In recent days the Oilers have recorded a pair of wins over Florida Panthers to pull back into the final series they trailed by the grim margin of 3 games to 0 just a week ago. In each game, a current Oiler set a new standard for postseason playmaking. The men whose records they surpassed? None other than a couple of hallowed names from the club’s own storied past.

 

The dynasty squad of the 1980s provided the franchise and its fans with a proud history, however their epic feats cast a very long shadow over future iterations of the Oilers. The club won the ultimate prize 5 times in a 7-year span; in the process, several of its individual members established a number of scoring records that have stood the test of time.

Well, until recently. We have witnessed one of those records ultimately being broken three times recently—twice in the last week alone—by other Oilers. It’s ideal for supporters of the team.

He joined Wayne Gretzky (eleven times!) and trailblazer Bobby Orr as the only players in NHL history to accomplish the 100-assist milestone during the regular season. On the final day of the season, McDavid would score a century against Nikita Kucherov of Tampa Bay.
