The Edmonton Oilers vs. holding leads in hockey games.
It’s an issue that has plagued the Oilers this season and it came to fruition once again Saturday night. They got themselves a 2-0 lead in thanks to two powerplay tallys from Zach Hyman, but that, and some tremendous play by Stuart Skinner, were all that were good.
The Oilers had a nice 10 minutes to start the game, but the 5×5 play was all downhill from there. Hyman’s powerplay goals came at the 15:37 mark of the first period and 15:03 mark of the second, and the Avalanche were able to rally.
It was Nathan MacKinnon who split through Darnell Nurse and Cody Ceci at the 3:06 mark of the third, then former Oiler Brad Hunt, because of course, blasted a point shot home at the 8:19 mark of that frame.
Come overtime, it was Cale Makar who stuck a dagger in the Oilers’ heart.
