That was pretty.
It was a strong, 60-minute performance from the Oilers — arguably their best of the year — that helped carry them to a 3-1 victory against a tough St. Louis Blues team on the road Tuesday night.
Jesse Puljujarvi got the party started six minutes into the game when he tipped home a Darnell Nurse point shot. While the latter was initlally given credit for it, it changed during the intermisison. Puljujarvi helped the Oilers gain the zone by firing a stretch pass to Warren Foegele, then he drove right to the high-danger zone in front of the net where he was able to get a stick on the shot.
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, meanwhile, scored career goal number 200 last night — a tally that stood as the game winner. Connor McDavid found him with a cross-crease pass, and Nuge was able to bang the puck home.
Zach Hyman later added on an empty-net goal, and some big saves from Stuart Skinner played a big part in the victory, too.
