Oilers out of the playoffs

My beloved Edmonton Oilers lost tonight. Coupled with a Phoenix win, that eliminates Edmonton from playoff contention and clinches playoff spots for Los Angeles, Phoenix, and (I'll never hear the end of this one) Vancouver. :-(

The Oilers had made the playoffs the last 5 seasons. I guess the only consolation here is that Dallas didn't make it either.

Damn.
