The Oilers defence was a raging brushfire on opening night

Don’t believe me?
As Chris Boyle, who knows a thing or two about goaltending. The Flames beat the Oilers 5-2 on Thursday night, and by Boyle’s count, four goals were about completely distressed defensive play:
It was a game that Calgary had no business winning, as the Oilers recorded an overall Fenwick of 62.7 per cent (60.7 per cent FenClose). The Flames didn’t have much of the play but they did plenty with what they had. And the Oilers helped them along quite well, as we can see.
To quote Ari Gold: “That’s awful.”
