Have we all calmed down about the Oilers hiring Scott Howson as a Pro Scout yet? Because I'd like to have a conversation with you about tonight's hockey game.
Shawn Horcoff scored on a breakaway tonight after Gabriel Landeskog tripped over his own feet and the Avs goalie got completely distracted by it. And for the second game in a row, Horcoff has been hailed by fans...

Oilers/Avs set to go in a few hours. Will the Oilers be buried in snow, or will they...ummm, what does Oil do to snow? Make it greasy?
A few notes going into the battle:
- Ryan Jones is back. Oilers are saying Teemu Hartikainen has the flu. I think they needed to get Jones back playing and Hartikainen is a kid, and we all know how the Oilers deal with those. Jones will be playing...
Devan Dubnyk stopped 36 shots for his first shutout in nearly a year and Shawn Horcoff scored a goal in his second straight game since returning from a broken knuckle, helping the Edmonton Oilers beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-0 on Tuesday night.
Sam Gagner, Magnus Paajarvi and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored for the Oilers, who went 3-4-2 on a nine-game road trip.

The Edmonton Oilers will be in a strange position this year at the NHL Trade Deadline. It's creeping up on us...only 23 days away. Games-wise, only 10 games away. Of those 10, seven will be home games. While the Oilers aren't in a playoff position now, win 7 of 10 over the stretch and the Oilers could be buyers instead of sellers at the deadline.

In the crowded Northwest division, only five points separate the Edmonton Oilers (who are currently in fourth place) and the Minnesota Wild, who, while in first, sit there less than comfortably. One slot higher than the Oilers are the Avalanche, who, like the team from Edmonton, sit near .500 and feel the push to right the ship and succeed now rather...
The Edmonton Oilers' season looked to be spiraling south in a hurry, but a strong conclusion to their recent road trip suggests otherwise - especially with the team's captain back on the ice and finding a rhythm.
The Detroit Red Wings, meanwhile, are still trying to stop their own skid as they visit the Oilers on Friday night in hopes of continuing their recent dominance...
Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene shot the puck at just the right time to win the game for the Avs' 3-2 over the San Jose Sharks Sunday night.
Duchene contained a deflection from teammate P.A. Parenteau's slap shot from inside the blue line and
