Has everyone recovered from the game last night? Good thing Canadian medical care is good, cause I'm pretty sure all of Edmonton was nearing a mass heart attack. Despite the odd, but amazing last second win, we lost a couple soldiers yesterday. Let's get into it.

The Oilers didn't play a great game last night, but they won. "We won't be perfect all season and putting two points in the bank is important. Come April, it won't matter how this game was played, we'll only know we have the points in the bank," explained head coach Todd McLellan.
He makes a great point, but he also mentioned there is an aspect his team still needs to learn.

Heaven knows, the odds of making it to the NHL are long enough without adding ignorance and racism to the pile of obstacles. Your country of origin, the colour of your skin or your ethnicity shouldn’t be factors in pursuing and maybe even realizing that dream -- any dream for that matter.
NHLNotebook: McDavid and Draisaitl hit 100 career points, Eberle finally scores and TSN's trade bait list

The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article.
In this NHLNotebook, we look at McDavid becoming the third fastest Oiler to reach 100 points, Jordan Eberle finally getting the monkey off his back as well as a TSN Trade Bait list that is packed full of big names.

I’ve already dropped Jordan Eberle several spots on this Top 100 list based on what he’s done, or hasn’t done, since the start of this season. As of this writing (Jan. 4) Eberle is a moving target who is trending down. By the end of the season, he could be even lower in the eyes of many fans or he could end up right back where I had him. I expect the latter.
