Congrats to @Nail10_1993 for celebrating normally after a huge goal..."
in cheek so to speak, but in case you missed it, after Nail hammered
his 4th goal of the season, the 19 year-old stood behind the net, raised
his arms and summoned his teammates with his fingers. While the
celebration wasn't over-the-top, it did however brought the ire out of
Phoenix's Derek Morris. The defenceman took exception to Yakupov's celly
and subsequently threw hay-makers at Ryan Whitney.
Yawn. Say what you will but you can bet Don Cherry will say a few words on Saturday.
the Edmonton Oilers beat the desert dogs the hard way. The Oilers
thought they had sealed a victory with Lennart Petrell's goal until Nick
Johnson tied it at one a piece with 19 seconds left in regulation.
wristed a juicy rebound past Dubnyk's glove to cancel his first
shut-out of the season. The tying goal came off of the power-play with
Sam Gagner in the box and goaltender Chad Johnson pulled for the the
extra attacker. Dubnyk (who has played all 6 games this year) was
brilliant for the Oilers stopping 21 out of 22 shots, including a
breakaway chance during the early stages of the 3rd. Antoine Vermette
received a stretch pass and went in all alone only to be stopped by 'The
Giraffe'. After tonight's win the net-minder improves to 2.72 GAA with
with that late goal and to be able to get the two points showed a lot
of character. said Oilers coach Ralph Krueger of his team's resiliency.
"It was another real big growth opportunity for our team tonight.'
The Oilers will now take on the Sharks in San Jose tomorrow evening.
