Game Highlights 16.0: Tampa Bay Lightning beat Edmonton Oilers 6-4
By Cam Lewis3 months ago
The Edmonton Oilers had their three-game winning streak come to an end as they lost by a score of 6-4 to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Below are the highlights from the game.
THE WRAP UP IS PRESENTED BY BETWAY
Derek Ryan opened the scoring in the first period with a shorthanded goal. Ryan was being hooked relentlessly but Lightning goaltender Jonas Johansson seemed to lose track of the puck and let it slide in five-hole.
James Hamblin extended Edmonton’s lead to 2-0 later in the first period when he sniped the first goal of his NHL career top shelf on Johansson. Hamblin dedicated the goal to his mother who passed away in 2017 after a battle with cancer.
Nikita Kucherov put the Lightning on the board with under one minute left to go in the first period. Kucherov threw a pass into the slot and it deflected off of a stick and past Stuart Skinner.
Kucherov scored again for the Lightning in the second period to tie the game at 2-2. The puck was chipped past Evan Bouchard inside Edmonton’s blueline and Kucherov came up the ice on a two-on-one. Mattias Ekholm went down to block a pass and the puck bounced back to Kucherov who buried a shot past Skinner.
The Oilers regained their lead a few minutes later when Derek Ryan buried his second goal of the game. He had gone 15 games without a goal to start the season and finally got off the schneid.
The Lightning tied the game up at 3-3 a few minutes into the third period. Evan Bouchard wasn’t able to get a puck deep into Tampa’s zone, the Lightning turned it up the ice quickly, and Tanner Jeannot snuck into Edmonton’s zone and fired a one-timer past Skinner.
Bouchard put the Oilers back on top a few minutes later when he carried the puck into Tampa’s zone and ripped a shot past Johansson. Bouchard now has four goals and 16 points through 16 games this season.
The Lightning tied the game yet again after Steven Stamkos completed a bang-bang-bang-bang passing play.
Under one minute later, the Lightning pulled ahead with their first lead of the game. Luke Glendening crashed the net and deflected a pass past Skinner for his second goal of the season.
Mikhail Sergachev sealed the deal for the Lightning with a 195-foot goal while the Oilers had Skinner on the bench for the extra attacker. The empty-net goal made the score 6-4 for Tampa.
