Oilers beat Blue Jackets 6-3 in rare afternoon victory
It is official, the last place team has been determined and for the first time in three years, it’s not the Edmonton Oilers. Of course speaking to some Columbus fans in the stands, they believe that they will not be lucky enough to actually draft first overall. To that I say, you just never know.
This Oilers win also means that the Oilers are no longer the worst Canadian team, at least for now, and because they are now tied for 71 points with the Montreal Canadiens and the New York Islanders.
Oilers lose 5-3 to Canadiens
Edmonton, like so many other hockey cities gets giddy whenever they are visited by an original six team, but none so much more than the Habs. The reason being that it’s usually a guaranteed win. The Montreal Canadiens had not won a game in Rexall Place since 1999-2000 season the Oilers have gone 9 and 2 against the Habs during that time span. Make that 9 and 3.
