Hot off a win against the Seattle Kraken, the Edmonton Oilers looked to keep the good times rolling with a home date against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Jack Campbell started in goal again for the Oilers.
Facing one of the best teams in the NHL over the past several seasons, the Oilers had all the reasons they needed to not win this game. Fortunately, they didn’t need to use any of them. A full team effort highlighted by a Connor McDavid game-winner in the third period extended the win streak to five games.
It was a big win and an important two points for the Oilers in the Western Conference playoff race. Charts from the game are below.
