Sunday Scaries: Good Week I’m Not Afraid Of Jack Campbell Anymore And Nuge Is On Fire
The Oilers started the week with a swing and a miss in Los Angeles, which wasn’t pretty to see, let alone at 8:30 pm when all I wanted to do was go to bed.
Those who say never go to bed angry have never had a relationship with the Edmonton Oilers.

Moving on to Anaheim, and if you’re a Ducks fan, why would you be? Kennedy has one for you:
The ducks should have a 6-2 stomach for this loss.

And they should be, however from my understanding the fanbase is all about tanking for Bedard. If my team was THAT disappointing, I’d be on that bandwagon too.
After this, devastation hit my life. The gang went to Vegas without me.

After this game, I feel confident in saying that Jack Campbell is on his way back to being the Jack Campbell we signed to a $5 million dollar contract. In his last three games, he has had save percentages of .900 and higher. All to his own credit because last night especially, our defense left him hanging on multiple occasions. Regardless, the Oilers found a way to come out on top winning 4-3, with Mattias Janmark opening the scoring and Leon scoring two, surely because Kennedy was around.
Klim Kostin got on the board AGAIN (a trend I love to see).
There was a lot to like about this Vegas game, and winning three in a row is the best of all. We’re back in this bitch, for real this time 🤞🏼. Oh and say hello to Vinny Desharnais, he’s another big guy we definitely needed on this team.
- Our defense had been a clear problem, and it needs to be addressed NOW, no more sitting around waiting for the takeover trade deadline. If we want to make the playoffs, this move must be made as soon as possible.
- No pointing fingers because our entire defense has been rubbish, but Bouchard NEEDS to be more accountable and just better at his own goal. I’ve seen it being the direct cause of too many goals in recent memory, not a good look.
- Death penalty. After the Los Angeles game, this is a huge red flag for me.
- We have to keep winning. Consistency from here on out will be the only thing that gets us to the playoffs. This could easily be a turning point for our season, and I hope it is because I plan to rock the Edmonton playoffs again this year.
- Nuge, not for me, but for other teams. This guy is going absolutely nuts this year and in my (non-)professional opinion he is one of the most underrated players in the NHL, if not the most underrated. Kostin is also on my list, but I’m biased, so do with it what you want.
- Playing Tampa Bay on Thursday, because hey, it’s Tampa Bay.
