If only the Edmonton Oilers could find a way to play the Columbus Blue Jackets or Colorado Avalanche on a somewhat regular basis on home ice, all would be good in Oil Country. Having already destroyed Columbus earlier this season, Edmonton continued their domination of the Avs on Thursday night. with an 8-2 thrashing of Patrick Roy's young side. Taylor Hall led the onslaught upfront with a four point effort, including hat-trick #4 of his young career.

Edmonton’s farm team in Oklahoma City is loaded to the gills with defence prospects. Oilers fans got to see one of those – Martin Marincin – last night and over the course of the season have seen Taylor Fedun, Philip Larsen and come very close to seeing Brandon Davidson and Oscar Klefbom.What’s happening with that group down in OKC? Potential and Experience There has been some grumbling about middling results from the group, but the fact is that aside from occasional minor-league stints played by Corey Potter and Denis Grebeshkov it’s been a very raw set of players on the Oklahoma blue line.That isn’t to say they aren’t talented, but ex
You don’t have to approach your job intelligently, but it helps. I love watching smart hockey players make smart plays, and the Oilers have a rookie standout in this area. Arcobello is having a quality rookie season across the board. His point total is impressive, he’s been successful in every role asked of him, and has significantly outplayed the competition for center ice-time.

All in all, an admittedly nervous Martin Marincin made it through his first day of NHL school Thursday without making a mess of it and having to write on the blackboard “I will not do that again” after doing things he shouldn’t. “Good game…you always remember your first one,” said Edmonton Oilers’ GM Craig MacTavish after the Edmonton Oilers’ defenceman played almost 16 minutes in an 8-2 walloping of the Colorado Avalanche. Marincin didn’t make it to practice Thursday morning along with two other OKCity call-ups Corey Potter and Anton Lander because of weather/flight problems but he never missed a beat in his first NHL game.

If the Edmonton Oilers need a reminder of what key saves and timely goals can do for a team, they need only look at their work in Thursday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche. Sparked by a hat trick from Taylor Hall — his first multiple-goal night since Oct. 17 — and backed by a solid 33-save performance from goalie Devan Dubnyk, the Oilers scored an 8-2 victory at Rexall Place.
