No. 8: Edmonton Oilers

Previous: No. 10

Record:  28-15-8 (64 points)

The Oilers and the Sharks are neck in neck for the lead in the Pacific Division, both with 64 points.  San Jose gets the first place slot for now, as they’ve played one less game than Edmonton.  But the Oilers have won seven of their last eight games and picked up points in all of them.  They will look to keep their hot streak going.
