The Edmonton Oilers took on the Vancouver Canucks on Monday. The Oilers have had a very poor start and are sitting 31st in the league. This game was no different as the Canucks would pull away in a 6-2 win.

During the game, both Oilers Superstars, Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, were playing particularly angry.


One play midway through the 3rd period, J.T. Miller lays a check on McDavid as he drives the net, McDavid retaliates with a crosscheck of his own. Miller responds and a minor shoving match begins where Zach Hyman jumps in and a line brawl ensues.



In their latest podcast, Missin Curfew hosts, Shane O'Brien and Scottie Upshall, are shocked to see the lack of response from the rougher Oilers players on Miller.


O'Brien says "...He's (Miller) playing McDavid hard...how J.T. Miller got out of that game without either Evander Kane, Warren Foegele, Desharnais, Nurse, got to grab him (Miller)."

O'Brien continues "...You can't let that guy leave the game...when you see as frustrated as Connor McDavid and Draisaitl are..."

The Oilers need a spark as the season goes on, they take on the the San Jose Sharks who have 1 win through 12 games. This could be a turning point to their season.
