The Oilers control their own destiny. They’ve got four games remaining in the 2016-17 NHL season, and they’ll win the Pacific Division if they win all four. Tonight, they’ll face off against the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings were officially eliminated from postseason contention with a loss to the Coyotes on Sunday. What a way to go.

What To Watch For From The Oilers

The Oilers need just three points out of a possible eight in order to hit the 100 point mark on the season. More importantly, they control their own destiny in regards to the Pacific Division crown. Anaheim is two points up on the Oilers with one more game played. Should the Oilers and Ducks finish the season tied in points, the first tiebreaker is regulation/overtime wins. Right now, the Oilers and Ducks each have 40.

Hey, funny story, guys.

We’ve still got to play the games even when they’re meaningless.

This is a weird feeling. I don’t like this feeling, do you? I feel a little like I’m missing something.

This usually happens to us at about the second week of November.

Final Thought

Connor McDavid is six points from 100 points on the year. The Oilers are three points from 100 on the year. What does it all mean? Can’t say for sure, but It’s probably a three point game for #97 tonight.
