The Oilers reached the quarter mark of the season with a first place Pacific Division record of 12-8-1. They are seventh in goals per game at 3.05 and 14th in goals against/game at 2.57. Their EV scoring has been the biggest improvement. They have tallied 44 at EV, third most in the NHL.
They have made huge strides and for the first time in eleven seasons they look like a legitimate playoff contender.

The Edmonton Oilers had themselves a game against the woeful Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday. Not only did the team score six goals, but three prominent players who hadn’t been scoring much had strong nights offensively.
Were strong nights from Milan Lucic, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins a sign of things to come?

Of all the off-season acquisitions that Peter Chiarelli made this summer, I didn’t pay much mind to Matthew Benning. I figured he would be AHL bound and a call-up option down the road when injury was bound to strike. I did not give him the credit he was due.

The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article.
Happy thanksgiving to our readers south of the border.
