It’s #GAMEDAY! The #Oilers welcome Alex Ovechkin and the #Capitals for a 7PM MST start. A deeper dive into the forwards’ results so far, and MORE!

NHL: NOV 05 Oilers at Capitals
Let’s hope there aren’t too many shifts where Kris Russell is tasked with defending Alex Ovechkin tonight.

Morning, folks!

We’ve got a hockey match tonight, as your Edmonton Oilers play host to the Washington Capitals later this evening. Keep it glued to the website for our typical game day coverage, starting with our game preview in about an hour or so!

Sunil and Jeff both took a look at the Oilers’ scoring issues, with Jeff looking at the depth scoring and Sunil making note of the issues at the top of the roster.

Game previews and the like dominate the hot links today, so get familiar and then get back here throughout the day to follow along with our game day routine. See you then!
