It was a late #TankStrong push by Jultz, but not enough for Camp McDavid. Final Score: 4-3 Oilers.

The Oilers and Avalanche are out of the playoffs. The Avalanche haven't officially been eliminated, but their loss in Calgary on Monday pretty much sealed their fate. They are ten points behind Winnipeg for the final wildcard spot, so both of these teams will be playing for pride and some players will be auditioning for a roster spot at the World Championships.
Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall have all said they'd love to play for Canada, but will they make the team?

If you want to read about the last eight games of the Oilers' season against the Western Conference, who are licking their chops in anticipation of handing our local squadron their asses, this ain’t the article for you.
This is about decoupling our city's self image from our beloved Oilers until they can get their shit together and give us something to believe in again.
Consider yourself warned.

That the Edmonton Oilers are not a good team is not news. Three coaches (if we include Craig MacTavish’s five-game stint) have now tried and failed this season to get good results out of this roster. The question now is whether the third coach, Todd Nelson, should be back next season.

I don’t know about you, but I found myself fixated on Nikita Nikitin as he lurched around the ice shift after shift for the Edmonton Oilers on the way to a 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets at Rexall Place Monday. I was half-expecting a leg or an arm to fall off. Thankfully, no.
