Going into Game Three of their first round series against the Winnipeg Jets, the Edmonton Oilers find themselves in a curious position.
The Edmonton Oilers clinched their playoff berth with a win against Vancouver on Monday night and things are looking pretty, pretty, pretty good.
The Edmonton Oilers took down the besieged Vancouver Canucks with a 3-0 win on Thursday, improving their winning streak to five.
With a victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, the Edmonton Oilers punched out their sixth win in their last seven games and their third straight on the road.
It could be argued a different Edmonton Oilers team showed up Thursday to take on the Vancouver Canucks, with the squad looking to avenge a 5-3 loss at the home opener the previous night.
