I’ve been away the past few days, so I’m going to have to cheat a bit. From NHL.com:
The Oilers put a dent in Calgary’s postseason hopes on Friday night as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice in a 3-1 victory at Rexall Place. Jordan Eberle scored the other goal and assisted on both of the tallies by Nugent-Hopkins as the Oilers won their second in a row.
“It was huge for us to win this game,” said Nugent-Hopkins, the first player taken in last June’s NHL Draft. “It’s as close to a playoff game as we are going to have this year. It was a lot of fun playing in a game like that. There was so much intensity and emotion out there.”
Have the Flames hit a wall? I guess we’ll know over the next few games.
