Nail Yakupov scored the OT winner last night against the Phoenix Coyotes and naturally, celebrated. But it wasn’t an IN YO FACE type of celebration, it was a hey ya, cool guys, come here, we won the game kind of celebration. It was almost a non-celebration because it was so casual. Here’s a breakdown of what went down after his game winner.
So what did we learn? Nail Yakupov can score clutch goals and Derek Morris is an assole. Can everyone lay off Yakupov and the Oilers crew for a hot second and let them enjoy their wins? There have been so few of those in Edmonton for years and more than anything, the fans deserve to see this kind of enthusiasm. Stop confusing their excitement for arrogance. I absolutely adore what I’m seeing here and they make me want to tune in game after game. I’m drinking their Kool-Aid, why isn’t everyone?
