Hurricanes Handle Oilers – Niederreiter Nets 1st Two

EDMONTON — Nino Niederreiter and Lucas Wallmark each had a pair of goals and Andrei Svechnikov had a goal and two assists as the Carolina Hurricanes scored early and cruised to a 7-4 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

Cult of Hockey Player Grades: The Edmonton Oilers get battered and tattered 7-4 by the Hurricanes

The Edmonton Oilers needed a big response game Sunday after an emotional loss to Calgary the night before. They didn’t get it.

Adam Larsson’s struggles show how fragile Oilers’ roster depth is

Adam Larsson’s struggles show how fragile Oilers’ roster depth is

EDMONTON — For an Edmonton hockey writer, Adam Larsson is nothing less than a stand-up, go-to guy at times like these. And in these parts, like clockwork, a time like this tends to arrive. Down 3-0 just 11:02 into the game, and trailing 5-1 before the 25-minute mark, the Edmonton Oilers had just lost 7-4 to an average Eastern Conference team — at home — in a game that featured 35 minutes of garbage time. All of this after having lost the night before to Calgary, the kind of game that s

GDB 49.0 Wrap Up: That blew alright, Oilers lose 7-4 to Hurricanes

That game wasn’t so bad if we pretend like most of it never happened. Final Score: 7-4 Hurricanes After last night’s turd feast, I was looking for the Oilers to rebound with some kind of bounce-back effort. Something to show that they learned a lesson from getting shit-pumped on home ice by their provincial rival. Even though the Oilers won the two games leading up to last night’s loss, I still felt like they needed a drought buster to give them some confidence, and I hoped that the Hurri
