BLOG: Oilers prevailed despite the odds

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers came into Buffalo on difficult circumstances, having played the night before in Boston. But Coach Eakins felt that the team managed to put all that aside to play a very good game, with a 3-2 win and 52 shots on goal.

"Sometimes these things don’t set up very well. You’ve lost a few in a row and you’re coming in to play a team that’s struggling and you’re playing back-to-back," Eakins began. "The odds aren’t lining up very well for you. But I thought our guys were excellent tonight. I thought that not only did they play well, they had great energy on the bench when we got down. They all took a deep breath and got back to work."
