Oilersnation Everyday: The Edmonton Oilers are broken
3 months ago
The Edmonton Oilers lost again last night, making their record now 2-8-1 after eleven games.
Edmonton had a promising start putting 19 shots on Thatcher Demko, who was between the pipes for the Vancouver Canucks. Mattias Ekholm beat him with his first goal of the season. However, that was the only bright spot for the Oilers last night. Shortly after, the team collapsed, allowing two goals in just under two minutes after two mistakes. The rest of the night tilted in the Canucks favour as the Oilers fell 6-2.
The Oilers showed some flair in the third period, with Zach Hyman getting into a fight with JT Miller and Connor McDavid getting involved in scrums. Jay Woodcroft even saw the gate early after being ejected for making comments to the officials.
Last night certainly felt like rock bottom for this team. On today’s show, Tyler Yaremchuk and Liam Horrobin will show where this team is and what changes need to be made. Tyler was also at the game last night, so he will give us the perspective of what it was like inside the building.
What would you do to change the Oilers’ fortunes? Is it time to make a trade? Does Jeff Jackson need to drop the hammer and relieve Ken Holland or Jay Woodcroft of his duties? Should they consider calling up one of the two goaltenders in Bakersfield? Throughout the show, leave your thoughts in the Finning/CAT live YouTube chat.
