NHL: Minnesota Wild at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

Not a recap. Just pointing out that we are actually in the Wildcard spot after last night’s win! We’re also 1 point behind Anaheim and San Jose BUT we have a game in hand on both of them. I honestly didn’t think we’d be in this kind of position again this year. Fantastic news.

Of course, this is the team that Chia built. Now we’re without Klefbom for ‘weeks’. I already felt our blue line was stretched extremely thin before injuries. Can’t wait to see what we do to replace Klefbom and his 25+ minutes a night. My guess is:

Larson/Nurse

Benning/Russel

Gravel/Wideman/Garrison.

That might be the thinnest blue line in the entire NHL.

The highs and lows of being an Oiler’s fan!
