On the road again! The Oilers embarked on their first multi-game road trip of the season this week, heading to Toronto before a couple of games in New York, followed by their final game at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, and concluding this coming Tuesday against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. In this week's Oil Country social media roundup, we see what some of the players got up to in NYC, tell you how you can win a trip to watch the Oilers in San Jose, share our favourite GIFs of the week and shine the spotlight on you, the fans!
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
The Oilers are fortunate to get to visit New York City a couple of times per year for games against the Rangers, Islanders and Devils. The trips are especially rewarding for some of the younger players who haven't had as many opportunities to visit the Big Apple in their life. A few of the guys took advantage of their downtime during this road trip to check out some of the sights and sounds.
In case you hadn't heard, our Molson Canadian #GameDayLive contest is back for another season! We're giving away a trip to watch the Oilers play in San Jose at 10 "Flight Night" events, and the next one is coming up on Tuesday for the road game against the Penguins. To enter, RSVP at edmontonoilers.com/gamedaylive and show up to watch the game at MKT Fresh Food & Beer Market. We'll select one lucky fan to win the trip, and attending as many events as you can throughout the year gets you into the running to win season tickets for 2017-18!
GIFS OF THE WEEK
The Oilers MVP this season continues to be their netminder Cam Talbot, who keeps dropping all of our jaws with brilliant saves game after game. We've compiled his top stops of the week in GIF form.
