Edmonton coach Ralph Krueger is not happy at with all the penalties his Oilers are taking.
The Oilers have been shorthanded 24 times this season and while teams have been shorthanded more often, Edmonton is second only to Colorado in penalties per game. "All offens'ive kind of penalties," Krueger said of the second period penalties Saturday. "Sometimes when you get behind, you want things too much, then you are maybe over aggressive in the wrong scenarios." The young Oilers will make plenty of mistakes but hopefully they will start to take less penalties, especially in the offensive zone.
