Happy Wednesday, Internet friends, and welcome to yet another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in radio. As I do every week, I jumped on the air with the boys on The Locker Room for a quick segment to talk about the Oilers while also offering my takes on anything else that’s going on in the world.
To kick off this week’s segment, we jumped in with a look back at Game 1 and what went wrong for the Oilers as they clearly did not look much like themselves for big chunks of the night. From my side of the TV screen, the boys looked incredibly nervous early on and I’m hoping that the jitters are now out of the way and they can get back to focusing on the task at hand. Yet, even though they lost the first game, I’m not particularly nervous about how this series will go or how the Oilers will respond, and I’m honestly expecting a much stronger effort tonight in Game 2. From there, we looked around the NHL Playoffs as a bunch of higher-seeded teams dropped their first games at home, including the President’s Trophy Winning Florida Panthers. What does it all mean? Probably that we shouldn’t be freaking out about the first game since there is a long way to go on all of these series.
