All The Marbles
Game 6 of this series was a memorable one if you're an Oilers fan. A five point night for Leon Draisaitl powered by three goals helped propel the Oilers to a 7-1 trouncing of Anaheim back at Rogers Place. Mark Letestu had a pair of goals en route to a four point night, while Cam Talbot turned aside all but one of Anaheim's 35 shots. Another one like this will work fine.
The Oilers are in Anaheim for Game 7 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. Anaheim has lost four straight game 7s at home over the 0last four seasons. Will Anaheim break their unlucky streak? Or, will the Oilers emerge as one of the final four teams?
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"He sure looked good out there today."Source
That's Oilers head coach Todd McLellan on Oscar Klefbom.
Klefbom was unable to go for game 6 along with defenceman Andrej Sekera. While Sekera will miss tonight's game, having Klefbom back in the lineup is a much welcome relief for the club. The Oilers turned to Eric Gryba and Griffin Reinhart in Sekera and Klefbom's absence. It goes without saying, but it'll be good to have Oscar Klefbom taking top minutes tonight.
The opponents are saying
"Trust the process, embrace the challenge and have fun. This is the most fun."
That's Ducks forward Antoine Vermette on tonight's game 7.
TRUST THE PROCESS
Let's hope it's the same process that cost them seven goals in Edmonton.
