In a tight year like this I don't think there will be many (if any) easy games down the stretch.

Teams that are out of it will likely become spoilers... you know a team like Calgary would just LOVE to beat the Oilers if they are already out and they can take down the Oilers as well.

Same goes for the Canucks... and the Oilers play those two teams 6 fricken times.

Throw in 3 vs the Ducks who are close to unbeatable so far. 1 vs Chicago (might be one of the few easy game for the Oilers. .. 2 vs the Wild who never make it easy plus 2 vs the Blues... just seems brutally tough down the stretch.

I will say this... if the Oilers manage to squeak into the playoffs after this tough schedule I'd personally give them a good shot at a first round upset because they'd have to be playing well and like a playoff team just to make the playoffs.
