Gene

I got a chance to have a chat with Gene Principe and find out what makes the Prince of Puns tick. I used some of your questions and some from around Nation HQ to find out the history behind his pre-game segments, what keeps him going, who's the best Oiler to interview and some other stuff. Gene's the greatest and it was super cool of him to take the time to chat with me.

The Oilers wrap up their road schedule tonight in Phoenix. Only Buffalo has won fewer road games, 8, than the Oilers' 12. Florida's final five games are all at home, and if the Oilers do win tonight they will tie the Panthers with 13 road wins. 

Regardless of what happens tonight, this won't be the worst road season in Edmonton history.
