By the end of the 2nd period the Oilers had lost the gameplan and guys started to adlib. But for 32 mins we played an unfamiliar, but very necessary game that this club needs to know how to play.
That avalanche trade was sinfully bad.
If we play that way against most teams in the West we'll have a chance to win. I don't think getting shut out by the Blues should be a completely discouraging thing.
I know it's a shabby excuse but the puck definitely wasn't bouncing in their favour last night. When Schultz missed the empty net (or rather the puck missed his stick) I said to myself it's going to be one of those nights where nothing goes right.
