The Edmonton Oilers’ skaters haven’t had much luck in following Connor McDavid‘s hopes in slowing down Ryan Getzlaf.

With injuries piling up to their defense, it might only get tougher against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 5.

Luckily, the last line of defense is working out through the first period, as Cam Talbot has been game against Getzlaf.

Sure, some of it might be on Getzlaf being off the mark. Still, Talbot made at least two other high-degree-of-difficulty stops against Getzlaf, but the game remains 0-0.

Keep those stops in mind if the Oilers can gut out a victory on Friday night.
