Game Notes Kings @ Oilers: Pacific Division Playoffs

I love the passion of Oilers fans. Despite a rough 13-year stretch, you are still heavily invested in your team. Most of you have found a balance to enjoy the victories and critique the losses.

Game Notes Oilers @ Sharks: Draisaitl Best Start In The NHL In Years

Game Notes Devils @ Oilers: Coaching To Score

The best coaches find different ways to connect with players. It is much easier to get their attention when the team is winning or an individual is playing well. But the good coaches earn their stripes when individual players are slumping and they work with them to rediscover their talents. Right now Dave Tippett is…

GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Coyotes

The Edmonton Oilers opened the season with back-to-back victories over Pacific division foes the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings. They haven’t faced another Pacific rival until tonight against the stingy Arizona Coyotes. The Oilers are 8-4-1 since defeating the Kings on October 5th and they really needed a hot start considering how most of…
