CLINCHED! What a week for the Oilers as they punched their ticket to the #StanleyCup Playoffs and are now gunning for a Pacific Division title! In this week's social media roundup, we look back on the historic last seven days and get you ready for all the excitement headed your way in the coming weeks. Enjoy!


What better way to gear up for the playoffs than to party it up with a few hundred of your closest Oilers fan friends, plus alumni Fernando Pisani and Ethan Moreau, to watch the second-last game of the regular season next Saturday! The first 250 people to RSVP for the Molson Canadian #GameDayLive finale at The Ranch Roadhouse will get to meet Pisani and Moreau before the game, and everyone who RSVPs will receive a complimentary appetizer and beer sampling to watch the matchup against the Canucks.


Our #FanFlight contest with Air Canada was a huge success as Rob Berg got to bring his sister Michele to Edmonton all the way from Florida for an Oilers game! Rob and Michele were separated more than 40 years ago and have only recently reconnected. Take a moment and watch their heartwarming reunion thanks to this contest!

 Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: #Oilers fan Rob Berg & his sister Michele were reunited in #yeg as winners of this year's @AirCanada #FanFlight contest.



We have to go back to Tuesday's clinching game against the Kings for all the top GIF moments from this past week!

As much as the focus was on the Oilers players and coaches this week as they clinched their post-season berth, the real heroes are our fans who have stuck with the team through thick and thin! As always, we're so proud to shine the spotlight on some of them. Want to see your photos or videos in our spotlight next week?
