The Edmonton Oilers' 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks in Game 3 of their second-round playoff series was a gut-wrenching affair, and superstar Leon Draisaitl'sfrustration was palpable in the post-game interview.


"Post is not good goaltending"

When asked about the Canucks' goaltending and the five shots that hit the post, Draisaitl's response was dismissive of the stellar performance put forth by Vancouver netminder Arturs Silovs. "Post is not good goaltending," Draisaitl remarked, seemingly throwing shade at the 23-year-old Latvian goalie.


Despite Draisaitl's dismissive comments, Silovs' performance was nothing short of remarkable. The rookie goaltender has already etched his name in Canucks history, recording the sixth-most playoff wins in franchise history. Will these comments come back to haunt Leon?
