EDMONTON – Two days before, less than two seconds missing in the 0-0 game, only Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin were left in Edmonton Oilers' corner. It was written heartfeltly, fighting long nights and not showing. He saw Banana, the only current in the open network.
But, instead, Benn shot and Mikko Koskinen gave Edmonton a great deal of savings and gave him a win at that time. Two points, no point.
On Thursday, 3:54 a.m. 2-2 until the third season of the game, Koskina left her first joke with Oiler, deflecting her pass through a crash in her cage. But Oilers saved the external challenges.
Then, in third place, Alex Iafallo, was hardly in his place, he crossed the track width and shot it in the seats next to Oilers blue line. It's been a matter of postponing the game for a few months, but Edmonton won power play and won a 3-2 free game.
Two points, no point.
"Well, the last four or five goalscorers were here," said Drake Caggiula, especially for Ken Hitchcock's five games (3-1-1). "We have to learn to win these games, and I think it's starting to do so slowly." We're doing a tight hockey right now and we're doing it right, and we'll get pretty good results. "
The game about the old player in the right way & # 39; about? By clicking, it plays an honest game, the choice is not to cheat you, to take your dashes and avoid shortcuts.
Do all of these things and prizes are still not ranked in the ranking. But teams that are "in a good way" get a fair share of rest. And these jumps, when capitalized, become more goals, goals, and points.
From this hockey writer, he has become a barometer, telling you if he tells you what he is watching is doing well. The bad team will make a good break for a while, and vice versa. But big pictures, on top of the big sample, are the ones that complain about leaving the bad team, "we have fortified it", it's good to walk with a laugh and a gesture.
And two points, of course.
"Since I was here, a couple of games have been much better off and we did not get it," said Hitchcock. "We took a break today. We had a seat at the end (Tyler Toffoli), we must be more comfortable in these games. You need to get scores from closed games … and we do not want to crack.
"We did not give up much in the third, but those that were gone were nothing else".
Looks like Hitchcock's reputation as a defensive coach. Since he had said the scene has arrived: a player has a "puck for me", and it can be creativity. But the other team puck, "It's not negotiable. We play our way," says Hitchcock.
Some are heavy. You would know how to win, especially thanks to the oilers list, after the top three advances.
"It's pushing for us to be our best," said Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, after another two-night night. "It's difficult to come across quarter-round and try to change things, but we know things that we know about, but pushing and honest us."
Hitchcock has given Nugent-Hopkins the second line, and the midfielder scored 24 points in 25 games. And in the last two matches, Hitchcock and assistant coach Trent Yawney have played their defense against Oscar Klefbom at 28:30 against Dallas and another 25:14 against Kings.
Klefbom has achieved unpredictable goals. He has played five matches in the last three matches.
"When you play with tranquility, you can do a lot of minutes," said Hitchcock. "I think it's 25 (minutes) floor. You'll see it more than that."
Klefbom has been at the other end of these encounters during its 280 games at Oilers Uniform. But Thursday against Los Angeles, his club played well and won well.
In a strange jewelery hockey, it's a good sign.
"You win these 5-1 earnings and feel better than real good play. It gives us great confidence," said Klefbom. "We can play better, but it's two points and it's very good."
