Oilers forward Matt Hendricks's value defies numbers, along with fellow grinders Gordon and Gazdic

You don’t look up Matt Hendricks’s goals and assists. If anything, you look down for them. He’s 13 names deep in the Oilers scoring race with seven points in 64 games, tied with Philip Larsen, who spent most of the year alternating between sick bay and the AHL. From that perspective, his contributions seem rather insignificant … until you have to go into a corner with...

Philip Larsen returns to Oilers lineup

At times, it seemed Philip Larsen was never going to get back in the lineup. The Edmonton Oilers defenceman made a rare appearance Wednesday, having been out with an undisclosed illness since mid-December. “I was struggling, I got dizzy and I didn’t have any energy,” Larsen said. “It was tough, because some days have been really good and some days it kind of comes back...

Oilers must cut down goals against to have any hope this season

The Edmonton Oilers are going to have to figure it out in a hurry. If there’s any chance of turning around a season quickly spiralling down the drain, they’re going to have to learn to play in their own end. The Oilers have conceded a mind-boggling 75 goals in their first 19 games this season. And you can’t pin it all on the goaltender. Unless Ilya Bryzgalov comes in and...

Larsen plays the role of comic book villain Two-Face for Oilers

The microcosm of the good and bad Edmonton Oilers’ free-wheeling loss Sunday to the Chicago Blackhawks was defenceman Philip Larsen, who had three assists but still finished minus-three. “Three points, but I was on for four of their goals,” said Larsen. With Justin Schultz having missed the last five games with a sore groin, Larsen slid into his spot on the first power-play...

It helped the Oilers defeat the Florida Panthers 4-3 Tuesday, snapping a five-game losing skid. “Every time you score a goal, it’s always a good feeling...
