GDB 37.0: Battle Boys Part Deux (8pm MT, HNIC)

At 2-11-2 in their last 15 games, the Edmonton Oilers are in desperate need of a win for both themselves and the city, and I’m wondering if maybe a nationally televised Battle of Alberta could be just what the doctor ordered? We’re only a few hours away from finding out. As I sat down at…

GDB 36.0: Make It Stop (7pm MT, SNW)

Everyone is tired of talking. Players, coaches, fans, and media. Heck the microphones are likely sick of it. Because nine games were postponed the Edmonton Oilers have only played six games in the past 32 days. They didn’t win any. They went 0-4-2 and there isn’t much joy in Oilerville.

GDB 35.0: We Are Back (8pm MT, CBC)

For the first time in 10 days, we’re finally back to talk about an Edmonton Oilers game day as the boys get set to square off against the Ottawa Senators as the late game on Hockey Night in Canada. Isn’t it weird to think about how this is only the 35th game for the Oilers…

GDB 34.0: Will Need A Complete Team Effort

The Edmonton Oiler were 3-6-1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2021. Connor McDavid played all 10 games. So did Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Tyson Barrie. All three of them, and Derek Ryan, are out of the lineup tonight as the Oilers face the hottest team in the NHL. On paper it doesn’t look promising, but…

GDB 33.0: Ranger Danger (5pm MT, SNW)

The last time the Edmonton Oilers met up with the New York Rangers, Connor McDavid scored the goal of the year to get the game to overtime before Draisaitl finished it off in the bonus frame. Now that they’ve dropped three straight and nine of their last 11 games, could a date with the Rangers…

GDB 32.0: Island Boys (12pm MT, SNW)

Happy New Year, Nation! I hope everyone had a good time last night, but now it’s time to put the coffee on and get ourselves set for the first meeting of the season between the Edmonton Oilers and New York Islanders. It’s not very often that the NHL schedule makers give us back-to-back excuses for…

GDB 31.0: The Devil is in the Details (11am MT, SNW)

We’re saying goodbye to 2021 with a matinee between the Edmonton Oilers and New Jersey Devils as these two teams will square off for their first of two meetings on the season. Happy New Year, everybody! In Wednesday’s loss to the St. Louis Blues, the Oilers looked about as rusty as one would expect them…

GDB 30.0: Getting Back to Work (6:30pm MT, SN360)

For the first time in nearly two weeks, we’re finally back for an Edmonton Oilers game day. Were all of you as pumped to see that the matchup against the Blues was actually going to happen after having the last four games postponed as a result of COVID? Seeing as Omicron is spreading like wildfire,…

World Juniors Preview: Team Canada vs Team Austria

Canada didn’t make it easy on themselves, but they found a way to claw back from a 3-1 deficit against Team Czechia in the first period to win 6-3 in the tournament opener on Boxing Day. Mason McTavish got the Canadians off to a perfect start with an early marker after powering his way towards…

World Juniors Preview: Team Canada vs Team Czechia

Team Canada came out of the gates flying in their lone pre-tournament game against Russia. In the preview for that game, one of the keys to victory was scoring early and putting the Russians on their heels. Well, that’s exactly what Canada did, scoring four goals in the opening 20 minutes against one of the…
