Oilersnation Everyday: How long can the streak last?
1 month ago
It was an unexpected goaltending duel on Saturday night between the Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators. Up until late in the second period, neither team could find a way past Stuart Skinner or Anton Forsberg. Between them, they made 72 saves in what finished with the Oilers winning 3-1.
Offensively, Zach Hyman was the hero for Edmonton. The Oilers forward scored his third hat trick of the season to take his goal tally to 25 on the year. Along with Hyman, Evan Bouchard had a three point game, all assists, and Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins each got assists in the win.
With that 3-1 victory, the Oilers move into a playoff spot ahead of the St Louis Blues with both teams sitting at 41 points. Edmonton is still behind the Vancouver Canucks by 12 points but they are creeping closer to the Los Angeles Kings and Vegas Golden Knights for either 2nd or 3rd in the Pacific Division.
