Oilers lose to host Canadiens

MONTREAL — It was fun while it lasted. Head coach Todd McLellan, his team riding high after a pair of convincing wins over Columbus and Ottawa, wondered aloud if the Edmonton Oilers were still allergic to prosperity. Turns out they are. Instead of taking advantage of an opportunity to win three in a row and turn their momentum into something substantial, their throats swelled shut again and they choked away a 5-1 loss to the NHL’s sisters of the poor. A Montreal Canadiens team that had won just five of its previous 26 games rolled over the Oilers like they weren’t even there, neutralizing Connor McDavid and then taking advantage of a lineup that seemed lost without a 19-year-

Once again, those fools who run this website have left me in charge of the post-game summary. We’re going to do things just a little bit differently today, tracking the ebb and flow of the game with descriptions of all the chances for and against. As per usual, we include your tweets. Of course, if you just want to revel in misery after a brutal loss to a terrible team, head to the comments section and cry your eyes out and/or burn Justin Schultz in effigy.

Taylor vs. Tyler: Almost six years later no clear winner in Hall, Seguin debate

Admission of truth: This column started out as the definitive I’ll-tell-you-who-is-the-best-now. Bottom line: It is not. It was a coin toss in 2010 and it remains a coin toss in 2016. Taylor or Tyler? Who would you rather have playing for your team, Taylor Hall, who was chosen first in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, or Tyler Seguin, chosen No. 2 by the Boston Bruins? It just might be the NHL’s most intriguing discussion after Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin and at the same time not as provocative as Ginger or Mary Ann. “I don’t know who I’d take today,” said an NHL pro scout. “They are both great players. The speed factor for both of them is the big thing. Seg

Ranking the Jerseys of the Edmonton Oilers

I absolutely love hockey memorabilia. I’ve been a year into collecting Hockey Cards for the first time since I was a kid, but the biggest memorabilia that I collect are jerseys. Jerseys, sweaters whatever you like or want to call them: it’s the ultimate piece of hockey gear for fans. I have just over forty hockey jerseys, including eleven Edmonton Oilers jerseys. I get really excited whenever a team decides to rebrand their look with new logos and a new set of jerseys. Today, I’ve decided to rank seven sets of jerseys in particular from the Edmonton Oilers’ history. To be fair, compared to other teams, The Oilers have some of the nicest sweaters in hockey. I am biased

The Oilers are back in action today at noon MST against the hapless Habs. Since their blistering start, Montreal has fallen significantly and has posted the worst record in the league since December 1. And Connor McDavid is back in the Oilers lineup. Should be a great game.   Last Games Edmonton The Oilers beat Ottawa 7-2 on Thursday night, with points from just about everyone. The tandem of Jordan Eberle and Connor McDavid is something to behold, and the two of them made the Sens pay in a big way. I realize the Senators aren’t in a playoff spot right now but 7 goals by the Oilers in any game is something to celebrate. Montreal The Habs are not very good. My dad texted me last nig

Rumor Roundup: Canadiens GM Bergevin looking for offensive help

Date: 2016-02-06

As the Montreal Canadiens continue to plummet in the standings, calls are rising for GM Marc Bergevin to do something to save their dwindling playoff hopes. As Bergevin has publicly stated he won’t change the coaching staff, his only option is the trade market. The more the losses pile up, the more the trade rumor mill buzzes in anticipation over Bergevin’s plans. There’s been talk of pursuing Carolina Hurricanes captain Eric Staal. Sportsnet’s Eric Engels recently reported right winger Dale Weise and defenseman Tom Gilbert could be shopped if the losing continues. Engels also claimed the Habs would strongly consider Winnipeg Jets left winger Andrew Ladd, though the
