Oilers second-year forward Nail Yakupov has had his fair share of adversity and story lines surrounding him this season. However, he seems to be slowly progressing and is currently on a three-game point streak.
Yakupov credits his teammates and linemates with helping him through the tough times.
"I feel much better," said Yakupv. "It's all about the teammates, line mates who have helped me every shift. It's an easy thing when you see from the bench guys working hard and then you're doing the same thing and it's very simple and very easy to play because you see the guys fighting for each other and working hard, playing hard and we're scoring a lot of goals. It's a good thing and you try to keep going the same way."
