Better Lait Than Never Ep. 19 – Oilers vs Kings, McDavid chasing the Art Ross, and Darnell Nurse
By baggedmilk7 months ago
Is there anything better than a fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never to celebrate locking in a playoff position? Absolutely not. The Edmonton Oilers are rolling and I am fired up about it!
Getting this week’s podcast started, I was so excited to talk about Clinchmas and how the Oilers locked down not only their playoff spot for the postseason with a big win over the Avalanche but also home-ice advantage as well with last night’s victory over the Penguins. Seeing as the team looked like they were in very real danger of missing the playoffs only a few months ago, having them finish off as strongly as they did was such a blessing and ultimately a lot of fun to watch. It wasn’t all good news, though, as Darnell Nurse suffered a lower-body injury that will keep him out of the remaining regular season games. While expected to return for the playoffs, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that this is a big loss for the Oilers and one they need to manage carefully. Speaking of the playoffs, we now know the Oilers will be squaring off against the Kings in the first round, and it will be fascinating to watch how this series plays out with two teams that have played each other very tough this season. Lastly, I wrapped up this week’s podcast with another round of voicemails and answered your questions on everything from the Oilers to grocery deals to wine recommendations and everything in between.
