Last night in their 3-1 win against the Calgary Flames, the Oilers extended their winning streak to 13 games. They've eclipsed old marks made held by the Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Stuart Skinner also made history. He became the first goaltender in Edmonton to get 10 straight wins and allowing two or fewer goals for 11 games in a row.

"Oilers win 13th in a row and become first team from the Western Conference and first Canadian team to win 13.

Set franchise record with 11th consecutive game allowing two or fewer goals.

Skinner ties franchise record for goalie with 10 straight wins.

EDM is 21-3 in last 24."

Hyman and Knoblauch Reflect on Historic Winning Streak



Forward Zach Hyman shared his thoughts on their record-breaking streak in a recent interview:

"When we did the (franchise record) 10-game streak we eclipsed the Oilers, the 80s teams, now it's the old Montreal team. When you're in the moment you just go out there and play, but I'm sure it'll be something cool to look back on [how] we now hold this streak for a Canadian team. We want to keep winning, so we'll see where it goes."


Head coach Kris Knoblauch also shared his thoughts on this impressive streak. You can watch what he had to say in the next video:
