It's pretty remarkable when a modern-day Oilers player can break a record set by one of the legends from the dynasty years of the 1980s, but that's exactly what Cam Talbot achieved on Thursday. Talbot earned his 41st victory of the season as the Oilers doubled up the San Jose Sharks 4-2, surpassing Grant Fuhr's record of 40 during the 1987-88 campaign. There was plenty of social love for Talbot after he set the new franchise mark.

The Oilers trailed the Sharks 2-1 heading into the third period of Thursday's game in San Jose, but Milan Lucic solved that problem with three consecutive goals for his third-career hat-trick and second of the natural variety. Our favourite GIFs of the week are dedicated to the big winger's huge game that also included a thundering hit earlier on.
