Preseason..Oilers 8 Grizzlies 1

Our Okotoks Oilers evened their Preseason record at 1-1 with a convincing win on the road against the Olds Grizzlies. The 8-1 win was a complete offensive turnaround from the previous night when the offence was missing a step.

Looks like the first period was quite offensive, as shots on goal favored the Oilers 17-15 and us outscoring the bears 3-1. The second period was even more impressive as the Grizzlies were outshout 11-6 and outscored 4-0. The third period was just icing on the cake as we scored the final goal, and continued outshooting the opposition 14-9.

Not too sure if or how many of the veterans played, but the offensive burst came at a time when the new players are trying to impress the coaching staff.

Next up is this Saturday at home against the Canucks.
