Game Recap 48.0: Edmonton Oilers vs Nashville Predators (1/14/2020) - Oilers Nation

After Saturday’s heated affair down in Calgary, all anyone has been talking about around here is the next Battle of Alberta that’s coming up on January 29th while unintentionally ignoring how important tonight’s contest is against the Predators. If we’re looking at the Wild Card spots in the Western Conference, the Oilers and Preds are separated by only four points and that meant that I was hoping that the boys would be able to look past Calgary, focus on the task at hand, and put some distance between themselves and Nashville. I don’t care that we’re only in January, every point in the back half of the season is important and the only result that I was going to accept had to include a 25th ‘W’ being added to their totals. As always, the Oilers needed to make sure that they got off to a quick start to set the pace and give themselves the best chance they could at winning, which was exactly what they did. Well… kinda.
