How do the Oilers, on a 4 minute PP, not identify that Gagner was absolutely redhot tonight. Gagner was open for a pass on that PP 3 times and didn't get a pass. yet he was creating and getting and making chances all friggen night when they actually got him the puck.

Guy had a goal, 4 serious scoring chances, 4 great feeds, and he goes begging for the puck when he's the most creative guy on the ice and clearly in a zone.

Defies description.

The players on this team don't identify as simple a team concept as "who is hot" on any given night. Gagner had all kinds of jump and was ready to put together his best game of the season, if any of his teammates noticed.
