#FranksPicks: Oilers at Bruins

Alright, so Frank’s first pick of the season didn’t really go as planned, but rather than get disappointed, he got back to studying. Frank knows how important it is to get himself back to .500 so he’s put in countless hours of research over the past week to get himself prepared. If there’s one thing I know about Frank, it’s that he takes his hockey picks seriously and he really hates to lose. Since picking the Oilers on Saturday, he hasn’t been himself and has been pacing around the

3 Things to Watch for Early in the Oilers Season

3 Things to Watch for Early in the Oilers Season

To say the Edmonton Oilers’ season-opening loss to the New Jersey Devils was a letdown would be like saying Connor McDavid is pretty good at hockey; it’s an understatement. During their 5-2 loss to the Devils on Saturday in Gothenburg, Sweden, the Oilers looked like a team trying to figure out IKEA furniture instructions instead of the team that went 6-1 in the preseason. The response was not good which is understandable, considering the Devils scored on their first shot, less than a minute

One minute men – Oilers at Bruins

Producing game day content is one of my favourite things to do at NationHQ. Summers are extremely painful around these parts, and that’s why I’m so so happy that Connor McDavid and the hockey season are back in my life. Last year as something fun to do, we thought we would re-read Jason Gregor’s Game Day Notes and put it into a video format for all of you visual learners. I’m happy to announce that we have brought back the idea, and are re-launching the Minute Men videos today. Beware t

Nation Donair Tour – Queen Donair

We hosted our season opener party at The Pint on Saturday and, as you all surely know, the Oilers gave us a lot of reasons to drink. Here’s what happens when you’re 2:00 AM drunk at 4:00 PM. Things got a little loose at the good ol’ Pint and we ventured east down Jasper Ave. to hit up Queen Donair — a staple for Edmontonians who enjoy an evening on the town. It was a hell of an experience because none of us were used to be being there in broad daylight, but they shockingly had their

GDB 2.0: Be Ready, Be Better (5pm MT, SNW)

The Oilers opening night loss to the Devils was only one game, but considering how quickly last season spun out of control for the Oilers, there should be a heightened sense of urgency within the dressing room. Urgency doesn’t mean panic, it just means the players need to realize they can’t feel their way into this season. “There’s a number of players that are on notice. Tonight would be a good night to establish yourself in the lineup as a consistent player,” Todd McLellan said this

This is the first of two meetings between the teams this season, who will finish the series next Thursday night in Edmonton. The Oilers had won five straight against the Bruins prior to last season’s 3-2 loss in February when the Oilers blew a 2-0 lead in the third period. In Boston, the Oilers have won th
