The Oilers will try to end their losing streak starting on Sunday, but that task gets tougher considering their next opponents. Edmonton hosts the Sharks Sunday, then heads to California for a back-to-back road swing against the Sharks and Ducks. They then return home to host the Ducks again with one day in between.
The California teams always bring a physical matchup, but the Oilers are just focused on getting that first win to shake off this difficult stretch.
“First of all, we’ve got to get a win here,” Oilers winger Luke Gazdic said. “I think that’s the most important part. We’ve been working hard the last couple of days on different things. We know what kind of teams they are. They’re big and heavy, you hear that word heavy all the time but we’ve got to bring it and we’re looking to get a couple of points against San Jose here tomorrow.”
