Benoit Pouliot scored a goal in a 5-1 loss to the Habs on Saturday.

His short-handed goal was his 12th goal of the season and his seventh point in his last seven games. He is a solid complementary player but remains too inconsistent to trust on an every games basis. The only advice we can give is to ride him while he is hot.

Cam Talbot stopped 19 of 23 shots being being pulled in a 5-1 loss to the Habs on Saturday.

Talbot made some key saves but wasn't good enough for the Oilers today. After strong back-to-back games, he continued his inconsistent season today. Even with the poor performance today, he could still prove worthy of a spot on your fantasy team down the stretch.

Cam Talbot will start in goal for the Oilers on Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens.

Talbot has given up three goals on a total of 75 shots over his previous two games and is red hot coming out of the all-star break. With the return of Connor McDavid, Talbot is getting an offensive boost that will help him improve his 11-15-3 record. The Oilers could be a sleeper team down the stretch of the season.

Connor McDavid's next milestone is his first game in Montreal, which will take place Saturday afternoon.

"I’m really excited about it," McDavid said. "I played here last year in the World Juniors and it’s obviously one of the greatest hockey cities of all time. Definitely looking forward to it. Saturday, Hockey Day in Canada in Montreal, it doesn’t get any better than that." McDavid will be looking to stay hot after recording five points in two games since returning from a broken clavicle.

Nail Yakupov had an unfortunate distinction on Thursday.

Yakupov was the only Oilers forward that dressed for Thursday's 7-2 victory against Ottawa to finish without a single point. Edmonton also earned a 5-1 win on Tuesday, but Yakupov was held off the scoresheet in that contest as well. The former first overall pick has four goals and 14 points in 30 contests this season.

Connor McDavid registered two assists in Edmonton's 7-2 victory over Ottawa Thursday night.

McDavid now has five points in two games since returning from a broken clavicle, bringing him up to six goals and 11 assists in 16 contests in his rookie season. Edmonton has cleanly won both of those contests, in part because of McDavid's efforts. It will be interesting to see in the coming weeks if the Oilers can build on this momentum or fall back down even with a healthy McDavid.
Feb 5 - 10:58 AM

Cam Talbot allowed two goals on 38 shots as the Oilers easily beat the Senators 7-2 on Thursday night.

Talbot pitched his second straight 36-save winning performance and improved to 10-15-3 this season with a 2.54 goals against average and .916 save percentage.
Feb 5 - 12:01 AM

Jordan Eberle led the potent Edmonton Oilers offence on Thursday night with two goals and an assist in their 7-2 victory over Ottawa.

All Oilers forwards except for Nail Yakupov managed to chip in at least a point. Eberle and his linemates Connor McDavid and Benoit Pouliot combined for seven points in the game. Eberle now has 27 points in 39 games this season.
Feb 4 - 11:51 PM

Griffin Reinhart will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Senators.

The 22-year-old was recalled from the minors earlier this week. He has one assist in 14 games this season. Anton Lander and Adam Clendening will join Reinhart in the press box.

The Edmonton Oilers have activated Brandon Davidson from the injured reserve list.

Davidson hasn't played since Jan. 21 due to an undisclosed injury. Now that he's activated, he should participate in Thursday's contest.
Feb 4 - 6:09 PM

Cam Talbot is expected to start on Thursday.

It will be Talbot's 13th start in Edmonton's last 15 contests. He has a 2.54 GAA and .916 save percentage in 30 games this season.
Feb 4 - 1:54 PM

Luke Gazdic went unclaimed on waivers.

As anticipated, Edmonton responded by sending Gazdic to the AHL. He has a goal and 22 penalty minutes in 28 games this season.
Feb 4 - 1:14 PM

Brandon Davidson (undisclosed) will probably be back on Thursday.

That's not set in stone though and obviously Davidson needs to be taken off of the injured reserve list before that can happen. Davidson hasn't played since Jan. 21.
Feb 4 - 12:15 PM

Justin Schultz (illness) is ready to return on Thursday.

Schultz missed Tuesday's game due to the illness. He has three goals and nine points in 36 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 4 - 12:14 PM

Oscar Klefbom now has a leg infection.

Klefbom was originally out with a broken finger. That's healed, but his more recent injury is preventing him from skating. With this new development, there's no timetable for his return.
