Game Notes WPG vs EDM
Edmonton Oilers (Head Coach: Todd McLellan) at Winnipeg Jets (Head Coach: Paul Maurice)
NHL Game #984, MTS Centre, 2016-03-06 05:00:00PM (GMT -0700)
Referees: Dave Jackson, Kelly Sutherland
Linesmen: Jay Sharrers, Lonnie Cameron
Three Stars: Cam Talbot; Patrick Maroon; Ondrej Pavelec
- Bad luck for Brandon Davidson. And the Oilers. Yeesh, when will it end?
- I don’t buy that Buff’s collision with Davidson was deliberate intent, but I think it’s symptomatic of the fact that it is open season on the Oilers players game after game.
- The Jets are actually a pretty strong 5v5 team. Their record is lousy because they are one of the most penalized teams in the league, and their PK is not good. Most penalized … except, of course, against Edmonton – where hooks, cross checks, and slashes are never a foul.
- Not that I thought the Oilers played well – I don’t think they did – but I’m glad Talbot was able to steal that win, because it’s a nice poke in the face of both the Jets and the refs.

Every time I trash Korpi for his lousy possession numbers, he does something good. Then again, being on McDavid’s line is a boost for anyone – and I saw three different massive tire fires while Korpikoski was on the ice. Helluva price to pay, but I guess the goal was worth it.
