Oilers Game Recaps

Oilers Visual Recap 25: Eight points from McDavid and Draisaitl powers Edmonton past Montreal

The Edmonton Oilers kicked off a four-game homestand with plenty of goals against the visiting Montreal Canadiens. The game saw power play goals for both teams, but the Oilers were more efficient. On just 22 shots, the Oilers scored five times with the duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl combining for eight points.

Three straight power play goals from Edmonton to open up the second put them ahead, but Montreal tied it up at 3–3. A late period goal from Darnell Nurse put the Oilers up by one heading to the third, and that stood as the game-winner.

A big credit to the Oilers’ power play and scoring ability being a big reason they scored as many goals as they did, as they didn’t generate nearly as many chances as Montreal.
