Huge win last night for our heroes thanks to big games from the reigning MVP, the real MVP, their middle schooler, their best defender and their starting goaltender. Their new third line right winger had a decent little game, too, if I do say so myself. I’d wager if he keeps playing like that he won’t be the third line winger for much longer.
It certainly wasn’t a perfect performance from the Oilers — Mikko Koskinen still had to make a bunch of saves — but it was a marked difference from the night before and certainly a good start to the journey to 55-1-0.
The Oilers get the Habs tomorrow night as the journey continues. See you in the game thread.
