I’m not sure when Kevin Quinn of Sportsnet decided he’d start calling Nail Yakupov of the Edmonton Oilers Nye-eeeel Yakupov when he scores a goal, but we heard him bellow it twice in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets Monday.

The Oilers have faced an Eastern opponent in 10 of their last 13 games, and five of them weren't playoff teams, but tonight starts a stretch of eight games against the Jets, Bruins, Wild, Ducks, Wild, Blues, Kings and Blackhawks.
The Wild aren't in the playoffs, yet, but they are the hottest team in the NHL, 8-0-2 in their last ten allowing on 16 goals and are now only two points out of 7th/8th. The defending Champs, LA, have won four in a row and are within three points of 7th/8th, while the rest are playoff teams.
The Oilers are 9-10-2 with Todd Nelson, but the next eight games will be the toughest stretch off his brief NHL coaching career.
