Despite coming out with two solid efforts against the San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks earlier in the week, the Edmonton Oilers looked poised to finish the road portion of the 2013-14 schedule in style on Friday night in Phoenix. Dallas Eakins’ side were a mere forty-one seconds away from pulling off the “perfect” road trip. Three games…three solid showings…but ultimately three regulation time losses.

Despite losing their second game in as many nights to one of the premier teams in the Western Conference, the Edmonton Oilers have to be somewhat satisfied with their play over their last couple of outings.

The Edmonton Oilers kicked off their final road drop of the season with the result most expected on Tuesday evening, dropping a 5-4 decision to the San Jose Sharks.

On Friday night the Edmonton Oilers used their fair share of bounces to edge the Anaheim Ducks by a score of 4-3 in overtime. Fast forward forty-eight hours and suddenly the shoe was on the other foot, as the New York Rangers had everything go their way in cruising to an easy 5-0 victory over at Rexall Place.

When it comes to improving his NHL roster, Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish will have himself a rather lengthy to-do-list this summer and upgrading his blueline will likely be at the very top of that list. Pulling off such a move won't be easy and in all likelihood, it will probably cost the organization one of Oscar Klefbom, Martin Marincin or Jeff Petry.
