April 29, 1997

Ten years ago today, the Oilers returned to the playoffs for the first time since 1991-92. And man, they returned with a bang. They took out Dallas in seven games, and as you can see, in a thriller of an overtime game. Todd Marchant scores the overtime and series winner following an amazing save by Cujo.

Great memories! Let's hope the Oil will return next year with a bigger bang!!!

I particularly enjoyed listening to the howling coyotes. :) The boys will be back this year!

hahaha You're right. I never noticed that before. Hilarious!

Yup, our boys will be back. I have no doubt (okay a small doubt but that will be erased this summer, right KLowe??)!!!!
