Morning, folks.

The Oilers skated to a 4-3 win last night after falling behind early against the Calgary Flames. If you watched it, you love to see it. If you’re like me and hockey doesn’t exist before opening night, you love to hear about it. You obviously didn’t watch it.

It wouldn’t be a CB Podcast episode without the crew raining praise down on Jesse Puljujarvi!
