For some time now, I’ve been on this playoffs kick. Call me crazy.
Fans of this club haven’t been rewarded very much since 2006, unless you count some really high picks in the draft. It’s going to be at least another season before we can see if April will be kind to all of us. Get in the playoffs and see what happens. You never really know.
After six seasons of missing the dance, all you really want is that one glass slipper. Jordan Eberle is the engine to the 78 Oldsmobile that will get the Oilers to the glass slipper factory. The Oilers are going to need a couple of defencemen to act as the wheels to our ’78 Olds, but when Eberle is capable in his second year of service to score goals like he did in last night’s 3-2 Sharks victory, I feel pretty good about the offence.
I’ve tweeted this goal a few times this morning, and I don’t think it’s getting old anytime fast. I’m not going to sit here and throw superlative after superlative at this goal. The goal is Eberle’s 30th of the season. It’s not out of the realm of possibilities that Eberle pots 40 G and / or 80 points on the season. Sam Gagner had the shootout winner, and Ryan Smyth had a nice goal to bring the Oilers back to a 2-all tie, but this goal is just amazing.
He’s a second year player on a 29th place team. Just think of what he could be in 2015. Hopefully, the Oilers are able to catch up.
Oilers finish their sweet little California road trip at 1-1 and head home to face off the Canadiens on Thursday.
