No. 10: Edmonton Oilers

Previous: No. 13

Record: 35-22-8 (78 points)

The Oilers are currently second place in the Pacific Division, having defeated the Detroit Red Wings Saturday night. Connor McDavid just keeps on scoring, and this team appears to be getting hot at the right time. It truly looks like Edmonton is going to the playoffs for the first time in a really long time. But the question remains, how far will the Oilers go?
