"I'm really proud of our effort," said Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock, who is 15-19-4 since replacing the fired Todd McLellan on Nov. 20. "We did a lot of good turns. We were coming on strong, on the power play (down) 3-2, but 30 seconds after the power play, we get scored on."
"We can't play this way and actually expect to win hockey games, not at this time of year. Quite frankly, not ever. Maybe in an exhibition game," Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock said.
