Better Lait Than Never: Oilers still undefeated in 2024, ugly wins, and the mighty Zach Hyman

5 months ago
It must be your favourite day of the week because I’ve got a fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never recorded and set to massage your eardrums.
Kicking things off, I started the new episode of BLTN with yet another complaint about winter. While I was thriving under the brown winter, getting hit by a dump of snow and cold over the last few days really ruined my mojo. On the bright side, I did get a new bed amid the deep freeze conditions, and it’s given me a great excuse to do nothing other than sleep all day. Back to business, I started the Oilers talk with a quick recap of last night’s game in Chicago and how that might have been one of the ugliest wins you’ll ever see. While the 2-1 final ended up in our favour, the boys certainly didn’t do themselves many favours on the way there despite going up against a team that is missing most of its best players. Yet, at the same time, isn’t winning hockey games the most important part of the story regardless of how you get there? Winners of 16 of their last 19 games, the Oilers are finding ways to get the job done even when they don’t offer their best effort, and that’s a really nice trait to have given the climb they face to get back in the playoffs. The good news is that the Oilers’ best players are playing like their best players, and it’s no surprise that the success we’re seeing right now is directly tied to those individuals raising their level of play. 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.
