The Oilers hope another epic skid in Colorado tonight. They are now 1-13-1 in their last 15. Absolutely horrid. However the last two games have started to look up for the team. A tough loss in Pittsburgh in which they played a very solid game until the Pens’ Stall line exploited some holes in the team, and a loss against the Sharks where it was just a clear case of being beaten by one of the league’s best teams. There’s not really many ways to positively spin this teams failures as of late, however things have slowly been turning around, it seems. It isn’t helping that this injury/flu bug has continued to hit.
As for the Avalanche, they are currently on a 3-game winning streak with wins over the Sabres, Flames and Devils. The Avalanche are 10-5-0 in the last 15 games.
