Oil Spills: Edmonton Oilers Letestu and Maroon top targets as NHL trade deadline looms

Oil Spills: Edmonton Oilers Letestu and Maroon top targets as NHL trade deadline looms

Monday, Feb. 26 is the NHL trade deadline and Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are perhaps the only two Edmonton Oilers players who won’t be in play. The team’s encouraging performance in last year’s playoffs raised hopes of another post-season appearance this year. But a devastatingly disappointing season so far has the Oilers out of playoff contention and struggling for answers as the team sits out a chance to play for the

Prospect Update: Trouble in Bakersfield

Not a lot of highlight-worthy weeks for the prospects in this latest update (outside of the playoff races in the CHL which always mean bigger numbers). The Condors are dealing with a shortage of able bodies right now. And with the short-lived call-up of Keegan Lowe (now sent back down) the cupboards in Condorsville were getting...

Player grades: McDavid hatty, Strome snipe turn the tide as Edmonton Oilers break losing slide in style

Player grades: McDavid hatty, Strome snipe turn the tide as Edmonton Oilers break losing slide in style

Oilers 4, Avalanche 2 Don’t ever accuse the Edmonton Oilers of being fast learners. Riding a six-game losing streak that had seen them allow the first goal each time — obscenely early in most cases — the Oil got lit up after just 4 minutes in Denver on Sunday, and spent most of the first 50 minutes chasing a one-goal deficit. Finally, though, after scoring just 2 goals in the first 8½ periods of their southwestern road trip, the Oilers finally started finding the back of the

GDB 58.0 Wrap Up: McDavid’s hat trick powers Oilers to a 4-2 victory

Thank you, Connor. Final Score: 4-2 Oilers After I posted the GDB this morning, I spent about 10 minutes just staring at my screen, the Oilers’ schedule, and off into space. I was trying to wrap my head around how this season went so wrong when everyone expected it to go so right. You can...

Oilers Gameday @ Colorado: Rocky Mountain Fight

Oilers Gameday @ Colorado: Rocky Mountain Fight

Another afternoon game. Yikes. The Oilers are back in action, this time in Denver to take on Gabriel Landeskog and the rest of the team almost known as the Rocky Mountain Express (seriously look that up) the Colorado Avalanche. Edmonton comes into this one looking to break a six game skid (sighhh) while Colorado looks to avoid dropping two in a row and gain some ground on the second wildcard spot in the West as currently, they sit three points back of Minnesota for the spot.
