Date: 2014-10-21

It would take NHL expansion to Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, Anchorage, Fairbanks, Victoria, Tacoma, Eureka, Everett, Spokane, Salem, Eugene, Sacramento, Oakland, Bakersfield, Stockton, Frezno, Modesto, Long Beach, San Diego and Tijuana and Honolulu to do it. But Edmonton would obviously be much better off in the Eastern Conference.

Ryan Garner: Victory! Oilers Finally Find the Win Column

The final seconds ticked off the clock and I didn’t know how to react. It had been such a long time, with wins so few and far between, I honestly didn’t know what to do at the end of the Edmonton Oilers’ 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. How do you react? I’m accustomed to anger, frustration, and gentle cursing under my breath, mumbling to myself for a while before trailing off in...

You know Jon Cooper told his players not to take the Edmonton Oilers lightly. You know Jon Cooper told his players to remain focused on the task at hand. It didn’t seem to matter. The Tampa Bay Lightning were virtually invisible on Monday night, as the Oilers beat them by a score of 3-2 at Rexall Place. The Lightning’s first period struggles set the tone for their entire evening. They...

Do not fold, staple, spindle or mutilate the saying went, back in the days of data being physically imprinted on punch cards that gave instructions to computers. No punch cards are needed in the digital era, but no matter how Edmonton Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins programmed the game plan, his team had come up losers in five straight games to start this NHL season.

On this night, score a victory for RNH over Steve Stamkos

It should go into Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ memory bank, not just the deposit that beat Ben Bishop for the game-winner Monday but being more noticeable than his centre counterpart Steve Stamkos for one head-to-head-night. It might not be the same story in mid January, just before the all-star break when the Oilers are in Tampa, but in this one RNH was pushing the pace and creating stuff from first shift to his goal with 3 1/2 minutes left. It was easily his best game of the season after he missed two because he twisted his back in Vancouver 10 days ago. While Stamkos, who was dazzling in Vancouver last Saturday with two goals and an assist in a 4-2 win, had a quiet night here by his lofty s

It's a Nugemas Miracle!

A late goal from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins leads the Oilers to their first win of the 2014/2015 season. The Oilers slunk into Rexall Place tonight needing a win (so so so bad) after going 0-4-1 to start the season. The faithful were getting restless, and Connor McDavid chatter was starting much too early in Oil Country. Also of note: Ben Scrivens was all class tonight as he sported a mask to raise mental health awareness. It's the first of four such masks he plans to wear over the course of the season, and all will go up for auction later on, with all proceeds going to mental health research. First Period: In Search of a Win 0:50 The Oilers’ top line is off to a great start, fighting for

Finally, there was some loud music in the Edmonton Oilers’ dressing room after a game. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who was more noticeable on Monday than opposing centre Steve Stamkos, beat Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop for his first goal with 3-1/2 minutes left to give the Oilers their first win of the season 3-2 over the Lightning at Rexall Place.

Ryan Callahan Injury: Updates on Lightning Star's Lower Body and Return

Date: 2014-10-21

The Tampa Bay Lightning lost veteran forward Ryan Callahan to an injury Monday night in the team's 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times broke the news on Twitter: Callahan, who spent most of his first eight years in the league with the New York Rangers, had scored three goals and two assists entering Monday in five games of work. After a trade sent Callahan to Tampa Bay, he quickly inked a six-year extension with the team last June and was poised to play a major role in the lineup moving forward. He spoke recently about his new surroundings. "It starts to feel like home," he said, per Smith. "It takes a little bit of time, obviously, I'm really happy to spend th

The Oilers finally collected their first win of 2014-15, and there wasn’t anything cheap about it; Edmonton’s hockey club thoroughly earned this one. The key matchup was the hard assignment of the top forward line and the Martin Marincin/Mark Fayne pairing against Steven Stamkos, a matchup that the quintet of players won convincingly. It wasn’t a perfect game, but on balance the Oilers were the better team and deserved the victory. Player Grades The following are the player grades for the Oilers, with 10 being a “perfect” game, 9 extraordinary, 8 great, 7 good, 6 above average, 5 average, 4 below average, 3 poor, 2 terrible and 1 deserving of almost instant demotion.
