BLOG: Oil Kings know what they have to do
The Edmonton Oil Kings lost the first two games of the WHL finals in Portland. Now that series comes home to Edmonton where the club has not lost a game all playoffs. After going down to the Winterhawks twice to open the series, the Oil Kings believe they know exactly what they have to do to get two wins and tie the series up.
The mistakes were preventable says Curtis Lazar.
“The first two games, we beat ourselves in a way. The majority of the goals Portland scored were preventable. They were turnovers that really cost us, getting down early in the games and just playing catch-up hockey. From this point on it’s just a matter of laying it all on the line. We’re going to learn a lot about our team in the next 72 hours. But it’s a matter of just believing in each other. I know we do that and hopefully get some good support from our home crowd as well.”
