Edmonton Oilers Survive With Three Goals Disallowed and Win in Overtime



Edmonton Oilers Survive

On Monday night, the Avalanche ran the Oilers off Rogers Place with seven goals against Jack Campbell and an Edmonton team so far from their ‘A’ game they almost ran out of letters.

Thankfully for the Oilers, their video coaches came to their rescue with three goals off the board after challenges — two on narrow offsides and one for questionable goaltender interference — which allowed Edmonton to pull off an amazing 5-4 victory in overtime.

“Our group needed more time,” defenceman Darnell Nurse, who scored with 14.3 seconds left in extra period. “But we remained resilient. There are nights you don’t feel it but you still have to find a way to win and that was our plan tonight.”

Without video coaches Jeremy Coupal and Noah Segall, the Oilers would still be reeling and wondering what went wrong against a team with only two wins in 16 games. Their efforts saved the squad from embarrassment and set up two pivotal points for future success.

“Those were some big calls,” Edmonton Oilers centre Nick Bjugstad remarked. “Our video guys and coaching staff were right on it; there was no hesitation. That’s an important part of the game and we rely on those guys to assist us – which they did tonight. It definitely changed the game.”

No doubt about it: Edmonton conceded seven goals for the third time in eight games with just an inch or two to spare. That needs to be addressed, but for now they will take comfort in banking these two points.

“We don’t ignore what led up to those (disallowed goals against),” said head coach Jay Woodcroft. “Even if it’s just an eyelash here or there, those are shots you don’t want in your net.”

“There are things we can improve in our game, but I was proud of our will to win and our ability to find a win when an opposition goaltender was having an excellent night,” McGrath said.

“We didn’t play the game we wanted to in the first two periods, but we knew what the stakes were and our players found a way to earn those two points. Nobody is blind to the fact that there are still issues we need to address,” Leboeuf concluded. “While some aspects need improving, everyone agrees on one thing: there are things that need to be fixed.”

At the other end of the ice, Campbell made his first start since March 4 and spent most of the evening trying to stay on track. He allowed four goals in the opening 40 minutes, was saved by the goal post on another and had three goals against reviewed; however, he finally found some consistency down the stretch and secured victory.

“Jack was just like our team,” Woodcroft said. “He found a way to win on an off-kilter night – that was all that mattered for him and his self confidence. Getting two points for the team is all that mattered to him.”

His night was a 60-minute adventure, but he received no assistance whatsoever from his teammates who were consistently one step behind until the third period when they came alive.

“Last week we had three good opponents in playoff race battles, so this might have been an opportunity to breathe a bit,” defenceman Mattias Ekholm, who scored twice including the game-tying goal with 3:47 left in regulation, said. “I don’t know what you want to call it; we could’ve been better but these games are hard. You need to build yourself up and get going – and we did just that.” “It could’ve been much better but these games are tough; we snuck it out but tough things happen sometimes and move on,”

Edmonton’s problems began early when Campbell let in his second shot of the game at 1:12. Fortunately, it didn’t count due to an offside call, and four minutes later Alexander Barabanov scored for San Jose with a goal.

Nick Bjugstad tied it in the first and Kailer Yamamoto made it 2-1 early in the second. But San Jose scored four times (only three of which counted), while Edmonton responded with Ekholm’s first goal of the night.

Noah Gregor scored on a two-on-one early in the third to make it 5-3 Sharks, but an offside challenge revealed he was inches offside.

“Video coaches deserve more credit than they get,” Ekholm lamented. “They put in long hours and are relentless – but what’s their margin for error? Offside can sometimes be by inches – yet you expect them to always be right. That said, video coaching won us the game tonight.”

LATE HITS — Yamamoto’s 10th goal of the season gives Edmonton an incredible 11 players with double-digit goal scoring this season. Erik Karlsson had two goals for the Sharks in 27:57 of ice time while Evander Kane went minus three for Edmonton.

World Baseball Classic

Baseball boasts some of the world’s finest players, representing their countries in the tournament and ultimately determined by how well-played each game. Major League Baseball offers much of this talent but doesn’t guarantee victory to always go to USA; players have the option to represent their home nation even if they reside here in America.

The Sky is the Limit: Richest Team Owners In Major League Baseball

Steve Cohen

Baseball has never seen so much money invested in it as now. America’s wealthiest businessmen have all viewed the sport with a kind eye and an even kinder wallet.

Steve Cohen, a billionaire hedge fund manager with an estimated net worth of over $13 billion, failed in his attempts to purchase the New York Mets. Had he succeeded, Cohen would have become the richest team owner in Major League Baseball (MLB), which has long drawn America’s wealthiest.

Here are the five wealthiest team owners in Major League Baseball today:

Flames suffer 15th overtime loss: Jacob Markstrom’s frustration boils over



Jacob Markstrom's

Goaltender Jacob Markstrom of the Calgary Flames appeared distraught with the result and took his frustration out on his stick.

He then transitioned the weapon to a dangle with an overhand chop as he left the ice, followed by another whack on the bench that saw half of it fly back out onto the ice.

On Saturday night, Calgary Flames fans suffered another loss – their 15th when games go to overtime or shootouts. Now 6-15 in overtimes and shootouts overall, this 6-5 defeat to Dallas Stars at Saddledome seemed particularly painful than most.

Due to a missed opportunity, they only managed to keep up with the Nashville Predators but fell one point behind the Winnipeg Jets — who beat them in overtime earlier in the day to extend their Western Conference wildcard lead over Calgary Flames to four points.

On a night filled with bad luck for the Calgary Flames, adding another few posts to their league-leading total and missing a call after the puck hit the net over Stars goalie Jason Robertson’s overtime winner, it was their flat start and poor coverage at the end that proved decisive.

Before the teams’ starting lineups had even completed their cycle, the Flames found themselves down two goals by Joe Pavelski and Radek Faksa.

They entered the intermission with a 3-1 deficit after Elias Lindholm and Wyatt Johnston each scored one goal in the final minute of play.

Calgary Flames scored three consecutive goals to open the second period, giving them their first lead of the game.

MacKenzie Weegar, Nick Ritchie and Blake Coleman all scored at five-on-five; Robertson however added his 40th just over a minute later for an even game.

Midway through the third period, Rasmus Andersson scored for Stars defenceman Jani Hakanpaa to tie it once more.

On the OT winner, the Flames lost the draw in the offensive zone and watched a long pass connect from Pavelski to Robertson. As Andersson defended in a one-on-one situation, Robertson made a quick move for better shooting position before patiently roofing a backhand shot over Markstrom’s glove with Hintz’s spray and body presence serving as distraction for the Flames goaltender.

“Tough one,” Andersson told reporters after the game. “You give Robertson an inch and he takes it and scores.”

“That was an intense game.”

It certainly did, especially with back-to-back nights on the road this week. It’s hard to envision the team making the playoffs without a four-point finish before returning home.

“Stay in the moment boys,” advised Calgary Flames head coach Dave Mackay. “Everyone is trying to pull you away. Stay right there.”
