Oilersnation Radio: Darnell Nurse, Jack Campbell, and chasing teams in the Pacific Division
By baggedmilk8 months ago
The Oilers’ win streak ended on Saturday but the boys got back in the win column last night against the Coyotes, and that means we’ve got plenty to talk about on the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio.
To kick off the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio, we got started with a debate about Darnell Nurse and whether or not he gets a bad rap from some Oilers fans that are hard on the guy based mostly on his contract. Even though Nurse is not without his flaws by any means, none of us think that he’s anywhere near as bad as some people like to suggest and actually believe he’s one of the team’s best defencemen. Changing gears, we looked at last night’s win over the Coyotes and how it was an important ‘W’ for the club after falling to the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday. Even though it wasn’t the prettiest win you’ll ever see, the Oilers still got the job done and picked up two very important points. That led us into talking about Jack Campbell’s night and whether or not he had a solid night or if he was once again lucky that the team in front of him is pumping goals into the back of the net. Next up, we debated whether the Oilers still have a chance to win the Pacific Division or if that ship has sailed. While they’re still mathematically in the mix, there’s little doubt the boys will need to string some wins together while also getting some luck with the teams they’re chasing.
