[ Cheering and Applause ] >> Michaela [ Inaudible ] >> Renee: minnesota secured a 4-1 win in a pivotal game, three against boston last night. They now lead the playoff series 2-1. Game four is scheduled for tomorrow night. And joining me today is hailey mcgoldrick, hailey thank you for being here. Minnesota won a pivotal game last night, what stood out to you. >> I think the biggest thing is taylor, she's obviously was incredible and the number 1 pick for a reason. She is leading the pwhl playoffs with 20 points, she has five goals in our last four games. She is just so incredible and heated up in a serious, she found her footing at the end of the toronto series and now has been incredible for the team. I think that minnesota has really found the chemistry as well, they are not relying on just taylor, michaela got a goal as well and nicole hensley has been playing an incredible net. They are just really finding their rhythm and it's another when away from the winter cup. >> Renee: do you think boston can come back. What did they have to do to take this to game five? >> I think the biggest thing for boston is they have so much talent what they cannot go down early. They were down to nothing, they got one go back but they were still in the deficit. They ended up losing the game 4-1 and they cannot let minnesota be the one to score first. And on like you said minnesota has talent to but I think that you see boston take a game in a series, it's not like minnesota -- boston is capable of winning but they really struggle when it comes to being down. They just scored one goal and that's not good enough against the minnesota team that's really clicking. >> Renee: speaking of minnesota they will have home ice advantage tomorrow, do you think they could take the series? >> I think so. I think they're an incredible team and you have to look at -- toronto picks them because they were the fourth seed, toronto handpicked the team. Minnesota came from a to nothing deficit in that series, 13 games and now they clench on home ice. And they are such a rich hockey history in minnesota as well, spee-mac you so that the minnesota whitecaps of the nw hl. And three of those players are currently on the pwhl roster, there such a rich culture of hockey. I think winning on home ice would be special and they deftly have the talent to do so. >> Renee: all right hailey mcgoldrick, thank you so much for your time today we appreciate it. >> Thank you. >> Renee: the edmonton oilers are back in action for game to a series against the dallas stars after a nailbiting double overtime win on thursday.

Logos and even fans from this year's playoff opponents. And effort that's delighting the neighbourhood. >> When I take my grandsons passed it, they call it the oilers' sunny scary. So thank you to the neighbours. >> Reporter: most fans support the and blue, some or able to travel. He's taken his brand of boiler funny scary to la vancouver. >> The dallas fans are very welcoming -- welcoming, I was a little relieved compared to vancouver. >> Reporter: known for his face paint and head to two oilers paraphernalia, he learned a lot but how he received opposing arenas. >> You can have your lights on, you can't wear you're hat, -- it's a no fun police in la. In tampa bay you can't buy a beer if your faces painted. >> Reporter: it was all-star team for the american arena, a double time over -- feels lucky to have witnessed. >> The boys were buzzing, I was pretty impressed. I am not scared of dallas anymore who are the big bad stars. >> Reporter: it was a strong

outing especially for the oilers red-hot penalty kill. Brushing off a dub or minor as they began with david in the box for four agonizing minutes. >> Really long, really long. Miserable.
