The Edmonton Oilers have dropped three games in a row. The Carolina Hurricanes exploded with four goals in the first period and cruised to a 6-3 win. Below are the highlights from the game.


The Hurricanes opened the scoring just under 10 minutes into the first period. Carolina had started to ramp up the pressure in Edmonton’s zone and Jesper Fast was able to sneak in behind their defencemen and knock in a loose puck from the crease.
Carolina extended their lead to 2-0 on the very next shift. Jack Drury and Michael Bunting went up the ice on a two-on-one and passed the puck back and forth before Drury managed to squeeze it just inside the post.
The Hurricanes continued the pressure and the floodgates opened up. Philip Broberg and Ryan McLeod weren’t able to break the puck out from behind Edmonton’s net and Teuvo Teravainen was on the doorstep to bury the mistake.
Seth Jarvis scored for the Hurricanes shortly after to cap off a rally that saw Carolina score four goals in just over five minutes. Jarvis completely burned Vincent Desharnais and sniped a shot past Stuart Skinner to make the score 4-0.
The Oilers got one on the board before the end of the first period with a goal on their first power play opportunity of the game. Evan Bouchard fed Leon Draisaitl down low and he sauced a pass through the crease that Zach Hyman was able to get past Antti Raanta.
Carolina got that goal back early in the second period. Martin Necas was able to skate into the high slot in Edmonton’s zone untouched and he buried a shot past Calvin Pickard, who came into the game in relief of Skinner to start the second frame.
The Oilers were able to score again late in the second period to make the score 5-2. With Carolina on a power play, Warren Foegele and Ryan McLeod brought the puck up ice and Mattias Ekholm joined the rush and buried his second goal of the season.
Edmonton brought the score to 5-3 a few minutes into the third period with their first even-strength goal of the game. Connor McDavid worked the puck out from behind the net, threw a backhand pass into the crease, and Zach Hyman was there to bury his second goal of the game.
That was as close as the Oilers would get as Brent Burns iced the game with an empty-net goal with just over one minute left to go in the third period.
