Hockey Fights of the Week: 11/3 – 11/9

Rangers 1, Oilers 3

The New York Rangers dropped their second straight game to Sunday night to the Edmonton Oilers by a score of 3-1. For a box score, click here. Where do I even begin with this #$%*show? The turnovers? Lifeless play? Getting dominated by an inferior opponent? Yup, this one had it all. This was not the response you would expect to see after last night’s defeat in Toronto, which somehow...

Canucks' Tom Sestito whiffs big time on body check (VIDEO)

Canucks forward Tom Sestito was making his season debut on Saturday night against the Edmonton Oilers and he was looking to make a big impact. Too bad only the boards felt it. Early in the first period he had his sights set on Matt Hendricks — who was handling the puck below the goal line. Sestito committed himself to the hit but all he got was air. Ouch!

Just another day in Oilers paradise

Tuesday started hilariously enough. After the Oilers went from a season where they had 45pts in 48 games in 2012/2013, they went to 67pts in 82 games in 2013/2014. Yet according to Oilers GM Craig MacTavish, the coaching is better, the team is in the right spot, that no major roster shake-ups are needed this summer. Is there two different Oilers teams and I just keep happening...

The end of the road for the 13/14 Oilers

All that stands between the Edmonton Oilers and golf season is a Saturday night tilt against the equally hapless Vancouver Canucks. It's actually a good thing this season is coming to an end now, as the Oilers have been out of the playoff race for at least 50 games now. It's been hard on the fans, and even harder on the players. It was a terrible season to watch hockey in Edmonton...

Poile: Preds roster “still needs some tinkering…”

Nashville Predators General Manager David Poile has been a busy man lately. Two weeks ago, he managed to unload fourth line forward Matt Hendricks and his four-year contract in exchange for goaltender Devan Dubnyk. Then, last Thursday, he moved stay-at-home veteran defenseman Kevin Klein for the young and talented Michael Del Zotto. Could more moves be coming? “I think we’ve...
