Tied At 2
Just 45 seconds in overtime, Jakob Silfverberg scored his seventh goal of the playoffs to seal the deal for Anaheim. Just seconds prior to Silfverberg's game winner, an icing was waived off as Oscar Klefbom outraced Silfverberg to the puck. Adam Larsson had a crucial giveaway to Ryan Getzlaf, who served the puck up on a platter for Silfverberg. Silfverberg rocketed one past Cam Talbot, and it's a new ball game.
There was some cantankerousness in Oil Country after this one. A controversial goal was allowed while Cam Talbot was interfered with by Corey Perry. The icing call late in the game. Perhaps if one of those had changed, the outcome would have? Likely, but it's back to square one tonight for a crucial game 5 in Anaheim.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"You want to play so good at home...You have a lot of pressure from the fans, obviously and you want to make them proud...When you go down there and maybe when they come up here that pressure releases a bit."Source
That's Oilers defenceman Oscar Klefbom.
The away team has won every game so far this series. Edmonton looks to continue this trend tonight.
The opponents are saying
"He should be getting some serious praise. He's been the difference in this series for us."
That's Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf on Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg.
Sports quotes are often filled with non-content and fluff, but Getzlaf is bang on here with Silfverberg. Silfverberg has five goals and one assist in four games this series versus Edmonton. It'll do.
Have some of this
