Game Notes Oilers @ Canucks: Just Win

The Edmonton Oilers can give themselves a wonderful early Christmas present tonight if they can defeat the Vancouver Canucks — ideally, in regulation. The Pacific Division is very tight, and a regulation win would put Edmonton six points up on Vancouver. That is much more appealing than losing and having only a two-point cushion. Tonight…


Game Notes: Oilers vs Canadiens

The Oilers won’t have much time to think about last night’s ugly loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins as the team is back in action tonight against the Montreal Canadiens.


Game Notes Oilers @ Blues: Challenge The Champions

It doesn’t matter when or where a team plays the defending Stanley Cup Champions, there is always a bit more motivation when you skate against them. The St.Louis Blues are still one of the best teams in the NHL. They are first in the West with 48 points, and third overall in the NHL trailing…


Game Notes Oilers @ Stars: Going Streaking

One of my favourite comedy movies of all-time is Old School. Mitch (Luke Wilson), Frank (Wil Ferrell) and Beanie (Vince Vaughn) try to turn back the clock and re-live their glory days by starting their own college fraternity. This movie is filled with many great quotes and scenes.


Game Notes Oilers @ Wild: Stop The Bleeding

In the tight Western Conference games against most west opponents seems more important than ever.

Minnesota is seven points back, also with two games in hand, and with…


Game Notes Hurricanes @ Oilers: Edmonton Dominates Metro Division

The Edmonton Oilers look to continue their early season dominance over the Metropolitan division tonight when they host the Carolina Hurricanes. The Oilers are 8-0 against the Metro. This is their first meeting against the Hurricanes, but they’ve defeated all of the other seven teams, including the New Jersey Devils twice. Last year the Oilers…


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. Losing 5-2 to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night ignited some frustration within Oilersnation, which was fair, but head coach…


Game Notes: Senators @ Oilers – Home Cooking

The Edmonton Oilers open up a four-game homestand tonight against the rebuilding, 29th place Ottawa Senators. The Sens have lost five games in a row, including the first three on their current five-game road trip, and they’ve been outscored 17-5 during their losing streak. They arrived early this morning into Edmonton after their 5-2 loss…
