Oilers reach .500 mark, single garbage can kicked over on Whyte Ave in celebration


Does anyone here know what .500 hockey is? It’s when you’ve won as many games as you’ve lost. For the 2007-08 Oilers, it means they’ve dug themselves out of a mighty hole this season. They’re 9-4 in their last 13 games, and are playing some decent hockey. Granted their strategy seems to be “get us to a shootout and it will handle itself,” but at least there’s a plan! Plus, they can ride this shootout supremacy all the way to the Cup finals.

Wait, what do you mean there are no shootouts in the playoffs?
