It’s Friday afternoon and that can only mean that we’ve got a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio to help you finish off your week and make sense of all things Edmonton Oilers. On this week’s show, we talked about the boys being back in town, celebrated Rod Phillips' 80th birthday, hypothetical scenarios, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week's podcast, we jumped in with a look at our favourite Edmonton Oilers moments when we were actually in attendance at either Rexall Place or Rogers Place or somewhere else altogether. Whether it was a playoff game or a pre-season matchup or our first NHL game we ever went to, we spent the first chunk of the podcast talking about some of our favourite moments we've ever been able to see in person and it was interesting to hear everyone's perspectives on what a 'best moment' meant to them. From there, we jumped back to the present and looked at many of the Oilers coming back to town to prepare for a new season and whether that gets us even more excited to go even though nothing is really happening right now. We also spent a few minutes celebrating Rod Phillip's 80th birthday by offering up our favourite Rod moments from the booth as he was undoubtedly one of the best to ever do it. Next up, we looked at the Calgary Flames' offseason and whether it will be enough to get them back into the playoffs after what was a very disappointing season in the all-Canadian Division.
