On November 1st, the Stars and Oilers were tied with Chicago for first place in the western conference with 16 points. The Stars were 8-3, while the Oilers were 7-2-2. The Stars won their next three games and were sitting pretty at 11-3, before the wheels fell off. Now they find themselves on a five-game losing streak. The Oilers and Stars are once again tied in points, 22, but they are now tied for 8th place with St.Louis.
How quickly things can change in the western conference.

Oilersnation newest writer, Jason Strudwick, has signed a one-year contract to play with Sodertajle in Sweden. No truth to the rumour that he will be hosting hockey schools, but he'll likely put on a clinic of off-the-glass-and-out passes. All kidding aside, he’s already on his way to Sweden, but before he left I had a chance to catch up with him about his recent signing.

The Oilers scored nine or more goals at home for the 33rd time in team history last night, but it was the first time in almost 20 years that Oiler fans watched their team score nine at home. Jan 21st, 1992 v. the San Jose Sharks was the last time the Oilers tallied nine on home ice, while the last time they scored nine in any game was November 26, 1996 when they pummelled the Calgary Flames 10-1 at the Saddledome.

We used to see the MacBlender almost every second game, but tonight is the first time we'll see the Render, as Tom Renney hit BLEND and HIGH for the first time and came up with some new line combinations in the hope his offence can get out of neutral.

When the Oilers lost in Boston, Detroit and Chicago many felt it was a sign of how far they had to go to become a contender? Well then what about last night v. the Ottawa Senators?
