Oilers-Senators Preview

Six wins in 11 games might by definition be the mathematic brink of mediocrity, but in the context of the Edmonton Oilers, it signifies drastic gains. The Oilers will try to further that relative success Saturday in Ottawa as the Senators attempt to end some recent home struggles. Edmonton (16-31-9) earned a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal on Thursday to even its record through the...

Oilers-Canadiens Preview

The Montreal Canadiens are back on track after failing to take advantage of what seemed to be a pair of favorable matchups last week. They would appear to have an edge Thursday night with the Western Conference-worst Edmonton Oilers coming to town. Montreal (35-15-3) has limited opponents to an average of 1.7 goals during an 8-2 run, with those two blemishes coming in the form of...

He’s Lovin’ It! McDonald Leads Islanders Past Oilers

TONIGHT’S RECAP Just because it’s ugly, doesn’t mean it counts any less. The Islanders battled poor officiating and silly mistakes to overtake the Oilers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Boy, the Oilers may have the second worst record in the NHL, but the way they play the Islanders, you would never know.  The Isles’ penalty kill almost cost them the game, as they continue to be nothing...

Oilers top Isles as Matt Hendricks scores pair of goals

  Matt Hendricks scored a pair of goals and the Edmonton Oilers topped the New York Islanders 5-2 on Sunday night. Jordan Eberle, Derek Roy and Matt Fraser also scored for the Oilers, who won for just the third time in their last 25 games.

Flames-Oilers Preview

The Edmonton Oilers have nowhere to go but up in the Western Conference, and their climb starts against a fitting opponent. After finishing dead last in the conference, the Oilers open Thursday night at home against the Calgary Flames, the team they finished closest to in 2013-14. The Oilers, who haven't made the playoffs since 2006, finished last season with 67 points, 10 back of...

The curious case of the extra forward(s)

As pre-season comes to a close and the Oilers continue to whittle down their roster lists, perhaps the most sought-after position on the final squad is not the previously discussed second line centre spot; it's looking like Leon Draisaitl's got that one all wrapped up. It's also not in net; the tandem of Scrivens and Fasth is everything Oiler fans deserve after the Dubnyk/LaBarbera...

Oilers beef up forward depth

Igrid Kaveelaars knew. The wife of Edmonton Oilers coach Dallas Eakins could see her husband was ready to return to work shortly after last season ended. A 28th place finish will do that. ''A week to 10 days go by and my wife said, `You're ready to go back to the rink now,''' Eakins said, ''I am. You want to get back in there and get back in the fight.'' Edmonton hasn't qualified...

Edmonton Oilers Look Good on Paper

The Edmonton Oilers just 11 days away now from kicking off the 2014-15 NHL season, the questions lingering on the open night roster remain heavy handed in terms of the third and fourth line options.

In defense of Anton Lander

Today, the Edmonton Oilers announced that they have agreed to terms with Anton Lander on a one-year contract extension. The 23-year-old centerman spent the 2013-14 season shuttling between a bottom-line role at the NHL level and heading up a scoring line for the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL.  Another case of a player that's too good for the farm system, but struggles to make...
