Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: Starting on time is our kryptonite

Happy Wednesday, Internet friends, and welcome to yet another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in radio.

And while the Oilers looked better in the second and third period than recent memory, it wasn’t enough to beat a red hot Cam Talbot, who turned aside 38 shots in his winning effort. “We did
