Six games and counting

It was yet another disastrous start for the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night. After digging themselves a fairly deep hole over the opening thirty or so minutes of action, Dallas Eakins’ side would respond with their usual frenetic third period comeback but would ultimately end up short, falling 4-3 to the visiting Phoenix Coyotes.

Make that seven straight!!!

What can you say that hasn’t already been said about the Edmonton Oilers during the 2013-14 season. As the losses continue to pile up, one can’t help but wonder just how bad this might get for Dallas Eakins' crew.
