TWICE AS NICE

Patrick Maroon’s game-winning power play goal coupled with Cam Talbot’s 39 save effort helped put the Oilers over the Ducks by a 2-1 score on Friday night. Edmonton now owns a commanding 2-0 lead in the best of seven series, and they’ll look to tighten it up even further with a win tonight.

What To Watch For From The Oilers

Drake Caggiula looks to be back in the lineup after crashing into the boards during game 2. Caggiula left the game with just 4:35 in ice time, but looks to be back on line three tonight with Mark Letestu and Zack Kassian. Caggiula has yet to score in eight playoff games, but has ten PIMs.

What To Watch For From The Ducks

From Anaheim Calling

The most unfortunate thing about Game 2 was the fact that the Ducks did in fact play very well. They dominated possession and strung along quite a few chances, but Cam Talbot put up a brick wall. Talbot was the better goaltender Friday night. And he also had the help of the hockey gods and a couple of posts. Beyond unfortunate.

Cam Talbot’s holding a .934 SV% so far in the playoffs. That’s not too bad.

Final Thought

Edmonton’s taken two straight from a team that hadn’t lost in regulation since March 10th. They can apply a vise grip if they make this thing 3-0 tonight.
