The score talks for itself. The Oil Kings came to play, and play they did. They were in a league of their own tonight, and obliterated any hope of a comeback.
It was amazing to see how spread out the Oil Kings were and how much speed they generated off their passing. They were basically free-wheeling into the Tigers zone at top flight and those little split second hesitations they do made it look like the Tigers were skating in cement despite their best efforts.
Edmonton's D are very big and fast and the small Tigers forwards are having a difficult time maintaining any type of forecheck. 5 of Edmonton's 6 defenseman all have NHL potential, and their goal-tender just signed with the flames. Good luck to any team that can penetrate that.
The Oil Kings were also putting on heavy pressure on the Tigers D, exactly the
opposite of what Saskatoon did and should have done in round one.
