One More Time
The Oilers were able to cobble a point out of the Ducks, but were again held to just one goal. The Oilers and Ducks were scoreless after two periods when Ryan Getzlaf scored a PPG for the Ducks early in the first minute. Jordan Eberle responded a minute later with his 20th goal of the season. Hold onto that 1-1 tie until overtime, when Rickard Rakell had sweet nothing between him and Cam Talbot. Rakell would bury the pill behind Talbot en route to a 2-1 OT victory for the Ducks.
Eighteen shots got the Oilers into OT. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to take two points out of Anaheim.
The Oilers will face off against an Islanders club who hung an eight spot against the Oilers three weeks ago. Can Edmonton put a bandage on their seven game losing streak?
The Oilers are saying
"This is the first time in 10 years that I have been a seller and it's a little disappointing that way. But we had some housekeeping items to do, and I say that, with all due respect to these guys, but there were expiring contracts and we had to move forward without them and we have to move along."
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan on being a seller for the first time at the trade deadline.
SHIFT TO THE LEFT
I thought the Oilers might be able to scrap more than a third round pick for Teddy Purcell, but that's about right for Justin Schultz. Also, the holding of the money thing, that sounds about right as well.
