First off, hold the phone.
LMHF / LoudMouthHemskyBlog – Edmonton 4, Vancouver Zero, Zip, Nothing – Oilers put the pegs to the Canucks four times in the first period. Taylor Hall had a hat trick, and everything is groovy in Oil City the day after yesterday.
Copper and Blue – Cannonball Explodes for a Hat Trick in less than 8 Minutes - Three goals in eight minutes for Taylor Hall? That’s an infomercial pitch line. <insert Cockney accent> “How long would you expect to accumulate three goals in one game by a single player? Three hundred minutes? Two hundred minutes? What if we told you there was an Edmonton Oiler that could score three goals in just eight minutes? No muss! No fuss! Just put it in my veins.
NHL – John Kreiser / Gordie Howe Turns 85 - What can you say about Gordie Howe? 801 career goals, 1850 points, and a playing career that lasted over three decades. Gordie Howe was the best player of his kind, and is generational proof positive that you can be both talented and tough. There will never be another Gordie Howe, the sport could hardly contain the one it had. Happy Birthday, Mister Hockey.
Sabre Noise / Jordan Leopold Traded To St. Louis - Douglas Murray is worth a pair of picks, Jordan Leopold is worth a pair of picks…I wonder if there are any potential members on the Edmonton Oilers who could be worth a pair of picks…
One month to go, and the Oilers control their own destiny. Dallas, Nashville and Columbus all have 35 points, Phoenix is one behind.
WHO TO WATCH TONIGHT
Dallas hosts Los Angeles
Columbus visits Anaheim
