Connor McEberles 5, People In Leaf Sweaters, 2
Edmonton had five goals on Thursday night, and Connor McDavid had a hand in each one of them. Jordan Eberle had his first career hat trick, and the Maple Leafs fell on the road to the Oilers by a 5-2 score. I struggle to think of the day where I'll run out of superlatives to hurl at Connor McDavid, but he's the most fun thing I've watched come near this club since the summer of aught six. Jordan Eberle is no slouch either, scoring two goals and netting the empty netter for his third of the night. Cam Talbot turned aside 34 of 36 shots en route to his twelfth victory of the year, and the Oilers try to put their awful road trip in the rear view mirror.
A struggling Winnipeg Jets team will face off against the Oilers tonight at RX1 as the Oilers try to string two victories in a row. Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"Everybody has ebbs and flows"
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan on his recent line changes, specifically Taylor Hall.
Todd McLellan's got some strange line changes for today's matchup against the Jets. More on that in a paragraph or two.
The opponents are saying
"Somewhere in the next two or three games, both Pavelec and Hutchinson will get games and then we'll make decisions about where we are going forward after that." Source
Have some of this

McLellan very clear that Hall and Draisaitl will be together again, maybe very soon.— Reid Wilkins (@ReidWilkins) February 12, 2016
