Markus Granlund could be The Answer. Final Score: 4-3 Oilers in the shootout
The clock runs out on another week in Edmonton, Bakersfield, Wichita, and all around the world. That means it’s time for another Prospect Update.
After dropping the ball against the LA Kings, the Edmonton Oilers showed up and redeemed themselves last night in Las Vegas. They got a little bit of production from their bottom-six, a bounceback performance from Mike Smith, and five points from McDavid and Draisaitl. It was really a complete performance. Tonight, they’ll look to keep…
While Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl stole the show as they have countless times already this season for the Edmonton Oilers in Saturday’s 4-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights, there was more to the two points they plucked than that before jumping a jet to Arizona to face the Coyotes tonight.
As Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl continue to dominate the league as the most explosive duo on the ice, the Edmonton Oilers bottom-six is starting to show up in their own right. Jujhar Khaira, Markus Granlund, and Gaetan Haas, namely, are all have started to bring some offensive contributions to the club.
Welcome, friends, to the second half of the back-to-back weekend, where our beloved Edmonton Oilers are only hours away from facing off against the Arizona Coyotes.
After a big win on the road against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Oilers will be back in action on Sunday night for a game in Arizona against the Coyotes.
