GDB 78.0: Oilers Dominating on Home Ice (7pm MT, SNW)

Lately, the Edmonton Oilers have played the role of the Ford F-150 while visiting teams have played the animal unable to avoid the tires. They’ve been roadkill. The Oilers are 11-0-1 in the last 12 home games, and the loss came in a 2-1 shootout loss to Colorado. The Oilers haven’t lost while playing actual…

GDB 77.0: Oilers Improvement In Both Ends (6:30pm MT, SNW)

Much of the focus on the Oilers’ improvement under Jay Woodcroft has been about the reduction in goals against and the Oilers’ defensive play. It makes sense since both have improved, but the offensive improvement under Woodcroft has been equally as good. And I mean exactly the same.

GDB 73.0: Keep the streaks alive (8pm MT, HNIC)

There’s nothing quite like the pressure of a stretch drive to get the blood pumping, amirite? If the Oilers are going to be the best, they’ll have to beat the best and that makes tonight’s matchup against the Colorado Avalanche another important test. The last time these two clubs met up, the Oilers played very…

GDB 72.0: Keep the Ball Rolling (8:30pm MT, SN1)

There’s nothing left but pressure situations for the Edmonton Oilers and that goes even more so tonight when they square off against the Los Angeles Kings for a game that could see our boys pull ahead by a touch in the standings or fall right back into third place. These last few games of the…
