It is only 14 games into the regular season, but once again the Oilers find themselves in familiar territory, a place that none of them or any of their fans want to be, battling for the basement.
Very few expected it to be this bad this early, most realistic fans expected no playoffs, but the Oilers are teetering on the brink of being in 30th place once again. The Oilers can play well for 50 minutes, but they continually make some egregious error that leads to a goal, and ultimately costs them the game.
Will tonight be any different?

The Edmonton Oilers weren’t very good against Boston on Thursday night, and a big part of the problem was an inability to hold their own blue line.

The Oilers last win in Boston was almost 18 years ago to the day. On November 7th, 1996, the Oilers spanked the Bruins 6-0. Curtis Joseph made 25 saves for the shutout. The Polish Prince, Mariusz Czerkawski, scored a hat trick, all at even strength. Kelly Buchberger had three assists and a fight.
It was a rare victory for the Oilers in Boston. The Oilers are 7-23-4 during their 35-year existence on visits to Boston, so a win tonight would be the ultimate surprise.
