Linus Omark made his initial Oilers debut in a memorable game several years ago against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Omark's spin move at centre ice prior to scoring a shootout goal helped lead Edmonton to the win.
"It seems like it's always the Lightning," Omark laughed.
Yesterday, coach Eakins stressed that Omark needs to buy in to the team's defensive strategy to stay on the team. That was something that Omark acknowledged today.
"I need to play my game, be responsible with the puck on defence too," he said.
