Arcobello’s Night

In an otherwise dreadful Edmonton Oilers’ game where they were trounced and then mauled 6-2 by the Vancouver Canucks, Mark Arcobello made a good showing for himself last night. Cult of Hockey’s Bruce McCurdy had this to say about Arcobello in his Player Grades segment:

#26 Mark Arcobello, 6. Among the best of the Oil on this night, leading the team in both attempted shots (7) and, surprisingly, in hits (also 7). 4 of those shots were on goal, including Luongo’s best stop of the night when Arco was sent in by Eberle. I liked his smarts with the puck and his energy without it. Oilers outshot Vancouver 8-6 when he was on the ice, the only player on the team with this distinction.” — via Bruce McCurdy, Cult of Hockey

Well done, Mark.
