Call them the seventh man.

The Oilers want the Anaheim Ducks to feel Oil Country's wrath throughout Round 2.

"We want teams to think it's tough to play here," said Oilers forward Drake Caggiula.

After scoring just 25 seconds in then going up 3-0 in Game 3, the Ducks gave the Oilers fanbase few reasons to cheer early on.

"They did a good job early of trying to take the crowd out of it but our crowd stuck with us and kept cheering," said Caggiula.

The Oilers have played well in Rogers Place of late. The team won their final nine home games in the regular season and beat the Sharks at home in Games 2 and 5 in Round 1. They are 2-2 at Rogers Place in the post-season.

"As we got closer to tying the game, the crowd picked up its intensity and so did we," said Caggiula.
