You can chalk that one up in the L column for the Oilers as they lost to the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in St. Paul. In fact, make that the Oilers 17th straight loss at the Excel Energy Centre.
Captian Canada had the only goal for the Oilers when he converted on Eric Belanger's shot. The Mullet Man backhanded his first tally as an Oiler since 2007 to open the games first goal.
The game remained scoreless until Matt Cullen broke the ice with a beautiful goal of his own. Cullen faked a pass on a two-on-one then blew one past goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin. The Bulin Wall managed to shake off the tying goal and remained spot on with his game until the 4th round of the shoot-out; when Devin Setoguchi won it for the Wild. Khabibulin closed out the game with 34 saves.
The Edmonton Oilers will now face the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena this Saturday.
