Willis: Oilers’ Jack Campbell will be better, but can he be a true No. 1?

Short-term, Campbell is virtually certain to rebound. Long-term, there are questions the Oilers need answered.

Oilersnation Everyday: A night in the Big Apple

The Edmonton Oilers have been consistently inconsistent since losing to the New Jersey Devils at Rogers Place on November 3rd. Since that game, they’ve struggled to put wins together, however, they are not staying in the loss column for long. It is a streak they will want to break free from, and tonight they will have a chance to gain two more points against the New York Islanders. To get your prepared for tonight’s action on the ice, Tyler Yaremchuk and Jay Downton will be around for the S

Risky Business: Island Boys

Risky Business is brought to you by NHL betting site Betway! The Oilers really need to win this one, don’t they? Not that are any easy games in the NHL, that’s not what I’m saying, but I absolutely feel like the Islanders are the team that the Oilers need to beat on this road trip. That said, the boys are playing such inconsistent hockey right now that it makes betting on them almost impossible, and that’s why I’m taking a much more cautious approach for the rest of the road trip or

Numbers show Skinner is owning Campbell in battle for Oilers' crease

Numbers show Skinner is owning Campbell in battle for Oilers' crease

If the Edmonton Oilers didn’t have a full-on goaltending controversy brewing before, they do now. Jack Campbell, the Oilers’ $25 million man, has struggled mightily through his first month and a bit with his new club, while rookie Stuart Skinner has been lights out by every metric in comparison to his veteran counterpart. And it’s set the stage for the slumping Campbell, in his first season of a five-year deal, to take a backup role for the time being. Skinner’s started four straight,

Game Notes Oilers @ Islanders: Stop Backing In

Through 19 games the Oilers have yet to find a consistent defensive game. Even when they won five games in a row, they had two games where they allowed four and five goals against. Their entire team has struggled to find consistency in their own zone, and they need to wake up and play smarter and with more conviction. — Their willingness to play Santa Claus and gift easy goals to the opposition needs to stop. Stuart Skinner has played very well this season, but his miscue gave the Devils a 2

Throwback to the Oilers beating the Islanders for their first Stanley Cup in 1984

Just under 40 years ago, the Edmonton Oilers going up against the New York Islanders was the most anticipated match-up in hockey. The 1984 Stanley Cup Final featured the dynasty Islanders, a team who had won four consecutive championships and who were looking to become just the second team ever to win five years in a row, and the young Oilers, the team that was on the rise and looking to take the crown. The previous season, the Oilers breezed through the regular season, putting up a 47-21-12 r

NHL Rumors: Oilers, Maple Leafs, Senators and Canucks

Could the Oilers be eyeing Sam Lafferty? Should they have went Phil Kessel and not Jesse Puljujarvi? Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal: Both Elliotte Friedman and Frank Seravalli have brought up forward Sam Lafferty with regards to the Edmonton Oilers. He carries a $1.15 million salary cap through next season and if GM Ken Holland were to work something out, it would have to be money-in, money-out. Believe that the Oilers were interested in Phil Kessel before he signed with the Vegas Golden

Game 20 2022-23: Oilers at Islanders

Game 20 2022-23: Oilers at Islanders

Since Connor McDavid arrived in the NHL, the Edmonton Oilers are 7-3-1 against the New York Islanders. That sounds contrary to my memory, so I checked. My memory flagged the losses because they were by big scores: NYI 8-1 on February 7, 2016; 4-1 NYI on March 7, 2017; 5-2 NYI on February 16, 2019. It’s that 8-1 game sure as hell that stuck in my brain. Funny how the mind works. NEW from @TheAthleticNHL The Edmonton Oilers and early-season trades during road tripshttps://t.co/Pm92hr
