Grebeshkov was not "caught up ice" - he was picked / blocked by a player which led to a two on one... Considering the puck had stopped, where were the forwards who were supposed to be backchecking & covering the Bruin forwards????

But seriously... How often can we say, "well they were just really good, they did a good job"? They didn't! The Oilers are extremely easy to play against when they're playing like they played the second half of that game. The Bruins did NOT play that well. The Oilers made them look good.

Don't think that's true? Why don't you ask Quinn, he's said as much in numerous post games.
I feel that the team's psyche is pretty fragile.

When they are playing well, they're pretty good. But it doesn't take much for them to get shaken and play poorly.

Well, that's to be expected from a young team with all it's veterans injured or otherwise sick.
