The Oilers Scored

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

The Oilers, who had only two goals in the previous five consecutive games at home so they’d been outscored 23-2 when Yakupov pulled the trigger for his 20th career goal in his 67th career game.

Oh, yes. Forgot to mention. The Oilers lost the game 3-1 to the Sharks who have now gone 10-1-1 in their last dozen games in Edmonton. It was the Oilers sixth straight loss at home in which they have been out-scored 23-3.

“It’s always good when you score but we have just four wins and we’ve played 21 games. We’re frustrated about it,” said Yakupov to complete his interview.

And the Oilers headed for Calgary with a record of 1-7-0 at home.

Oh, and one other thing. The Buffalo Sabres won last night. Edmonton dropped to 30th overall.

But who cares?

A goal! A goal! Oilers fans actually saw a goal!
