Uh-Oh, Loves Comes to Town

Uh-Oh, Loves Comes to Town

Jay Woodcroft did a fine job behind the bench for the Edmonton Oilers last night, Dave Manson too. However, the credit this morning must go to the players, who chased every puck, contested all available shots and started on time while never letting up. That was a complete effort in a gigantic game, Edmonton now boasting a 6-4 record in the playoffs and a 2-1 edge in the quarterfinals. I have to tell you that’s the most complete game I can recall this Edmonton team playing. Mike Smit

Flames seeking answers for McDavid: 'We've let one guy beat us'

Flames seeking answers for McDavid: 'We've let one guy beat us'

It's safe to say Connor McDavid is on the minds of the Calgary Flames three games into the Battle of Alberta. The Edmonton Oilers superstar went off for three more points in Sunday's 4-1 Game 3 victory to bring his total to nine in the series. The Flames, now trailing 2-1 in the Round 2 matchup, are aware their season depends on finding a way to slow down the world's best player. "We've let one guy beat us a few nights now," Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk said, per Sportsnet's Eric Francis. "Ba

The Day After: Oilers masterclass, Kane hat trick gives Edmonton series lead

Where to begin. Should we start with the Edmonton Oilers jumping out of the gate and pushing the pace of play all night long on route to their 4-1, game three win? Or should we talk about Zach Hyman, who ripped a laser over the shoulder of Jacob Markstrom 52 seconds into the second frame to open the scoring? Or should we talk about Evander Kane’s natural hat trick in the second, the seventh-fastest in playoff history? Or how about Leon Draisaitl, who on one leg, set a playoff record for assi

Flames have no answer for Oilers’ Three-Headed Monster of McDavid-Draisaitl-Kane

EDMONTON, Alberta — You knew what was coming, Darryl Sutter was saying after Game 3, as Oil Country erupted into unadulterated bedlam outside Rogers Place. Car horns honked endlessly, orange Oiler flags waved wildly, and fans climbed pre-greased poles with as much as ease as Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Evander Kane picked the Flames apart. Yes, Sutter said, the Calgary Flames knew what was coming.  And yet they still got hit in the face with a two-by-four wielded by the Oiler

Surprise, surprise: 40-year-old Smith outplaying Markstrom

Surprise, surprise: 40-year-old Smith outplaying Markstrom

EDMONTON — Mike Smith was old, and according to some, looked tired. According to me, actually. It was Game 2, and after getting the hook in the 9-6 opener, Smith had left a rebound sitting in his crease for Brett Ritchie to deposit. That made it 2-0 just six minutes into Game 2, and as that old Calgary wrestling promoter Stu Hart would have said, at that point the Flames were “directin’ traffic.” Smith was looking every bit like the 40-year-old geezer who wasn’t supposed to be able to
