"Are the Oilers for real?" is a question a lot of people around the NHL are asking right now, and for a change they're asking because the team is doing something good. So good in fact, that the Oilers found themselves at the top of the NHL's standings following their win on Sunday, and can return there with a win and some help from the Islanders tonight. Since Sunday two whole days have passed without an Oilers game, a break in the schedule that suddenly seems unbearably long. Winning really is a lot of fun.
No word on any changes to the lineup that blanked the Jets on Sunday afternoon.
