Brossoit Shines, Oilers Without Lustre In 2-1 OTL to Jets
Laurent Brossoit stopped 32 of 33 shots in regulation and overtime, but shootout goals by Blake Wheeler and Andrew Ladd helped Winnipeg leave Edmonton with two points. Blake Wheeler had a goal in the second period as well, while the Oilers got a shorthanded offering from Matt Hendricks midway through the third. Edmonton's offence saw just 22 shots, and had it not been for Matt Hendricks and Brossoit, the game would have ended with zero goals for the good guys.
Edmonton takes on a Ducks club that's had a resurgence since the season began. Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"Talbot is going to run some games now here for a while, so we've got to make sure that he is up and playing...I know that (Anders) Nilsson has been playing some games down (with Bakersfield) and has been playing well, so we have to make a goaltending change here in a little bit."
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan on his goaltenders.
What do you suppose the reason was for bringing Laurent Brossoit up? See what he's got? Get Nilsson some extra work in the AHL? Whichever reason, it sounds like Brossoit is headed back to Bakersfield in the not too distant future.
The opponents are saying
"It's great to score goals and all, but we're going to win by playing good defence..." Source

...given that the team has had some passengers of late and been easy to play against at times I wonder if Khaira makes sense as a recall?— Bob Stauffer (@Bob_Stauffer) February 15, 2016
