Oilers lose 5 - 3 to Canucks
While I was enjoying the 2012 IIHF World Juniors tournament in Calgary, the Edmonton Oilers were struggling with their first game of their World Juniors road trip. The first stop was Vancouver, another difficult divisional rival game that on paper the Oilers had lost before the game even began.

So how about that Nail kid? He sounds like he could be great, and “fail for nail” has a certain je ne sais quoi to it.

Oilers extend winning streak to 6 with 3-0 win over the Kings
The Edmonton Oilers began their six game road trip in Los Angeles against a team that featured several ex Oilers; Matt Greene, Jarret Stoll, Ethan Moreau, and most recent addition Dustin Penner. The Kings and their fans are of course unhappy with the Oilers due to Dustin Penner’s production with the team, that Ryan Smyth asked for a trade back to the Oilers, and that Colin Fraser has yet to play a game as a King. As the Oilers left Staples Centre, Kings’ fans were not any more pleased.
