Final Thought

The Oilers came out flying in the first period, and kept the pace up even as the Blackhawks started to pick it up. The chances were back and forth, and both goalies kept their teams in it with some solid saves. The Oilers lost a but of a step in the second period, while the Blackhawks didn’t and took advantage, though the Oilers had a handful of chances and killed off both penalties they took. Mike Smith had one get past him, but was great otherwise. They played well in third, but just couldn’t convert their chances. It always sucks to lose, but the played well on the last game of a roadtrip. The one thing that is very clear, is this version of the Oilers plays with a structure and poise that always has them in position to break up a play or jump on a loose puck. 5v5 scoring has to catch up with the powerplay scoring, especially from the bottom six (still). But, the team looks good.
