The Oilers are back out on the road after a quick pitstop back at home, which means we had plenty to talk about on the brand new Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio. On today’s show, we’re talking about last night’s loss to the Capitals, Stuart Skinner’s brilliance, some fans turning on Jay Woodcroft, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s Tuesday podcast, we got started with news that the Heritage Classic is coming back to Edmonton in October of 2023 after Jason Gregor broke the story earlier today on the website. After 20 years since the original game between the Oilers and Canadiens, we spent a few minutes talking about who we would like to see the Oilers play with a packed house at Commonwealth Stadium. From there, we looked back at last night’s loss to the Washington Capitals and how it was another example of the Oilers having a horrible start that set the tone for a lacklustre performance. The question that no one seems to be able to answer, however, is why the Oilers can’t seem to get themselves going from the opening draw. So how do we fix the problem? Your guess is as good as ours. We also looked at the percentage of the population that is turning on Jay Woodcroft and whether the current struggles are his fault. Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a look at tomorrow’s matchup against the Arizona Coyotes and what we expect from the Oilers heading into a game they absolutely have to win.
