Morning, folks.

Mondays are for brevity so let’s get right to it.

Last night, in a game I did not watch even a second of, the Edmonton Oilers’ ragtag roster of NHL bona fides and camp hopefuls beat the absolute brakes off a similarly composed Calgary Flames team 4-0 in Calgary.

Woof. I don’t know about you but owning more than 75% of the shots seems...good. Sure, it’s the first game of preseason and both sides were missing players. But, still. Shutouts for both Stuart Skinner and Ilya Konovalov to boot.

That’s a team full of net-positives. Let’s have 82+ more of those, yeah? The Oilers will be back at it tomorrow night against the NHL’s newest expansion team, the Seattle Kraken. Puck drops a shade after 7PM.
