Edmonton - Dec. 8, 2014: In the grand scheme of things, Sunday’s 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks doesn’t mean much of anything when it comes to the Edmonton Oilers and their long suffering fan base but at least for night it was a distraction that was badly needed for everyone involved...ownership, management, coaches, players and fans.
