Oilersnation is preparing for a Merry Clinch-mas!

The best time of the year is finally right around the corner and the Edmonton Oilers seem to be peaking at the right time!

At this moment, the Edmonton Oilers haven’t officially clinched a playoff spot… but it’s coming! Per Jason Gregor, they are on track to earn home-ice advantage and finish second in their division.

It’s like Christmas in Spring! I mean, it sure feels like it with this weather. Anyways, who would have thought two months ago that we would be in this position? I’m not going to lie, I was a little more than nervous.

As much as we love the playoffs, that means hockey is almost done!
