Bombs Away

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,

One shot. One goal. A bullet from the right point that Vancouver Canucks goalie Cory Schneider never saw - even though he wasn’t screened.

“You see him bomb that one?” said head coach Craig MacTavish. “Wow!I knew he had a shot, but that thing was in and out of the net before the goalie even thought he was shooting it.”

And that’s what the Oilers are looking for - potency on what used to be an offensively-impotent blue-line. You might not want to be the forward charged with creating traffic in front of the net when Souray is unloading his cannon, but Edmonton’s power play coach is about to look a lot smarter.
