Morning, folks!

A large win last night headlines the hot links as the Oilers managed two crucial points after dropping the first half of a home and home with Vancouver on Saturday.

Sunil’s latest podcast welcomes former Copper and Blue writer Minnia Feng on its latest episode.

Mikko Koskinen was sharp again last night as he moved to 10-2-2 on the year, making a strong case to take over the net as the starter for the remainder of the year.

Matt Benning left last night’s game after taking a puck to the head in his first game back from a concussion — but not before returning to said game after taking said puck to said head. Someone probably failed Benning last night. Hopefully he’s OK. And remains OK.

No games for the Oilers until Wednesday now, but one would have to think Koskinen will start that one, too. We’ll find out soon enough.
