Just like that, this series is heading back to Dallas with the two tied at two games each, as the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Dallas Stars 5-2 in Game 4. We have ourselves a best-of-three.  For only the fourth time in 16 postseason games this season, the Oilers allowed the first goal, as the Stars defenceman flipped an area pass over the head of Kulak, finding Wyatt Johnston in a 2-on-1 scenario. He made no mistake beating Skinner above the glove for the opening goal. EDM DAL G4. May 29, 2024.

That’s life in the playoffs when you can’t stop shooting yourselves in the foot. I started this week’s podcast with a quick recap of our trip down to Dallas and how it was a welcomed change after spending the first two rounds in Los Angeles and Vancouver. Unlike our first two stops, the people in Dallas were incredibly friendly and seemed almost amazed that we would fly all the way to Texas to watch the Oilers ..read more
