Will we see a marquee matchup tonight? The reigning Hart Trophy and Art Ross winner, Connor McDavid, versus the best defensive forward in the NHL, Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron has won the Frank Selke Trophy (best defensive forward) in four of the last six seasons. He finished second in 2016 to Anze Kopitar and was second…
Ryan Strome scored the game winner in Colorado on Sunday. It was his first goal in 23 games. “Maybe it will get the piano off my back,” he said post-game. Strome wasn’t the only Oilers carrying a piano, or monkey, on his back. Many Oilers are struggling through a goal-scoring slump.
The Oilers will look to snap their season-long six-game losing streak against the Colorado Avalanche who will welcome back Nathan MacKinnon from the Injured Reserve.
The Oilers are back at again this afternoon as they take on the Colorado Avalanche for the second of three meetings on the season. Will they avenge the loss from earlier this month? We shall see.
After a disheartening loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night, the Oilers are back in action this afternoon against the 31st place Arizona Coyotes. You’d think this is a game they’d have to win, right?! RIGHT!?
A Saturday afternoon game between the Oilers and Coyotes! Oh boy!
The Oilers have been the Golden Knights’ kryptonite this season. Despite the two teams being in reverse spots in the standings from where they were expected to be, Edmonton has beaten Vegas in both of the team’s first two all-time meetings this year.

Most expected the Oilers to be a playoff team, while most expected Vegas to play like an expansion team, but with 27 games remaining Vegas leads the…
The Oilers have shown many different deficiencies in their play throughout the season. It has been frustrating and disappointing. The harsh reality of the NHL in 2018 is that without consistent goaltending, you have no chance of winning. Through 54 games, the Oilers goaltending hasn’t been good enough. Not close.
The Oilers aren’t making the playoffs. Oilersnation is, sadly, too familiar with being out of the playoff race before Valentine’s Day, but let’s make one thing clear: Trading Leon Draisaitl makes no sense.
The Edmonton Oilers will be looking to wrap up their California road trip on a high note as they head into San Jose for a Hockey Night in Canada matchup against the Sharks.
For just the second time this season, the Oilers will face the team that took them down in last spring seven-game second round playoff series. We’ll be seeing a lot of the Ducks to close out the season, so hopefully, the Oilers can do some damage to their playoff hopes.
