The Oilers have gone 7-13-3 in a head-scratching performance for a team led by stars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Edmonton is fifth in the NHL’s Pacific Division, five points out of a wild-card spot, and has lost its last two games. The Oilers say AHL head coach Jay Woodcroft will take over behind the bench.
