Has the special teams turned the corner?

Well the PK sure has. If you can't kill penalties you have to play timid hockey. Play timid hockey you don't score. Of the 2 special teams this one is the most important. And they are killing them off!!!!

If you go back to Dec 20th the Oilers PK is, including today, is 26 for 27!!!! That is 96%

Code:
DECEMBER OPPONENT SCORE W-L-T-OL GOALIE DEC. SF-SA PP PK  
Sat 20 Vancouver L 3-0 12-15-6-0   T. Conklin 24-31 0-4 6-6 
Tue 23 at Calgary L 2-1 12-16-6-0   T. Salo 31-21 0-4 4-5 
Sat 27 at Vancouver W 6-2 13-16-6-0   T. Salo 26-33 1-3 6-6 
Sun 28 Calgary L 2-1 13-17-6-0   T. Salo 21-21 1-2 3-3 
Tue 30 Minnesota T 2-2 13-17-7-0   T. Salo 40-18 0-3 5-5
In the last 10 games they are 31 for 36. A pace of 86%

Code:
Fri 12 at Phoenix T 3-3 11-13-5-0   T. Salo 42-21 1-5 4-6 13,609 
Sun 14 at Anaheim W 3-2 12-13-5-0   T. Conklin 29-30 0-4 0-1 12,426 
Tue 16 at Los Angeles L 4-2 12-14-5-0   T. Salo 24-25 0-2 3-4 18,118 
Thu 18 Minnesota T 1-1 12-14-6-0   T. Conklin 31-20 0-4 3-4 16,145 
Sat 20 Vancouver L 3-0 12-15-6-0   T. Conklin 24-31 0-4 6-6 16,839 
Tue 23 at Calgary L 2-1 12-16-6-0   T. Salo 31-21 0-4 4-5 18,389 
Sat 27 at Vancouver W 6-2 13-16-6-0   T. Salo 26-33 1-3 6-6 18,630 
Sun 28 Calgary L 2-1 13-17-6-0   T. Salo 21-21 1-2 3-3 16,839 
Tue 30 Minnesota T 2-2 13-17-7-0   T. Salo 40-18 0-3 5-5 16,839

Other tidbits:

The PP is still crawling along but at least they got one right.
Since Salo's return from the dead the Oilers are playing 500 hockey. (Since the Vancouver game)

yipee they all grew a brain

good to see they have the pk sorted, i can see this team go on a tear in the second half of the season. the pk hopefully stays like this, the pp starts improving slowly, Oates and Reasoner play as we expect them to and Smyth returns to his scoring form. I still think this team can make the postseason, g2k i think asked where rockbottom was and i said to him it would have been between Boxing Day (26/12) and first week in January and looks like they did it a few games back.
