Edmonton Oilers hope to capitalize on road-ice advantage as they head out on five-game trip

Edmonton Oilers hope to capitalize on road-ice advantage as they head out on five-game trip

It’s one of the oldest cliches in hockey, when a team lays a stink bomb at home before embarking on a road trip: ‘Maybe it’s good to get out on the road and bond together and play a simpler game and blah, blah, blah …’ It’s the standard answer that few people on either side of the interview ever really believe, but in the case of the Edmonton Oilers right now, it’s true. With just four wins in their first 11 home games, ‘anywhere but Edmonton’ has become a very legitimate battle cry for a 14th-place team running out of time to turn things in the right direction. For some inexplicable reason this season, they have saved their best hockey for the road, where they are 3-3-2 and have a goals-against average of 2.13. At home, since that opening night shutout against Calgary, they are 3-7-0 with a GAA of 4.10. So while a five-game road trip would usually be a harrowing thought for a team hanging on for its playoff life, the crucial five-game haul the Oilers begin Saturday might just be the best thing for them
