GDB Game Notes: Avalanche @ Oilers

After a four-game road trip through the Eastern United States, the Oilers are back in Edmonton for a Sunday night game against the Colorado Avalanche. Here are your game day notes.


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Panthers

The Florida Panthers finished last season on a high. They were 25-11-2 in their final 38 games. Only Nashville and Winnipeg produced more points. The Panthers made a serious run for the playoffs, but came up one point short. Many expected they’d continue their success this season. They haven’t. Not even close. The Panthers are…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Lightning

The Edmonton Oilers controlled much of the game against Washington, but a few timely mistakes and missed scoring chances cost them two points. They flew to Tampa Bay after the game and Mikko Koskinen will try for his fourth consecutive win tonight against a balanced Lightning lineup.


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Capitals

After losing their first two road games of the season the Oilers have picked up victories in New York, Winnipeg, Nashville, Chicago and Detroit. They will try to extend that tonight against the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals. They do so riding the hot stick of former Capital Alex Chiasson.


GDB Game Notes: Blackhawks @ Oilers

How are you feeling this morning, Nation? After the Oilers rattled off three straight wins against the Caps, Preds, and Blackhawks, they fell short against the Wild on Tuesday night and it left some folks feeling down again. For me, I’m seeing the Oilers rocking a 6-4-1 record despite wandering through the brutal hellscape that…


GDB Game Notes: Wild @ Oilers

Are the Oilers back to the team we saw in 2016/2017? The numbers suggest they very well could be. The Oilers won back-to-back afternoon games in Nashville and Chicago on the weekend and are now 6-3-1, and in the process, they have looked like a really competitive team. After a rough 0-2 start, the Oilers…


GDB Game Notes: Capitals @ Oilers

What an exciting 48-hour period for Oilers fans, with the previous three Stanley Cup champions in town. Pittsburgh, who won the Cup in 2016 and 2017, was here for an entertaining 6-5 OT victory on Tuesday and tonight the 2018 champion Washington Capitals are here. Tuesday’s game was very exciting and I think we will…


GDB Game Notes: Penguins @ Oilers

It is rare to have so many great centres in one game, but tonight’s tilt features three first ballot Hall of Fame players, although one of them has always been under-hyped. Sidney Crosby has been the talk of the NHL since bursting on the scene in 2005/2006, and Connor McDavid is the new face of the…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Jets

The Oilers wrap up their four-game road trip tonight in Winnipeg. The Oilers returned home Saturday evening after defeating the Rangers earlier in the day, spent two nights in their own bed, and then traveled to Winnipeg yesterday. They’ve logged just under 18,000 kilometres so far this season, and a victory tonight would make the…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Bruins

Coming off a lacklustre effort against New Jersey and travelling from Sweden, the expectation is the Oilers will struggle in Boston tonight. Despite a less-than-ideal start to the season, effort and schedule wise, the Oilers might have more confidence than you think when they face the Bruins tonight.


Game Notes: Oilers @ Devils

Hello Oilersnation, the regular season is finally here. Let’s get it on. Here are the usual short notes on stats, quotes, useless facts, analytics and more before every Oilers game.


Game Notes Golden Knights @ Oilers: Surprise storylines

The Vegas Golden Knights are the biggest surprise in NHL history. They are first in the Pacific Division with 109 points, fifth most in the NHL, have a 40-goal scorer in William Karlsson and four players with 60 points. All of them are having career years, and it will be interesting to see how they…
