Oilers Gameday: December 5th vs Los Angeles   

The Oilers begin a 6 game home stand tonight, taking on the Kings, who sit well behind them in the Pacific Division standings at 9-9-4. The Kings have lost 6 of their last 7 games and have plummeted to 6th in the division after a promising start to the season.   Although the Kings have a few key players out due to injury, notably Doughty who has returned to the lineup, it doesn’t quite measure up against what the Oilers have been dealing with. The good news for the Oilers is that some key pl

The Sherwood Ford Giant Pre Game Show – Game 23 vs LA

The Oilers are back from their short one-game road trip and are set to host the LA Kings at Rogers Place tonight. Caroline and Tyler get you set for the game with another Sherwood Ford GIANT Pre Game Show! The Oilers haven’t lost back-to-back games yet this season and a big reason why is because they have been absolutely dominant on home ice with a record of 9-1-0. Their opponent tonight, the LA Kings, have really cooled off since the start of the season. They have just three wins in their la

For the first time in nearly two years, the Edmonton Oilers will faceoff against the Los Angeles Kings and this here GDB is all set and ready to help us prepare for what could be another four-point game. There’s nothing better than a little Sunday Funday action between two Pacific Division opponents, amirite? As much as last year’s all-Canadian division was fun to a point, I have to admit how much I love that we’ve gotten back to a normal NHL schedule that sees the Oilers playing against

Game Notes: Los Angeles Kings @ Edmonton Oilers — Game 23

After losing to the Kraken in Seattle, the Oilers will begin a six-game homestand when they host the Los Angeles Kings in Edmonton. 1. The Oilers have done a very admirable job with almost their entire blueline on the shelf at the same time. Despite not having Darnell Nurse, Duncan Keith, Slater Koekkoek, Edmonton beat the Golden Knights in Vegas, and then, without Cody Ceci, they beat the Penguins in Edmonton. The surprising and impressive three-game winning streak came to an end in Seattle

The Edmonton Oilers are getting some huge reinforcements as the team activated defenceman Darnell Nurse from the injured reserve.

Risky Business: King for a Day

For the second straight game, the Edmonton Oilers are squaring off against a team that I think they should beat more often than not, but as we’ve seen so far in Risky Business, our thoughts about what should happen don’t mean squat as for what happens on the ice. Even so, I still think tonight’s matchup against the Kings is one that the Oilers should win and I plan on betting accordingly. We be bettin’, fam! LAST GAME I don’t want to talk about it. That game was horrible all around, a
