4. Edmonton Oilers

Week #9 Record: 3-0-0

Overall Record: 11-15-2

What’s Good?

The Oilers enjoyed a perfect week, winning 3-2 against Boston, 2-1 against Dallas and 4-2 against Buffalo, making it three straight wins for the club. Goaltender Anders Nilsson showed a lot of promise as he made 38 and 42 games, respectively, in those two games.

What’s Bad?

Speaking of 38 and 42 saves, what was up with that defence? To be honest, bad defence is no surprise and nothing new in Edmonton. Rookie Darnell Nurse is doing an outstanding job, but you know your defence is bad when you have a rookie as your No. 1.

What’s Next?

The Oilers will have to face two dangerous teams this week, the San José Sharks and the New York Rangers. Losing Connor McDavid hurt, but getting another win or two would feel good for everyone associated with the Oilers, and might finally get the team on track. That sounds like a joke… Oops.

Next: 3. San Jose Sharks
