The Oilers almost lost another game they led going into the third period. Fortunately for them, the game went to overtime where few can match up to Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.
It ain’t pretty, but the Canadians came out on top tonight! This morning, I took a look at the game preview for this matchup and had to just kind of laugh to myself.
Despite carrying a 2-0 lead into the final frame, the Oilers got dropped 3-2 after a third period pounding by the Bruins. Their one-game winning streak is over.
We won if we ignore that hockey games are three periods. Final Score: 3-2 Bruins
Thank you, Connor. Final Score: 4-2 Oilers
Make it six losses in a row. Final Score: 1-0 Coyotes
I feel bad for the people who paid a bunch of money to fly down and watch that game.
If what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas then why do I know that the Oilers lost again? Final Score: 4-1 Golden Knights
The Oilers are the most gracious of hosts. Final Score: 7-5 Panthers
At least the comeback was fun. Final Score: 6-4 Sharks
That arena is cursed. Burn it down. Final Score: 3-2 Ducks
With a good chunk of Edmonton’s remaining games coming against the Pacific Division, there was some reason for extremely cautious optimism about a late-season run. But last night’s loss to the Kings in Los Angeles effectively dried up all of the excitement garnered from the incredibly stomping of the first-place Lightning earlier in the week.
