How did the Oilers shut down Stamkos and Ovechkin?

Well, well, well.  The Oilers win two in a row against two good teams while shutting down two world elite players to boot.  Who’d a thunk it after that abysmal start?  I was able to attend the Capitals game and up close too. With a healthy squad (except maybe Jordan Eberle’s ongoing hand issue), they […]

Petry Versus Brodie and Public Perception

Jeff Petry is a very polarizing player among Edmonton Oilers fans. Some see the lanky defenseman as the best of a weak group of Oilers rearguards, while others point to Petry’s giveaways and lack of physical play (although he led the team in hits by a wide margin last year, hit harder dammit!) as an […] The post Petry Versus Brodie and Public Perception appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Ovie’s Choice

Although the Caps played a flat game against the Edmonton Oilers, there are still positives signs from the team in the last several games, but Barry Trotz needs to get them back to playing like the first period against Montreal to start the season. Alex Ovechkin played a lackluster game in Edmonton, which typically means […] The post Ovie’s Choice appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Oilers succeed in smothering opponents' top scorer for second game in a row

Early on in the season, the Edmonton Oilers were talking a good defensive game although they may not have been playing one. But by shutting down two of the NHL’s biggest scoring threats two nights apart, the proof is starting to be seen in the pudding. “We’re improving each game and we’re definitely trying to clean that up, not be running around and leaving guys open,...

OIlers forward Nail Yakupov more concerned about team success than increase ice time

It was a year ago at this time that Nail Yakupov had everyone in Edmonton looking up the Russian word for “pout.” After seeing his ice time slashed, followed by the embarrassment of being made a healthy scratch in Washington, against national hero Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals, the Edmonton Oilers winger was mad as hell and he wasn’t going to take it anymore. He called his...

Oilers limit Capitals offence in winning 3-2 effort

Remember when the Oilers were playing relatively well and losing, and Dallas Eakins talked about how these things all even out, and there will be nights when they get badly outplayed and win. Well, this was one of them. The Washington Capitals outplayed Edmonton so badly during stretches Wednesday night they deserved four points, not two, but there isn’t a “Deserve” column...

Oilers centre Leon Draisaitl would get no benefit from return to Prince Albert

It seems like everybody and their dog has come to the conclusion that Leon Draisaitl should be shipped back to junior. Well, not quite everyone. I think he should stay. And I don't have a dog. The idea that Draisaitl would benefit from another year in junior baffles me. He's a forward, not a defenceman, like Darnell Nurse. He's the No. 3 pick in the draft not No....

Where Do the Oilers Rank on the NHL Misery Index?

So stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but the Edmonton Oilers seem like they might be terrible this year. Last night’s win over the Lightning moved them to 1-4-1 and one point clear of dead last place in the league. They’ve been a mess defensively, the goaltending has been shaky, and the young forwards have often looked overwhelmed. While it’s still reasonably early...
