Edmonton - Jan. 30, 2015:
As far as games go, last night's tilt between the Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers was about as dull as they come. With that said, if it were not for the play of Anton Lander, Matt Fraser and Luke Gazdic the team wearing Orange and Blue could have very easily found themselves on the wrong side of what turned out to be a 3-2 victory over at Rexall Place.

Edmonton - Jan. 28, 2015: It was nice while it lasted but the Edmonton Oilers modest two game win streak came to a crashing halt on Tuesday night, as the visiting Minnesota Wild eked out a 2-1. To make matters worse, Edmonton dropped their four consecutive decision to their former starting netminder Devan Dubnyk, who has won a grand total of twelve games this season, with half of them coming against the Buffalo Sabres, Oilers and his former team the Arizona Coyotes.

Edmonton - Jan. 21, 2015: In a season that has seen the Edmonton Oilers hand their fan base one disappointing result after another, Todd Nelson’s crew decided to give them something to smile about on Tuesday night. On the strength of pair of late third period goals and one heck of a timely stop from their netminder in the shootout, the Oilers managed to head into the National Hockey League All-Star break on a two game win streak. It may not seem like much but when it comes to the Orange and Blue, it is all about baby steps. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 18, 2015: While last night's 3-2 shootout victory over the Florida Panthers had to have felt like a massive weight had been taken off the Edmonton Oilers entire roster, it was Todd Nelson's decision to use Nail Yakupov in the shootout that may very well turnout to be a moment to remember. Funny thing is, all it took was showing a little faith in the player and giving him the opportunity to be who he is. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 16, 2015: Did the Edmonton Oilers deserve a better result than the one they got on Thursdayn night against Stevn Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning? They certainly did but last night's 3-2 loss was a perfect example of a game good teams find a way to win and one that teams like the Oilers find a way to lose. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 14, 2015: At this stage of the game, expecting a team like the Edmonton Oilers to go into the building of one of the better teams in the Western Conference and come away with two points is not even remotely realistic. So watching them fall by a score of 4-2 to the St. Louis Blues is frankly no big deal. However, expecting these players to have one another’s back should be a no-brainer but shockingly enough…it continues to be a major problem with the group. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 12, 2015: Contrary to popular opinion, the Edmonton Oilers did not play that bad of a game against the Florida Panthers on Sunday night at Rexall Place. Yes they made their fair share of mistakes but in the end, it was a 4-2 loss that had far more to do with the play of the visiting Panthers and not what the Oilers did or did not do. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 10, 2015: When Todd Nelson took over as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers, this team was headed in the wrong direction. Following last night's 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, the Oilers have now gone 3-1-2 over their last six games and for the first time in ages, appear to finally have a group of confident players on their roster.

Edmonton - Jan. 7, 2015: While on the surface last night’s 4-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings can certainly be viewed as a rather difficult pill for the Edmonton Oilers to have swallowed, in actuality, it was a game in which the home side had absolutely no business even being in. However, the fact this team continues to give itself a shot at winning hockey games, is certainly a positive step in the right direction. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 5, 2015: Thanks to an off night from netminder Jaroslav Halak, some timely bounces and a better all-around effort, the Edmonton Oilers managed to knock off the visiting New York Islanders by a score of 5-2 over at Rexall Place on Sunday evening. With the victory Todd Nelson's crew has now taken six of possible eight points from their last four games. Which begs the question, why the sudden change? FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 3, 2015: From a public perception standpoint, the Edmonton Oilers organization would have loved nothing more than to watch their team respond to the firing of Dallas Eakins with a string of victories. With that said, something tells me no one in the front office team is overly disappointed with how things have played out since bringing Todd Nelson on board as interim head coach. FULL STORY
