Well I just think the BJ's have more determination and are actually working hard more consistently. Sure they have a hot goalie... BUT they are simply playing as a TEAM right now. Oilers are still a bunch of individuals... and they win when their individuals put up great performances.. which isn't often enough.

Columbus has a perfect record when leading after 2 periods.. best in the NHL.

Oilers are 2nd worst in the NHL when leading after 2. Only the Avs collapse more than the Oilers.

I'm looking forward to the Oilers-Blue Jackets game next Thursday to see if the Oilers can lift themselves up to the Blue Jackets level.
