We know, Tom, but we can't help.  Sorry bud.
We know, Tom, but we can't help. Sorry bud.

Through sixteen games, the Edmonton Oilers were 9-5-2 and cruising. We knew it wasn't sustainable, but we didn't know it would be this bad. Beginning with a 6-3 loss to Chicago on November 13th, the Oilers went 7-17-1 over their next 25 games. The raw scoring chance carnage is after the jump.
