EDMONTON — Jujhar Khaira‘s first career goal was the winner as the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Monday for their third straight victory. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl also scored for the Oilers (24-15-7), who have won five of their last seven outings. Radim Vrbata responded for the Coyotes (13-24-6) who have lost 11 of their last 13 games. Edmonton took an early lead 3:34 into the first period as Jordan Eberle dropped it to Nugent-Hopkins on an odd-man rush and he sent his ninth of the season past Arizona goalie Mike Smith. Eberle, who hadn’t scored in 17 games coming into the contest, had two glorious opportunities in the fir

Edmonton Oilers winger Milan Lucic doesn’t have to be the Angry Young Man every night, but before the Arizona Coyotes came to town Monday he was aware he had a meagre 18 PIMs, with nary a minor penalty in over a month. Mind-bending stuff.

Oilers put Coyotes out of their misery

There are games a team hopes to win, games it needs to win, games it should win and games it better win or else the roof will fall in. Monday night at Rogers Place featured all four, as the lowly Arizona Coyotes moved into the Edmonton Oilers’ crosshairs. With Arizona 21 points behind them in the standings and the Oilers playing at home and right in the thick of a playoff chase (four points behind Anaheim for the Pacific Division lead when the night began) this was a game where Edmonton needed to put their foot down and win convincingly. And they did, taking the Coyotes out behind the barn and putting them out of their misery with a 3-1 victory that could have been about 7-1 if not for

Edmonton Oilers winger Milan Lucic doesn’t have to be the Angry Young Man every night, but before the Arizona Coyotes came to town Monday he was aware he had a meagre 18 PIMs, with nary a minor penalty in over a month. Mind-bending stuff. “I’ve never been a guy who takes a lot of stick infractions,” said Lucic. “But maybe that’s where I need to get my game going. The emotional side, getting involved. Sometimes taking a roughing penalty, it means you’re engaged. “I need to look at that, going back to the basics to get myself fired up before every game.” Oilers coach Todd McLellan isn’t sure how to read PIM totals. “It’s a good thing if you don’t have any hook

Dan Barnes: Ryan Smyth once again an Oiler, always an Oiler

Date: 2017-01-16

Anyone who saw Ryan Smyth bleed at some point during his National Hockey League career was likely surprised by the colour. Because it really should have been blue and orange. Though he made a tearful, trade-deadline exit to the New York Islanders, followed by free-agent stops in Colorado and Los Angeles, he was mostly and remains today an Oiler through and through. It makes perfect sense then that he should be hired once again by the team that drafted him sixth overall in June 1994, signed him shortly thereafter, developed him over several years and employed him through 971 regular-season games and another 68 in the playoffs. Only current Oilers Entertainment Group vice-chair Kevin Lowe, wit

Shane Doan is face of Coyotes franchise, but could he be traded?

Date: 2017-01-16

Shane Doan has always been protective of his legacy, desiring to start and finish with the same NHL organization – the Winnipeg Jets/Arizona Coyotes – but he may be wavering. The longest-tenured NHL captain of 13 years, who played Monday with two kids — Anthony Duclair and Christian Dvorak — that weren’t born yet when the Edmonton Oilers fans were chanting “Doan, Doan, Doan,” at the 1995 draft here, might go to another team, but on his terms. “It would have to be so perfect and so right and that’s pretty hard for it all to line up so perfectly,” said Doan, 40, who has played 1,509 games with the same organization after the Jets took him seventh overall 22 years ago, despi

Oilers Gameday – Vs. Coyotes

Date: 2017-01-16

After two extra time wins at home, the Oilers begin the back half of their six game home stand tonight against the rival Arizona Coyotes at Rogers Place. The Oilers topped Arizona 3-2 in late December to end the dreadful streak without a regulation win against the desert dogs, which takes the pressure off them. Edmonton recalled Jordan Oesterle from Bakersfield on Sunday, sparking concern about Adam Larsson, but it looks like the Swede is good to go. Todd McLellan said this morning that Larsson is close and will be a game time decision along with Jujhar Khaira. I expect that both will play tonight. Cam Talbot starts for the Oilers while Mike Smith goes for Arizona. Keys To The Game: Edmonton

Coyotes’ Shane Doan opens up about trade possibility

Date: 2017-01-16

After 1,500-plus games and more than half of his lifetime spent with the same National Hockey League organization, Shane Doan admitted on Monday that he would waive his no-movement clause for a chance to win a Stanley Cup elsewhere. “It would have to be so perfect, so right. It’s pretty hard for it all to line up perfectly,” he cautioned. Doan admitted that, at age 40 and on an Arizona Coyotes team that isn’t going to make the playoffs, he’d sign off on a deal if it were to a team he thought could cap his career with his first trip to a Stanley Cup Final. The only problem? Which team to choose? “That’s kind of the issue,” said Doan. “Last year, no one would have picked San
