Open Thread: It Was A Good Day

Oilers win! Everyone else loses! I SAY GOOD DAY SIR

  • Unless you lost a mint on the football game, yesterday was a good day for you.  Oilers win!
  • Cam Talbot only had to make 22 saves en route to his fifth shutout of the year.
  • Leon Draisaitl scored in the shootout.  It would be the only goal scored during the day.
  • THE FLAMES LOST TO THE RANGERS IN REGULATION
  • THE KINGS LOST BY FIVE GOALS TO THE CAPITALS
  • A little to be concerned with:  the Oilers have only two goals (one if you don't count the shootout goal that Leon scored vs. the Habs) in their last two games.  While it's great that the Oilers are able to keep the Kings eight points away, not scoring any goals is going to get really tired really quick.
  • Oilers don't play again until Saturday against the Blackhawks. At the very least, we can root against the Kings while they play catch-up. Now's the time to catch up on that needlepoint you've been putting off for so long.
  • Shona will have a UofA Pandas article coming your way at about 3 o'clock local time.  Get on the bus.
