Khaira's Game Winner Propels Oilers Over Coyotes
It's been two straight regulation wins for the Oilers over the Coyotes. Someone ought to get a ribbon out there
Jujhar Khaira scored his first NHL goal midway through the second period. It would turn out to be the eventual game winner. Khaira was alone in front of Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith to receive a pass from Mark Letestu. Khaira did the deed, and by that time, the Oilers had a 2-0 lead on the Coyotes. Later in the period, Leon Draisaitl would score his seventeenth goal of the year on a pass from Connor McDavid to make it 3-0. With two minutes remaining in the second period, the Coyotes would get one back as Radim Vrbata would score on the power play, but the Oilers earned their second consecutive regulation victory against the Coyotes.
Losing to the Coyotes isn't an option right now. You've got tough games coming up against your neighbours in the Pacific Division standings, and letting two points slide to a lottery team is no longer acceptable.
The Panthers are in town tonight, and the Oilers will need to use Florida's game in Calgary last night to their advantage. A win tonight will get them within two points of the top of the Pacific.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"Everyone goes through slumps, I've had stretches where I haven't scored, but nothing like this. This is for sure the longest. It's for sure frustrating."Source
Jordan Eberle hasn't scored since 1862.
Tied for sixth in goals scored on the OIlers with Mark Letestu, Eberle hasn't scored a goal since December 6th in Buffalo. Before y'all go throwing things at your TV, he's still tied for fourth place on the team in total scoring with 27 points (8-19-27) with Milan Lucic. Yes, he's paid to score goals. I'm paid to handle the customers, and both of us aren't doing either right now. You gonna fire me too? Come at me.
The opponents are saying
"I love muffins."
"I love muffins."
That's Jaromir Jagr on how much he loves muffins. He really loves muffins. Muffins, for me, are for when something special is going on. They're not everyday breakfast material.
The second leading scorer of all time is tied for second on the Panthers in scoring this year. Only Vincent Trocheck (16-15-31) has more points than Jaromir Jagr (8-19-27) on the Florida Panthers.
Have some of this
