Morning, folks!

What can we say about that one last night? The Oilers were good enough to lead for 40 minutes before an inexplicable third period — both on and off the ice — saw them give up 4 goals en route to a 6-4 loss. Unreal. Like someone mentioned in the comments, maybe Dave Tippett needs a night in the press box. Maybe he needs to take a look from up top. Get a reset.

Whatever it is, the Oilers did the things that allow a team to erase a two-goal deficit and turn it into a two-goal lead last night. Unacceptable.
