Awk—–ward. That’s about the only word that can be used to explain the above sign that Colorado Avalanche defenseman Nick Holden was greeted with as his team faced the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night at Rexall Place.

The Edmonton Oilers: The Positives and What Needs To Change

The Oilers are giving their fans a roller coaster ride this year and they are not enjoying it. With struggles in most aspects of the game, the Oilers are already so far out of a playoff spot that they are safe to book tee times for their summer holidays. There was a glimmer of hope for a few weeks but the highs and lows of being a fan of this team is taking a toll. Fans are now fighting...

Hall's hat trick leads Oilers to rout of Avalanche

Taylor Hall had a hat trick and an assist to help the Edmonton Oilers rebound from a lopsided defeat with an 8-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night. Ales Hemsky, David Perron, Mark Arcobello, Jordan Eberle and Sam Gagner also scored for the Oilers, who replaced a quarter of their lineup after a 6-2 loss to Phoenix on Tuesday.

Talbot plays key role as Avalanche get better of Flames

Maxime Talbot scored the tying goal and set up the go-ahead score 54 seconds later in the second period to propel the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Friday. Colorado tied the game 1-1 by capitalizing on a mistake by Calgary goaltender Karri Ramo, who had played superb until that point. Ramo was playing the puck behind the net, and his soft backhand pass...

Out of Hats, Throw a Bra

A woman at the Oilers hockey game found a solution of not having a hat to throw on the ice after a hat trick, throw your bra.  Taylor Hall scored the hat trick during the Edmonton Oilers 8-2 blow out victory against the Avalanche and this woman made him feel even more like a rock star. I’m all for attending more hockey games if this becomes a tradition.

Oilers finding a way to avoid collapsing in the face of adversity

The most impressive thing about Edmonton’s win over Colorado Thursday is how the Oilers didn’t lose it. A team that could write several books on the fine art of self-destruction had numerous opportunities to crash that game into the side of another mountain, but didn’t. The 8-2 score suggests it was an easy night at the rink, but before those three goals in the final five...

Oilers seem to have ‘go big or go home’ approach to home-ice offence

The Edmonton Oilers are taking ‘go big or go home’ to heart. There seems to be very little middle ground with the Oilers as they either dominate a team or get dominated. On Thursday it was the latter as the Oilers kept the foot on the gas in an impressive 8-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. “There is tremendous amount of skill here and we have to utilize it on a daily basis...

Oilers unleash an avalanche of goals

If the Edmonton Oilers ever need a reminder about what key saves and timely goals can do for a team, they only have to look at their work in Thursday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche. Sparked by a hat trick from Taylor Hall and backed by a solid 33-save performance from goaltender Devan Dubnyk, the Oilers scored an 8-2 victory over the Avalanche at Rexall Place. “It...

Avalanche-Canucks Preview

The Colorado Avalanche are playing much better away from home under first-year coach Patrick Roy after finishing with the fewest road victories in the NHL last season. The Avalanche will look to end an eight-game losing streak in Vancouver when they visit the Canucks on Sunday night. Colorado (20-7-0) finished the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign with a 4-16-4 road mark, but the...

Avalanche bounces back from bad loss with win over Flames

Following an embarrassing six-goal loss a night earlier to the Western Conference's worst team, the Avalanche required a rally Friday night to avoid losing to a similarly weak team and bowing twice in Alberta. Amid a cold spell that dipped thermometers to minus-38 degrees Friday morning, Colorado answered the bell in this Canadian province, beating the Calgary Flames 3-2. The...
