Two Shutouts, Two Games
Edmonton has gotten especially great goaltending from Cam Talbot, who turned aside all 35 shots from the Los Angeles Kings en route to Edmonton's second consecutive shutout victory. Patrick Maroon scored his 25th goal of the season just one minute into the period, while Milan Lucic registered a power play goal in the thirteenth minute of the first. I do miss the recent games that saw the Oilers score seven goals, but if Talbot can keep everything out, that'll work just fine as well. Talbot is playing the very best hockey of the season right now, and the Oilers are on a four game win streak.
With ten games remaining, he'll need to keep it up as the Oilers look forward to the second season.
A win in Anaheim will put the Oilers within two points of the Pacific-leading Sharks. Can the Oilers keep the good times rolling?
The Oilers are saying
"I've got to pick my spots...I've got to pick the right opportunity. Maybe (Monday) wasn't the best spot, but he (Jarome Iginla) wanted one, so I gave him one."
"I probably have to slow down a little bit, my hands are starting to hurt. Maybe hold off until April."
That's forward Patrick Maroon on Monday's dance with Kings' forward Jarome Iginla
Maroon has as many goals as Connor McDavid. Physicality is wonderful, but I'll take more goals before fights with Jarome Iginla.
The opponents are saying
"They're not sneaking up on anyone...They're one of the best teams in the league. They have the best player - or highest scorer - in the league. We need to be ready to play one of the best teams we're going to face all year. You're going to need your best game because they're as good as anyone."-Source
That's Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano on facing the Oilers.
Please recall Andrew Cogliano. If you do not recall, he was traded from the Oilers six years ago for a second round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. This pick became centre Marc-Oliver Roy. Andrew Cogliano does not stop playing hockey. He's never missed a game, and currently has 776 on his resume. Cogliano currently ranks seventh on the Ducks with 31 points (14-17-31) this year.
