They follow it up with a Monday […]

Perfect schmerfect. It means nothing

As we’ve heard from many Oilers and Canucks fans, a perfect record in the preseason means nothing. Sure, they’re whining a bit since we beat both of their teams twice, but they do have a point.

Welcome Home, Theo Fleury

The game will be streamed live on flames.nhl.com, and begins at 7:00pm and there are still tickets available. There will be a […]
