Game Day

We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot deliver in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game.

After losing to Tampa Bay last night in a 4-1 turd bath, the Oilers won't have much time to hang their heads as they must get right back to work against the red hot Florida Panthers. It's another early start (5:30pm MST) so if you're looking to play hooky from work then you'd best start working on that sore throat now.

Up and down, down and up. Anton Lander's hockey life in North America has turned into recurrent flight between Edmonton and California. In an interview with hockeysverige.se, he talks about his rough season, the constant travel between the NHL and AHL, the decision to let his wife and son stay in Sweden and the future when his NHL contract with the Edmonton Oilers expires.

"I know that my career isn’t over just because I don’t stay over here,” says Lander.

Among the things Peter Chiarelli might be shopping for are a veteran center, goaltender, and perhaps a winger, too. Beyond the NHL team, there is an extreme need at forward for the coming year, and we might see the Oilers make a deal to shore up that area of the pro depth chart. In our continuing look at what's bubbling under, here is the Central Division, and prospects of interest. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.

The Nation Network Notebook is a regular feature that rounds up interesting news, stories, and rumours from around the NHL that don't quite deserve their own article. 

The Tampa Bay Lightning are facing the reality of having to sell at the deadline, while their neighbors in down south Florida have rocketed up the standings after finally getting fully healthy. Also, Jonathan Toews is doing his best to put to bed the narrative that he's over the hill.
