It’s Friday here in Nation country and that means Dustin Nielson was live on your tv screen, computer monitor, cell phone or reflecting pool (we see you wizards and witches). Make sure to follow along with your friendly neighbourhood @OilersnationHQ on twitter to always know within seconds of when Dustin will be live.

Inside the Nation is a look at the Edmonton Oilers and Dusty’s thoughts on the team. If you want to go in spoiler-free, them slid down the page and watch the video below, but if you want a brief rundown on what was talked about in the episode, then this is for you:

  • The Oilers lose three games in a row for the first time this season (last team in the NHL to do that)
  • What will happen against the Maple Leafs?
  • Which goalie is the issue? Mikko Koskinen or Mike Smith

Blame the Keepers?

  • Breaking down the goals against
  • Why does the rest of the team get a pass?
  • Jujhar Khaira bad game
  • Ethan Bear bad game
  • Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl bad together?
  • Darnell Nurse is a monster
