BLOG: Caggiula's confidence is back

by Chris Wescott / EdmontonOilers.com Head Writer

There was a time, not long ago, that Drake Caggiula was not performing the way he wanted but the confidence is coming back for the rookie. Caggiula had himself a game Saturday night, scoring a goal and adding an assist in Edmonton's 4-1 win over Colorado at Rogers Place.

This performance came one game after another one-goal, two-point night in Colorado Thursday.

"I was going through a rough patch earlier," said Caggiula. "The last little while I've been getting some opportunities and now things are starting to click. Hopefully, I can keep it going."

Caggiula has been in the lineup for six straight games after being in and of it in the previous stretch. Saturday, Caggiula had two shots, a blocked shot and was 75% on faceoffs in addition to his two points. The forward also filled in on the top line when Patrick Maroon went down briefly to injury.
