Better Lait Than Never: Oilers drag the Panthers back to Alberta for Game 6

28 days ago
The Oilers had their backs against the wall after falling behind 3-0 to the Florida Panthers, but the vibes have changed significantly after the boys won their last two games to push the series to Game 6 at Rogers Place. Needless to say, this past week has been emotional.
I started out this week’s podcast with what was basically a love letter to Edmonton after this city gave us some of the best times of my life over the last handful of days. There’s nothing quite like being here when the Oilers are in a playoff push, and that feeling gets cranked up by a factor of 100 in the Stanley Cup Final. Even though everyone was feeling down when the Oilers fell behind by three games, you’d have thought we were up by three with the way everyone parties on Saturday night.
Looking back at Tuesday’s Game 5, the Oilers needed to go into Florida and get the job done in a bar where they had yet to win. Led by their captain, the boys did exactly that with what was an imperfect yet incredibly clutch 5-3 win. Now the series turns back to Rogers Place where I expect the crowd to quite possibly blow the roof off. If people thought the crowd was nuts for Game 4, I can only imagine the chaos that is about to happen only a couple of days from now.
Lastly, I wrapped up this week’s show with an RSB about Oilers haters eating crow and capped off the pod with another round of voicemails ranging from Stanley Cup woes to positive messages and everything in between. Once again, this podcast really is one of my favourite parts of the week, and I’m so very grateful for the levels of participation by the wonderful BLTN community that keeps moving. Oh, and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
