Breaking down two impressive wins & McDavid's injury

Ep. 368

The guys are back with a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio on a beautiful Tuesday in Edmonton. They kicked off today's pod by looking back at the Oilers two big wins on the weekend. The team smoked the Colorado Avalanche on Friday and followed it up with a very impressive victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, which prompted Tyler to ask the crew what the most impressive part of that six period stretch was. From there, they gave some love to a few individual players with Who Delivered for DoorDash. That eventually led to some talk about the news that they got today from Oilers practice. Connor McDavid is day-to-day with a lower-body injury and is questionable for tomorrow's game vs the Vegas Golden Knights. Should the team rest #97? Or is tomorrow nights game big enough that the Captain should play even if he's not at 100%? They debated it.


In the back half of the show, they played a little 3v3 centred around tomorrow's game against Vegas and Woz swung by with 'Can you clear that up for me?' where he asked just how important winning the division title actually is.

  • 382. Oilers blew a massive opportunity in Game 3

    59:11
    There's no other way to describe Game 3 other than a complete debacle for the Oilers. What started out as a fantastic performance early on turned into a train wreck after the Oilers gave up three goals in the second period in a span of under five minutes. That shocking disregard for defending meant there was plenty to discuss on the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio.We started the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a delicious debate about what the Oilers should do with their blue line ahead of Game 4. According to our pal Frank Seravalli, Kris Knoblauch hinted that the Oilers could make some changes to his defensive group, and we wondered who is the most likely to come out of the lineup. Is it Desharnais? Is it Cody Ceci? Someone else?Changing gears, we spent some time working through a couple of our signature bits, such as some betting talk for bet365, Dan's 3v3 game, and Woz's signature segment, Can You Clear That Up For Me?Starting with our betting segment, Tyler walked the squad through a few futures bets in the Oilers/Stars series before wrapping things up with a look at Game 4 between the Panthers and Rangers. For Dan's 3v3 game, we put together what we think is the best BBQ we could possibly put together if we're only allowed to bring three items and have one country song blasting on the speakers. Finally, Woz wasn't in the office today because of some computer issues, but Baggedmilk stepped up to the plate and handled the segment. 
  • 381. Oilers take Game 1 and looked damn good doing it

    34:46
    It's an on-location edition of Oilersnation Radio, and the boys had plenty to talk about after a huge Game 1 win last night in Dallas.The boys started the podcast with a delicious debate about why we believe the Oilers are good enough to win the series against a very strong Dallas Stars team. Let's be honest: The Stars are probably the biggest challenge the Oilers have had so far in these playoffs, and watching them play as well as they did last night gave us plenty of reasons to believe. Changing gears, we looked ahead at Game 2 and offered our takes on what the Oilers need to do to steal a second straight game in Dallas. From taking care of the puck in all three zones to maintaining their defensive structure, if the Oilers offer up another 60 minutes of hockey like that, then we should be in a really good spot. Finally, the boys wrapped up the podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots, which revolved around what the Oilers did well on Thursday and how they can keep it going again on Saturday. We also ran through an extended version of Hot and Cold Performers, which examined the ups and downs from the seven days of our lives.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthecup.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 380. Oilers defeat the Canucks in Game 7, move onto Dallas for WCF

    01:08:58
    The Edmonton Oilers punched their ticket to the Western Conference Final with a thrilling 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks, punching their ticket to Dallas with a clutch performance. The guys started the podcast with a delicious debate about who we would name as our three MVPs from the Oilers' series against the Vancouver Canucks. We also discussed who were the unsung heroes in that series, and it was fun to hear everyone's take on who stepped up and why. Given that there were plenty of players who rose to the challenge, the list was varied. Changing gears, we looked ahead at the series against the Dallas Stars and what to expect from an opponent that so many of us despise from those playoff series back in the 90s and early 2000s. If you're old enough to remember those series, this upcoming round against the Stars has decades worth of irritation that's likely to come. Finally, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with another round of Dan's 3v3 game and Woz's signature segment 'Can You Clear That Up For Me' before wrapping up the podcast with a few score predictions ahead of Thursday's Game 1 against the Dallas Stars.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthecup.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 379. Oilers on the brink of elimination

    01:10:01
    After an abysmal effort by the Oilers over the final 40 minutes of Game 5, today's episode of Oilersnation Radio was a tough one for all of us to record. Needless to say, we thought the second episode of ONR of the week was going to be a lot happier than it ended up being, but that's the NHL playoffs for you.We started the Friday episode of ONR with a delicious debate about what we expect the Oilers to do better in Game 6 than they did last night in Vancouver. Given that the team played as poorly as they did at Rogers Arena, there are plenty of areas where the Oilers can improve, and we tried to outline as many of those spots as possible. Changing gears, we looked at the goaltending decision that's coming for Game 6. A lot of Oilers fans would easily go back to Pickard after his performance in Vancouver, but does that mean Kris Knoblauch will feel the same way? Regardless of what decision he makes, there will be plenty of pressure on either guy to come through with a clutch performance. Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of ONR with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of Game 6 against the Vancouver Canucks. As always, the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio was a blast to record, and we all hope you had just as much fun listening as we did making it.
  • 378. Basically every Oilers player needs to be better in Game 4

