GDB Wrap Up 3.0: Everybody exhales, Oilers win 2-1 at MSG

Two points in the bank and we can all enjoy the rest of our Saturday. Final Score: 2-1 Oilers I don’t think I’m talking out of school when I say that the Oilers absolutely had to win this hockey game. Starting the season with two straight losses was bad enough but adding a third on top of that by a rebuilding Rangers team would have been like throwing gas on the fire. Adding to the intrigue was the surprise storyline that Daryl Katz was in attendance, something that we don’t see all that

Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had assists. Former Ranger Cam Talbot made 23 saves. The 21-year-o

GDB 3.0: Two points will go a long way — just win baby (11am MT, SNW)

Welcome, friends, to another early edition of the GDB. Today, our beloved Oilers look to end their early season skid with a much-needed win against the New York Rangers. Could an afternoon affair against a rebuilding team be just what the doctor ordered? We’re only a couple hours from finding out. Apparently, the NHL schedule makers wanted to make the start of this season as difficult as humanly possible for our boys. Anyone else feel that way? I mean, I’m no tinfoil hat guy but if you loo

Edmonton Oilers: Dead Man (Men?) Walking

Here we are at game three of the 2018/19 season and we’re already into “Must-Win” territory. Is that f*cking insane or what? The Oilers have lost both of their games so far to teams who are playing very well to start the year. Fair play to Boston and New Jersey could be said and bad luck to Edmonton could also be said. The New Jersey game was a travesty of an effort but the Boston game was near completely opposite in terms of the compete level and I think Edmonton simply had poor puck lu

Game Three 2018-19: Oilers at Rangers

They’re just kids when they arrive, some of them can’t grow a beard for love nor money for several years. Fans give them names you would associate with kids (Baby Nuge) and trudge through the land of ice and snow to cheer for them. These young men matter in this city, grown men and women fret over each of the entry seasons. By the final year of the first contract, you should get an idea about what kind of player the team drafted, where he fits on the depth chart. For Jesse, we are here. The

GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Rangers

The Oilers are in New York to take on the Rangers this morning at 11 am MT and here are your game day notes. 1. The Rangers started 0-3 on the season with losses to Nashville, Buffalo, and Carolina, but finally picked up their first win of the season in overtime against San Jose on Thursday. This start isn’t all too surprising for New York, who finished dead last in the competitive Metropolitan Division last season, as they begin to navigate through a rebuilding process. 2. General manager

Quick Shifts: If the Maple Leafs decide to trade Nylander…

Quick Shifts: If the Maple Leafs decide to trade Nylander…

A quick mix of the things we gleaned from the week of hockey, serious and less so, and rolling four lines deep. 1. We resisted for so long, but the longer this contractual rift drags on, we’re reluctantly buying in to the notion the Toronto Maple Leafs‘ cap outlook may be better served by trading William Nylander. Considering the rising cap ceiling, Auston Matthews isn’t taking a penny less than Connor McDavid, is he? Mitchell Marner is now undisputed as priority Number 2, right? Albeit e
