Blackhawks host the Edmonton Oilers

The Blackhawks will take on the Edmonton Oilers (4-12-2) who currently reside in the cellar of the Pacific division in the Western Conference.  Both teams will be coming into this game as the second of back to back games.

The Oilers are coming in off of a matinee loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia and the Blackhawks are coming in off of a win in Dallas. The Oilers come into town, their suitcases packed full with troubles and questions along with their Dopp kits.

There is no question that there is enough young, skilled talent on the Oilers squad, their problems have been on the defensive side of the puck. The organization recently made a questionable trade with letting the...

Niederreiter - Leading The Sound Tigers

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers are off to their best start since the 2008-09 season and while some of this early season success can be attributed to the ‘influx of NHL talent’ that every team is enjoying, there are other subtle benefits that this current NHL forced lockout has provided and the Sound Tigers are taking full advantage.

The Lockout-And So It Begins

The boys are back in town and sales will soon increase at Chipotles, Mr. Macs Canteen and dozens of restaurants in the area as the players prepare for the upcoming season.

It will not be long before locals can expect a Swedish flag flying outside a home rented by John Persson, Johan Sundstrom, David Ullstrom and Anders Nillson while larea chefs cringe as Ullstrom adds ketchup to the marinara sauce they spent hours preparing.

Matt Moulson, A Lady Byng Finalist

Edmonton Erases Flyers in Expletive Effort

After the Philadelphia Flyers 2-0 loss in Edmonton Thursday night, Coach Peter Laviolette had a choice word to describe the second period.

“Horses--t.”

That’s what Laviolette told reporters, and he may have been too kind in his assessment.

Looking for their first win in Edmonton in 11 years, the Flyers hit the ice with purpose. They outshot the Oilers 14-9, had two power play opportunities, and controlled play.

Without the all-important first goal, both teams headed to the locker rooms in a 0-0 tie. In the second, the horses--t began.

Quite simply, with the game up for grabs the Oilers decided they were going to take it. Philadelphia seemed to have decided they would let Edmonton have their way.

The home team outshot the Flyers 15-6 in the stanza and scored the game’s only two goals. Both came in the fallout of Philadelphia’s poor play in the defensive zone.

The lowly Edmonton Oilers from a Flames fan perspective

The Edmonton Oilers are yet again going to finish in the bottom of the NHL.

When Flames fans start to feel sorry for you, you know you have a problem.

My question is how do Kevin Lowe and Steve Tambellini still have jobs?

Read here for as honest look at the Oilers situation from the eyes of a Flames fan.

This could get messy.

Blue Jackets Down, Battle of Alberta Next

With a convincing victory last night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Edmonton Oilers continue to clime the Western Conference standings. 

With 29 points, the Oilers are tied for the 8th spot in the conference and tied for 2nd in the division.  Despite the recent injuries, the Oilers have kept pace to compete for a playoff spot.  Breaking a mini 3 game losing streak was important, despite the opposition.

To say the Columbus Blue Jackets have had a rough season is an understatement.  The Blue Jackets have been riding a hot goalie in Curtis Sanford.  The Oilers have the best home power play and they proved why early in the game.  Jordan E...
