It was an eventful week in the Oilers organization, with a trade, recalls to the big club, and some much needed victories for the farm team. Here is the week that was. (Photo by Rob Ferguson, all rights reserved).

Anton Lander, Jordan Oesterle and Griffin Reinhart only just arrived on the Oilers roster, and already they're heading back to the farm. The trio were assigned to the Bakersfield Condors following Sunday's 1-0 shootout win over the Canadiens, though one or more of them may not be there long.

Oh my. Words cannot describe the joy I felt when Andy Moog stoned the giant Habs in the 1981 playoffs. Montreal was the No. 3 seed (behind the Islanders and Blues) and Edmonton came in as No. 14 seed (ahead of only Pittsburgh and Toronto). The Oilers scored three goals (one from Anderson, two from Kurri) in the first period and hushed the home crowd on the way to winning 6-3. Won Game 2 in Montreal, too. Then came home and swept les Habitants 6-2. All details are here, my thanks to Steve Lansky. Andy Moog faced 96 shots, stopped 90, for a .938 save percentage. He was beyond glorious, Claude Ruel never knew what hit him. Music!
