Deflated In Columbus
The Blue Jackets hung a six spot against an Oilers team who got behind the ball early. By the time the first period had ended, Columbus had the game's first two goals. Three more for the Jackets in the second period, and the game was sewn up. The Oilers got goals from Leon Draisaitl, a power play goal from Taylor Hall and another from some kid named Connor McDavid during this one, but Edmonton was unable to overcome an early deficit.
The Oilers will face the Winnipeg Jets today before heading home for a one game stint. Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"It's going to be a treat. I'm glad I get a chance to play them in my first week, especially getting a few games under my belt and getting comfortable here with the system the players and the coaches. I'm excited for Sunday. I can't wait to go out there."Source
That's Oilers defenceman Adam Pardy on playing his former team. Pardy is raring to go up against Winnipeg.
I'd be excited to play the Jets if Connor McDavid was on my team, too.
The opponents are saying
"We didn't give up, we continued to fight for the next one" Source
