Oilers end season with drubbing of Canucks
By ROBERT TYCHKOWSKI, QMI Agency
EDMONTON - In what has become an all-too-familiar refrain around here, the best thing about another Edmonton Oilers season is that it is finally over.
You wouldn’t expect that a shortened, 48-game schedule would seem like it was never going to end, but this is, after all, Oil Country.
And finishing the season on their knees is what this organization does best.
For the seventh year in a row, there will be no playoffs for the once-proud franchise, just an eighth annual promise from management of better days ahead.
