Oilersnation Radio: Will Connor McDavid catch Nikita Kucherov for the Art Ross Trophy?

3 months ago
Just because we’re heading into the long weekend doesn’t mean that we’re not offering up our usual dose of Friday afternoon Oilers talk. This week, we’re recapping the Oilers’ big win over LA, Connor McDavid’s Art Ross Trophy hunt, depth scoring, and more.
Kicking off the podcast, we started with a delicious debate about how Kris Knoblauch should dole out playing time down the stretch. Even though there’s still plenty to play for right now, that may not necessarily be the case after the Oilers clinch a playoff spot. Would it make sense to sit some of the stars for a game or two if the team can lock in a second-place finish?
We also looked back at last night’s win over the Los Angeles Kings and how that performance was one of the Oilers’ best defensive efforts that we’ve seen in quite some time. Despite the Kings playing the trap, it was the Oilers that really didn’t give up much of anything. Outside of their lone goal in the third period, the Kings struggled to get much done despite firing a ton of shots from the perimeter.
Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a handful of Ask the Idiots questions submitted by listeners, some betting talk for Bet99, and another round of Hot and Cold Performers before winding things down with some score predictions ahead of tomorrow’s matchup with the Anaheim Ducks.
