Steps From Second?

5-2 win over the Sharks has the Oilers within striking distance of the second place LA Kings

NHL: San Jose Sharks at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

The Oilers made it interesting in last night’s 5-2 victory, but two goals from Leon, another from Kailer Yamamoto and a wild one from Derick Brassard ensured two points for the Oilers.

Let’s take a really quick peek at the standings this morning, Friday March 25th 2022.

That’s not bad.

  • After being held to zero goals in their last two games, the Golden Knights picked up a win over the Predators last night. Vegas picks up two points, but credit to the Oilers for keeping three points of space with their 5-2 win last night. Next up for Vegas: Home versus Chicago.
  • Yes, the Oilers are within two points of the LA Kings with a game in hand. LA picked up a point in a shootout loss to Chicago last night, Edmonton’s win puts them within striking distance with a game in hand. Next up for LA: Home versus Seattle.
  • The Canucks are still hanging around. After picking up two points on Wednesday in a win over the Avalanche, they picked up a point in last night’s OTL versus the Wild. Edmonton has a six point lead over Vancouver, who will need to go on a run pretty quick. Next up for Vancouver: At Dallas.

Edmonton will visit Calgary for the next chapter in the Battle of Alberta on Saturday night. A win in Calgary coupled with a loss by the Kings will have Edmonton in second place on Sunday morning.
