They’re going to go ahead with the game anyway, but the result, according to pretty much everyone who isn’t an Edmonton Oiler or Carolina Hurricane, is a foregone conclusion.

The Edmonton Oilers’ forward plan is excellent, but still needs one obvious change

To nobody’s surprise, the Edmonton Oilers are expected to stick with the same sets of forwards against the Carolina Hurricanes that they’ve iced in previous games. Every line has a role, every line is useful, and three of the four units have the ability to push the play offensively against the opposition. The group looks like this: Outside of the top trio, there is no sense of clear separation between the rest of the lines. On any given night, any of those three units could find themselves ranked second, third or fourth in total ice time. Of particular note here is the impact of the defensive zone trio of Matt Hendricks, Body Gordon and Jesse Joensuu. Behind the Net tracks (among other

Oilers Gameday – Vs. Hurricanes

Source: The Oilers Rig
Date: 2014-10-24

The Oilers return to Rexall Place tonight looking to build off of some momentum after finally getting their first winning streak of the season on Wednesday night. Tonight, Edmonton gets a visit from a rare opponent, the Carolina Hurricanes, who were last at Rexall in December of 2013. The Oilers have won two in a row, beating Tampa Bay and Washington, while Carolina still has yet to find their first win of the season. Edmonton is in game four of a seven game home-stand, while Carolina is in the midst of a western road trip. The Hurricanes are playing in the second half of back-to-back games, and are without star Jordan Staal, who was injured in a pre-season tilt with the Buffalo Sabres. For

GDB 8.0: A game they should win

I realize that when you've been the worst franchise for the past eight seasons there are no easy games, and even though the Carolina Hurricanes are still looking for their first victory of the season, this is not an easy game for the Oilers. It is, however, a game they should win.The Canes aren't that good, and they are playing even worse lately, including a loss last night in Calgary. The Oilers didn't take advantage of a fatigued Calgary team in their season opener, and they can't let two points slip through their fingers tonight.

Martin Marincin, Jesse Joensuu hot for Edmonton Oilers, Taylor Hall, Mark Fayne, Jordan Eberle not.

When it comes to two-way play, Martin Marincin, Jesse Joensuu, Boyd Gordon, and Nikita Nikitin are off to strong starts with the Edmonton Oilers. Not so hot right now are Mark Arcobello, Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Mark Fayne and Andrew Ference, at least if you go by individual scoring chances as rough proxy for two-way play*. The play of Joensuu and Gordon has been a bright light at forward. They have the tough task of taking a lot of defensive zone faceoffs, but still have good scoring chance differentials. Joensuu has had the best run of his Oilers career. He’s protecting the puck well, hitting, winning pucks on the boards and making generally sound defensive decisions, though it

HURRICANES AT OILERS G8 2014-15

Date: 2014-10-24

The Edmonton Oilers are 2-4-1 and have an excellent chance to win three in a row and settle down their season during this 7-game homestand. Carolina played the Flames last night, and they look ass (in the words of my son) in all areas. The Oilers should win this game handily. If they exit tonight 3-4-1, the club will be on pace to finish with 72 points—a disappointment, I had them pegged at 87—and return to “Tom Renney in year two” levels. As important, their overall possession numbers are stronger this fall and sustaining them through the year may end up being the best part of 2014-15. The corgi’s should be barking at the Hurricanes tonight. Leon is counting down to
