Milan Lucic's natural hat trick helped to propel the Oilers to a 4-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night. The victory was also Cam Talbot's 41st of the season, which is a new season record for the Oilers. Connor McDavid scored his 30th goal of the year, and things went just dandy for the Oilers en route to a win.
The Oilers will face off against the Canucks tonight. They'll return to the comfy confines of Rogers Place tomorrow to take on the these Same Canucks. If the Oilers win twice in regulation (and the Ducks lose to the Kings tomorrow), then Your Edmonton Oilers will be Pacific Division Champions.
Let's start with a win tonight, eh?
The Oilers are saying
"We're lucky to have him at this time of the year. This is exactly what we brought him in for"
That's head coach Todd McLellan on Milan Lucic after Edmonton's 4-2 victory over the Sharks.
Lucic's first half of the season wasn't good. He struggled mightily on a line with freakin' Connor McDavid, but things have changed for the (much) better as of late. He's got 13 points (9-4-13) over the last sixteen games dating back to the beginning of March. If the Oilers can figure out the whole 'Klefbom fires puck, Lucic cleans up' routine, they'll be doin' just fine.
The opponents are saying
"I thought three of the four goals were nice bounces...One of those nights that's like, what's goin' on?"-Source
That's Canucks goalie Ryan Miller on yielding four goals to Arizona on Thursday.
36-year old Ryan Miller will become an unrestricted free agent in two games.
