Ken Hitchcock makes his return to coaching Tuesday night hours after the Oilers announced that Todd McLellan had been relieved of his duties. There’s a lot to be fixed in Edmonton.
• After starting the year 8-4-1, the Oilers have lost six of their last six games, with all six losses coming in regulation.
• Edmonton is allowing 3.30 goals per game this season (t-24th in NHL)
• When Connor McDavid scores 2 or more points, Edmonton is 6-1-1
• When McDavid scores 1 or fewer points, Edmonton is 3-9-0
“It seems like when we get down we get down too much,” said defenseman Adam Larsson. “The lows seem to be really low right now. If we can just get that out of our game and keep it an even keel we should be good…it’s Game 20 and we’re right in the hunt. I don’t sense anything like the team we had last year. This is a hungry group.”
