The Oilers do not capitalize on a golden opportunity to pull into the thick of the Smythe Division race before the all-star break.
Edmonton has not played well within the Smythe Division, has an 8-11-1 record in the Division, including 4-8-0 in the Northlands Coliseum.
Undisciplined play dooms the Oilers, as they took 5 consecutive minor penalties, killing penalties for a crucial 20 minute stretch of game that saw Winnipeg score twice to win
Bob Essensa was solid in net for Winnipeg down the stretch.  He saved 3 of 3 goalie rating draws in the third period and also a few high percentage shots corralled.
This was Vladimir Ruzicka's first NHL game.  He nearly scored on his first NHL shift, but Essensa robbed him on a shot that had a 60% chance of going in
