EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers need to end a scoring drought before snapping a losing skid.
Heading into their game against the San Jose Sharks on Friday at Rexall Place (10 p.m. ET, TSN), the Oilers have not scored at home in 182:04 of play.
They have been shut out in their past three home games and are on a four-game losing skid.
"When you look at the chances from the Dallas game, we have two wide-open nets where their goalie made a hell of a save on one and the other one we hit the crossbar," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "Those are two tap-ins usually. I'm not buying into the 'we can't score' right now. We're getting some good looks at their net.
"The one thing we worked on in practice the other day was our cycle game. That's something that maybe doesn't come naturally to our group. Our group likes to attack off the rush more than anything, but we've got to establish a cycle game and spend more time in the other team's zone."
