The last time the Edmonton Oilers made the NHL playoffs was spring 2006. They've never been back since that summer where they made it to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. After a decade long rebuild and losing season after losing season, the Oilers clinched a playoff berth tonight, in large part to hockey phenom Connor McDavid. The Oilers won the McDavid lottery in 2015, hyped as hockey's LeBron James, and he has turned the team around, currently leading the NHL in scoring as well.
Enjoy Oiler fans. You have waited a long, long time for this.
