A bonus episode of Better Lait Than Never? On a Saturday? After a big Oilers win? Absolutely.
After coming up with a huge win in Game 2 of their series against the Calgary Flames, the Edmonton Oilers are coming back to Edmonton with some momentum and I was absolutely fired up about it. Heading into Game 3 with the series tied, the Oilers have the opportunity to steal home-ice advantage away from a Calgary team that has been unable to stop Edmonton’s offence. Led by Connor McDavid, the Oilers looked as solid as ever in last night’s game, and if you’re willing to ignore the first six minutes, they outscored the Flames by a 7-1 margin through the final 50 minutes. Sure, two of those goals were called back by horrible officiating and a questionable goalie interference call, but even that wasn’t enough to stop our boys from willing themselves to victory. That’s why I invited Mark Printz from Flamesnation to join me to talk about what happened, what the atmosphere was like at the Saddledome, and what he’s expecting from his first playoff trip to Rogers Place tomorrow night. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another round of voicemails to get your take on what’s been going on over the last few days as we navigate the madness that is the NHL playoffs.
