PLAYOFFS, BABY! Post-season fever has taken over #OilCountry as the Oilers are battling the San Jose Sharks in the first round. This week's social media roundup is all about the orange as we highlight some fan photos, tell you how you can experience playoff hockey at Rogers Place and highlight Zack Kassian's remarkable Game 2 performance.


Get loud, wear orange and let's go Oilers! That's the rallying cry of the #OrangeCrush as the city and our fans have rallied around their team in a massive way during the first week of the post-season. Keep using that hashtag for all your Oilers playoff posts!

Zack Kassian delivered one of, if not the, greatest performances of his NHL career on Friday as the Oilers shut out the Sharks 2-0 to even up their first-round series. The gritty winger delivered a series of bone-ratling hits and also scored a thrilling shorthanded breakaway goal, which ended up being the game-winner. Our top GIFs this week are all about the Zack attack!
