Rough night for the Oilers last night

A 5-1 loss on home ice is never a good thing, but there was an interesting combination of events last night that made the night one of the worst for the Oilers this season.

Games involving WC teams last night:

CLB beat BUF 3-2 in reg
STL beat DET 2-1 in OT
MIN beat CAL 2-1 in SO
NSH beat CHI 3-1 in reg
PIT beat DAL 4-3 in SO
PHX beat COL 5-4 in SO
SJ beat EDM 5-1 in reg
LA beat VAN 3-2 in OT

So, of the 13 other teams playing last night from the WC, EDM lost ground to 12 of them and stayed even relative to CHI. Ouch, no wonder I don't like 3 point games.

Scary thing is the Oilers are 19th overall right now and could drop to 23rd if everything "breaks" right. Not a pleasant thought; and the way things have been going I'm not betting against it.

Drop to 23rd in one night, that is.

And the Avs were winning as well. I was watching the ticker just thinking of the season going down the drain in one night.

If all goes poorly tonight and tomorrow the Oil will be eight points out of a playoff spot, four behind the Avs, tied with the Blues and Coyotes.

That is what you call a bad weekend.
