The unpredictability of sports is what makes them so exciting. The Oilers dominated the Flames for close to 40 minutes on opening night, but the couldn't score at EV and ended up losing the game. Last night, the Oilers played decent, got outshot 43-29, mainly due to six consecutive penalties, but they came away with a point.
I think we'd all agree, including the Oilers, that playing well, and "learning a lesson", but losing is not what this team needs. They are past the point of moral victories that don't result in two points. They need victories. Ugly ones, pretty ones, unearned ones or deserved ones; they need simply need wins.

So maybe Thursday night didn’t go as planned. Corsi won, game lost. That’s okay. I’m willing to forgive and forget provided that this time the Oilers actually show up on time for puck drop. They can't drop 2 quick goals to the Canucks tonight. Can. Not. Happen. GOT IT?!?
