Oilers on the Wrong Side of Shutout

Oilers lose 3-0 to Red Wings
The Edmonton Oilers continue their challenging first road trip of November. This trip will see the Oilers play three of the four past four Stanley Cup champions. The Oilers of course didn’t fare well against the Boston Bruins on Thursday and the results of the game against the Red Wings could be seen as better for a number of reasons.

Worst vs First, Results as Expected

Oilers lose 6-3 to the Bruins
The excitement for this game seemed to surround the Taylor-Tyler comparison, and the fact that Tyler Seguin made himself unavailable to the media today only fuelled the fire. Unfortunately, not many Oilers fans could imagine a win coming out of this game. The last time the Oilers won in Boston was 15 years and 3 days ago. Yup, November 7th, 1996 was the last time the Oilers walked away from Boston Gardens with a win.

Oilers’ Week in Jasper and Potential Sunday Starting Lines

The Edmonton Oilers took to Jasper this week for a little team building and training upon the completion of the pre-season. Thanks to various tweets we have an idea of what the bus ride and week was like. At the same time, the Oilers’ lines have been shuffled for opening night and will continue to change until Tom Renney sees something he likes.

Oilers Need to Avoid Sophomore Slumps

The Edmonton Oilers face several challenges in the coming season. The team is still/already riddled with injuries, don’t appear to have complete confidence in their goaltending, and the defence is still quite young and is easily the most identifiable weakness of the roster. While the Oilers appear good up front, that will depend upon the sophomores avoiding the dreaded second year slumps.

Renney Stresses Confidence For His Players

Coach Tom Renney gets asked a million questions every day, but Monday’s questions seemed to be concerning many more topics than usual. Renney was asked about the condition of his players, his choices for cuts, his starting lineup, about the players who weren’t cut, the team trip to Jasper and everything else the people of Oil Country would like to know. The Edmonton Oilers have a portion of Renney’s interview available on their website and Jason Gregor of the Team 1260, has a much longer portion available in the 3rd hour of the October 3rd show.

Split Squad Split Results In Pre-Season Action

The Edmonton Oilers kicked off pre-season with split squad games in Edmonton against the Minnesota Wild and in Saskatoon against the Chicago Blackhawks. Both games were streamed online, but both games had technical difficulties, even after the games were over. As fantastic as technology is, it’s funny how it still disappoints. At this time an archived version of the games is not available.

Magnus Pääjärvi and Anton Lander Sticking Together

Many Oilers fans have waited patiently for this day, and it has finally arrived. Anton Lander has arrived in Edmonton and is settling in. The welcomed Swedish invasion is reaching its new level and will hopefully continue with the addition of Oscar Klefbom soon enough.

Speaking with the media on Tuesday, the first Swede to make the Oilers, Magnus Pääjärvi was eager to speak of his good friend Lander who Pääjärvi of course eagerly anticipates playing with once again.
