Seven Goals Lift Oilers Over Flames
The Oilers scored seven goals and Laurent Brossoit earned his first NHL victory as the Oilers trounced the Flames at the Dome. It was an especially poor outing for Flames goaltender Chad Johnson, who yielded three goals on four shots. Jordan Eberle led Oiler scorers with four points (2-2-4), Connor McDavid had a goal, Benoit Pouliot had two assists, and Laurent Brossoit picked up his first career win as an NHL goaltender turning aside 38 of 41 shots.
Since Saturday, the Flames have gone 0-2 with losses to the Leafs (0 goals) and the Canadiens (one goal). Hey, tough luck there.
Oilers can inch closer to the Pacific Division top with a victory tonight against Anaheim.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"The biggest thing was that we started well. We capitalized on our chances early and kind of got them behind the eight-ball. Coming off a back-to-back, that's huge and it kind of rolled from there."Source
That's Jordan Eberle on his team's performance against the Flames.
After Eberle's 18 game goal drought, he's got three in his last three. That's good, right?
The opponents are saying
"I would say that we make these decisions on who gives us the best chance to win. If we got a player that’s been out for an extended period of time and [with] one game gets in front of it and we feel that a four-day break would help, well you have to consider that. That’s just common sense

That's Ducks coach Randy Carlyle on whether or not he'll start John Gibson between the pipes tonight.
Gibson had to leave Saturday's game against the Wild with an upper body injury. Should he be unable to go, Jonathan Bernier would get the nod.
Have some of this
