At 7-7-0 so far this season, the Edmonton Oilers continue to show signs of brilliance but still lack the kind of consistency they will need in order to make the postseason. Yes, they will put on one incredible offensive performance but at times, will struggle immensely on defense and lose games they should have won.
It’s imperative that they continue to keep at it and if they can put everything together, they will undoubtedly be a team on the rise in the North Division. Since they’re playing the Ottawa Senators tonight, a team that has only won two games this season, now is the time to show their dominance against teams that simply aren’t on their level.
Hopefully, the offensive fireworks continue as Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid have been scoring machines as of late. If they can keep being such a dynamic duo, it’s exactly what the Oilers need to keep pushing the envelope. It’s all about beating the Senators tonight to once again start a winning streak since it’s crucial to keep adding more ticks to that wins column.
