Oilers Pregame vs Philadelphia: Hunter v Gritty, But Where's The Phanatic?

Oilers Pregame vs Philadelphia: Hunter v Gritty, But Where's The Phanatic?

The Oilers are back in action tonight as they host the Philadelphia Flyers just one day after playing the Jets in Winnipeg. Because Winnipeg doesn’t have an airport, the team had to drive 6 hours to Fargo to fly home, so they’re probably pretty tired. Keys to the Game Edmonton It’s a good thing this is a home game; the Oilers need to keep Hunter safe, because in a battle between Hunter and Gritty, we all know who wins. They played decent last night, but tired legs are tired legs and Phil

Help Wanted…

The Edmonton Oilers got a point that they wouldn’t have got on a lot of nights in recent seasons with Thursday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets. That’s a big positive, but it’s going to take more than having Ken Hitchcock behind the bench for them to get many more like that unless they get some help on the blueline. The Oilers are on an 8-2-2 stretch with Hitchcock. They appear to be tighter and more cohesive than they’ve been in a long time, as they showed again by coming bac

Caleb Jones To Make NHL Debut Against Philadelphia

Caleb Jones To Make NHL Debut Against Philadelphia

Caleb Jones makes his NHL debut tonight vs PHI, playing alongside Gravel. Forwards will remain the same.— Jack Michaels (@EdmontonJack) December 14, 2018 Caleb Jones is ready for the show. With a rash of injuries appearing on the Oilers’ blue line, they’ve got to now juggle an already thin blue line. Kris Russell is out for at least a few more days with an undisclosed injury, so you can expect to see Caleb Jones make his NHL debut tonight. I think that also means that Jason Garrison

One Minute Men – Oilers vs Flyers (December 14, 2018)

It’s been a busy, busy, buuuuuuuusy week, friends. After hitting up the toboggan hill for the Avalanche and the Airplane Museum for the Jets, so this time we whipped out the good old green screen and travelled to PHILADELPHIA for the Flyers. There’s all kinds of good Philly stuff in the mix thanks to our travels. The Fresh Prince, Rocky, It’s Always Sunny, and, of course, Gritty. Watch me run up some stairs, watch Chris the Intern throw hands with some big, cold slabs of meat, and watch

GDB 33.0: Another KoskiWin (7pm MST, SNW)

Mikko Koskinen has been unbeatable at home. He is a perfect 6-0, has allowed only five goals and he’s stopped 180 of 185 shots in six starts. A win tonight would tie him for the best home start in Oilers history with Bill Ranford. Ranford won his first seven home games. Edmonton acquired Ranford, along with Geoff Courtnall and a second round pick from Boston for Andy Moog on March 8th, 1988. Battling Billy defeated Vancouver in his first home game on March 18th and beat St.Louis on April firs

Q&A: Oilers’ Ken Hitchcock on how coaching has changed over his career

Q&A: Oilers’ Ken Hitchcock on how coaching has changed over his career

EDMONTON — Ken Hitchcock is the Puck Whisperer, a man who can tame the 20-player horse that bucked the last coach off better than any coach of his generation. Suddenly, an Edmonton Oilers team that had just stopped functioning under Todd McLellan — who we maintain is among the upper echelon of NHL coaches today — is back in the playoff picture and cruising along at 8-2-2 under Hitchcock. We had a chance to sit in with a couple of Philly writers, who visited with the former Flyers coach on
