    Please enable Javascript to watch this video Since their improbable run to the Stanley Cup Finals back in 2006, the Edmonton Oilers have fallen on tough times.  They have failed to make the playoffs in any of the eight seasons since that crushing Game 7 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, despite having three first-overall draft picks […]

  • This Day In Sports History (April 4th) — Wayne Gretzky

    This Day In Sports History (April 4th) — Wayne Gretzky

    The Oilers’ Taylor Hall Scores a “Bra Trick”

    I never thought about it before, but the tradition of throwing your hat onto the ice after a player on the team you’re rooting for scores three goals in a hockey game is kind of outmoded, since people don’t really wear hats all that often anymore. But one woman at Thursday night’s game between the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 12/5/2013 — Taylor Hall

    We’re less than halfway through the 2013-14 NHL season and it already appears as though the Edmonton Oilers are on the verge of another losing campaign.  But if there was ever a moment that could turn things around for this young group of hockey players, it may have taken place last night at Rexall Place.
