Closing In On 100
Edmonton's 3-2 overtime victory over the Ducks put them in first place in the Pacific Division, albeit for a brief moment. Connor McDavid connected with Leon Draisaitl for an overtime winner that sent Edmonton into the stratosphere, though the Ducks would end up back on top of the Pacific after defeating Calgary the next night.
There are four games remaining for the Oilers this season. The Oilers control their own destiny as far as what position they finish in. Can they run the table en route to a Pacific Division crown?
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"Going into the season many of us thought we could be battling for one of the wild-card spot not the division lead so it's been a little better than I expected"
That's Milan Lucic after Edmonton's 3-2 overtime victory over the Ducks
It's a lot better than anyone expected. I had them in the low 80s. They very well could be 20 points better than that.
The opponents are saying
"I'm not going to talk about the season, I'm still looking ahead. We are going to evaluate some of our players."-Source
It's obvious that the season hasn't gone the way that the Kings would have liked, but to be eliminated from the postseason by Arizona? Back slowly away.
Have some of this
