Painting the sidewalks Stanley
Devon resident Laurie Keindel has been gussying up her sidewalks since the beginning of the pandemic with creative and interesting designs.
Her latest piece depicts a vivid Stanley Cup that neighbours can come “hoist” and get their pictures taken with it. Awesome idea! Keindel says her next project will be Monet.
Thanks for the submission!
Oilers gear up for desperate Kings in pivotal Game 4
LOS ANGELES — From the outside looking in, the Edmonton Oilers are in total control of their playoff series with the Los Angeles Kings and the outcome is a foregone conclusion.
After all, what team gets scraped off the bottom of a shoe after being squashed 6-0 and 8-2 in back-to-back games and suddenly launches a comeback?
But, as well as the Oilers are playing right now, and as badly as they’ve beaten the Kings in Games 2 and 3, there is still a sense in Edmonton’s camp that they haven’t heard the last of Los Angeles.
The Kings made an entire season out of overcoming adversity and proving doubters wrong, so nobody is expecting a white flag in Game 4 Sunday.
“You win a couple and everyone is feeling good, but it’s a long series and a long playoffs,” said goalie Mike Smith. “L.A. is a great team and we’re not taking them for granted by any means.
“Obviously, you gain confidence when you win, and win like we have in the last couple, but those games are done now and we’re worried about Game 4. There’s a lot of work left to do, we’ve only won two.”
‘Just unbelievable’: Oilers fans make trip to L.A., celebrate playoff blowout
By Matthew Black
It was a Friday night to forget for most fans at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, but not for Edmonton’s Rob Kinsey.
The electrical construction executive and his wife, Lana, were among the Oilers fans who made the weekend trip from Alberta to Southern California.
“There were lots of Oilers fans,” he said the day after the team’s resounding 8-2 Game 3 win. “They were everywhere.”
“As long as you go with a good attitude and be friendly and let a few things roll off your back, you’ll have a great time.”
The scoreline may have helped, but the home fans were welcoming, Kinsey said.
“They were really good,” he said of the Kings fans. “We had nobody, not one person, who was anything but.”
Kinsey, 45 and a lifelong fan of the team, estimates he spent about $5,000 on flights, accommodations and two tickets behind the Oilers bench for both Friday’s Game 3 and Game 4, Sunday.
“It wasn’t too hard,” he said of securing the prime seats through Ticketmaster’s resale site.
“The cost was like half of what they would be in Edmonton.”
