That was oddly familiar and equally upsetting. Final Score: 6-5 Wild After the way the last two games went, both disappointing losses in very different ways, the Oilers needed a bounce back effort tonight against the Minnesota Wild, and they needed to lay their balls on the line to make sure that it happened.

GDB 34.0: Wake Me Up When It’s Over (6pm MT, SNW)

The saying/quote, “Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me,” is often very accurate in my world.

2019/20 Edmonton Oilers GM34: Oilers @ Wild – Three Players to Watch
