It’s pretty easy to dismiss Thursday’s Oilers/Blues game as a meaningless affair, but the truth is that there’s still some point to the games being played – if not at the team level, than at least at the individual one.

On Wednesday, the Edmonton Oilers announced that Anton Lander had been recalled from the minors on an emergency basis. It's the second time in four days the team has brought Lander up due to being down to less than 12 forwards.

The Oilers last two victories came from third period comebacks and both times they overcame a two-goal deficit to get the victory. In a span of five days, the Oilers have jumped up into a tie for 7th place with the most victories when trailing heading into the third period.
Granted, they only have five on the season, but the Islanders are first and they only have eight. In another wasted season you have to celebrate every positive achievement, regardless of how minute it seems.

Mark Arcobello is set to become an unrestricted free agent at season’s end, and if I were him I’d look hard at moving on to another NHL organization. If I were the general manager of the Edmonton Oilers, on the other hand, I’d put some effort into keeping him, but it isn’t clear that will happen here.

Who would have ever expected this game to get to a shootout when the Oilers were down by 3? Just like they drew it up! Final Score: 4-3 Oilers
