Oilers coach Todd Nelson talked about having General Manager Craig MacTavish behind the bench with him as he coached the Oilers.
“It was nice having a guy with that much experience behind the bench with me, being able to consult with each other on different match-ups, line match-ups and strategies. It was a great experience for me.”
Overall, Nelson found a lot of positives as he started to get to know the Oilers a little better throughout the game.
“I saw a lot of positive things tonight. We have to focus on that and move forward. In overtime, they didn’t have a whole lot of quality chances until that last opportunity and I thought we did a good job in overtime just staying on top of the puck. I think we just have to focus on the good things, correct the things we have to get better at and just keep a positive outlook.”
