With an incredible core of young players, including Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier and Kevin Lowe, the Oilers made a name for themselves very early, making the Stanley Cup playoffs in only their first season. Although they were swept in three games by the Philadelphia Flyers and their second regular season gave them mediocre results in the standings, the Oilers scored a stunning upset in the first round of the 1981 playoffs, defeating the strongly-favoured Montreal Canadiens three games to none, the Oilers making a case that they needed swift respect.
In the 1981-82 season, the Oilers became the league's strongest team in the regular season, but youthful lapses of discipline led to their losing the first playoff round. In 1983 they made it to their first-ever Stanley Cup finals, but were swept in four games by the three-time defending champions, the New York Islanders. A year later, however, Edmonton defeated the Islanders in five games (four to one) to claim their first Stanley Cup.
Edmonton repeated Cup success in 1985, but were knocked out of the playoffs in 1986 when Steve Smith scored on his own net in the seventh game of the Campbell Conference finals against the rival Calgary Flames.
In 1987, Edmonton returned to the finals to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers in a tense seven-game series. In 1988, the Oilers made their strongest-ever run to the Cup, losing only 2 games of 18 and sweeping the Boston Bruins in the final to claim their fourth trophy in five years.
In 2006, the Edmonton Oilers just missed out on winning the Stanley Cup yet again to the Carolina Hurricanes. After entering the playoffs in eighth position in the Western Conference, the Edmonton Oilers defeated all odds to climb their way to game 7 in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
During their brief 25 year history as a professional hockey club, the Edmonton Oilers have experienced tremendous highs and contemplative lows. They have brought home 5 Stanley Cups and their fans have been witness to some of the greatest players, coaches and management the league has ever produced.
