With every point being very important heading into the last quarter of the regular season, the Edmonton Oilers can't afford to lose to non Playoff team's like Thursday night's match-up from Wells Fargos Center, losing 2-1 to the Philadelphia Flyers.

You couldn't blame Oilers goaltender Stuart Skinner who was unbelievable making 35 saves. But unfortunately for the Oilers they just didn't have the offence as well as Flyers goaltender Carter Hart was equally as good as Skinner Thursday night.

The Oilers goaltender had some huge praise for Hart after the game saying:

"He's a fantastic goalie,» Skinner said of Hart, «and I've been able to work with him a bit and become good friends. It's always fun playing against him, but it kind of pisses me off that he beat me.".



In a game that came down to a shootout, which I'm not a fan of, that was the difference a the 2-1 shootout win.

Oilers Head Coach Jay Woodcraft would also take post game:

"There are some positives to be taken out of that game,» head coach Jay Woodcroft said. «I thought our penalty kill was good again (three-for-three). Our goalie gave us a chance to win, and I think any time you hold the team to one goal (in regulation) that's a real positive.

«The better we can play defensively the more chances we'll have to win."

Next up for the Oilers are afternoon tilts set for Saturday in Ottawa and Super Bowl Sunday in Montreal, two games the Edmonton Oilers should definitely win.
