The Oilers are hoping to bounce back on Tuesday when they meet the Minnesota Wild again.
“It would be nice. He’s playing some good hockey right now. We played him a couple nights ago and saw what we have to do and what we have to correct. We’re going to go in there and try to play a strong road game.”
“I think he’s found his game. He looks like he’s playing with a lot of confidence and once you get on a role and start feeling it, it’s hard to get off of that.”
“First off, they played a very strong game against us. One thing they were doing extremely well was finding guys in open ice off the rush so we worked on some of that today. They’re a team that’s playing well and make you earn everything that you get. We’re going to have to find a way to create some offensive opportunities. I think we want to do a better job with that.”
“It comes down to the simplest things where you have to get to the net and get shots through but they make you earn it and right now they’re playing extremely well.”
“In that game, as you mentioned, we didn’t generate a whole lot or have a whole lot of shots. We didn’t play that well but you have to give them credit as well.”
