THE MILK'S GONE BAD
The Oilers have been outscored by a score of 15-3 over their past three games, although their last effort against New Jersey was more a snoozefest than an eight goal shellacking like the one they took
on Long Island in Brooklyn. No, the Oilers were outscored only by a meagre count of 2-1, successfully putting everyone watching the game into a peaceful slumber by the time the eighth minute of play came to a close.
Things started off rather slumberly as three time Stanley Cup Champion Martin Brodeur's sweater number was raised to the rafters in a pregame ceremony that lasted for only an hour, but felt more like a week and six days. The Oilers scored their lone goal eleven minutes into the first period. Jordan Eberle scored his fifteenth of the year, Benoit Poulliot got the primary assist on the goal, while Connor McDavid picked up an A along the way.
Everyone was lulled into a peaceful slumber by the time Reid Boucher scored for New Jersey seven minutes into the third for the game winner. You probably forgot this game even took place. That's good, because there's another one today. It's against the Leafs, and they've lost Dion Phaneuf to the Senators for sprockets and a pizza
The Oilers are saying
"Obviously, it was much improved over the past two games. Very competitive group that worked their ubtts off and gave themselves a chance to win. But that part of the game is a given. It should be a given on a nightly basis. That's the problem we hae right now, I'm glad the group responded byt short end of another one-goal loss."
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan his team's recent performance against New Jersey.
Good: allowing only two goals instead of eight or five
Bad: scoring one goal instead of three or sixteen
The opponents are saying
"I'm happy I'm here, a fresh start, this is what I wanted." Source
