Oilersnation Radio: Stuart Skinner shines, big wins against Vegas and LA, and the Pacific Division
By baggedmilk8 months ago
The Oilers won two big games against teams they’re chasing, they have a huge run of games on deck, and that means we’ve got plenty to talk about on the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio. This week, we’re talking about Connor McDavid’s 300th goal, the wins over Vegas and Los Angeles, Stuart Skinner’s big night, and a whole lot more.
To kick off the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio, we got started with a conversation about whether or not the Oilers run with the 11-7 or 12-6 configuration once the playoffs start. While we didn’t have a consensus on what Jay Woodcroft should do, the thing we all agreed on is that it’s nice to have the option. From there, we looked at the big wins against Vegas and LA from this past week, and how those two regulation victories put the Oilers back in a position to win the division. With only six games left on the season, the race for home-ice advantage is as close as it’s been since the start of the season. From there, we looked at Stuart Skinner’s incredible performance against the Kings and how his shutout was the first the Oilers have had since Game 7 against LA in the playoffs. Not only was Skinner fantastic between the pipes, but the Oilers did a really nice job of playing a playoff-style game to close out what was a very tight game against a team they’re chasing in the Pacific Division standings. Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a look at the remaining schedules for the Oilers, Kings, and Golden Knights to see if we can figure out who has the best opportunity to make a move either up or down in the standings.
