    Stat Line of the Night — 3/26/2013 — Nikolai Khabibulin

    Prior to the start of the lockout-shortened 2012-13 NHL season, Sports Illustrated ranked the Edmonton Oilers as the top team in the Western Conference, and the third-best team in the entire league, behind the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers.  But with two-thirds of the season in the books, the Oilers once again find […]

  • This Day In Sports History (February 15th) — Wayne Gretzky

    This Day In Sports History (February 15th) — Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1980 that Wayne Gretzky tied the NHL record for most assists in a single game, with seven.  The Great One accomplished the feat during a game against the Washington Capitals, which his Oilers won by a score of 8-2. The only other player to record seven assists in a […]

    How Many NHL GMs Does it Take to Operate a Television? (Video)

    “How many NHL GMs does it take…?” That is the title of the following YouTube video.  We’ll simply assume that the entire question being ponder is, “How many NHL GMs does it take to operate a television?” As for the answer, we don’t quite have a definitive one.  What we do know, however, is that […]

    Everyone knows Canadians love their hockey. But even those hockey-loving Canucks know that sometimes the games can be a little boring. And when that happens, they don’t just sit there. They turn to their other love—beer—for entertainment. We saw just such a scenario on Monday night during the Canucks-Oilers game in Edmonton. Or actually, we […]

    The Edmonton Oilers have accumulated a lousy 84 wins over the past three seasons.  As a result, they have finished in last place in the NHL’s Northeast Division in each of those seasons, and they have actually finished dead last in two of those season (the other, last season, saw them finish second-last, ahead of […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/23/12 — Devan Dubnyk

    With a stockpile of young, talented forwards, scoring hasn’t been much of an issue for the Edmonton Oilers this season, as their 2.63 goals/game ranks 15th among all NHL teams.  Defense and goaltending, on the other hand, has been a problem for the most part this season, but it wasn’t an issue during last night’s […]

    Today we were at TPS are celebrating “Family Day” – it’s an Ontario (Canada) thing.  As a result, we will be going light for the day, but we’ll still be taking the time to bring you some great clips from the weekend, like this one, which features a tuna on the ice at Rexall Place […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/2/12 — Sam Gagner

    Prior to last night, the Edmonton Oilers’ record for most points in a game was held by two of the greatest players to ever play the game; Paul Coffey and Wayne Gretzky.  Following last night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, they now find themselves sharing that record with a somewhat unlikely third member of the […]

    Yesterday we provided you all with footage of the incident that took place during the pregame warm-up prior to Tuesday night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Columbus Blue Jackets, which resulted in a nasty cut above the eye of Oilers forward Taylor Hall. Today, several media outlets have released photographs of the black […]

    The “kids” that have brought a much needed spark to the Edmonton Oilers’ line-up this season have suddenly been dealt their fair share of bad luck.  Heading into last night’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Oilers were already without their leading scorer Jordan Eberle (leg injury), and 2011 first-overall draft pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins […]

    Brian Burke Was Going To Rent A Barn To Fight Kevin Lowe (Video)

    Brain Burke and Kevin Lowe may get along well now, but that wasn’t always the case. Back in the summer of 2007, the Ducks had just won the franchise’s first Stanley Cup, and forward Dustin Penner was a big part of that, recording 29 goals in the regular season.  That seemed to impress Edmonton Oilers […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gagner vs. Halischuk — 11/22/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gagner vs. Halischuk — 11/22/11

    Sam Gagner and Matt Halischuk’s second period bout during last night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Nashville Predators was by no means an overly-exciting fight.  But when you consider the fact that it was Halischuk’s first career fight and Gagner’s first fight of the season, we can’t help but give both players props […]
