Hope you woke with the spring in your step afforded to someone when their favorite hockey club is tied for the Peter North Division lead.
Edmonton wasn’t spectacular, but their superstarriest superstar was, and their goaltender was excellent. A couple other guys had good nights — Ethan Bear, I’m looking at you — but it wasn’t necessarily a standout game. But it was a professional enough job and its hard to pile onto them given the circumstances.
Game 33: Low-event game, but a solid one. 1st line was flying, 2nd line missed Yamo, and Koskinen was solid.— Sid (@KoskiWin) March 19, 2021
2nd straight game Bear has played against the top line most of the night (Schiefele line) and put up the best numbers for our defenceman. Trade him though, right? #Oilers pic.twitter.com/WGct2M0bBJ
Edmonton gets a day off before getting right back to work tomorrow night against those same Jets.
