We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot delivery in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game.
There haven't been many games over the past years where I felt the Edmonton Oilers were an obvious favourite, but tonight they are. The Oilers' speed, size, goaltending and confidence will have them leave Vancouver with a 7-1 record.

The Edmonton Oilers are 6-1.
They are in first place in the Western Conference.
Connor McDavid leads the NHL in scoring with 11 points.
Many felt the last of those three was possible, but no one had the Oilers storming out the gate like they have. In their six wins they have outscored their opponents 25-11.
They are playing like a legitimate playoff contender, but there is one odd stat which stands out.

The Washington Capitals have been one of the best teams in the NHL for the past decade. They have the sixth most wins and points, scored the second most total goals and the third most power play goals. They are one of only four organizations to finish a season with 120 points, and only the second to have done it twice.
They led the NHL with 56 wins and 120 points last season. They had 121 points in 2010. The NHL has had eight seasons where a team compiled 120 or more points, and only three of them since 1978, with the Capitals doing it twice.

"I want to improve my puckhandling skills," replied Darnell Nurse last April when I asked him what he needs to work on the most in the off-season.
He mentioned other areas he was going to work on as well, but he felt his puckhandling skills needed to improve so he could become more of an asset.
Nurse's raw athleticism is what made him the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He's an outstanding skater, strong, highly competitive and mean, but at times during his rookie season he struggled making plays.
