Iiro, Your Hero
Milan Lucic dragged Canucks defenceman Troy Stecher what seemed like six hundred metres across the Vancouver ice before getting a shot off. Lucic's follow through would connect with Stecher's face, crumpling him to the ice. Iiro Pakarinen was on clean up duty, and the goal ended up being Edmonton's game winner of the evening.
The Oilers are in strange waters. They can become Pacific Division Champions with a regulation/OT win tonight against these same Vancouver Canucks. A regulation win coupled with a regulation loss by the Ducks against the Kings, and your Oilers are 2016-17 Pacific Division Champions. They get a banner with that, yeah?
The Oilers are saying
"It's never easy to win a division and this last weekend has given up something to play for"
That's Oilers goalie Cam Talbot on the possibility of the Oilers taking the Pacific
The Oilers might win the Pacific tonight. They might not. They might win in regulation and the Ducks might lose in regulation. Mostly good things have happened so far this season. Why not one more?
The opponents are saying
"I'm not looking at my points, it's about the team. It doesn't matter what I do if we don't get two points every game." - Boeser— Vancouver Canucks (@Canucks) April 9, 2017
That's Canucks forward Brock Boeser on his team's success versus his individual success.
Boeser had a goal in Vancouver's 3-2 loss to the Oilers last night. In eight career NHL games, the 20 year old forward has five points (4-1-5)
Have some of this
