Let the good times roll! The Oilers have won five straight games and seven of eight on the season, Cam Talbot is the hottest goalie in the NHL, it's almost Halloween AND we raised a whole pile of money this week to fight cancer! Get caught up on the world of Oil Country social media in this week's blog.
It's no secret that Oilers fans are incredibly passionate about their team, and nothing says dedication like permanent body art! A couple of fans tweeted us their #OilCountryInk this week, with Robert showing off his ode to the #Goalbuster Cam Talbot, and Nick getting Connor McDavid's number etched on his torso. Very impressive, fellas! Use the aforementioned hashtag to send us your Oilers tattoos!
Halloween is coming up on Monday, with hockey fans wearing their costumes to games and carving their favourite teams' logos into their jack-o-lanterns! Our players also celebrated with their Halloween party on Monday. Here's a look at how Oil Country is getting into the #HockeyHalloween spirit. Want us to see your photos or videos?

It's truly remarkable to see all 30 NHL teams band together in support of a common cause, and that's going on right now with the League's annual #HockeyFightsCancer initiative. Our HFC game night occurred on Wednesday as we sold Oilers toques with proceeds going to our community foundation and Kids with Cancer Society. We're thrilled to report that the toques sold out midway through the game, raising thousands of dollars for the cause. Thank you to everyone who purchased a toque and everyone who shared their support via social media!
GIFS OF THE WEEK
Oilers goalie Cam Talbot has been absolutely on fire lately, posting two shutouts, five straight victories and stopping nearly every puck that comes his way! Therefore, our favourite GIFs of the week are all in his honour.
