The Finnish Flash will take one last skate at Rexall Place, before skating off into retirement, and he has a chance to make it a very memorable evening.
We won, Nation. We won. 5-1 against the Sharks. Stortini AND Comrie got into fights. I was there. There was shouting and the consumption of beverages. And it was free, thanks to stalwart OilersNation commenter rubbertrout.
Edmonton Oilers: 5 San Jose Sharks:1
On a wing and a prayer seems like a fitting theme for tonight as Devan Dubnyk goes for his first NHL win. Dubnyk is 146 minutes away from setting the NHL record for most minutes played without registering a win; and he’d love to avoid that illustrious honour.
Did you know the Oilers have only won consecutive home games twice this year? They won four straight in October on the 10th, 16th, 19th and 22nd, and they didn’t win two straight at home again until Feb 1st and 3rd over the Hurricanes and Flyers. In between those two heroic streaks, they lost nine […]
Edmonton Oilers: 2 (SO) Minnesota Wild: 1 The gutted remains of the Edmonton Oilers roster apparently forgot they were supposed to lose, as they managed to get away with a shootout victory over the Minnesota Wild. Jeff Deslauriers made 28 saves, Ryan Whitney led the Oilers with 26:20 of ice-time, and Aaron Johnson played 21:20 […]

How many of the trades leading up to the deadline actually help a team? Here’s a recap of what happened last year leading up to the trade deadline.
I’m a little surprised at the favourable reaction of many Oilers fans to the Denis Grebeshkov trade. While I didn’t think it was a brutally one-sided deal, I do know that I wouldn’t have made it in Steve Tambellini’s shoes. Because the biggest argument in favour of the trade is the cap space issue, I […]
After a sixteen-day break the Oilers get back at it tonight in Nashville where they’ll take on former teammate Denis Grebeshkov. I’m still a bit surprised some felt the Oilers should have gotten more for the inconsistent, $3 million D-man, because to me this trade was more about shedding cap space than anything else.
Happy to get away in the first place and less thrilled than that to be back with good reason, the Edmonton Oilers returned to the ice at Rexall Place Wednesday afternoon, marking an end to their Olympic break.
