Put the pedal to the floor

It’s not just Connor McDavid. It’s not just the officiating. It’s more than that. Despite what some Flames fans, and also the Flames players themselves, would like you to believe, there are a handful of reasons why the Oilers are leading the Battle of Alberta right now and there are also a handful of reasons to believe that the Oilers are doing it despite not playing at their peak. Yes, Connor McDavid is on another level and it’s a level we really haven’t seen in this era of the NHL.

Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: Keep the hammer down in Game 4

It’s game day and the boys at The Locker Room wanted to bring me in for yet another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in radio.

2021-22 PLAYOFFS, SECOND ROUND GAME FOUR: FLAMES AT OILERS

2021-22 PLAYOFFS, SECOND ROUND GAME FOUR: FLAMES AT OILERS

The Edmonton Oilers won Game 3, won the five-on-five shot share (52 percent), the five-on-five goal share (4-1), and enjoyed 11 of 21 HDSC at five-on-five in the game. That’s miles from the first two games, so far away the Flames still have the series edge in shots (56 percent) by some margin. Edmonton has the goal advantage (12-10) through three games, and if the team can reprise the Sunday game tonight, we might be talking about the Oilers taking a stranglehold on the series. The number

A few minutes after a dominating 4-1 win in game three, Mike Smith sat at the podium answering questions about his play, the Milan Lucic hit, the play of Evander Kane, Connor McDavid, and Leon Draisaitl. He answered them all, and when he was asked about enjoying this run, at his age, he mentioned how great it was to play in front of family and friends.

Oilers want to show they’ve learned lesson, keep skate on Flames’ throat in Game 4

EDMONTON, Alberta — Mike Smith mentioned it unprompted on Sunday night in the minutes after Game 3, the words of a 40-year-old goalie who has seen it all. The Oilers were conducting their postgame press conference, as usual, in the Hall of Fame Room at Rogers Place – a shiny shrine that honors Edmonton’s glory years.
