Game Day Quick Hits: Oilers vs. Flyers

The Edmonton Oilers have won four of their last six. They are starting to play better, but unless they plan on scoring four goals per game, this group needs to tighten up defensively and the goaltenders need to be better. Laurent Brossoit will start his third consecutive game, for the first time in his NHL…


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…


Game Day Quick Hits: Oilers vs. Coyotes

The Oilers dance of mediocrity continues. Play brutal in St.Louis, rebound with a solid performance in Detroit, only to come out flat versus Buffalo before rebounding with a good effort in Boston.

Game Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Boston Bruins

Game Day Quick Hits: Oilers @ Blues

On paper, this is not a good matchup for the Oilers, and on the ice at Rogers Place last Thursday it did not go well for the boys in Orange and Blue. They will need a much smarter effort tonight in order to pick up a much-needed victory.


Game Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Dallas Stars

The major item today is a possible shakeup of the McDavid Line. Todd McLellan mentioned it as a possibility (via Reid Wilkins) and we’ll see. Jason Gregor wrote about exactly that yesterday. Edmonton has an early (EARLY) game today, perhaps the club will begin with the usual lines and then mix and match as the…
