Oilers try to bring D up to speed vs. Wings

The Edmonton Oilers have built a 6-1 record on the strength of their offense. With the Detroit Red Wings coming to town on Friday, coach Dave Tippett would like to see his team provide more assistance on the back end.

The Oilers defeated Philadelphia 6-3 on Wednesday despite allowing a whopping 52 shots on goal. Mikko Koskinen literally saved the day by making a career-high 49 stops.

"It wasn't a 6-3 game or a 6-1 game. The score was that, but it wasn't that kind of game," Tippett told reporters. "We've already talked about it as coaches -- this is a really good teaching one just because you can't play like that and expect to be a playoff team."
