The Oilers beat the Hurricanes 6-3 and have a 3 game winning streak going As good as the final outcome was this was not a game for the Oilers to hang their hats on. On the heels of a 5-0 spanking by the Calgary Flames the night before the Carolina Hurricanes were in rough shape. The Hurricanes came into tonight's contest as the only team in the NHL without a win. This should've been a game the Oilers shone in but it took almost 2 1/2 periods for them to really get going. For the first 50 minutes of the game the two teams seemed evenly matched and if it wasn't for some penalties in favour of the Oilers and couple non-calls against them this could've been a different game.

It wasn’t a pretty win. An injury-riddled Hurricanes team tired from getting crushed by Calgary on Thursday night should have been easy pickings for the Oilers. Instead, Edmonton caught some breaks and needed a big third period to secure it’s third straight victory. It’s the second game in a row the Oilers easily could have lost based on merit, but won instead; that’s a better trend than the ‘losing games they could have won’ stretch they had earlier in the year but as we’ve seen eventually results catch up with process. With that said, there were some real highlights. Leon Draisaitl is trending upward and had a very good night. The top line, led b

Happy Friday folks! Another week has come to a close, and the Oilers are in the midst of a massive home-stand that could save their season. The games aren’t the only thing happening however right now with our beloved hockey club, trade chatter is picking up as well, and some interesting options maybe opening up thanks to injuries around the NHL.

They haven’t put together a ton of solid performances, and were already in the market for a defender. Today, the Flyers lost defenders Andrew MacDonald and Braydon Coburn for four weeks a piece with injuries. The Flyers, accordin

Steve Smith on Carolina Hurricanes bench now

Steve Smith, the Edmonton Oiler assistant coach for four years until a shuffling of personnel this summer by head knock Dallas Eakins, is now handling the defence for the Carolina Hurricanes. Smith could have moved up to the pressbox to be the eye-in-the-sky for Oiler game nights when Craig Ramsay was brought in, but he wasn’t crazy about the idea, and was hired by Carolina just before the June draft. “It’s never an easy conversation, there’s a lot of thought, a weighing of options,” said Eakins, who had Smith and Kelly Buchberger, now a player development guy, as holdover assistants when he got the head job in 2013. Truth is, when things aren’t going well

Leon Draisaitl Should Stay with the Edmonton Oilers This Season

Date: 2014-10-24

The Edmonton Oilers are off to yet another roaring start this season—not so much. Much to the despair of the club's loyal fans, the team is 2-4-1 and must win the majority of its games in the next 30 days if there is to be even a glimmer of hope for meaningful games in January and beyond. Yes, it's come to that. Hoping to see meaningful games after three months of play is already in jeopardy. All is not lost. While the club matched its worst start in franchise history by going winless in its first five games, the tide—albeit against weaker Eastern Conference teams—has turned. Make no mistake, the team as it exists cannot compete with the top six or seven teams in the West.

Last week most fans of the Edmonton Oilers needed to step away from the ledge. Two wins this week and the masses have calmed. Such is life in Edmonton. The Oilers lost games early where they dominated play and now have won a game versus the Capitals they probably should have lost. The analytics told us the team was likely better than their start, however, wins matter and shot and zone tracking don’t directly earn points in the standings. After eight consecutive losing seasons, fans want points not an effort badge.After two straight wins the mood of fans has been elevated. Talk of firing the coach or GM is quieter and the volume knob for calls to trade everyone, including the stick boy