    59:32
    The Oilers find themselves down 2-1 in their series against the Vancouver Canucks, and that means the pressure is on for our boys to rebound tonight at Rogers Place.We kicked off the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a delicious debate about the Oilers' goaltending, specifically whether giving Calvin Pickard the start in Game 4 was the right call. Given that Skinner has been the team's starter for the entire 2023-24 season, it is a curious decision for Kris Knoblauch to make in such a crucial playoff game. Changing gears, we looked back at Game 3 and how that game should have been an Oilers win had it not been for the costly errors in their own zone and inability to get a save. Even though a lot of Oilers fans are pointing their finger at Stuart Skinner, we talked about the larger team issues that contributed to the loss rather than just singling out one guy. Finally, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with another round of Dan's 3v3 game and Woz's signature segment 'Can You Clear That Up For Me' before wrapping up the podcast with a few score predictions ahead of tomorrow's Game 1 against the Vancouver Canucks.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnationSHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthecup.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 377. Oilers need a rebound effort in Game 2

    46:29
    It's Friday afternoon and the Oilers are hours away from taking on the Canucks for Game 2, and that meant an on-the-road edition of Oilersnation Radio to preview the evening and recap what went wrong on Wednesday.We started the podcast with a delicious debate about why we should remain optimistic ahead of Game 2 even though things went horribly wrong on Wednesday in Game 1. From the Oilers' ability to rebound after a bad night to Connor McDavid being held shotless, there were details from the first game in this series that are unlikely to repeat for two straight games.Looking back on Game 1, we talked about the way the Oilers collapsed in the third period and how they need to keep pushing forward rather than trying to lock things down. When you're up against a skilled team like the Vancouver Canucks, sitting back to try and ride the clock out is a risky move. Finally, we wrapped up the podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before offering our score predictions ahead of Game 2. After a tough loss on Wednesday, this on-the-road episode of Oilersnation Radio was a blast to record, and we all hope you had just as much fun listening as we did making it.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthecup.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 376. Previewing the Oilers vs. Canucks

    01:00:46
    Oilersnation Radio, your favourite twice-weekly podcast, is back with a fresh episode to spice up your week and talk all. Get ready for some riveting Oilers discussions and debates.Kicking off the Tuesday episode of ONR, we got started with a delicious debate about whether or not anything concerns us about the upcoming series against the Vancouver Canucks. Given that most pundits have the Oilers winning this series, should we be concerned about the Canucks rolling into the series with an underdog mentality?Sticking with the Oilers, we looked at some of the lineup details that came out this morning. Unfortunately for Edmonton, it looks like Adam Henrique will miss Game 1 with a lower-body injury sustained lane in Round 1, meaning someone else will need to step up in his place. Changing gears, we looked around the NHL at some of the other series that are already underway and whether there's a matchup outside of our own that we're excited about. We also looked back at Round 1 and discussed whether or not we were disappointed that the Golden Knights got bumped, eliminating any possibility of exacting revenge. Finally, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with another round of Dan's 3v3 game before wrapping up the podcast with a few score predictions ahead of tomorrow's Game 1 against the Vancouver Canucks. Oilersnation Radio💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthecup.ca/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 375. Talking Oilers, playoffs, and positivity with Brendan Perlini

    01:11:58
    It's Friday afternoon and that means Oilersnation Radio is back with a fresh episode of the podcast full of Oilers talk to carry you through the weekend. This week, we recapped Game 5 from Edmonton vs. L.A., looked ahead at what's to come in Round 2, and welcomed former Oiler Brendan Perlini to the show to talk playoffs, positivity, and whatever else is going on in his life. Kicking off the Friday podcast, we started ONR with a delicious debate about who was the Oilers' MVP and unsung hero during the first round of the playoffs before diving into a recap from Game 5, where the Oilers wrapped up Round 1 and sent the Kings to book tee times. We also touched on the players we thought played well and which guys we think need to step in Round 2. From there, we welcome Brendan Perlini to the podcast to talk a little bit about his time in Edmonton, the Lamborghini Perlini nickname, what it meant to him to play in Arizona now that they're leaving for Utah, and what he's got planned for his upcoming YouTube channel. Finally, we wrapped up the podcast with a look around the NHL, including the Bruins' inability to close out Leafs and tonight's Game 6 between the Canucks/Preds before wrapping up with another round of Hot and Cold performers. 💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthecup.ca/👍🏼Duraguard Fence LTD: https://www.duraguardfence.ca/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

    56:11
    Oilersnation Radio, your favourite twice-weekly podcast, is back with a fresh episode to spice up your week and talk all. Get ready for some riveting Oilers discussions and debates. This week, we discussed the Oilers' two big wins in L.A., how fantastic Stuart Skinner has been, and looked around the early days of the NHL playoffs.Kicking off this week's show, the guys started with a delicious debate about which Oiler has been the most surprising through the first four games of the playoffs so far. Whether it's Vinny Desharnais' progression on the blue line or Dylan Holloway playing incredibly well, there are plenty of players stepping up for the post-season, and it's been fun to watch the depth players have some success. Changing gears, we looked around the NHL at what's going on in the other playoff series. From the Leafs and Jets being on the brink of elimination to a potential matchup between the Oilers and Kings, it's been an electric first round so far. Needless to say, there were plenty of storylines to cover, and the results from tonight's matchups will start to set the table for what happens in round two. Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of ONR with another round of Can You Clear That Up for Me before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of tomorrow's Game 5 against the Kings. As always, the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio was a lot of fun to record, and we all hope you had just as much fun listening as we did making it.
