Win Is The Goal For The Edmonton Oilers Tonight

from the CP at Sportsnet,

The task for the Oilers at home Monday night is simple — win a game.

"Everybody's counting us out, so there's no pressure on our end,'' Hyman said Sunday. "All the pressure flips to Colorado. They're expected to win now.

"For us, it's just about getting one and then go from there.''

The gritty winger, who signed with Edmonton in free agency last summer, and the Leafs were up 3-1 on Montreal in the first round just over 12 months ago before the Canadiens roared back with three straight victories — including two in overtime — to stun Toronto in seven.

"A lot of guys in (this) locker room have either been up or down heavily in series and seen a swing,'' Hyman added. "I got a first-hand view of it last year. I don't think anybody gave them a chance to come back in that series, and sure enough, they did.''

Hyman saw a straight-forward formula on the other side.

"It's hockey — you're not knocked out until you're knocked out,'' he said. "You've got to continue to plant that seed of doubt. It starts with one win.''

All the stereotypical quotes you could imagine here! Sometimes I wish hockey players could give us something new, but I guess we’re not reinventing the wheel here.

I’m not as sold on “Shoresy” as everyone else seems to be but it’s still very quotable.

I expect the Oilers to “run it up and fill ‘em in.”

It is an absolute joy to watch Nate MacKinnon play hockey.  Whatever he got fixed in his head after seeing a therapist, it worked.  He is the same bull that I remember when he played for Halifax and Jonathon Drouin and Martin Frk were his linemates.  They were so much fun to watch.
