Those players are impacting the scoreboard on the power play too, but the main role is to find a way to get prospects like Bogdan Yakimov posting boxcars in the AHL.  (Prospects underlined) EVEN-STRENGTH SCORING THROUGH FOUR GAMES (BARONS)   Jason Williams 4GP, 2-1-3 Iiro Pakarinen 4GP, 2-0-2 Tyler Pitlick 4GP, 1-1-2 Ryan Hamilton 3GP, 0-2-2 Andrew Miller 3GP, 0-1-1 Steve Pinizzotto 3GP, 0-1-1 Oscar Klefbom 3GP, 0-1-1 Curtis Hamilton 3GP, 1-0-1 Martin Marincin 1GP, 1-0-1 B

Oiler David Perron determined to bust goose egg

There’s no avoiding the big fat zero still glaring at David Perron from the statistical summary. Eight games. No goals. It is certainly not the way the Edmonton Oilers winger wanted to start the season, particularly after leading the club in 2013-2014 with 28 goals.

Benoit Pouliot and David Perron do bad things sometimes

Date: 2014-10-25

I’ve been a fan of sports my entire life, and I know one thing to be absolutely, immutably true for virtually any game or event: when their guy does something illegal and gets away with it, it’s deplorable and possibly criminal and the referee should have his eyes examined, but when our guy does the exact same thing it’s veteran gamesmanship and gosh isn’t he a lovable rogue. So I’m expecting that fans of the Edmonton Oilers are pretty happy with what David Perron and Benoit Pouliot after their grey area contributions on Friday night.

THE POWER AND THE GLORY

If Leon Draisaitl can show up in as many right places as he did during last night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes, he belongs in the NHL as a teenager. The big man scored his first NHL goal, then demolished his captain in a splendid moment for the rookie and Oilers fans.    OILERS SCORING AFTER EIGHT GAMES There’s some nice scoring depth here after the top line (and didn’t Eberle look fine last night? He was injured. Stand down, worry warts!). By line, the scoring breaks down this way: Nuge line (9) Leon line (2) Arco line (3) Gordon line (4) Even after last night, I’d send young Draisaitl back, but can say with authority he’s here to stay. I suspect

On a night in which the Edmonton Oilers saw Jordan Eberle find the back on the net for the first time this season and put together a three point effort, it was youngster Leon Draisaitl who stole the show. The young German centre made the first goal of his NHL career one he won't soon forget, scoring the game-winner in the Oilers 6-3 win over the still winless Carolina Hurricanes.

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.

History has a way of repeating itself. Leon Draisaitl scored his first NHL goal in his eighth Edmonton Oilers’ game on Friday, just as fellow first-rounder Taylor Hall did on Oct. 28, 2010.

Player grades: Leon Draisaitl’s first career NHL goal the winner in Edmonton Oilers’ third straight victory

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
