Well, folks, this is new.
Every other division in the ‘new’ NHL has been dealt at least one proper postponement and now, it seems, its the North Division’s turn. Edmonton’s three-game set against Montreal has been entirely postponed, meaning the Oilers won’t be in action again until Saturday night in Toronto.

EDM will be fully rested (maybe too much?) for Saturday vs TOR instead of being 3rd in 4 nights and 2nd of back to back
I had that as a scheduled loss. Now.......?
So, that’s cool.
The Oilers went from ‘should be exhausted’ to ‘could be rusty’, going from a packed week to a pretty leisurely one in a matter of moments. Hopefully they get in a hard practice or two in the meantime to stay sharp, they’ve been cruising and you’d hate to see a few days off be a cause for complacency.
Meanwhile we’ll just keep trying to figure out what to do with our hands.
