An usual 5 p.m. Oilers appearance on CBC could have Oiler fans busting a move like Kyle much earlier than usual on this sparkling Saturday. The only  two guys who could top Kyle Edward's performance on stage right now are Napolean Dynamite, best dance routine ever, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

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.
