Morning, folks!

Feeling the funk this morning thanks to the third period erasure of a Vancouver Canucks lead. You really love to see the Edmonton Oilers, who like Jesse Puljujarvi as a person and teammate so much, go out and avenge his beautiful little face after Antoine Roussel assaulted him.

Leon Draisaitl had three more points to move three points up on Mitch Marner and remain eight points back of Connor McDavid.

Caleb Jones and Patrick Russell drew in and the former had an excellent game, while the latter acquitted himself well enough, too.

We get to do it all over again tomorrow night and hopefully, with one more big W on the West Coast, the Oilers can put Vancouver’s season to bed and move even closer to the divisional summit.
