BLOG: On the day after, Oilers reflect on non-goal

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

One day after being denied of what looked like a sure game-tying goal with 3.8 seconds left from certain camera angles, the Oilers were talking about moving on.

“We have to shake it off. If we spend too much energy and focus on that, it’s in the past right now. We have a new game tomorrow and we’ll focus on that for sure,” said defenceman Oscar Klefbom.

Coach McLellan added that he obviously wasn't happy with the call but felt it was important to compose himself.

“I may be calm on the outside and not so happy on the inside but there’s nothing we’re going to do to change it. If we’re asking our team to have composure and to park situations or plays that maybe go against us — bad calls. We have to do the same as a management team and coaching staff. We’re not happy but we can move on.”

The bench boss also played devil's advocate.

“There can be a debate. I know if I was an L.A. King I’d be saying the right call was made. It can go either way. The call’s done, it’s over, we’ve moved on. Nothing we can do to change it now.”
