Happy Wednesday, Internet friends, and welcome to another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in local Edmonton radio. As I do every Wednesday, I jumped on the air with the boys on The Locker Room for a quick segment to talk about Monday’s big win over the Jets, what to expect from tonight’s rematch, and anything else that’s going on in the world of the Edmonton Oilers.
To kick off this week’s appearance, we jumped in with a look at Monday’s dominant win over the Winnipeg Jets and specifically how the tempo of these games has really cranked up as we near the finish line. Seeing as the end of the regular season is just around the corner, we also spoke about whether or not Dave Tippett might look at easing back Connor McDavid’s minutes to make sure he’s ready to roll for the playoffs. With the captain playing out of his mind, however, pulling McDavid off the ice might be easier said than done. We also looked at Ryan McLeod and Dmitry Kulikov’s debut with the Oilers, so I gave my take on both guys.
