SBN Counterpart: Nucks Misconduct
The Edmonton Oilers head to the west coast tonight, taking their talents to Vancouver for a quick pit-stop against the Canucks before heading back to Alberta for two-game set with the Calgary Flames.
Both teams are on the up and up, with Vancouver feeling themselves a little after some positive results against Toronto and Montreal, while Edmonton is fresh off beating the absolute shit out of Ottawa over nine periods.
Something’s gonna give.
Vancouver hasn’t played since Wednesday, so they’ll figure to be more rested than the Oilers who played — and flew — last night. Mikko Koskinen is slated to go for the Oilers, while Thatcher Demko will start for Vancouver.
Jake Gardiner (CAR) on waivers— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) March 13, 2021
Jake Gardiner makes $4.05MM with two more years due after this one. Doesn’t seem super prohibitive, so you assume he’s been bad, right? Maybe not:
Gardiner would also help take the edge off a Darnell Nurse deal in advance of his next, presumably monstrous, contract.
Claim Gardiner and deal Barrie szn imo.— Brian King (@Kinger999) March 13, 2021
It’s All Uphill
Hey how many minutes until puck drop I want to be at least 3x the legal limit before Koskinen faces that first shot— Ersatz (@Ersa_tz) March 13, 2021
Mikko Koskinen has let the first shot in more than once this season, putting the Oilers in a bit of a jam early on more than one occasion. Will tonight be more of the same, or can he buck the trend?
How does it end?
