Off the Top of My Head

As bad calls go, it’s difficult to imagine being more wrong than I was when the Edmonton Oilers fell behind the New York Rangers 3-0 at Madison Square Garden Saturday before roaring back with four goals in just over 13 minutes on the way to a 4-3 win. Word for word, I wrote: “Upside down and on fire in the ditch now. Long flight home.” Sure. To understate in the extreme, I didn’t see how the Oilers would avoid a third straight loss on their road trip and get a point, let alone two, at

Evan Bouchard photo by Bruce McCurdy Everyone knew regression was coming, but it was fun to see Evan Bouchard find the net just the same. The fact he did it twice, keying a frantic comeback and a key early season victory, had to be sweet after such a difficult start to the season.

The Day After 21.0: The Kids Are All Right

Things were looking bleak for the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon. They went into the intermission down by a score of 3-0 to the New York Rangers, staring down the barrel of going winless on their three-game swing and falling under .500 for the first time this season. Yet another matinee letdown? Not so fast! After not scoring a goal for roughly 115 minutes, the Oilers finally broke through Igor Shesterkin when Evan Bouchard sniped a shot past last year’s Vezina Trophy winner. It was t

Oilers looking to trade for a depth forward to offset Kane injury: report

The Edmonton Oilers could be looking to add a bit of jam up front. Currently sitting 18th in the league and fourth in the Pacific Division, it’s obvious that Edmonton hasn’t quite gotten off to the start it would’ve liked this year with just an 11-10 record. There’s been a few reasons the Oilers haven’t quite been up to speed after making last year’s Western Conference Finals, one of which is the long-term wrist injury to Evander Kane suffered earlier this month in a game against t

NEW YORK — Is it a mirage? Or is Saturday’s stunning come from behind win the start of something real?  Was that four-goal third period — courtesy a group of players whose lengthy lack of production has been a big reason for the situation the Edmonton Oilers find themselves in — a launching pad?  Does it mean, as our old friend Teemu Selanne used to say, that the Ketchup bottle is finally flowing in Edmonton?  “I knew, as a team, that goals were coming for us,” said Evan Boucha
