Do The Shuffle: What Will Oilers Lines Look Like In Philadelphia?

Last night was a big win for the Edmonton Oilers. It wasn’t always pretty, but it was a hard fought, smart victory over a tough team in an incredibly hard building to win in. The Oilers are now 2-4-0, and tomorrow they will have another big game in a tough building against a team that has started off pretty well. When the Oilers visit the Flyers tomorrow afternoon, they will be looking to avenge a tough loss from last December at the Wells Fargo Center. In order to do that, the Oile

Win over the Blackhawks allows the Oilers room to breathe

It’s hard to imagine that any team not involved in a playoff series could need a win any more than the Edmonton Oilers needed that 2-1 overtime thriller Thursday in Chicago.  After four grim and lopsided losses in a row, in which the only thing worse than Edmonton’s intensity was its execution, a hard-fought and reasonably complete effort against a pretty good Blackhawks team mu

Player grades: Connor McDavid, Cam Talbot, special teams all rise to occasion as Oilers outlast Blackhawks

Oilers 2, Blackhawks 1 (OT) Just a splendid hockey game in the Windy City on Thursday night, as the Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks went at it hammer & tongs for 65 minutes before the visitors pulled it out on Mark Letestu’s powerplay goal in the dying seconds of overtime.  It was a game that featured a little bit of everything: fine goaltending, staunch defensive play, hardnosed grinding and moments of offensive brilliance from some of the game’s biggest star

Ridin’ The Storm Out – Oilers Snap Streak, Win 2-1

The Edmonton Oilers finally snapped the streak tonight. They went into the danger zone, weathered the storm, and will walk out of the windy city with two points. This was a gutsy win for the Oilers, mainly because things went south early and the team could have folded and moved onto Philly. Instead, they battled back and took down the Hawks. After four really poor games, the Oilers came out tonight and committed to defense, playing a smart game all night long. The team didn’t commit

Cam Talbot's bounceback and 5 other reasons why the Edmonton Oilers beat the Chicago Blackhawks 2-to-1

Admit it, Oilers fans. When Edmonton Oilers goalie Cam Talbot let in that stinker of a deflected goal on a soft centring pass early in the first period, you figured his team to be toast.  I sure did. Last year in the 25 games where an Oilers goalie let in the first or second scoring chance shot of the game, the gritty 2016-17 Edmonton team was able to fight back and win 48 per cent of the time. This year, however, they had lost four straight that way.  But then Edmonton sudde
