Better Lait Than Never: Oilers are undefeated in 2024, and Connor McDavid hits 900 points

5 months ago
At some point, having a fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never come out will be the highlight of your week. Until then, however, I’ll just keep plugging away with fresh releases every single Wednesday, including this brand new episode that covers the Christmas break and what’s to come in 2024.
Kicking off this week’s podcast, I recapped what was left of the Christmas break since the last episode, including a look at the Oilers’ six-game win streak after they beat the Flyers 5-2 last night at Rogers Place. As much as I was trying to relax during the break, it was hard to do when all I was thinking about was whether or not the Oilers will have enough time to climb out of their early season hole. As much as the team is rolling right now — you love to see a six-game win streak powering them forever — they’re still not catching the teams in front of them as much as you would think based on the results. On the bright side, Connor McDavid continued his surge up the NHL points leaderboard after another five-point performance saw him hit and rush past the 900-point plateau. After a slow start by his own standards, the Oilers’ captain is back to putting up points en masse, and it’s going to be so much fun to see whether he’s got another gear to hit down the stretch. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another Righteous Sack Beating and a fresh round of voicemails to get your take on everything that’s been happening since last week’s episode. Oh, and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
