Avalanche 3, Oilers 4 It was a war of attrition for the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday, as they survived the blowing of a three-goal lead, the loss of two more veterans, and a veritable avalanche of rubber directed at their net to emerge with a 4-3 regulation win over Colorado Avalanche. The Oilers nearly won this one in the opening ten minutes when they outchanced the Avalanche 5-0, outscored them 3-0, and drove the previously red-hot Semyon Varlamov from the net. They spent the next 40 minutes nearly losing it, blowing that lead and getting outchanced 24-7. But the Oil righted the ship by connecting on their one powerplay chance midway in the third, then managed to successfully play Hang On

The Edmonton Oilers held on for a win, Claude Giroux proved he can score at even-strength at the Wells Fargo Center, and the Calgary Flames got some offence from an unlikely source. Here are four things we learned in the NHL Wednesday. Nobody wins the hard way quite like the Oilers Build a 3-0 lead by the midpoint of the first period? Check.

Edmonton Oilers hockey. The Oilers picked up a 4-3 win versus the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday in the most Oilers fashion. All the same in the standings, though.

Leaks can be expressed as giveaways, unsatisfactory goaltending, a sudden collective energy loss, a shortened bench or ill-timed penalties that hand opponents opportunities.

They did their best but they just couldn't blow a three goal lead. Sorry, Team Tank. If you've been paying close attention you might have noticed that I haven't written a single game recap this season. Even Ben has written one and he only logs onto the site about one a month, about two-thirds of the time on purpose. How is it possible that I've avoided 73 game recaps you ask? I'm sure you don't actually care but it's my blog so I'm going tot tell you anyway. You see, between a baby girl that now calls my apartment home and work it's been tough to find the time to watch a game, to find the time to watch closely enough to write something about it has been damn near impossible. But when t
