So no, the next 5 games will not define the Oilers, even if they creep up the standings for a few days. They'll drop down again by the end and miss the playoffs. Debbie downer I know, but the April schedule is tougher.
I don't think our record will be that bad in the last 14.. The three vs. Calgary we should win at least 2, if not all 3. Especially if they trade Iginla. We often play well against Chicago, Phoenix and Colorado. The Minnesota game and the Anaheim games are going to be very tough and the LA, VAN games are a toss up IMO. If we win what we're expected to I believe we will go 7-4-3. The Calgary, Phoenix and Colorado games are must win. That should be 5 games we win.

I think this part of the season is the toughest part because we never play good against Nashville or St.Louis, and Columbus and Vancouver are in the same situation as us battling hard. I would be happy to get out 2-2-1. Anything better is great.
