BLOG: Tightening up the defence

The Oilers want to shore up their defensive play after allowing six goals in Game 3

by Paul Gazzola /

Oilers forward Patrick Maroon commented on his team's defence Monday after they allowed the Ducks to score six goals against them in Game 3 on Sunday.

"It's just structure," said the Oilers winger. "it's easy fixes I think."

Rather than worrying about the Ducks and their set plays - which the Oilers got a glimpse of on Rickard Rakell's opening goal in Game 3 just 25 seconds in - the team wants to focus on what they are doing.

"For us, we got to continue what we're doing," said Maroon.

"We can't really stress on what happened last night or what happened in Game 2. I think for us, we got to find ways to play our game now. We got to play with that confidence that we played with all year and find ways to bounce back again. We've been a good bounce back team all year this year and this is a good time to do that in Game 4."
