It could be worse. We could all be Calgary Flames fans.
But that's one of the few silver linings I can find as the Edmonton Oilers lost their second straight game to the Toronto Maple Leafs, this time 3-0.
Edmonton had some bad breaks and weak goaltending, but the Oilers were also out worked much of the game.
There were no moral victories for Edmonton but perhaps it was a wake up call. The Leafs have raised the level of their game against Edmonton. Edmonton has so far failed to respond. Bruce McCurdy and David Staples of the Cult of Hockey dig in. By the Faithful. And for the Faithful.
