GDB 48.0: Baby steps… (7pm MST, SNW)

Every player inside the Edmonton Oilers dressing room still believes they can make the playoffs. They have to, and they should.

Game Day Quick Hits: Oilers vs. Sabres

The 30th place Buffalo Sabres did the Oilers a favour last night defeating the Calgary Flames 2-1 in overtime.
