The Edmonton Oilers Are Close To Missing The Playoffs Again

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, What we’re dealing with now is a certified, verified, fully accredited, official ‘Death March’. It’s ‘Tragic Number’ time. That’s the opposite of ‘Magic Number’ time. After the Tuesday debacle in St. Louis in which the Blues chased Mikko Koskinen early in the second period and had a 4-0 lead at the same time the Oilers had registered their fifth shot on goal of the game en route to 7-2 drubbing, Edmonton’s ‘Tragic Number became six. Th...

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Kings’ Jeff Carter ‘proud’ to reach 700-point plateau

LOS ANGELES — Milestones are among the few things the Kings have been able to celebrate this season. To name a few, Anze Kopitar scored his 300th career goal on Jan. 5 against Edmonton; Ilya Kovalchuk recorded his 400th assist on Oct. 7 against Detroit; Dustin Brown played in his 1,100th NHL regular-season game on March 2 against Chicago and is now at 1,106 (before Monday) – just five away from tying Dave Taylor for No. 1 on the Kings’ all-time list. Another was reached Saturday when Jeff Carter...

Sabres Beat Blues – Reinhart Gets Shootout Winner

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Sam Reinhart scored the deciding goal in the shootout to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night. After Jack Eichel and Tyler Bozak traded goals to open the shootout session, Reinhart scored on Buffalo’s final attempt when he got just enough on his wrist shot to get it past Jake Allen, who got a piece of it with his glove. Ryan O’Reilly then had a chance to extend the shootout against his former team, but his backhand chance hit the crossbar....

Kings’ Drew Doughty likes seeing young guys get ice time

LOS ANGELES — Kings veteran defenseman Drew Doughty on Friday was discussing this forgettable season when the subject of some of the young players on the team was broached. Defensemen Sean Walker and Matt Roy are in their first seasons, as are forwards Austin Wagner and Carl Grundstrom.

Topics Of Interest

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - Mark Stone signed for $76 million over eight years in Las Vegas ($9.5M per), and about the very first thing an agent I’d called about an entirely different subject said was, “That’s about $95 million in New York with the taxes.” Don’t the Rangers know it. That is not only what New York franchises have to contend with in trying to compete for players with the Golden Knights, Lightning, Panthers, Stars and Predators — the five NHL teams oper...

Edmonton Oilers Final Run: 3 Good, 3 Bad, 3 Worse

With only twelve games left in the NHL season for the Edmonton Oilers and the team eight points back of a wild-card spot in the Western Conference, the playoffs aren’t looking very likely. Such a fate is unfortunate, since, the loss to the New Jersey Devils notwithstanding, the Oilers have looked pretty good as of late. Whatever happens with the last few games in March, there is some good and bad to take from the season and this final stretch run. What you choose to focus on as an Oilers fan is ...

The Edmonton Oilers With Another Bad Loss At Home

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, So, that’s how it ends? The Edmonton Oilers go 7-2-2 in their previous 11 to keep themselves marginally in the race for the final playoff position in the Western Conference. And then they do that? At home?
