Jets score three unanswered goals to beat host Oilers in season-opener (with highlights)
EDMONTON - It was, as the new captain of the retooled Edmonton Oilers so eloquently framed it, time to crack the seal.
So just what is it then that the Oilers have had under wraps since they were last seen in a regular season game? Well, for starters, they have their first loss of the season after dropping a 5-4 decision to the Winnipeg Jets at Rexall Place.
It was the Jets’ first regular-season visit to Rexall Place since March 29, 1996; the Oilers first season-opening loss since Oct. 3, 2009.
