The Oilers have won three straight. During this stretch, they’ve battled back from being down and they’ve overcome momentum swings in which the other team has tied the game. Their battle and confidence to face adversity are signs of growth in a team.
“It’s maturity, it’s character, it’s a new mix of guys, it’s everything and it’s a mindset that we’ve been able to put in place with our guys and good on them.,” Head Coach Dallas Eakins said. “They’re embracing it, they’re supporting each other. I’ll tell you, after these goals when a team come back or maybe you go down by one I don’t have to say a whole lot on the bench anymore. Excellent job by our players.”
Carolina tied the game three times, but the Oilers came away with the 6-3 win.
