities to score against every team, every night. We were the fortunate ones."
