McDavid calls out his team's poor goaltending following brutal loss to Canucks
Edmonton Oilers

Ladies and gentlemen, the Edmonton Oilers have completely unravelled. 

Late in another meltdown loss to the Vancouver Canucks last night, the Oilers' completely lost their composure, both on the ice and on the bench.

It really all started when superstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl went ballistic and went after Canucks star players JT Miller and Quinn Hughes.

Check it out:

Things got even worse after head coach Jay Woodcroft earned himself a game misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct. Woodcroft simply walked off the bench and left his team behind.

Check it out:


The Oilers would go on to lose 6-2 and fall to 0-3 against the Canucks so far this season. 

After the game Woodcroft had about a dozen excuses for his team's play and wouldn't really fess up to what he said that earned him a game misconduct. Just... this guy is cooked, you can hear it in his voice.

Check it out:

Excuse after excuse after excuse. Enough is enough. If you're gonna get heated and tossed from the game, at least own up to it. And call a spade a spade, your team's goaltending is awful. McDavid himself even commented on the team's awful goaltending and seems like he's had enough.

Check it out:

"No one's in here is saying, 'We've got to turn more pucks over, or give up more two-on-ones and three-on-twos.' But for whatever reason, they're going in. They're going in off us, they're going in every which way."

- Connors McDavid


Translation: "Make a f***ing save!"

In all seriousness, McDavid is not the type to throw blame around but it's clear that he's frustrated with his team's goaltending. Last night's game played out like so many have for the Oilers to start this season. They start off great, give up a bad goal early, get behind the 8 ball a bit and then never recover. Wash, rinse, repeat.

At this point would you be surprised if Woodcroft makes it through the work week? Thursday's showdown against the bottom feeding San Jose Sharks is going to be an absolute must watch game... y'know... if you like train wrecks.
