Couple thoughts

  • John Gibson is back, baby. Ducks ‘tender is back after missing the last four games with an injury. Gibson’s numbers have him sporting a .922 SV% with one shutout. Can the Oilers take advantage of a little rust?
  • SHAKE IT UP: 19-97-98 on top (yay!), 27-29-91 (interesting), 16-18-44 (sure, I guess), 58-55-26 (the royal sampler). Puljujarvi on the top line is something I’d like to see for a dozen or so games, as it’s going to be him or Yamamoto next season that’s on that line. Is 2RW where Drake Caggiula starts putting up points?

If this club were to deal Adam Larsson, I’ve already called the “So really, it was Hall for __________” shirts. My bet is on Trevor Lewis.

If they deal Klefbom, then they get what they deserve, which will be about .40 on the dollar. Again.

Today was lots of fun. Go out and win tonight, Oilers.
