Stars of Big D:
Dallas Stars (4-5-1, 9 pts) @ Edmonton Oilers (4-3-2, 10 pts)
9:00 PM CT
Rexall Place, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Goals – 22nd, Goals Against – 11th, Power Play – 3rd, Penalty Kill – 6th
Edmonton comes into this game on a three game losing streak (though two have been in OT/SO) and riding an offense that hasn’t been as prolific as expected. The Oilers have scored two or fewer goals in four straight games and has dropped three of them as a result.
The explosive potential is definitely still there though considering the top-six that they’ll throw out onto the ice. Sam Gagner is, a bit surprisingly, leading the team in points and assists and has been a big weapon for the league’s third best PP. Rookie sensation Nail Yakupov leads the team with five goals and most awesome celebrations.
The usual suspects of Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall are both having nice seasons and even Ales Hemsky is scoring timely goals. 21 of the 26 goals scored...

Edmonton Oilers winger Ales Hemsky scored a power play goal in the first period of Monday night's game against the Vancouver Canucks. The hometown Oilers fans at the Rexall Arena celebrated, including one fan who wore a horse mask for no particular reason.
Unfortunately, the fan with the horse mask, along with the other Oilers fans in attendance, went home disappointed as...
No matter how hard equipment companies try to make hockey gloves as protective as humanly possible, there will always be seams where body parts stick out as the hand bends and flexes, and Edmonton Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff, who wears a pair of Cadillacs in top-of-the-top-of-the-line Warrior gloves, still ended up suffering a nasty injury during the Oilers' 3-2 overtime loss...
Recently, there has been a trend of people wearing horse head masks at sporting events and during last night's Edmonton Oilers/Vancouver Canucks game, one horse head wearing fan got caught on camera celebrating a goal.Keep an eye on the lower right hand portion of the screen as Oilers forward Ales Hemsky scores his third goal of the season.Watch as the man wearing the mask slaps...
Let's just get one thing straight:
It's not that I think Shawn Horcoff is a bad hockey player. In fact, he's an important player for the Edmonton Oilers. He's not their best player; wouldn't even put him in their Top 5. Maybe not even in their Top 10. Wait, let me think about this. Who is better than Horcoff on the Oilers? From best player down...and we'...
Edmonton Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff is expected to be out “long term” after suffering a broken knuckle while blocking a shot in the second quarter against the Vancouver Canucks.
“It got pushed right in,” said Oilers coach Ralph Krueger.
“The glove opens up just a touch and it’s not an injury that really is something that’s due to some kind of contact of any sort....
EDMONTON -- Getting even is more fun than getting mad. Just ask the Vancouver Canucks. A week after the Edmonton Oilers came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Canucks 3-2 in their own building, Vancouver rolled into Rexall Place and did the exact same thing. Trailing 2-0 after 28 minutes, the Canucks flicked the switch to "swarm" and had their way with Edmonton...
Dallas Stars 3 - Edmonton Oilers 2
Jagr is my hero.
That revamped Stars top line has caught fire these past two games. Benn scored another goal and had another assist while Morrow also had an assist. Jagr only had an assist, the game winning goal in overtime and the wonderful shushing of the Oilers crowd. Who knows why this trio has...
I said that - "Oh oh" - when I heard Mark Fistric wouldn't be returning to the game on Monday after crashing hips-first into the boards.
Going into the game, Ryan Jones was out (eye injury), Theo Peckham was out (hip injury), Eric Belanger was out (foot) and Ben Eager was out (concussion). Nikolai Khabibulin is back, but he's coming off a persistent...
Even a veteran like Jaromir Jagr can still get excited about scoring in overtime.
The 40-year-old forward scored 1:46 into the extra period, lifting the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory over the injury-riddled Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night for their first winning streak of the season.
Jagr beat goalie Devan Dubnyk with a high wrist shot for his third goal of the year.
from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
Unlike the San Jose Sharks, who have about eight natural centres amongst their top 12 forwards–moving Patty Marleau and Joe Pavelski and Scott Gomez to the wing–the Edmonton Oilers are seriously lacking in that commodity. With Shawn Horcoff breaking a knuckle on his hand and Eric Belanger busting two toes , both blocking shots...
Jamie Benn scored his first two goals of the season, and the Dallas Stars beat Colorado 3-2 on Monday, spoiling the night for Milan Hejduk as the Avalanche forward was honored for playing in his 1,000th NHL game.
Brenden Morrow also scored, and Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves for Dallas.
Hejduk had a goal, as he did in his first career game, and P.A. Parenteau added another in the...
