The Day After is brought to you by NHL Lines site Betway!
It was the Zach Hyman show Saturday night.
He got the Oilers first and third goals of the night and was a key part in Edmonton’s 3-2 victory. His first goal, a powerplay tally, came when he took a cross-ice feed from Connor McDavid firing a shot on net.
While it initially looked like it was Leon Draisaitl’s, the shot actually banked in off Jacob Markstrom and in.
Hyman’s game-winner came with over eight minutes left in the third and was nothing short of a beauty. He battled for a puck behind the Flames’ net flipping a quick pass to McDavid. The give-and-go put Hyman right near the blue paint and was able to direct the pass in.
McDavid, meanwhile, scored one of his own four minutes prior. He carried the puck into the Flames’ zone along the left side of the ice before firing a low-angle shot on net. Somehow, someway, it entered the back of the net.
