You think we would have learned our lesson last night about coming out flat? Final Score: 5-2 Lightning.
The Oilers take on the Lightning tonight and we’ve got another One Minute Men episode for you!
I don’t know what the Oilers did to piss off the NHL’s schedule makers over the summer but they’ve had one of the toughest roads through the early portion of this season that I can remember. After going up against the Cup champs last night and dropping a tough 4-2 loss, the boys are back…
Capitals 4, Oilers 2 post-game Oil Spills: Ugly start buries Edmonton’s chance to sweep season series
The Oilers got down 2-0 early and the Capitals didn’t look back, working their way to a 4-2 victory. The frustrating thing about last night’s game is how Washington’s fourth line did a big chunk of the damage early on and the Oilers couldn’t crack Washington’s backup goalie.
The Edmonton Oilers controlled much of the game against Washington, but a few timely mistakes and missed scoring chances cost them two points. They flew to Tampa Bay after the game and Mikko Koskinen will try for his fourth consecutive win tonight against a balanced Lightning lineup.
