Oilersnation Everyday: A vital road trip begins
2 months ago
The Edmonton Oilers head to the state of New York for a three game trip before their Christmas break. That trip begins tonight when they face off in Long Island against the New York Islanders.
The Oilers and Islanders have gone head-to-head once already this season. That matchup was Kris Knoblauch’s first as the head coach of Edmonton, following Jay Woodcroft’s dismal, and the Oilers won that game 4-1. Mathew Barzal opened the scoring, but the Oilers responded with four unanswered goals from Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid, Zach Hyman, and Evander Kane. Since then, the Oilers are 9-5-0 but have lost their last two games.
The Islanders have an 8-3-6 record on home ice this season. They have secured at least a point in their last eight home games, winning five. The last time they lost at home was November 11th versus the Washington Capitals when Alexander Ovechkin scored twice.
Getting back on track before Christmas is vital for the Oilers. To help you get set up for the action on the ice, Tyler Yaremchuk and Liam Horrobin go live at noon for Oilersnation Everyday.
