There aren't all that many NHL categories in which the struggling Oilers lead the way this season, but in injuries, they're at the head of the class.

Edmonton has accumulated 270 man-games lost to injury heading into Wednesday night's game against the Canucks, 37 more than the second-place Red Wings had prior to their last game.

These totals are taken from game notes provided by team officials prior to their latest games:

For whatever reason, the Rangers and Lightning are routinely two of the league's least injured teams, as you can see from a look back at year's past I put together last season.

For more on this year's totals, this blog offers pretty detailed man-games lost analysis about once a month.
