Justin Schultz will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night against New Jersey.

It will be his second trip to the press box in the last five games. "He needs to watch a game, reflect on his play and what his impact is offensively and defensively," coach Todd McLellan said. Schultz is attracting interest from other teams and the Oilers may pull the trigger on a trade prior to the deadline later this month.
Feb 9 - 2:51 PM

Todd McLellan was disappointed with his team's effort this weekend.

The Oilers were dismantled in Montreal on Saturday and looked even worse in an 8-1 loss to the Islanders on Sunday. "I don’t think we were were prepared to play before those goals against," said McLellan. "I was disappointed in the preparation and approach to the game. We got our butts handed to us in Montreal and we came in here and responded in a very inappropriate way. It’s very disappointing."

Sunday's 8-1 loss to the New York Islanders was embarrassing for the Edmonton Oilers.

"It wasn't easy, that’s for sure," said winger Benoit Pouliot. "They got those quick goals back to back and we looked down a little bit and kind of went on a free fall. It sucks, it's tough allowing so many goals like that." The Oilers had a players-only meeting after an ugly weekend that also saw them get blown out by Montreal on Saturday.
Feb 8 - 10:07 AM

Already down 7-1 to the Islanders, Eric Gryba fought Matt Martin to kick off the third period on Sunday.

Gryba tacked on a roughing minor for good measure earlier in the game, giving him seven PIMs in 19 minutes of work.
Feb 7 - 6:21 PM

Zack Kassian played just 9:41 in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Islanders, but managed to rack up 21 in PIMs.

They all came in the middle frame. Kassian took a ho-hum roughing minor mid way through the period, but wasted no time picking put the rest not 30 seconds after being released. Kassian fought Brian Strait and had a roughing, cross-check, and game misconduct tacked as well.
