    Everyone played poorly last game except for Smith. The entire reason we have Duncan Keith is for these types of games, he's not great anymore but you don't bench him, especially considering games 1-3 were his 3 best as an Oiler. Puljujarvi hasn't looked the same, but he is better than the...

    Cautious is the perfect word for it. SN has always been awful, after the Don Cherry incident it got worse, everyone in the intermissions is afraid to say anything entertaining out of fear of offending somebody. They don't put in effort into the broadcasts, have no care for hiring the proper...

    What a huge win for the Orange and Blue. We put ourselves in a must win situation for Game 2 and we came through big time with a 6-0 victory over the LA Kings! First win in 7 playoff games for the team and we did it in dominating fashion. The frustration must've boiled over losing so many 1 goal...

    Dominant game tonight in Nashville, Oilers played solid and controlled the play from start to finish. Mike Smith records his first shutout of the season, Draisaitl back to back hattricks in Bridgestone arena, although the first of the two dates back to 2020. He now has 19 goals in 20 career...

    The Trade Deadline is complete and it was a good one for the Edmonton Oilers. We made 2 trades today: ***Oilers acquire defensemen Brett Kulak (50% retained) from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a 2022 2nd Round Pick (changes to 2023 2nd based on unlikely conditions), a 2024 7th round...

    The market isn't looking great for goalies, Fleury and Varlamov won't waive their NTC for Edmonton, James Reimer is hurt, Martin Jones is no better than what we have, and it has to be money in money out. Koskinen is the best we got, I'd prefer we play Skinner over Smith but management doesn't...

    What a crazy game tonight at Rogers Place as the Oilers get their 3rd straight W with a final score of 7-5. We started off the game super well, probably our best start to a matchup all year long. In the first 4 and a half minutes we kept Detroit to under 10 seconds in our zone and established...

    What a game by us to cap off a perfect night of hockey. A 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in another dominating performance against the defending cup champs. Mikko Koskinen was solid but Brian Elliott for the Tampa Bay Lightning was absolutely incredible, another backup goalie looking to...

    A 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning but the annoying thing is we really played well tonight. Possession in favour of Edmonton (Corsi 60-41) Fenwick (Unblocked Shot Attempts) in favour of Edmonton 48-32 Shots in favour of Edmonton 30-23 Scoring Chances in favour of Edmonton 30-28 High Danger...

    Honestly I wouldn't say it was all that horrific. 7-3 is a rough score, but to me a horrific end would be that Woodcroft's system doesn't work and we merely received a coaching bump, however what I saw tonight was a team who still played good 5 on 5 hockey. It was our 5th game in 7 days, we got...

    Another divisional game, and another divisional win for your Oilers. Now 4-0 under Woodcroft and 13-3 within the division. Great game played by us again, I felt like Smith wasn't at his best tonight but he did make some key saves especially at the end of the 2nd to keep the momentum in our...

    This was one my favourite things. Jay Woodcroft pays some respect to Tippett knowing he's an experienced coach by giving Devin Shore at least a chance, maybe Tippett saw something in him that Woodcroft doesn't, every guy deserves a chance to prove themselves. Shore has a pretty atrocious few...

    2021/22 Edmonton Oilers

    Another huge win for the Oilers who improve to 3-0 under Woodcroft. Not as convincing as the win last night against the Sharks but I feel as though we played very well in both games and that LA also just played a really good game tonight. Mike Smith with another solid performance (30 saves)...

    2021/22 Edmonton Oilers

    Oilers looked like a completely different team tonight. Getting that huge save from Skinner and 2 goals off of deflections early on is luck, and luck is something we've been needing. The rest of the game was a perfect road game by us, and a demonstration of Jay Woodcrofts system, he doesn't...
