VIDEO: Oilers mercilessly booed by fans following loss to Blackhawks

Chris LaFrance / USA TODAY Sports

Things are getting ugly in Edmonton.

With management reportedly searching for a top-line center and the head coach calling Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks the longest game he can remember, the Oilers' faithful are voicing their displeasure even louder than usual.

Case in point: as the players left the ice following the Saturday's defeat, fans of all ages mercilessly booed and taunted the team.

Since watching their team advance all the way to the Stanley Cup Final in 2006, the Oilers have routinely finished at or near the bottom of the NHL standings.

They find themselves in the league's basement through 21 games this season, so there's really no mystery as to how things have devolved to this point.
