Oilers continue to fire blanks

Edmonton - Oct. 18, 2014: While the Edmonton Oilers may have played better in falling 2-0 to the Vancouver Canucks on Friday evening at Rexall Place, this team's inability to score goals continues to plague them on a nightly basis. Since Dallas Eakins has taken over the club, they have scored two goals or fewer in fifty-one of eighty-seven games and won exactly three of those games. With that being the case, one would think, the time to address the issue would be the here and now. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Oct. 17, 2014: With their season hanging in the balance, the Edmonton Oilers will kick-off a seven game homestand against the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night at Rexall Place.

Despite jumping out to an early lead, Dallas Eakins' crew still found a way to blow three different two goal advantages and were frankly lucky to even get this one into overtime. While on paper this group may be improved, clearly closing out hockey games continues to be major problem. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Oct. 5, 2014: Ben Scrivens delivered what was by far and away his worst performance of the pre-season in the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks in Sunday night pre-season action. While both Scrivens and Viktor Fasth will likely get their chance at proving they are capable of being a No. 1 goalie, last night's misstep will force Dallas Eakins into making a decision as to who he will turn to in Thursday's season opener against the Calgary Flames.
