GLENDALE, Ariz. — Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored with 0.3 seconds left in overtime, and the Arizona Coyotes beat the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 Tuesday night to end a team-record nine-game home losing streak. The game appeared to be headed to a shootout, but Ekman-Larsson took a feed from Sam Gagner and beat Ben Scrivens just before the horn sounded. Ekman-Larsson was swarmed by teammates after helping the Coyotes end a five-game losing streak overall. Brandon McMillan scored his first goal of the season and Arizona set a franchise record with 27 shots in the second period to extend its points streak to 17 games against Edmonton, a franchise mark against one team. Devan Dubnyk sto

It's about time Oilers fans whip out an old New Orleans trick. Adam Gretz Tweeted that .gif earlier tonight during the Oilers game against the Coyotes: Paper bag Oilers fans are one of my favorite things tonight. http://t.co/d8JblSULre — Adam Gretz (@AGretz) December 17, 2014 The paper bag fan originated in New Orleans in 1980 during a 14-game losing streak: He hatched the bag idea in 1980, borrowing from the Unknown Comic, who wore a brown paper bag onstage during "The Gong Show." Diliberto and a bartender buddy designed their version, decorated it with holiday lights, cut holes for the eyes and scribbled ’Aints across the front. Since the Saints’ inception, Dilibe

Glendale, AZ — Todd Nelson was at the airport in Chicago, on his way to Charlotte, N.C. with the Oklahoma City Barons, when his phone rang. It was the call he had been waiting for. So rather than wonder if there’d be a better opportunity at some future point in time, he landed in Charlotte, grabbed his bags, and jumped on a plane to Phoenix to start his tenure as the Edmonton Oilers interim head coach.

Trade Talk: Shopping Taylor Hall

Taylor Hall’s name is out there. Rightly or wrongly, it has people talking and proposing all kinds of outlandish trade scenarios. The reality is, Hall is the best player on the Edmonton Oilers and the closest thing that team has to a franchise guy. If general manager turned temporary head coach Craig MacTavish is seriously contemplating trading this type of talent, it tells us one of two things — either Hall is a problem in the dressing room, or Hall has requested a move. There have been rumblings of the former, that Hall isn’t a team player and hasn’t bought into the “plan”, but the latter wouldn’t be totally shocking either. The first overall pick from 2010 might finally be f

Eakins: If anyone can get it done, it’s MacTavish

It’s been a little more than 24 hours since Dallas Eakins was fired as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers, but he’s still a big believer in the team’s general manager. “I believe the market thought by drafting high, this would be real easy and it’s not. You have to fill so many holes in so many different ways and it’s gonna take time. If anybody has got the cojones to get it done here, its going to be Craig.” Eakins told Jeff Blair on Prime Time Sports Tuesday. Eakins, who preached patience from Oilers fans at his press conference earlier in the day, echoed that sentiment in the evening. He mentioned that while everyone likes and gets excited about the possibilities and
