Oilers put another converted touchdown’s worth past Calgary, for the second time in about two weeks. PLUS: Eat shit, Flames. AND: More!

Morning, folks!

Not gonna lie, it’s a sleepy morning. These 8PM mid-week starts are just killer. I can’t imagine what it would be like to play in one, and then have to take a late night trip home and do it all again the next night.

A bit of a miscommunication on our end last night saw us go without a GAME RECAP for the first time this year. But hey, think of it like William Lagesson’s contribution to the Flames’ second goal last night. We were due for some regression, too. Sometimes you get the puck out first try, sometimes you don’t, and your partner misreads the situation and abandons the front and the forwards are too sleepy to pick up the resulting open man.


As mentioned, the Oilers are in Winnipeg tonight to take on the Jets, one of the other two actually decent teams in the North Division. Should be a good one.

Take a nap first. I know I will.
