The first handful of games from the NHL season are in the books, and that means the boys have plenty to talk about on the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio. On today’s podcast, we’re talkin’ slow starts, rebounding against the Hurricanes, injury issues, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s podcast, we got started with a delicious debate about the Oilers’ record and specifically what everyone would find to be acceptable. With five games left on the schedule, the boys walked through what’s left in October and tried to reverse engineer the max number of points they’ll be able to get from some pretty tough opponents. Looking back at last night’s win over the Hurricanes, there were a bunch of Oilers that stepped up their games on a night when they really needed to. One of the guys that had a big night was my boy Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Not only was RNH fantastic in all facets of the game, but he also found a way to put four points up on the board. Is it unreasonable to think that Nuge looks more like his old self over the last couple of games? Next up, we looked at a few roster updates that have popped up on the depth chart after news dropped that Philip Broberg is battling shoulder injuries and Dylan Holloway will miss a few games after getting lit up by Lyubushkin on Tuesday. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers.
