The opposing view

PROJECTED LINES

Up in a bit.


Back to Earth

Both Kailer Yamamoto and Ryan Strome had a goal for the Oilers, but it was the Carolina Hurricanes who dominated play early and often in Monday's 6-2 drubbing.  The Oilers amassed only four shots in the first period, while Carolina had two goals from both Teuvo Teravainen and Eric Stall en route to a romp.

The Oilers try to get that fishy taste of loss out of their mouth with a rematch.  This time, it'll take place at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatchewan.

The Oilers are saying

That's Oilers' forward Kailer Yamamoto on his size not being a factor.

THE PERFECT GAME IS NO HITS

As of this minute, there's no brighter Oiler that's come on this preseason. In four games, Yamamoto has six points (5-1-6) in four games, all at 155 lbs.  After tonight, the Oilers have one final preseason matchup in Vancouver.  If Yamamoto is still with the big club by Saturday, there's a good chance he'll be on that 23 man roster come Sunday.

The opponents are saying

That's Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters on his team's 6-2 victory in Edmonton on Monday night.

Edmonton looked like they were skating in circles on Monday night.  Carolina's power play was efficient (3/6),

Have some of this

  • LINES:  Todd had 'em moving around on Monday in a 6-2 loss.  Jesse Puljujarvi spent time on the first line with McDavid and Maroon, but he split time with Leon Draisaitl and Milan Lucic.  More to come.
  • CLIP CLIP - Edmonton's third wave of cuts saw Ty Rattie, Dillon Simpson, Patrick Russell and goaltender Nick Ellis.  No surprise that Kailer Yamamoto is still here.  Somewhat surprising:  Mark Fayne is still here.
  • Wouldn't be surprised to see Laurent Brossoit get the lion's share of the work tonight.  Saturday's a likely dress rehearsal.
  • Let's.  Go.  Oilers.
