Lots of emotions running through me right now after that win, but some quick notes:

1) Ladies and Gentleman, that's how you play systems hockey. Defensive zone awareness, proper positional play, and no gaffes in coverage like which repeatedly happened against SJ

2) When's the last time you remember us able to actually tie the game with the goalie pulled? And then go on to win the game? That's a feature of the "competitive" Oiler teams that played from 1997 leading up to the Hemsky/Stefan goal in early 2007. After that I honestly can't remember another goal with the goalie pulled that eventually ended in an Oilers win

3) We need to re-arrange our top-6. That top-line just isn't working for us.
