The Edmonton Oilers just played a “Statement” game.
They were playing one of the worst team in the National Hockey League. They had just gassed their coach. Their General Manager was behind the bench, and, save for a heroic game from their goaltender, would have lost going away.
They responded with a tepid effort that would lose them a game 19 times out of 20 against a competent, motivated NHL team.
The Arizona Coyotes had 27 shots on goal…in the second period.
Did I mention the Coyotes are one of the worst teams in the league?
This going to get ugly…very, very ugly.
