Game Notes Rangers @ Oilers G10: Kevin Lowe Night

Since the NHL expanded to 21 teams in 1979/1980, no NHL player has won more Stanley Cups than Kevin Lowe. He won five with the Edmonton Oilers (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988 and 1990) and one with the New York Rangers (1994). He, along with Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson and Bryan Trottier have each won six…

Game Notes: Predators @ Oilers G9

The Edmonton Oilers have won eight of their first nine games of a season once, in 1985-1986. They won their first five games, then lost game six before winning the next three. They could match that tonight with a victory over the Nashville Predators.

Game Notes: Kraken @ Oilers G8

The Edmonton Oilers and Seattle Kraken will meet for the first time tonight. The Kraken lost 3-1 at home to the New York Rangers last night, and they are now 3-5-1 on the season.

Game Notes: Flyers @ Oilers G6

After four days off which consisted of golfing, watching an NFL game and having two practices, the Edmonton Oilers look to extend their season-opening winning streak to six games tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Game Notes: Oilers @ Golden Knights G5

It is only game five of the season, but tonight is a big game. Vegas has dominated the Pacific Division since they entered the league in 2017/2018. They’ve amassed 372 points in that span, fourth most in the NHL, which is well ahead of Calgary (328), Edmonton (320), San Jose (319), Anaheim (295), Vancouver (287)…

Game Notes: Oilers @ Coyotes G4

Mikko Koskinen will make his first start of the season tonight in Arizona. He did play 27:42 on Tuesday against Anaheim, after Mike Smith left with an injury, stopping 20 of 21 shots and was credited with the win. Koskinen won his first three starts in 2018/2019, his first five in 2019/2020 and went 2-3…

Game Notes: Canucks @ Oilers G1

The Edmonton Oilers are a good team. How good remains to be seen, but after years, heck decades, of being a non-contender, the Oilers are once again a legitimate playoff contender. After one year in the all-Canadian (North) division, Edmonton returns to the Pacific Division and with Vegas, Vancouver, Calgary, Los Angeles, San Jose, Anaheim…

Game Notes Oilers @ Jets: Win One

The Edmonton Oilers are now in a must-win situation. It might be too late as they trail the Winnipeg Jets 3-0 in their opening round series after blowing a 4-1 lead in the third period and allowing three goals in 3:03. Edmonton had played excellent for the first 51:11 until Josh Archibald, who has been…

Game Notes: Oilers @ Jets, Game 3

After getting shut down in the first two games of the series in Edmonton, the Oilers are now in Winnipeg facing an uphill battle with back-to-back games on Sunday and Monday. Tonight is a must-win.

Game Notes Jets @ Oilers: Set the Tone

Winnipeg won game one because they were able to dictate more how the game was played. Edmonton was unable to play to its strength — create off the rush. Edmonton can play better offensively and if they do tonight they will have a much better chance to win. They didn’t create many second and third…

Game Notes Jets @ Oilers: Playoff Hockey Arrives

Finally. The 2021 NHL playoffs arrive in Canada as Edmonton and Winnipeg begin their first round series tonight. After four evenings of watching the American divisions do battle, the Oilers and Jets are even more amped up to get going. Players on both sides admitted the wait intensified their excitement and I expect both teams…
