Devon resident Laurie Keindel has been decorating her sidewalks since the pandemic began with creative and interesting designs.

His latest piece depicts a glowing Stanley Cup that neighbors can come “hoist” and have their picture taken with it. Brilliant idea! Keindel says his next project will be Monet.

LOS ANGELES — From the outside, the Edmonton Oilers are in complete control of their playoff series with the Los Angeles Kings and the outcome is a foregone conclusion.

After all, what team gets the bottom of a shoe scratched after being crushed 6-0 and 8-2 in back-to-back games and suddenly throws a comeback?

But, as good as the Oilers are playing right now, and as bad as they beat the Kings in Games 2 and 3, there’s still a feeling in the Edmonton camp that they haven’t heard the last from Los Angeles.

The Kings have spent an entire season overcoming adversity and proving doubters wrong, so no one is expecting a white flag in Game 4 on Sunday.

“You win a few and everyone feels good, but it’s a long streak and a long playoff,” goaltender Mike Smith said. “LA are a great team and we don’t take them for granted in any way.

“Obviously you gain confidence when you win and win like we did in the last two games, but those games are over now and we are worried about game 4. There is still a lot of work to do, we only won two.”

It was a Friday night to forget for most fans at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, but not for Rob Kinsey from Edmonton.

The electrical construction manager and his wife, Lana, were among Oilers fans who made the weekend trip from Alberta to Southern California.

“There were a lot of Oilers fans,” he said the day after the team’s resounding 8-2 victory in Game 3. “They were everywhere.”

“As long as you go with a good attitude and are friendly and let a few things roll off your back, you’ll have a great time.”

The score may have helped, but the home fans were welcoming, Kinsey said.

“They were really good,” he said of Kings fans. “We didn’t have anyone, not a single person, who was anything else.”

Kinsey, 45 and a lifelong fan of the team, estimates he spent about $5,000 on flights, accommodations and two tickets behind the Oilers’ bench for Games 3 and 4 on Friday, Sunday.

“It wasn’t too difficult,” he said of securing prime seats through Ticketmaster’s resale site.

“The cost was like half of what they would be in Edmonton.”
