The stat sheet doesn’t record “energy level” but by watching Oilers winger Nail Yakupov, it was clear that he was trying to make things happen on the ice. Head Coach Dallas Eakins was pleased with the things Yakupov brought to the game tonight.
“I thought that line was one pass away from making something happen,” Eakins said. “Pucks were bobbling on him, there were some that went into his feet but I thought he was skating, I thought he was trying. He was energetic on the bench so I thought he had a good game.”
