Oilers need a rebound effort in Game 2

Ep. 377

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.

    56:08
    It’s another episode of Oilersnation Radio coming to you live from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Not live as in we’re in Florida, but we are still very much alive. This week Dan and Rick are joined by Kennedy (Oilersnation Design Extraordinaire) and Brett Holden (Blue Jays Nation Expert and Oilersnation Content Machine) to talk hockey and all things Oilers and Panthers. Haters of the show will say it’s “copium” but the group went to breaking down the issues that have brought us to where we are, as well as reasons to be optimistic. The borderline/penalized play of the Finals is discussed as well as a rousing edition of Dan’s 3v3 Game. Tune in every Tuesday and Friday during the season to hear the number one Oilers centric podcast (according to our parents) podcast on your radio dial, Oilersnation Radio Podcast. 💻 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!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 385. One more sleep until the Stanley Cup Final

    01:19:54
    It's Friday afternoon, and that means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes. The major difference this week is that we're just over 24 hours away from the biggest playoff series Oilersnation has ever seen. Are you excited? We were excited.The boys started the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a delicious debate about what makes this series winnable for the Edmonton Oilers. If you believe what many of the pundits say, this series was basically over before it even started, but that was pretty much the same messaging we saw in the last round, too. So, what do the Oilers have to do to SIUTBSOHC once again? From our side of the microphone, everyone on the podcast actually loved that everyone doubts their abilities.Changing gears, we looked at the latest line combos from the team's morning skate today in Florida and wondered if this will actually be what we see tomorrow or if Kris Knoblauch is playing games. We also dove into the article that made waves around the country earlier this week when some dude named Greg Cote called Connor McDavid "McOverrated." He then doubled down after getting dunked on repeatedly by saying McDavid is an underachiever.Lastly, we wrapped up the episode of ONR with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before winding down with some score predictions ahead of Game 1 against the Florida Panthers. 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.💻 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!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 384. Counting down to the Stanley Cup Final

    01:14:17
    We're only days away from the Oilers playing in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 18 years, which meant there was plenty to talk about on the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio. From expectations to being the underdogs once again, today's fresh episode of ONR was a lot of fun to record, and we hope you enjoy listening.The Tuesday podcast kicked off with a delicious debate on the pivotal moments of the Western Conference Final. The heart-stopping comeback in Game 4 and the electrifying awakening of the power play in Game 5 were among the highlights that turned the series on its head. Changing gears, the guys looked at some of the future bets for the Stanley Cup Final and tried to decide where to put our money for the SCF. Tyler offered up a handful of bets on everything from the series outcome to who would have the most goals/points, and it was up to the fellas to decide whether that was good value or not. Finally, we wrapped up the Tuesday edition of ONR with another round of Dan's 3v3 game, which was all about tourist locations in and around Florida. Finally, the boys brought Woz in for another edition of Can You Clear That Up For Me, which was mostly centred on how this Cup run differs (if at all) from what happened back in 2006. 💻 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!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 383. Game 5 is on deck and the Oilers have a massive opportunity here

    01:13:19
    It's Friday afternoon, and that means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes.We started the Friday episode of ONR with a delicious debate about what we expect the Oilers to do in Game 5 to avoid the same result they got in the same situation in Vancouver. Given that the team played as poorly as they did in this exact spot in the last round, there are plenty of lessons the Oilers may have learned, and we tried to outline as many of those spots as possible.Changing gears, we looked at Kris Knoblauch's lineup decisions this past week ahead of Game 4. A lot of Oilers fans questioned putting Corey Perry and Philip Broberg into that game, but it was another set of moves by Knobby that really turned out well. 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 winding down with some score predictions ahead of Game 5 against the Dallas Stars. 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.💻 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!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 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.
