Video: Oilers booed by own fans after sixth straight loss

Sunday November 23rd, 2014

The Edmonton Oilers lost their sixth straight game on Saturday night, a 7-1 defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks, and were met by boos from fans afterwards. 

As the Oilers made their way off the ice to the locker room in Rexall Place, players and coaches got booed by their own fans while walking through a tunnel area where fans can stand within several feet of the team.


The loss was the Edmonton's seventh straight at home, and the defeat to Chicago completed an 0-5 record on the team's November homestand. The Oilers have not won a game since Nov. 9 and have not won at home since Oct. 27.

Edmonton has not made the playoffs since the 2005-06 season. Last season, the Oilers finished with a Western Conference-low 67 points. 

In 2014-15, the Oilers are currently tied for an NHL-low 14 points with a 6-13-2 record. The team is led by right winger Jordan Eberle, who has 14 points, and center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who has 13. 

Edmonton plays the Stars on the road on Tuesday.
