The Oilers’ monster road trip continues this morning with a stop in Florida to take on the Panthers. Edmonton played really well on Wednesday in a losing effort to the Lightning and that’s where we started today on the Sherwood Ford GIANT Pre Game Show. Caroline and I broke down what went wrong in that game and what prevented the Oilers from at least getting a point. I’m sure you can imagine where that conversation went. The team played well in front of their goaltending though and that is a big positive. If they play that well in front of Mikko Koskinen today against the Panthers, then they’ll have a chance to win the game.
We knew this road trip would be difficult but it was still difficult to watch the team not grab a point out of that first game. They really can’t afford to get swept on this three-game run so grabbing a win, or at least bringing this afternoon’s game to overtime, is very important.
What are the keys to victory? Where am I laying my money for this game? How will Woodcroft handle his lines? All those questions will be answered in the Sherwood Ford GIANT Pre Game Show! You can watch it right here in the article but don’t forget to head over and subscribe to our Youtube Channel!
