The Oilers play the Canucks for the sixth time since October 2nd. They lost twice in the preseason, 2-1 and 3-2 and they've already lost three times in the regular seasons, 5-4 (SO), 2-0 and 3-2.
We've talked ad nauseam about their inability to defeat a western conference team. They are 0-8-1 while being outscored 35-17. It hasn't been pretty, so today we'll look at the "positives" of tonight's game.

The Oilers can't officially re-sign Jeff Petry until January, 2015, but when you look at the lineup, organizational depth and the potential free agent market it is obvious they must sign their 2nd round pick from 2006.

Do the Oilers have a losing culture?
The NHL is a results driven business, and right now it is impossible to say they don't.

The Oilers have scored first in eight of their 16 games, however, they've only held the lead twice after the first period. Another step in their development -- yes they still have a lot of steps -- will be learning to build off of a good start.
The Oilers are only 4-3-1 when they score first, tied for 24th worst winning % when scoring first, but the good news is that if they don't score first, the Ottawa Senators, their opponents this evening, are 27th with a .444 winning % going 4-2-3.
