Prior to Friday night's Stanley Cup playoff game against the Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers head coach Jay Woodcroft used his morning
Edmonton Oilers head coach Jay Woodcroft used his morning press conference to deliver a not-so-subtle message to the match's referees.
The Oilers possess the greatest power play in the NHL, and Woodcroft wants the referees to allow his club the opportunity to showcase that power play.
In the second game of the series, which the Oilers won 4-2, the Kings received one minor penalty.
In the first period, Leon Draisaitl scored the Oilers' lone power play goal with a shot that was assisted by Connor McDavid and Evan Bouchard.
As the two teams get ready to play Game 3 in Los Angeles, the first-round series is deadlocked at one game each.
The Oilers won Game 2 to square the series after the Kings won Game 1 of the series 4-3 in overtime.
The Kings have staged 2-goal comebacks in both games.Instead of having to play catch-up as they travel back home, the Kings want to set the pace.
