from Gene Principe of Oilers.com,
OK now that is a little more like it…actually a lot more like it from Taylor Hall. That’s the guy Edmonton thought they were getting when they used the first overall pick to select the Windsor Spitfire winger. How good has he been lately? Really good. The kid has been impressive on how often he scores and how he does it
I don’t know if I can fully explain the certain quality he has that not many are born with and that’s wanting to be the ‘guy’, the gamebreaker, the game changer. It’s like he eats pressure for dinner. He showed it Saturday night when there was the opportunity to get the puck from Ryan Whitney. He was yelling for the puck, he wanted it. He wanted the puck and the game on his stick.
Did you really have any doubt he was going to be the OT hero? When I saw him in all alone I figured Jaroslav Halak had no chance of stopping that puck.
continued and if you missed the OT goal, watch it below. You will also see Andy McDonald suffer an upper-body injury when his head meets the knee of an Oiler player.
