Oilers Gameday @ Montreal: Just Win

Oilers Gameday @ Montreal: Just Win

The Oilers are back in action tonight in Montreal as they take on Max Pacioretty, a healthy Carey Price and the rest of the Montreal Canadiens. After a very lacklustre effort against the Flyers on Wednesday, the Oilers are in a spot of trouble. It’s been said before, but this road trip (Montreal, Toronto, Columbus) could potentially be one of the final nails in the coffin for this Oiler season. Where do they sit right now you ask? 29th. The team with Connor McDavid on it has

G29 2017-18: Oilers at Canadiens

With only fear and good judgement holding us back, The Edmonton Oilers set out on the northern sea this weekend. The club still has plenty of track this season, but the train needs to turn north in a quick damned hurry. A road trip is a fine idea, not sure the destinations are ideal.
