After the Edmonton Oilers tied the series with a 5-2 win in Game 4 over the Western Conference finals against the Dallas Stars, the Sportsnet panel dove into the post-game analysis.

Kevin Bieksa, who was the recipient of the best Canadian sports analyst and never one to shy away from speaking his mind, took the opportunity to lay into the Edmonton Media.
The panel zeroed in on the performance of Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse throughout the series, especially his resilience in Game 4 despite all the media scrutiny. Nurse has been under the microscope for his horrific playoff performance, especially given his hefty $9.25 million AAV contract.
Bieksa, the former Vancouver Canuck and Anaheim Duck, known for his outspokenness, didn't hold back in sharing his thoughts, even if they didn't align with the mainstream view.
Darnell Nurse, you think about his day, his morning. He gets to the rink, and he has to meet with the Edmonton Meat, that's what I call the media because they're raw, dead and dumb.'

As coach Kris Knoblauch said, Nurse has his best game of the series. He had a record-setting 12 hits including the block which led to Mattias Janmark's go ahead shorthanded goal. It came hours after the media criticized him for not facing the music that morning and owning up to his mistakes in front of the cameras.
The Oilers managed to crack Jake Oettinger's wall with five unanswered goals, evening out the series at two games each. Now, all eyes are on Game 5 in Dallas this Friday, where the Oilers will look to gain the upper hand and push closer to clinching a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.
