Sure. NOW you start winning.
The Oilers are on a three game winning streak. This is not a misprint.
Cam Talbot turned aside 35 shots en route to his second shutout of the season, and four different Oilers scored goals en route to a 4-0 victory in Philadelphia. Patrick Maroon scored in his Oilers debut, and Nail Yakupov, Taylor Hall and Lauri Korpikoski scored a shorthanded goal (!) in the third. The Oilers scored four goals. The Flyers scored zero. The Oilers are winners of three straight. They have more points than the Flames, who lost to those same lowly Sabres last night. The Flames have played two fewer games than the Oilers, but don't shoot down my harmony joy ride. It's weird in these parts.
Edmonton looks to make it four in a row tonight in Columbus as they take on the Blue Jackets. Let's go to the tape.

That's Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot on the team's performance in Thursday's 4-0 shutout victory over Philadelphia.
Second shutout for Cam Talbot this season. I'd also like to point out how much fun it is when the team that averages 2.4 goals on the year can pop off to the tune of four goals. More please.
The opponents are saying
"He never, never, ever looks at the puck...You can't defend him 1-on-1. You have to do it as a team." Source
