GDB Game Notes: Look Away — I’m Hideous!

One of the my favourite scenes in Seinfeld ends with Kramer’s infamous, “Look away, I’m hideous.” “What happened to your face, it looks like an old catcher’s mitt. It’s from all that smoke. You’ve experienced a lifetime of smoking in 72 hours. What did you expect?” saysJerry Seinfeld “Emphysema, birth defects, Cancer, but not this!…


GDB Game Notes: Stars @ Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers first five games of an eight-game stretch v. Pacific division opponents, and the Dallas Stars, has been anything but smooth. The Oilers are 1-3-1 and have been outscored 20-12. Despite the sluggish five games, they are only three points behind Vegas for third in the division and four back of Dallas for…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Ducks

It is Thanksgiving weekend in the United States and today is arguably bigger than Christmas in the USA, especially for shoppers. Americans love their matinee sporting events and that is why today’s game starts at 1 p.m. PST (2 p.m. MST). Don’t look now, but the Oilers are 3-0 in matinee games this season. They…


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Sharks

The Oilers skate into the Pacific time zone for the first time tonight in San Jose, and they will be looking for a much more consistent effort than what they showed v. Calgary and Vegas. The great part of NHL hockey is teams rarely have to wait long for an opportunity to rebound from a…


GDB Game Notes: Canadiens @ Oilers

The NHL landscape changes quickly. A week ago the Edmonton Oilers were 8-4-1 and playing well, but suddenly they have lost four straight, are 8-8-1, and things aren’t nearly as rosy as eight days ago. Having the fewest wins in the NHL since 2007 doesn’t allow the Oilers organization the luxury of staying calm and…

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.
