The Edmonton Oilers were up 3-2 on the Calgary Falmes in the second period when Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk made a mistake playing a dump in. The puck took a strange kick off of the boards and forced Dubnyk to misplay the puck, sending it right in front of the open net. Flames forward Mikael Backlund picked up the puck and shot it, but Dubnyk made a miraculous save, diving head first to stop the puck. Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney was also there to help out in case Dubnyk didn’t get back, but Dubnyk was able to make the save of the night. The save completely changed the momentum of the game and the Oilers took total control and won 8-2.

I love the Edmonton Oilers. I loathe the way this team is managed.
I don't get it. I really don't. Yes, the Oilers are a single point out of a playoff spot, and yes, they have all the momentum right now. There are 13 games remaining in the season, and if they go 8-4-1 or better over that time, they'll make the playoffs for sure. Can they play that well though? Well...
Taylor Hall had a goal and four assists in helping the Edmonton Oilers win their fifth straight with an 8-2 rout of the reeling Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.
It wasn't that long ago when the Flames dominated the provincial rivalry having won 16 of 17 games.
But Edmonton has been the better team lately, winning four of the last five including both ends of the recent home...
The Edmonton Oilers look like a team trying to make its move for a playoff spot. They’ve won five in a row and are holding on to the final spot following an 8-2 drilling of the Calgary Flames. Taylor Hall had a goal and four assists while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal and three assists to pace the Oilers.

Here's my plan today if I'm Steve Tambellini:
Step 1: Apparently defenseman Jamie McBain and Carolina Head Coach Kirk Muller don't get along. With the Pitkanen injury yesterday, the 'Canes could use two defensemen in return. The Oilers have eight D with the team, so they can make a 2 for 1 here. Oilers offer Ryan Whitney and Corey Potter to the Hurricanes for McBain...

12 games to go. The Oilers...on a five game winning streak. Did you see the game yesterday against the Calgary Flames? After the Oilers slept-walked through the first five minutes, they absolutely blew the Flames out. The top line of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle combined for 11pts. Ridiculous.
The Oilers, who now are in...
Finally, we’re starting to see some (minor) deals today. The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Jerred Smithson from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Edmonton’s fourth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. For the Panthers, they obviously don’t appear to be heading to the playoffs this year, and Smithson will be an unrestricted free agent [...]
