Game Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver: Appreciate Greatness - Oilers Nation
Sports
Oilers fans have experienced more losses than any fanbase over the past 20 years. Since 2000/2001, the Oilers have won 655 times. They’ve played 1,533 games. There were 47 ties, and 147 OT/SO losses, where the team got a point, but Oilersnation only celebrated after 42% of the Oiler games. Some years were really bad, but times are changing in Edmonton. The Oilers are a good team, and they are entering a time when they will win more than half of the regular season games they play. Whether that leads to playoff wins remains to be seen, but after years of floundering and struggling the Oilers are finally a consistently competitive team.

That doesn’t mean they won’t have a few losing streaks, but the days of weeks, or months, of significantly more losses than wins seems like a thing of the past.

— Edmonton is 9-2 in its last 11 games. Since January 30th they have the best record in the NHL. Their .818 points percentage is the best, followed by Chicago (.750) and Florida and Carolina (.731).
