Oilers Win 4-3!!!

        "The manner in which the Edmonton Oilers ousted the top-ranked Detroit Red Wings was almost as remarkable as the upset itself.  Ales Hemsky scored twice in the final four minutes as the Oilers rallied for an astonishing 4-3 victory over the Red Wings in Game 6 of their NHL Western Conference quarter-final before a frenzied crowd of 16,839 at Rexall Place on Monday.
       
         Trailing 3-2, Hemsky tied it with 3:57 left in the third period and won it with 1:06 remaining on a dazzling give-and-go with Sergei Samsonov. Hemsky stickhandled into the offensive zone and dished the puck to Samsonov before converting the return pass for the winning goal.
Edmonton took the best-of-seven series 4-2, despite being outshot 238-156 and trailing Detroit by 29 points in the standings.

        ""I haven’t seen anything like that," said Edmonton goalie Dwayne Roloson."The place erupted. It was unbelievable."  Roloson, who was a trade deadline pickup, is now an Edmonton hero after finishing the series with steady play and 211 saves."
