Another close game, but the Oilers come out on the short stick as Drumheller defeats our Oilers 2-1. After Curtis Leinweber makes it 1-0 in the first, Drumheller ties it on the PP near the end of the period and the teams go into the second tied.
The second period was all Oilers, as we smoked the Dragons with 19 shots on goal. Brad Eisiness even stops a penalty shot, but both teams fail to score, and into the third we go.
Only 2 penalties called in the third, both to the Oilers, but the Dragons did not need the PP as they scored with about 7 minutes left in the game. We only had 4 shots on goal and were unable to sustain any pressure. Result: a 2-1 loss and down 3-1 in the series.
So it's back home on Saturday night. Take it one game at a time, and win the home game first. I for one don't want the season to end quite yet. I still have a month of hockey excitement left in me. Can the Oilers stay alive ???
