It’s Friday afternoon and that can only mean one thing — a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio to help you finish off your week with an hour of all things Edmonton Oilers. On this week’s show, we looked back at the season opener, ahead at tomorrow's Battle of Alberta, did another round of Ask the Idiots, and a whole lot more.
To kick off the podcast, we got started with a look at the season opener and what was our biggest takeaway from the first game against the Vancouver Canucks. Obviously, it wasn't a perfect game by any means but the Oilers were able to cash out a win that didn't look like a sure thing after Vancouver tied the game late in the third period. Whether it was Hyman's brilliant debut or the second pairing trying to stay afloat, the boys offered their early-season takes on what happened on night one and whether those first impressions are indicative of what's to come. Sticking with the opener, three of the four of us were at the game on Wednesday night so I asked them what it was like to be back at Rogers Place for the first time in 581 days. As you'll hear, the boys had plenty to say about what went well and what could have gone better after so much time away from the rink. Next up, we previewed tomorrow's game against the Calgary Flames and offered up our boldest takes as for what to expect for the first Battle of Alberta of the season.
