Oilers Visual Recap 45: Edmonton fends off Golden Knights to secure third straight victory

The Edmonton Oilers had a chance to string together three straight wins for the first time since the end of November. However, they had to face off against the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights to do so. It was a tall task for a team that has struggled with inconsistencies, but the Oilers did what they needed to do.

Opening the game with two quick goals, Edmonton got ahead early and stayed ahead. Each time the Golden Knights scored, the Oilers responded to maintain their lead. The game went from 2–0, 3–1, and finally 4–2. Toward the end of the second period, Vegas scored once more to bring the game to one goal, and that’s how the two teams spent the third period—Edmonton defending the one-goal lead, Vegas looking for the game-tying goal.

However, the third remained scoreless and Edmonton edged out the Golden Knights for the 4–3 win.
