Trouble In Net
The good: Patrick Maroon scored two more goals. Barring something truly awful, he'll have 20 goals this season for the first time in his NHL career. Connor McDavid had two more assists. Another day at the office for that guy. Leon Draisaitl scored a freakish goal to give the Oilers the lead. They had the lead! What about that?
The bad: The Oilers did not keep the lead. Jonas Gustavsson yielded four goals in seventeen shots. Oilers end four game roadie at 2-2. Fires. Looting. Debauchery.
Oilers are back at home to take on the Sharks. A regulation victory would put Edmonton in first place by themselves.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"We're not going to make a mountain out of it, but we do know the performance level has to be there night in and night out now...."Source
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan.
Get the puck to Connor McDavid. Promise, you guys. It'll work out from there.
The opponents are saying
"It was unlucky, it could have happened to anybody...It's your turn to block and you get hit in the face. It's not something you want to get. I was fortunate enough not to lose any teeth and I'm glad I'm feeling better today. The swelling is going down. Until the nerves heal, there will still be some pain."
That's Sharks defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Vlasic will return to the lineup tonight after missing four games from taking a puck to the face.
Have some of this
