It looks like we're dead even with the Red Wings even down to the fourth point in the tie-break procedure.
I can read but I don't see anything on there that puts them ahead. If point 4 for is goal differential since the Oilers are -1 and Detroit is -2, I would think the Oilers should be ahead.

Wouldn't worry about it by the end of season they still shouldn't be tied.
No you receive a +1 in GF if you win a shootout and a +1 in GA if you lose one, you don't calculate that after the fact.

Not that it really matters at this early stage of the season... but yes the Oilers should be in 6th right now... plus they've only played 3 home games whereas Detroit has played 4 and Minny has played 5 on home ice.

Are you sure about that? It would throw off the actual goal differential stats, and I believe they only count the shootouts for the tie breaking procedure and not the actual differential stats.

If you add up the scores (including the SO game's total score) you get 20 for GF and 21 for GA; the same numbers under GF and GA on nhl.com

They aren't going to win them all so which games are the OK or excusable ones to lose then. As long as the losses don't become losing streaks and as long as the team can reflect and learn from mistakes then why panick now. I'd rather them lose a few now than down the stretch, it exposes the dead weight and allows changes to be made if need be. The SJ game was a close game we almost won and we aren't the only team to be rope a doped by the Av's. The Oilers don't need another hot start, they need to win at a higher pct. all season long.
