The Edmonton Oilers are finally back in the playoff race after a stretch of six games without a win and a 10-game losing streak that ended on Saturday.
The Oilers have lost five straight, the last coming last October.
It was a season-low for the Oilers, who were 12-8-1 before a two-game sweep by the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 17.
But it was still the most wins in the NHL in 2016-17, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
The Oilers have been on a winning streak that has lasted almost eight weeks.
The past five games have been wins for the first time in Edmonton history.
The Edmonton Oilers have scored at least 1,000 goals in four straight games.
It’s the longest streak in the league, the longest since a six-game run in the 2011-12 season.
This is the first six-gamer of the season in Edmonton since 2003-04.
This season has been tough for the team.
It went 11-24-1 in 2015-16, the worst record in the Stanley Cup playoffs since 2000-01.
The team was 10-16-1 last season, but lost three games by a combined score of 3-1.
They have gone 7-11-1 this season.
