Tenth Avenue Freeze Out

Tenth Avenue Freeze Out

The Edmonton Oilers got some breaks and good goaltending last night in the first two periods, finding themselves up 2-0 after 40 minutes. The final frame was most unkind, featuring three Boston goals, four high-danger scoring chances, some luck and a large amount of chasing the puck against an excellent team. You’d hope for a better result, but the possession numbers (61 percent Boston) and the shot clock (43-20) loved that dirty water. For Oilers fans, some of the younger players played well

EDMONTON — “I believe he was a skill player.” Jake DeBrusk keeps a straight face for as long as he can, and then breaks into a smile. The question is about his father, Louie DeBrusk, who played 228 of his 401 career National Hockey League games as a scrapping winger for the Edmonton Oilers. How did a man who had 1,161 penalty minutes in 401 career games guide his son to become this NHL rookie who already has 11 goals this season? How much would the father have loved to have been able to p
