Found January 23, 2013 on Razzball Hockey:
The Edmonton Oilers found themselves on the short end of a killer first period by the San Jose Sharks in one of the nine games played Tuesday night. Goaltender Devan Dubnyk was shelled by the Sharks to the tune of 17 shots and six goals against in the first 20 minutes. Not surprisingly, the Oilers lost 6-3. Patrick Marleau posted his second consecutive two-goal game while Logan Couture struck twice for the Sharks. Joe Thornton added three assists in the win. Let’s take a look at the other eight games that were a little lower scoring. Winnipeg picked up a road win over winless Washington 4-2. Tobias Enstrom picked up three assists in the win. Nicklas Backstrom had a pair of assists in the losing effort and Alexander Ovechkin picked up his first point of the season, also with an assist. Tampa Bay knocked off Carolina 4-1 behind a 35-save effort from Matthieu Garon. Vincent Lecavalier had a pair of first-period assists. Cam Ward continues to struggle in goal for Carolina allowing his s...

Edmonton Oilers forward Nail Yakupov scores game tying goal with 4.7 seconds left and then cellies hard

I can’t blame him for this epic celebration.  How would you feel scoring this amazing goal with 4.7 seconds left to tie the game after having a goal disallowed earlier that would have tied it?  Batting the shot out of the air to put it in the net was a display of pure athleticism.  It was a huge goal for the rookie, and the Oilers ended up going on to win the game in overtime...

City, Oilers agree on new arena plan

The Edmonton Oilers and the city have agreed to resurrect a deal to build a new downtown arena. City councilors have voted to accept a cost-shared deal for a $480 million rink. After surrounding infrastructure is added in, the final bill will be $601 million. The money will come from taxpayers, Oilers owner Daryl Katz and a ticket tax. The deal is still more than $100 million short...

Sour Note to Start the Season

After the sweet sounds of a melodious shootout victory in Vancouver, the Edmonton Oilers' home season started on a sour note. Literally. As the Oilers tend to do, they invited a local music artist to sing the national anthems. I don't think that this young lady will be invited back given the reaction from both fans and media on twitter. It's not as though she didn&...

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Sam Gagner scored a power-play goal 3:01 into overtime and the Edmonton Oilers rallied past the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 on Thursday night, leaving the defending Stanley Cup champions winless in three games this season.

Could Luongo Save Edmonton?

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, If the Roberto Luongo to the Edmonton Oilers rumour was an ember, Tuesday's home opener was the can of diesel your brother-in-law leaves by the wood pile. Acquiring Luongo never made a lick of sense to anyone in these parts, until, of course, the Edmonton Oilers played their home opener. After 20 minutes of play the San Jose...

Oilers 2, Kings 1

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers, trying to wash away the bitter taste of a home-opening embarrassment, had their hands full with a Los Angeles Kings team desperate for their first win of the season. But they showed what all the buzz was about Thursday with a wild, 2-1 victory at Rexall Place. The Kings thought they had it won in regulation, but Edmonton rookie Nail Yakupov...

Sharks crush Oilers behind six-goal first period

EDMONTON -- The San Jose Sharks are made up of some rather old dogs, but they managed to teach Edmonton's celebrated young pups some new tricks Tuesday. The Sharks rolled up a newspaper and smacked the Oilers in the nose, scoring six goals in the first period of a 6-3 rout at Rexall Place. "We got off to a good start," said Sharks coach Todd McLellan, whose club...

AHAHAHHAA

What was that madness on the first? 6-1? Are you kidding me? Was that for real? It was, as it turns out, since the Sharks, somewhat predictably sat back in the second and part of the third and let the Oilers creep back into the game. Smash their faces into the ice, then offer them a heater and some aspirin. Those are my boys! A full 60 minute game is still elusive, but the season...
