GDB 30.0: Need two in the Six (5pm MST, SNW)

After losing a heartbreaker in their last meeting, the Oilers land in Toronto looking to avenge that loss, get themselves on a winning streak and walk away with four points in a back-to-back situation for the first time this season.


GDB 28.0: Home Horrors (7:30pm MST, SN1)

The Oilers are 5-8 at home this season. They’ve been outscored 49-40. Their home PK is a dreadful 57.8% (16 goals on 38 kills). They’ve scored first only five times. Their PP has been a solid 20% (8 of 40) and they have out shot the opposition 494-414, but slow starts and sieve-live penalty killing…


Games Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames

The injury to Cam Talbot is a bitter pill for Edmonton Oilers fans, and points to a major problem for this hockey club: Depth. Along with a lack of balance, it is a key issue and surely will be discussed a lot over the summer. Both Peter Chiarelli and Todd McLellan have talked about this…


GDB 27.0: Desperado (8pm MST, CBC)

If you’ve looked at the standings this morning, you know this is a dire time for the Edmonton Oilers 2017-18 season. The Oilers are No. 7 in the division and seven points behind the Calgary Flames as we enter play this evening, and it could be five points or nine by the time the clock…

Game Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Boston Bruins

The Edmonton Oilers arrive in Boston today with about 30 percent of the season complete. If we were to write a country song about this campaign, I’d recommend stealing the line “the money ran out and the engine blew” or “are we rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell?” but your mileage may vary….


GDB 23.0: Waste not, want not (5pm MST, SNW)

A loss tonight in Buffalo would basically waste the good effort the Edmonton Oilers had in Detroit on Wednesday. They can’t afford it. The Sabres have lost seven games in a row, two in overtime and five in regulation. They are struggling, but the Oilers can’t take them lightly. Edmonton is not good enough to…


GDB 22.0: Nowhere to go but up, right? (5pm MST, Sportsnet)

The Oilers got pounded last night in St. Louis for arguably their most painful loss of the season. Thankfully, the team is in Detroit tonight so they have an opportunity to quickly wipe the slate clean and make everyone forget about what just happened. But in the same vein, they also have an opportunity to…
