We could have been watching football. Final Score: 4-0 Red Wings
Be gone Satan! Final Score: 6-3 Oilers
It was more of the same last night. The Oilers played well enough to win, but didn’t. The offence outside from the usual suspects was non-existent, Cam Talbot was rock solid, and the special teams were terrible. I’ve seen this movie too many times over the past month.
Once again, the special teams were the difference. Final Score: 3-2 Penguins
Remember when the Oilers had a 2-0 lead? Pepperidge Farm remembers. Final Score: 5-2 Capitals
The Oilers put up five at even strength and get themselves back in the win column. Final Score: 5-4 Oilers
The Oilers were dropped by the Penguins last night 2-1 in overtime and thus finished their road trip with a 1-1-1 record. Cam Talbot has broken free from his early-season struggles, but the team still can’t seem to find a way to put the puck into the back of the net.
The Oilers probably played well enough to win but moral victories don’t pay the bills. Final Score: 2-1 Penguins in OT
Special teams ended up being the difference. Let’s all reground and move on. Final score: 2-1 Flyers
Top to bottom, that was a huge performance by the Edmonton Oilers. The team’s MVPs, Connor McDavid and Cam Talbot, both came up huge, the special teams were strong, and the Oilers thoroughly battled their way to a win against a good team on the road.
BOOM BOOM CHOO CHOO TRAIN LET’S SEE LETESTU DO HIS THING! Final Score: 2-1 Oilers in OT
This isn’t the start that anybody expected.

The Oilers had a strong game offensive, as you can see by the fact they more than doubled Carolina in the shot column,…
