Tyler Pitlick and the Oklahoma City Barons had a big night Friday as the offense got rolling in AHL action against the Texas Stars. Elsewhere, Oilers prospects continue their seasons across North America and Europe. Strong performances in junior from Greg Chase, Jackson Houck and Darnell Nurse highlight the week.

I say, kick em while they're down. Final Score: 6-3 Oilers.

I realize that when you've been the worst franchise for the past eight seasons there are no easy games, and even though the Carolina Hurricanes are still looking for their first victory of the season, this is not an easy game for the Oilers. It is, however, a game they should win.
The Canes aren't that good, and they are playing even worse lately, including a loss last night in Calgary. The Oilers didn't take advantage of a fatigued Calgary team in their season opener, and they can't let two points slip through their fingers tonight.
