Facing off against the undefeated Carolina Hurricanes, the Edmonton Oilers had a big task at hand to try and stop themselves from being in a three-game losing skid. In a bit of a track meet of a game, the Oilers came out on top to get back into the win column and hand the Hurricanes their first loss.
Six different Oilers, or more specifically, six different forwards scored to show off their scoring depth. While the Hurricanes saw Andrei Svechnikov earn his first career hat trick against the Oilers, it was the Edmonton’s team scoring effort that fueled them to victory.
Zach Hyman started it off in the first period and Connor McDavid capped it off with an empty-netter to seal the win. The game’s scoresheet was a long one with ten goals in total between the two teams.
