STAUFFER STUFF: Cup not won in October

In his latest blog, Bob Stauffer talks about how the Oilers are expected to improve after dropping their last two outings

The Stanley Cup is not won in October. Fortunately, most of you know that!

Last week at this time, the Edmonton Oilers were the pick of many not just to win the Western Conference title but also to claim the first Stanley Cup by a Canadian team since the Montreal Canadiens won their 24th Championship back in 1992-93.

Edmonton looked every bit the part in a convincing 3-0 victory over Calgary last Wednesday night in a game in which reigning NHL MVP Connor McDavid sniped a hat trick and the Oilers closed out the Flames, outshooting them 16-5 in the third and 45-26 overall.

STAUFFER STUFF: Renewing a Rivalry

In his latest blog, Bob Stauffer talks about the importance of recent Oilers success in the Battle of Alberta

by Bob Stauffer / Special to EdmontonOilers.com

At the height of the glory era of the Oilers 1980's dynasty, Edmonton's chief rival was Calgary.

The two teams combined to represent the Campbell Conference in every Stanley Cup Final from 1983 to 1990 with the Oilers of course winning five Stanley Cups and the Flames one. To this day, Oilers players from those teams will tell you it was those games against Calgary that defined you.

With excitement brewing in both cities in the here and now, with both teams legitimate threats -- in my opinion -- to win the Pacific Division, the Oilers sweep (for the second consecutive pre-season) in a pair of split squad games on Monday night should not go unnoticed.

Dating back to the Penticton Rookie Tournament last year, the Oilers are now 10-0 against the Flames in their last 10 meetings.
