Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Right in time for Game 30 of the Kraken.

In the meantime, the Edmonton Oilers are in Climate Pledge Arena, and given the way Omicron is spreading like wildfire across the Canadian hinterlands, they might have to sleep next to the popcorn machine if things keep going the way they’re going. Just remember to not press your head directly against it, Warren.

McDraisaitl and their gaggle of clowns-IMEAN-The Oilers have been going through a bit of a rough patch; 4-6-0 in their last ten, and it should not surprise you that it’s been awhile since Connor McDavid and/or Leon Draisaitl have had cold streaks like they’ve had right now; leading of course to the kind of player that isn’t Connor McDavid or Leon Draisaitl being asked to play hero, and with guys like Zach Hyman on the mend and Jesse Puljujarvi currently dealing with The Thing What Upended Society, the Oilers are down a lot of pieces that could make that feasible.

Still, the Kraken have a lot of their own demons to overcome as they usually do every night, so let’s see if they can pull one out before half the holiday season is cancelled!
