Four goals, a sloppy PK and one bad call
The Nashville Predators scored three times on the power play and got a decent bounce in the way of a blown offside call en route to their 5-4 victory over the Oilers. Viktor Arvidsson had the game winner for the Predators midway through the third period while on the power play. We will forget any of this ever happened going forward.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"In my opinion, and I'm maybe biased because I'm with the team that lost, but it was clear it was offside to me...I think we need a review on what is and what isn't offside. His feet were in the air and the rule book says a player's feet have to be in contact with the ice surface as the puck goes over the blue line."Source
That's Oilers' coach Todd McLellan on Viktor Arvidsson's last goal and the controversy that surrounded it.
The opponents are saying
"We talked to a lot of teams. The value of Kevin was dictated to us. Sometimes the value of something you cherish isn't the value that other people have."
That's Blues GM Doug Armstrong on trading away defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk to the Washington Capitals.
What's the price of Kevin Shattenkirk these days? A first rounder, a second rounder, and a prospect. It's a price that was too rich for Edmonton's blood, and that's just the price for Shattenkirk the Rental. Washington also received goaltender Pheonix Copley in the deal.
