That's more like it :) Oilers win game 3

This was a pivotal game. Lose and they are down 3 games to none. Win and we are right back in it at 2 games to 1. And win they did, and they are still in this series. Carter Madson with 2 goals led the way along with the great goaltending by Brad Eisiness, stopping 33 shots. The 4-3 score was a hard fought battle with numerous scrums after the whistle. These teams don't like each other!

We did not attend the game ourselves, but listened to it on the EAGLE. Fans, you made some serious noise when we scored. Way to go! The announcer and his color man made numerous references to the team playing like a team, and not as individuals as the previous two games. That's what is going to win them the series.

The battle is far from over though. Thursdays game 4 is just as important as this game was. Your either behind the eight ball or in control. I'm sure Dan MacDonalds crew wants to be in control, coming back home on Saturday night for game 5.
