Well, tonight is not technically a must-win game for the Edmonton Oilers, but it certainly feels like it. They’re trailing 2-0 in the Western Conference Finals and it really doesn’t feel like they have any sort of momentum heading into this game. The good news for the Oilers is that Rogers Place will be rocking and the team has been solid on home ice in the playoffs with a 4-2 record. Head Coach Jay Woodcroft will need to make some adjustments tonight too if the Oilers are going to win this game. We talked about what the team needs to do differently tonight and more on The Sherwood Ford GIANT Pre Game Show!
The Avalanche are a very good team but the Oilers definitely haven’t had their ‘A’ game in either of the first two games. If they bring it tonight, they’ll have a shot. They’ll also need Mike Smith to battle hard tonight and the group in front of him will need to make life very difficult for @Pavel Francouz, which they didn’t do in game two. We broke it all down and gave our YEG Burger Keys to the Game!
As always, you can watch the show live at 1 pm every game day OR by heading over to The Nation Network on YouTube!
