Oilers Run Out of Gas In 5-0 Loss To Flames

Oilers Run Out of Gas In 5-0 Loss To Flames

The Edmonton Oilers started their road trip with a 2-0-1 record. On Saturday night, however, the wheels finally came off the train. The Oilers were never really in it as they dropped a 5-0 decision to the Calgary Flames in the latest installment of the ‘Battle of Alberta’. It was Edmonton’s fourth road game in six days, against a Flames team well rested, hours after a memorial service for their late teammate and on the heels of a stretch where the Oilers were winning but not playing well.

NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers, and the Calgary Flames Ahead of the Trade Deadline

Sportsnet: Chris Johnston when asked what is going on with the third-place Edmonton Oilers ahead of the trade deadline. “Well, based on what Ken Holland told the reporters , it certainly sounds like he’s more of a bargain shopper than a big game hunting at this time of year. I think that’s reflected. I think a defenseman is on his wish list here. They were in on talks on Patrik Nemeth before he was moved to Colorado on Friday night. I think someone like Michael Del Zotto, who Ron mention

McDavid calls out NHL for scheduling game after Cave's memorial

Oilers superstar Connor McDavid expressed disappointment in the NHL for scheduling Edmonton to play the Calgary Flames on Saturday, mere hours after former teammate Colby Cave's memorial. "You're asking a lot from guys to sit through something like that and remember your teammate and see what they're going through, the whole family, and expect to perform that night," McDavid said postgame, per The Athletic's Daniel Nugent-Bowman. "I'm not sure what the league was really thinking there." Cave, a

Cold Water Flat

Laurent Brossoit, Leon Draisaitl photo by Mark Williams I’m not sure there is much to be gained in going back over the mess that was HNIC’s second game from the Saddledome last night. Game, set, match. As the game wandered along, I was struck by just how many young players are on the roster, here and pushing to be part of the Oilers through the end of the decade. Caleb Jones and Ethan Bear struggled, Jesse Puljujarvi was 0-3 in on-ice goal differential at five on five, Kailer Yamamot

Edmonton Oilers Talk: Trade Focus Shifts to Top-Six Winger?

The latest Edmonton Oilers trade deadline news that’s been passed my way has the club in deep negotiations with the Buffalo Sabres for a player Oilers fans know very well as well as a winger that the fanbase has clamored over since his time in Ottawa.

The Day After: There’s more to life than hockey

A mere 10 hours after the Edmonton Oilers watched their friend and teammate Colby Cave’s celebration of life after his tragic passing a year ago, they had to lace up their skates and try to play a hockey game. Edmonton gave an admiral effort in a 5-0 loss to the Calgary Flames and while there’s no excuses, said captain Connor McDavid, it was far from an easy day for anyone involved. “Some days are more than just about hockey,” said an emotional McDavid after the game. “Obviously the

McDavid, Oilers question NHL’s decision to schedule game after Cave memorial

There are excuses for losing in professional sports, and there are reasons for losing. Sort of like how a player can play hurt, but he can’t play injured. On Saturday night the Edmonton Oilers were asked to play their third game in four nights, their fourth in six nights — all on the road — against a Calgary Flames team that hadn’t played since Monday. Those aren’t reasons for a 5-0 loss. Those are excuses for a 5-0 loss. Here, however, is a reason for the flat, emotionless effort
