Oilers get outshot 25-12 in first 2 periods, but lead the game 2-1 off goals from Hall and Yakupov. Yakupov gets benched in the 3rd period because Krueger wants the team "playing not to lose". Ryan Smyth takes a dumb penalty, Avs score because Krueger refuses to play Paajarvi in "high pressure situations". Danis lets in a softie a minute later, Oilers then let in an empty net goal because Krueger opts to use Smyth+Horcoff+Hemsky+Petrell+Eager+Whitney on the 6v5 for "veteran presence".
4-2 Avs, HF Oil meltdown, Krueger gets extended, Smyth gets resigned to a 5 year deal.
