Game Notes Oilers @ Wild: Looking for Offence

It is probably unfair, but when I think Minnesota Wild hockey I equate it to boring. It likely isn’t reasonable, but I still envision them as a trapping team. It is ridiculous, but I haven’t been able to shake how I see them as an organization since they entered the NHL for the 2000/2001 season.


Game Notes Red Wings @ Oilers: Ride The Wave

The Edmonton Oilers enter tonight’s game against the Detroit Red Wings in first place in the Western Conference. Who knows how long they will remain on top, so enjoy it while you can. This evening the Oilers will be gunning to start a season 7-1, or better, for only the fifth time in franchise history….


GDB Game Notes: Flyers @ Oilers

The Oilers return home after a successful 3-1 road trip that ended with their first loss of the season in Chicago. The Oilers had some great chances in the first period Monday night to take the lead as Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid both found themselves in all alone on Corey Crawford, but they were…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Rangers

The Oilers are one of five teams still undefeated to open the 2019-20 season. They’ll look to keep their early-season streak rolling this afternoon as they head to Madison Square Garden for a matinee game with the New York Rangers.


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Devils

The Edmonton Oilers skate into New Jersey plush with confidence and looking to start a season 4-0 for only the fourth time in franchise history. The schedule maker gave them a slight edge as the Devils played in Philadelphia last night and lost 4-0. The Devils have been outscored 15-2 over their last seven periods…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Islanders

Some might say “It is only two games,” but remember it is rare the Oilers are 2-0 after two games. This is the only the third time in the last 11 seasons the Oilers started 2-0. They went 2-0 in October of 2010, but finished the month 3-4-2 and finished last in the regular season….


Game Notes: Canucks @ Oilers

The quest for a playoff appearance begins tonight for the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks. Both organizations are hoping they can make the postseason after years of being on the outside. The Oilers have only made it once in the past 13 years, while the Canucks have missed the past four seasons, and only made…


Game Notes Sharks @ Oilers: How does Koskinen Improve?

Since Cam Talbot was traded on February 15th, Mikko Koskinen has started 22 games. That is tied for the most in the NHL. I understand playing him a lot, but starting 22 of 23 games is overkill. If he was playing as well as Darcy Kuemper, also 22 starts, then sure, I could see the…


Game Notes Oilers @ Avalanche: Out of Playoffs Annoys McDavid

It is official. The Edmonton Oilers will miss the playoffs for the 12th time in 13 years. Terrible, pathetic, vomit-inducing — there are a variety of adjectives and terms you could use, but they all lead to frustration. The Oilers current run of ineptitude isn’t the worst in the NHL, but they are one year…


Game Notes Oilers @ Golden Knights: Depth Scoring Needed

The good news Oilersnation is the Oilers made it to April without being officially eliminated from the playoffs. The bad news is they’ve been unofficially out of it for a few weeks. If the Colorado Avalanche pick up a point tonight, or in any of their four games this week, the Oilers will be eliminated….
