Laurie Keindel, a Devon resident, has been decorating her sidewalks since the beginning of the pandemic with creative and interesting designs.

Her latest piece depicts a vivid Stanley Cup that neighbors can “hoist up” and take pictures with. Excelent idea! Keindel says his next project will be Monet.

Thanks for the submission!

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

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

But just as the Oilers are playing now, and as much as they beat the Kings in Games 2 and 3, there’s still a feeling on the Edmonton field that they haven’t heard the last one from Los Angeles.

The Kings have spent an entire season overcoming adversity and proving the skeptics wrong, so no one expects a white flag in Sunday’s Game 4.

“You get a pair and everyone is feeling good, but it’s a long streak and long playoffs,” said goaltender Mike Smith. “LA is a great team and we don’t take them for granted in any way.

“Obviously you gain confidence when you win, and you win like the last two, but those games are over now and we’re worried about Game 4. There’s a lot of work to do, we’ve only won two.”

Rob Kinsey and his wife Lana show their support for the Oilers in Game 3 of the team's playoff series against the LA Kings.

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

The electrical construction executive 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 some things roll behind your back, you’re going to have a great time.”

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

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

Kinsey, 45, and a longtime fan of the team, estimates he spent about $5,000 on flights, accommodations and two behind-the-seat tickets for the Oilers for Friday’s Game 3 and Sunday’s Game 4.

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

“The cost was half what it would be in Edmonton.”
