Game Day

We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot deliver in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game.

Sooner or later, no matter where you come from, there is a point of no return. A moment in life when turning back, returning to the safe past, is no longer enough. When reaching a brand new day is not just something, it is the only thing. Challenges lie ahead, but they lie beyond Calgary city limits. Let's get it on.

One commonly cited statistic with regard to Patrick Maroon’s transformation in Edmonton is his goals total. After scoring 26 goals in 204 games with Anaheim, he now has 26 goals in just 63 games with the Oilers.

The other way of putting that is that after scoring 26 goals on his first 300 shots (8.7 shooting percentage) he now has 26 goals on his last 144 shots (18.1 shooting percentage). Normally, this sort of thing does not end well, but is there reason to think that Maroon could be an exception to the rule?

The Edmonton Oilers will close their six-game homestand on a five-game winning streak. They did not play well on Wednesday despite defeating Florida, and head coach Todd McLellan and the players are looking to respond with a much better effort.

However, the Oilers are focused solely on the Nashville Predators, and once again they need to take advantage of an injury-depleted lineup playing their second game in as many nights.
