Fasth pulled, Oilers struggling early in Calgary

2 Comments

Three goals allowed on six shots, and that was all for Viktor Fasth.

Fasth was pulled early in the first period, as his struggling Edmonton Oilers – that’s an understatement – fell behind their provincial rivals, the Calgary Flames, by three goals less than 10 minutes into the game.

Johnny Gaudreau – you may know him as Johnny Hockey – scored twice in a span of 16 seconds in the opening period. He’s up to 12 goals on the season, with six of those coming in the last three games.

Same old, same old for Edmonton. Fasth was pulled earlier in December and appeared furious with his teammates, as he unleashed a quick verbal tirade at the bench. That didn’t happen Saturday. Fasth appeared calm when given the hook.
