``It was a good feeling to get one in regulation. We're not doing anything the easy way. It would have been nice to win a couple games at the beginning of the homestand and give ourselves a chance to put something together. But it was nice to recover and get to .500 during this stretch.'' - Oilers coach Craig MacTavish after a 3-1 victory over Columbus on Monday night helped them finish 3-3 on a season-long six-game homestand.
