The Edmonton Oilers were handing over 60-inch TVs, patio furniture and trips to the world hockey championship in Prague, Czech Republic, on fan appreciation night Friday at Rexall Place, but they weren’t giving away two points to the Dallas Stars. Goaltender Richard Bachman, who played 32 games for Dallas before joining the Oilers’ farm team, stuck a knife in the Stars’ playoff hopes and twisted it as he stopped all 29 shots in a 4-0 victory over his buddy, Kari Lehtonen.

Canucks move past Thursday’s embarrasing loss

VANCOUVER — Even though it stings, defenceman Luca Sbisa says the Vancouver Canucks must move past Thursday night’s embarrassing home performance. A rested Vancouver squad dropped a disheartening 4-1 decision to a Colorado Avalanche club playing its second game in as many nights. Even more troubling was the Canucks’ complete lack of urgency in a contest that could’ve widened the gap in the Western Conference playoff picture. "It’s not an easy one to put behind us because it was not good enough," Sbisa said afterwards. "I don’t think we can think about it too much. We know that wasn’t us, so just get back to what we do best and pla

From his view on the Edmonton Oil Kings’ bench, Steve Hamilton thought he was witnessing the game being tied up. A few feet away, backup goalie Patrick Dea was working the door to the Oil Kings’ bench and had his head hung low. The 18-year-old saw Brandon Wheat Kings forward Rihards Bukarts break in on Edmonton goalie Tristan Jarry and catch him as he shifted his feet, lacing the puck between the opening in Jarry’s pads.

If the Edmonton Oilers were ever going to give OKC goalie Richard Bachman a start, it was going to be Friday against the Dallas Stars–the team he used to play for as Kari Lehtonen’s backup. He’s been in the NHL, earning big-league money, for six weeks now with Viktor Fasth out with a groin injury, but he’s been sitting on the Oilers’ bench wearing a ballcap as a cheerleader for Ben Scrivens. Scrivens has started 15 of the previous 16 games, with the only break in North Carolina March 8 when the Oilers blew a 3-0 lead and fell 6-4 with an empty-net hat-trick goal by Elias Lindholm with Bachman on the bench, to put it away for the Hurricanes. “Half the Dalla

At least there will be some familiarity for Richard Bachman when he shakes off the cobwebs and steps into the Edmonton Oilers’ net tonight. He had played with four of the defencemen in Oklahoma City earlier this season, a list that now includes Brandon Davidson, who was called up from the Barons on Thursday.

Maybe the only problem with Justin Schultz is that the Edmonton Oilers have miscast him

Justin Schultz is a controversial player in Edmonton. Some of the blame for that must fall on his shoulders, because 195 games into his NHL career he has not noticeably developed as an offensive option and there remain significant gaffes in his defensive game. A far greater share of the problem rests on the shoulders of the men who have constructed the Oilers. It was the Oilers who ordained Schultz a top-pairing defenceman as a rookie NHL’er. Schultz averaged 21:26 per game under head coach Ralph Krueger as a rookie in 2012-13, a total which ranked second on the team in total ice time. In each of the last two seasons, first under Dallas Eakins and more recently under Todd Nelson, he has be
