How did the Oilers shut down Stamkos and Ovechkin?

Well, well, well.  The Oilers win two in a row against two good teams while shutting down two world elite players to boot.  Who’d a thunk it after that abysmal start?  I was able to attend the Capitals game and up close too. With a healthy squad (except maybe Jordan Eberle’s ongoing hand issue), they […]

Good luck charm? Scrivens dons mask for charity, gets Oilers' first W

The art of goalie-mask design has become increasingly that in recent years — art. But art, as they say, is subjective. And like in other forms, goalie-mask art can also carry a purpose. Just ask Ben Scrivens. The Edmonton Oilers goalie on Monday announced he would lend his support to the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta with a new program he calls "Ben's Netminders"...

Ryan Whitney, a current defenseman for HC Sochi and former skater for the Edmonton Oilers, had a bit of fun at the expense of his old side.

Angry Oilers fan throws shirt on ice ... with phone still in it

Edmonton Oilers fans are quitting on their team a bit early this year.
