A week ago today Edmonton Oilers thumped the Stanley Cup champs 4-1 in perhaps their most complete game of the season, and fans pointed to three more home games against “beatable” teams as a big opportunity for the club to gain some serious traction in the standings.
Not all the games were quite as tight a defensive effort as the one vs. the Bolts, but they didn’t have to be. Not with an offence that erupted for 6, 7, and 6 goals in those games. On Saturday afternoon it was slow in coming, but Tyson Barrie’s tying goal with 11 minutes to play was followed by three more strikes down the stretch as the Oil flowed to a 6-3 triumph over New Jersey Devils.
Despite battling a flu bug, the Devils put up a strong game until the Oilers raised theirs to another level down the stretch. Several high-skilled forwards including Jack Hughes, Nico Hischier, and Jesper Bratt kept Edmonton defenders on their toes if not their heels at times. The latter two in particular lit up the Oil for all three Jersey goals, two of them in rapid succession early in the third to grab the lead. But the Oilers responded with one of Jay Woodcroft’s favourite words, “resiliency”, and four of Woodcroft’s favourite things, “goals”. A good win on a day the team as a whole was a little less than its best.
