In Game 82 of the 2017-18 Edmonton Oilers season, the ending was bittersweet. With a 3-2 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks in the final seconds of the season, the beleaguered Oil managed to end on a somewhat high note. They scored two goals in regulation, both earning points for Connor McDavid to earn him…
The Oilers snapped their five-game losing streak last night with a gritty win over the high-flying Golden Knights. It was a night of McPoints.
Three McPoints and a win make for a good night. Final Score: 4-3 Oilers
