While it isn’t technically over, last night’s miserable showing against the St. Louis Blues was the unofficial end to the Oilers’ season. The Oilers got completely slammed over the course of 60 minutes by a good team driving in playoff mode. This team just isn’t good enough.
Viva Las Vegas! After a gritty 3-2 overtime win in Arizona last night, the Oilers will finish off their back-to-back in the desert with a date with the Golden Knights. Here are your game day notes.
The Oilers are in Arizona tonight to begin a back-to-back set of games in the desert. Here are your game day notes.
There’s been a storm cloud looming over the Oilers organization this season. With the climb looking insurmountable and the clock ticking quickly, it appears the Oilers are going to be on the outside of the playoff picture looking in yet again. With each passing loss, poor performance, and sleepy game in front of a frustrated…
We’re back! The Oilers had themselves a nice little streak going that pulled them back into the playoff mix, but, in traditional Oilers fashion, a swift kick to the pills by the New Jersey Devils pushed the team back one large step. But we’re here enjoying the rollercoaster.
Last night was a must-win game. The Oilers, as I discussed on Tuesday, are blessed with an easy schedule down the stretch. But no games in the NHL are ever easy, automatic wins, especially when you come out as flat as the Oilers did last night.
On this day 21 years ago, a group of 38 local investors banded together to purchase the Edmonton Oilers and stop them from potentially moving to Houston. Happy Anniversary to the EIG! If not for you stepping up, the Oilers very likely wouldn’t exist right now.
It’s March and the Oilers are playing meaningful games. They have 69 points through 69 games and they’re in the mix for a playoff spot, while that certainly doesn’t meet expectations we all had for the fourth seasons of the McDavid era, it’s nice.
The uphill climb continues. The Oilers got themselves back into the win column last night with a gritty win over the New York Rangers, pulling them to within five points of a playoff spot with a game in hand.
The Oilers are one win away from setting a new season-high with five-consecutive wins. In their way are the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team who hammered them in the middle of their otherwise-successful road trip last week.
The Oilers hung on for a 3-2 win over the Canucks last night, extending their winning streak to four-game, which matches their longest run of the season. Unfortunately, all the other teams they’re chasing in the Western Conference playoff race also won, so the Oilers just stood their ground.
The Oilers are playing the Canucks tonight so, in cool, trendy Vancouver fashion, we hit up a thrift shop to see if we could find some hidden treasures.
