Overtime Issues?

When Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are going they are spectacular to watch in overtime but lately, they haven’t been able to find the finish. The Oilers have gone beyond regulation eight times so far this season winning twice in overtime and twice in the shootout while also coming out on the wrong end three…

Nielson’s Notes: Oilers-Senators Edition

The Edmonton Oilers have done a pretty darn good job bouncing back after losses so far this season but they’ve been equally as bad when it comes to getting 3the job done against weaker opponents. They have now left eight points on the board against the Wings, Wild, Kings and Senators, and I don’t care…

Nielson’s Notes: Oilers-Avalanche Edition

Don’t let a 4-1 loss ruin what as a pretty darn good road trip for the Edmonton Oilers. They come home with six of a possible ten points, and in my opinion, the six points they picked up were the most important ones available on the trip. Seven of ten would have been excellent but…

Surprise Surprise

It’s November 27th and the Edmonton Oilers have a four-point cushion atop the Pacific Division. To quote the great Clark Griswold, “If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”

Disappointing Defeats

It happened again. The Edmonton Oilers left two points on the table that they definitely should have had in a loss to the Los Angeles Kings. In a season that has had so many successes, the Oilers have completely laid an egg multiple times against the league’s basement dwellers.

Nielson’s Notes: Oilers/Sharks Edition

The Oilers picked up a very important win over the Sharks on Tuesday night. The two points are great but even more importantly it gets them off to a strong start on what is a very important road trip the club. Here are a few thoughts I had during the game, packaged together in the…

Into the Blue

We are now past the midway point of November and the Edmonton Oilers are still sitting atop the Pacific Division. McDavid and Draisaitl will get the majority of the credit with a few crumbs, rightfully so, also being tossed in the direction of Mikko Koskinen and Mike Smith.

The Mighty Pacific

When the calendar flips to November the Edmonton Oilers will be in first place in the Pacific Division. Be happy, be very happy. This team is not perfect and the vast majority of their success is because of just a handful of players, but they have 19 points in the bank and you can’t take…

A Third Wheel for the Second Line

There has been a lot of discussion about the lack of offence from the Oilers bottom six but if you look a little bit deeper you’ll see that the issue actually starts with the second line.

As we near the end of the opening month of the 2019-20 season, you can’t help but be excited by what Dave Tippett’s Oilers have accomplished so far. Here are a few notes and storylines worth discussing.

Early Returns

The Edmonton Oilers returned home from their first road trip of the season with six of a possible eight points and an overall record of five wins and one loss. You’ll take it.

Prediction Time

If you want to be the guy who starts dropping I-told-you-sos in February then you better damn well be the guy who lays it all out there in October. The best part about predictions is that not many people actually remember the ones that don’t come to fruition. It’s kind of a win-win situation with…
