TMR overnight line: Oilers come to town on a sour note

The Red Wings host an Edmonton Oilers team amidst a 3-game losing streak this evening (7 PM EST on FSD/Sportsnet West/97.1 FM), and the Oilers will be in a particularly bad mood this evening, as EdmontonOilers.com's Mark Ciampa notes:

A pair of goals early on set the Oilers back on Tuesday night in St. Louis and they could never recover, ultimately dropping an 8-3 decision. The Oilers goals were scored by Darnell Nurse, Milan Lucic and Leon Draisaitl, all in the third period, while Laurent Brossoit allowed six goals on 37 shots in relief of Cam Talbot.

"That game's indefensible on my behalf," said a fuming Oilers head coach Todd McLellan after the defeat. "In every facet of the game, we were second. It wasn't even close. Very, very concerned obviously at the way some individuals played tonight -- many of them."

It only took the Blues three minutes, 13 seconds to get on the scoreboard as the Oilers surrendered a goal on their first shot against for the second game in a row.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
