Should have had two, but lucky to get one. Final Score: 3-2 Sharks in OT

Tyler Pitlick turned pro in the fall of 2011, and since that day he has been matriculating toward an NHL job. After multiple injuries over multiple years, he finally emerged this season and posted a strong (almost) first half of the season. Does anyone have a list of injuries? I do, but it may not be complete. It is impressive, I will say that much.

"It's a Christmas Miracle," has been said in many Christmas movies. Most were fictional tales, but right now the Edmonton Oilers are living out their own real life Christmas Miracle: they are in a playoff spot and tonight they battle the San Jose Sharks for first place in the Pacific Division.
I picked the Oilers to make the playoffs, but I didn't see them battling for first place nearing the midway point of the season. Yet here they are, riding a three-game winning streak, with the most road points in the NHL, 24, and a chance to sit in first place in the Pacific Division and ninth overall in the NHL.
After the Decade of Darkness, darn rights it's a Christmas Miracle.

This morning, it was announced that Pitlick is done for the year with a torn ACL in his left knee. If Pitlick didn't have bad luck he would have no luck at all.

Depth is something we haven't talked about in the past ten years in Edmonton. Though we haven't had as many injured players so far as last year, my injury report is still way too long for my liking. But this year is different. This year we're actually winning, and part of this can be credited to depth. And Connor McDavid. Mostly Connor McDavid actually, but depth too.
