It was one small step for the Sabres on Tuesday night as they defeated Edmonton to earn two points.
"We gave Buffalo everything they could handle. It was a winnable game for us," Oilers coach Tom Renney said. "We were very passionate, and we really tried to play within our structure. We didn't quit, and that's as important as anything."
Tonight, it is one giant step as Buff...

Eberle leads the team in scoring with 17 goals and 26 assists. He has already matched his team-leading total of 43 points from last season.
The 21-year-old Eberle has been on a tear with 30 points in his last...
You can see the Oilers future on display every time they play. Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and on it goes. A 220-pound Finn winger is trying to wiggle into the everyday lineup and said player has some nice things. Is there room? Who goes?Teemu Hartikainen is 220 pounds of mad Finn, and as he showed last spring the young man can impact the game down low and in...
We're reaching the midway point of this NHL season and lots of things are coming into view. There are many predictable things--Detroit, Chicago and Vancouver are at the top of the western conference standings and Jordan Eberle is in the top 10 in scoring. The Oilers spent a decade without a "first shot scorer" and now they're falling out of the sky. Taylor Hall...

Oilers lose 4-1 to Stars
Things are going from bad to worse for the Edmonton Oilers. What started out as an amazing season, the Oilers at one point led the western conference has now turned to what appears to be another basement finish
The Oilers are still without top defenceman Ryan Whitney, lost Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Tom Gilbert on Monday and after a game with the Dallas Stars...
This is beginning to get serious. Jordan Eberle--gap toothed man child from the flatlands--is finding the upper reaches of the NHL's scoring charts. Jordan Eberle is an emerging player, in that zone between "damn he's going to be an NHL player" and "stand back, I don't know how big this thing is gonna get!"JORDAN'S PROGRESS5x5/60: 3.24--first on...

I'm tired of being negative about the Oilers.
They are great. Really, really great. Super great. Wonderful. Best hockey team ever.
Did you watch the Dallas/Edmonton games this afternoon? I did too. It was extra-special good. Neato. Fab.
Here's the Good, the Gooder, and the Goodest (instead of my usual Good, Bad and Ugly)
- The Oilers took the lead...
Here's some random thoughts on the Oilers and hockey for ya'll to consider on Thursday:
- Dan Carcillo got a 7 game suspension for his hit to Tom Gilbert. Sounds about right. The suspension would have been longer if Gilbert was really hurt. As it turns out, he's only sorta hurt, and should be back in the Oilers line-up on Thursday against St. Louis.
- A different...
With the Edmonton Oilers’ current state of affairs, a first round draft pick in the waiting is something to get excited about. Enter Oscar Klefbom.
Drafted at 19th in the 2011 NHL entry draft with the Los Angeles pick acquired in the trade deadline day Dustin Penner trade, many were surprised Klefbom was still available. But as Klefbom’s name was called, fans already started...
