Adam Larsson didn't mince words on his own performance after the Edmonton Oilers dropped a 7-4 contest at home to the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

"They came out hot, we didn't and a lot of that is on me," Larsson said after the contest. "I'm playing so bad right now, I don't know what it is, but I need it to stop as soon as possible."

The 26-year-old was a minus-3 in just under 18 minutes of ice time against the Hurricanes, marking the fourth time in his last seven games that he's posted that rating. The Oilers have posted a 3-4 record in that span, and have lost 11 of their last 16 contests.

As for the reasons behind the struggles? Larsson doesn't think it's a lack of effort.

"I feel like I'm working hard, I feel like I'm just too passive, not skating," he said. "This is as bad as it's been and it's as bad as it will be. I can guarantee you that."

Larsson gets his next chance to break out of his funk on Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings.
