The Edmonton Oilers defeated the Anaheim Mighty Ducks tonight by a score of 2-1 to win the Western Conference Finals. This means that they will now play one final series to try and win the Stanley Cup.
The game was crazy. At one point, the Oilers had 2 men in the penalty box, so the Ducks had a 2-man advantage, plus, they had just pulled their goalie to give them an additional attacker. That meant the Oilers had to defend the net with a 6-3 Ducks advantage. What a scramble, I think I held my breath most of the 3rd Period.
Now the Oilers need to rest up to recuperate from the flu that has been running through the team. Hopefully, the down time before the next series will not hurt the Oilers momentum.
On my way home, I did some horn honking and shouting at the top of my lungs in my car. I also called a few friends from Edmonton. One friend was just heading out the door to go to Whyte Ave and join the city of Edmonton in celebration.
