Coach Dallas Eakins feels the time for the Oilers to be satisfied with moral victories has passed.
The Oilers have a 6-10-2 record this season, so if they don't start winning soon, they'll fall too far behind the pack. As it is they're eight games out of a Wild Card spot and while it's still very early, points get increasingly hard to make up as the season progresses. "It's time now," Eakins said. "We've shown that we can play with teams. We've shown that we can out-play teams. We've showed that we can get both points and we have to turn the heat on now. It’s time to turn the heat up on ourselves, for the result. We can't feel good about, 'This is great, it's not like last year.' Last year is gone, we're a different team, there is a different expectation and we have to find a way and we’re going to find a way to get over those humps."
