Teams Are Fearing The Edmonton Oilers After Recent Stat Revealed

Last night, the Edmonton Oilers dominated the Anaheim Ducks with a score of 6-0, showcasing their impressive skill and defeating another Pacific Division competitor. But this is just one example of the Oilers' recent success, which Jack Michaels has further elaborated on.

According to Michaels' tweet, the Oilers have been on fire lately, with 10 straight games with points and 13 wins out of their last 16. As Michaels notes, this streak has included victories against playoff-bound teams such as Dallas, Vegas, Boston, and Toronto. This surge has propelled the Oilers up in the power rankings, with the team currently boasting three players on pace for a 100-point season: Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Draisaitl's hat trick against Anaheim on Saturday also puts him at 50 goals on the season.

The Oilers' success is not just due to their offensive firepower, but also their quality goaltending from Stuart Skinner. The rookie has won 10 out of his last 12 games and has a .908 save percentage, proving to be a valuable asset to the team.

All of this points to a well-oiled machine that is primed to make a deep run in the postseason, with much of the credit going to the team's general manager, Ken Holland. As a recent article in Defector notes, the Oilers have the potential to make a serious impact this season.
