GDB 32.0 Wrap Up: Bad start sunk the ship, Oilers fall to Sabres 3-2 in OT

By The Numbers: The Trials of (Depth) Goal-Scoring
Hello Nation, The Edmonton Oilers are once again Rulers of the Pacific, usurping the Arizona Coyotes with a 2-1 victory over the fallen Kings of Los Angeles last night. But, the victory wasn’t pretty. In fact, it was pretty dicey for the Oilers after the first period, as evidenced by the sh...

WWYDW(SE): Going All In

GDB 31.0: Tighten Up Defensively (7pm MT, SNW)
I have a strong bias towards offensive hockey. I admit it. I respect solid defence, but I gravitate towards offensive players. However, despite my love of offence, I recognize it is very difficult to win consistently in the NHL if you give up too many goals. The Oilers offensive production has be...
