Last links for a couple days as we head into the (Canadian) Thanksgiving long weekend. The Oilers were victorious last night against the Vancouver Canucks on the back of their O’Doyle of a power play (it rules and is a bully), but Zack Kassian took a tumble during a fight that saw him fall skull-first onto the ice and require assistance to get off. It was really ugly stuff and you hate to see it.
"He's got a pretty good bump on his head from hitting the ice but he was in good spirits & was telling jokes when I came & saw him after the game."— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) October 8, 2021
Coach Tippett provided an encouraging update on Kassian following tonight's #Oilers win.
Hoping for a speedy recovery and no long-term effects.
Otherwise, enjoy getting intimate with some poultry and gravy this weekend, and we’ll see you Tuesday.
It wouldn’t be a CB Podcast episode without the crew raining praise down on Jesse Puljujarvi!
Preston & Shona break down a few intriguing storylines surround Edmonton’s preseason to date including a look at Jesse Puljujarvi’s and Brendan Perlini’s fantastic showings as well as some less than fantastic showings from Kassian and Turris.
They also ponder whether there could be some changes inside the crease as the year goes on and give their ideal Oiler rosters for opening night!
